Hello, i want you to make my custom PCB stencil using JLCPCB service. I am using Sprint Layout application. There are two questions unclear to me:

1. In which layer stencil must be drawn? I think it must be drawn in the top copper layer, am i right? Is PCB outline layer is needed?

2. Can i include text in my stencil? I want it to be cut with laser through stencil in the same way as normal pads. I have included picture with example what i want to do.
