you didn't say what kind of templates- but I often place a ruler over my templates & cut my shapes- when they are straight edges- if the template is an odd shape or for some reason I feel tracing would be better I do that- since the outside edge of your template includes your seam allowance- a pencil line is not going to effect the size of your finished shape- if you feel your line is *heavy-thick* you can always cut on the inside edge of the line instead of the outside of the line.
