Want to know more about School Rulers

Keep a ruler handy for school and art projects

One of the reasons every school supply list includes a wooden or plastic ruler is because it's vital for almost every subject. Typically measuring 12" (l) x 1 to 2" (w), these tools make it easy for students to learn fractions and both the imperial and metric systems. Some are hole-punched to fit inside binders or have a single hole to hang them on a locker hooks or storage racks. Rulers are excellent implements for drawing projects, since they produce straight lines. This is especially beneficial when cutting with scissors or utility knives, so art works are as perfect as possible.

A plastic ruler is a convenient tool

Depending upon preference and need, there are features to consider when selecting a ruler. Some have raised centers for firmer gripping, while others have a center line that acts as a magnifier. Beveled edges, a pencil groove, and shatter-proof flexibility may also affect your decision. Select models are specifically designed for quilters, and some fold to measure angles. In addition to plastic, there are measuring tools made of lacquered wood, recycled material, or stainless steel, as well as options that contain anti-microbial protection. If you need help with aligning staplers on oddly sized reports, look for a 7-inch meter stick with an extended top tab, or conversely, a jumbo one that measures over 100 inches.
