Paper RulerHow many times have you been out and don’t have a Ruler to measure something you saw at the store or to see if it will fit an application you are working on at home.

Well I have found an easy solution for you. What you need to do is to keep with you is a paper ruler in your wallet/organizer. And Mitchell Charity’s Site he has placed several different versions that you can print out on your printer (as long as you don’t allow the printer software to resize it) that you can cut out and keep with you in your organizer.

I printed out the Metric and Inch Ruler. Hey you really never know when you need an exact measurement (well a pretty darn close measurement). I put these up against my nice metal ruler that I keep on my desk and these are really close.

This is a nice cheap  inexpensive way to add a measurement device to your organizer.

Here is the Link to Print out the Free Printable Rulers: FREE Printable Rulers

You Need to click on the PDF version and Download it to your Computer and Use Adobe PDF Viewer to print these to your InkJet or Laser Printer. The PS Version is the PostScript Version that can be used to edit. But not easy to do. The Following Rulers are available on Vendian.or:

One Foot – Metric – centimeter – Multiple on one page – etc…
Remember to Print these click on the above link and use ADOBE PDF Viewer to print to your own inkjet or laser printer.

Another tip is to use a dollar bill in you don’t have a paper ruler. It is 6 inches long and can help in a pinch.

Marie – Thanks – I never thought of that – Thats a great idea.
Fold in half and its 3 inches and then Half again 1.5 inches.
You can do a good estimate but these are so simple to print out and place where you need them. I keep mine in my Levengers Int Pocket Briefcase

I can open that link – but when I click on one of the rulers it comes up blank. Do I have to have a special program on my PC to be able to view and print them?
