Welcome to dickblick
Blick's most popular rulers are in use at schools, studios, and sign shops everywhere! These 1-1/8" wide, straight flat rulers have plain backs and large, distinct markings in 8ths and 16ths.
For your health and safety, we now use waterbased ink instead of lead-based ink for the markings on our rulers. Please note that they may be more likely to rub off over time or in demanding classroom settings.

Good, but a bit thinner now
from Etna, NH
Comments about Blick Aluminum Rulers:
The old standby 18" metal ruler, but I was a bit disappointed to see that they are now apparently thinner than the old Johnson Level J118s. Now around 3/32" thick compared to the old ones which were a full 1/16" thick. May not make a difference in most cases, but working with 1/16" balsa sheet stock (and using these rulers as straight-edge guides for razor cutting), that may become an issue. Blick price was quite reasonable, however. Glad to see the markings are identical, still easy to read.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I use the rulers for my high school art classes. Fairly sturdy, only issue is within 2 years of usage the numbers and lines will totally rub off. I use them as straight edges at that point in time.

Great if only the numbers wouldn't rub off!
By Disappointed teacher
from Carmi, IL
I am a high school art teacher and I order these rulers every year. For the past couple of years, the numbers have rubbed off on my students hands and their art work. Last year, the company gave me a credit, which I greatly appreciated. I decided to give the rulers a try again this year and the same thing happened. This ruler is exactly what I need, but I need to be able to read the numbers.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Perfect for my classroom
from Norfork, AR
They are durable for my classroom.
Great for the Money
from Sorrento, Louisiana
I use this aluminum ruler in my workshop whenever I need to measure things that make long tape, or yard stick, cumbersome.Not only that this ruler will not rust, the general quality and it's great price is just hard to beat. The markings are a lot more clear than what I used to have. Great value!
Metal Rulers are Awesome for Durability
By Middle School Principal
from Fairborn, OH
These metal rulers hold up so much better in a classroom a setting. They are durable, but the longer length is a benefit, too, with students using art and presentation materials that are over-sized. We like them so much we've ordered 2 classroom sets.
from Whidbey Island, WA
I bought these rulers to use for measuring mat board, foam board, etc., for framing my artwork and found them to be well worth the money. What was really helpful was the fact that given the prices i was able to get an array of sizes. I'm a professional artist and own a small gallery, so I'm constantly measuring one thing or another. It's wonderful to have these in all the places I need them so I don't have to go searching for one. My only caution is that they are not heavy weight, so exercise care not to bend them.
Good general purpose ruler
from Wichita, KS
Nice basic ruler for general classroom use. It's sturdy and should last.
