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.

Elegant by any measure!
By Sir Drawsalot
from Santa Rosa, CA
Comments about Blick Aluminum Rulers:
The Blick aluminum ruler is elegant with its smooth lines, permanent lettering, and confident feel in the hand. The ruler is tough and washable, will stand up to being taped, felt-penned and used as an edge to tear light weight paper. A real value, especially when bought in quantity as these rulers will last through many years of daily use.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Numbers wear off.
By Ms. Fitz
I was thrilled to be able to afford a class set of 18" ruler, but then, the numbers and lines began to wear off. I have had them for only 2 years. I am disappointed.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Numbers Rub Off
By Art Teacher
from Tulare, CA
These rulers would be great, except for that the numbers/lines rub off. They don't even make it through a whole school year in my classroom.
Merchant response: Thank you for your feedback! It sounds like you would be happier with the Blick Aluminum Non-Slip Rulers. The markings on those are photo-anodized, so they'll never rub off — even with solvents. If we can be of further assistance, please feel free to call 1-800-933-2542 (weekdays 8am - 5:30pm CST) or email firstname.lastname@example.org. We're happy to help!
Excellent service and great prices! Always satisfied.

We use Blick metal rulers in our art classes and the students LOVE them. Great products at BLICK. Thanks.

Great deal, a little flexible.
Good, but a bit thinner now
from Etna, NH
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.

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.
