Great cheap, basic ruler
from Fremont, CA
Comments about Westcott/C-Thru Westcott C-Thru Flexible Inch/Metric Ruler:
Know that the plastic this ruler is made out of is fairly thin. If you bend it, it will permanently become distorted and will no longer have a straight edge. Given that the rulers are under a dollar, you get what you pay for. I mainly use these rulers while sketching and when I need to see the drawing underneath as I'm planning my lines.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This ruler is ridiculously thin but I really like the squared-off ends with the numbers at the edges for quick and easy measuring.
Very Good Ruler for Less than a Dollar

This one gets the details right. Rulers perform a basic measurement function that is not improved by the graphic design creativity I find in other products. My only problem is not with the ruler, but with the difficulty of tax-exempt purchases from Blick. That is a pain.
You get what you pay for
My first criteria is met: the ruler is light in weight. It is therefore user friendly for measuring when sketching. However, it is too thin to draw a line. Since I paint on sanded paper and boards, the numbers scratch really fast. I buy a few as they are so cheap.

Well, you can see through them, but they scratch easily, and then you can't. And they really are more measuring sticks that rulers. They're too thin to hold a pen or pencil edge while drawing a line. Fine for first graders, I suppose.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I only use to measure it's too thin as a straight edge It's great being see threw simple to use would recommend as a ruler not a straight edge Its a little to flemsy for a straight edge needs to be thicker
Love this ruler
from des moines, wa
I have had one of these rulers for about 8-10 years before it broke on a trip. I love this ruler for borders and it has multiple lines I can base borders off of. I have lost it many times due to it being clear but it has also stood up to being shoved into bags as I travel from place to place. It is a must have for my art. So glad they still make it because I need to order another one or two.

I love these rulers because they are so thin, flexible and accurate. I've purchased many of them to do my Bargue drawings. The reason I've purchased so many is because they are so transparent they seem to disappear into thin air! Fortunately, they are so inexpensive it doesn't cost much to replace them. Buy more than one!
