Free Designer’s Ruler from Jackprints!


PaperSpecs arranged a special gift for designers, and it seems so valuable I just had to pass it along:

Jakprints Designer’s Ruler

Developed to help eliminate all those yellow, tattered, Post-it notes that all designers seem to have around their monitors, the ruler shows unit conversions, common fractions, font sizes, envelope sizes, CMYK color density charts and more.

“My most beloved part,” says Jakprints Art Director Ted Barnes, “are the inch increments rendered as decimals instead of fractions.”
