Old-school rules! A retro solid oak 12" ruler, made in the UK, laser-engraved with a personalised message - a unique gift for dads.
We don't care how high-tech the world gets - sometimes you need some old-fashioned analogue equipment you can rely on.
Our engraved oak rulers are a very handy and practical gift. They will be treasured for years, especially with a special message laser-engraved along them - and it will never rub off!
SUMMER 2014: PLEASE NOTE our workshops are now closed for our summer shutdown, we will be very happy to continue taking orders, but products will not be made and dispatched until the first week of September.
The rulers are offered in a choice of fonts (scroll through the pictures to see the fonts) and we don't place any restriction on the amount of words - we can make the text smaller to fit, but they do get harder to read. Sometimes less is more...
Included in the price is one line of engraving on the front (scale side). If you would like us to engrave a special message on the back too, please select this in the options and fill out the relevant message lines in the options - you can have up to three lines. All text will be centred and sized to look good, typically a little larger on the front and a little smaller on the back. You can even have different fonts on the front and back. Please note any accessories in the photos aren't included.
Made from solid oak, the rulers are very hard wearing and will look better and better the more use they get - there's nothing like a bit of patina on a well-loved object to cherish in future. Unlike some of our other products, we don't coat these with danish oil, as they are handled so often, and it is not needed for protection.
The laser engraving is a very clean and neat process, and it won't degrade because it burns down into the wood. We fine-sand the edges and corners so they are very comfortable in use. As these rulers consist of nothing apart from pure natural oak, they are a very natural and friendly item - and they are suitable for use by children. Please note however that they are not toys.
The rulers are approx 31cm long, 4cm wide and 5mm thick, and are very light.
