How to quickly print a ruler

I was stuck today. I couldn’t find a ruler. Thankfully it’s very easy to print an accurate ruler on a piece of paper that you can use to measure things.

Step 1: Download a pdf with a ruler from here:

Step 2: Print it full-size.

You can print the PDF straight from your web browser, but make sure you select 100% under the ‘Scale’ option so that the ruler comes out the right size.

Here the size defaults to 93% – I needed to manually tell it to print at 100%
