How should I store my ruler(s)?

Almost all Omnigrid® rulers come with a pre-drilled hole that allows you to hang them on a hook if you have a pegboard available in your work area.

The Omnigrid® wooden ruler rack is a great option if space is a concern. The wooden ruler rack is 19” long and includes 5 linear slots that allow the rulers to sit upright, making them visible as well as accessible.

What is the first Omnigrid ruler I should buy?

The Omnigrid® 6" x 24" ruler is great for beginners as well as experienced quilters. It is versatile, and can be used for many quilting measurements and projects, so it's an ideal first ruler.

How can I prevent my ruler from slipping on the fabric?

To minimize slipping, use a more balanced pressure on you Omnigrid® ruler when cutting. You could also apply some optional products to the underside of the rulers that help prevent slipping.

InvisiGrip™ is a clear cinyl cling product that can be cut and applied to the underside of rulers to create a non-slip surface. InvisiGrip™ can be removed and reused without leaving a residue.

What is the difference between Omnigrid and Omnigrip rulers?

The original Omnigrid® rulers are printed using a patented 2-color process of black and yellow ink which makes it easier to see lines on all different colors of fabric.

Omnigrip was developed to help eliminate slipping on fabric. A non-slip solution is added to the green ink that helps provide a slip resistant surface that gently grips fabric when slight pressure is applied. The green ink highlights a 1/8-inch section along the outside of the ruler, and 1/8 inch on either side of the inch lines giving you a great visual ¼ inch section for checking seam allowances as well.

How do I clean my ruler?

We suggest you clean your Omnigrid® ruler by using warm water with a few drops of a mild dishwashing detergent. Use a soft cloth and rub gently. Dusting your rulers occasionally is recommended. 

What can I do to get sticky residue off of my ruler?

We suggest using household rubbing alcohol to remove any glue or sticky surface from your Omnigrid® ruler. Use a soft cloth and gently rub. Never use fingernail polish remover. Never use anything abrasive on your ruler.
