    My ruler 12 inches begins to loose it's marks. I never expect any thing like this. :(

    My 6-1/2" ruler did the same thing. I guess I used it so much that I wore the lines off! :lol: I took a black permanent Sharpie marker and redrew them.

    Yes, as long as you redraw the lines carefully. There were still a few places on my ruler where I could see where the original lines were, and I used those as guide. :)

    I've used my 6 1/2 x 24" ruler so much that you can barely read it and it has so many knicks in it. Hopefully Santa brings me a new one.

    Oh dear... that sounds like a fatal injury! (Fortunately only to the mat, not YOU!)

    I've started to rotate my rulers and not use the same one over and over. I have several of the same rulers I use the most that I buy when I see them on sale.

    When I bought my Invisigrip to help with mat slippage, the salesperson said that, more importantly, Invisigrip keeps the numbers and lines from wearing off rulers. Nice to know.
