    Question Quick! Which Shape Cut ruler would you buy?

    I already have the original one, which I think is 12"x12". JoAnn's online has both the 12"x18" and the 20"x23" on sale right now (with free shipping too, code SNP56). I really can't afford both.

    The only negative I found about the largest one is that the cutting slots are very close to the carry hole and edge, which makes it easy to break. I think this one is hard acrylic also? Whereas the two smaller ones are flexible plastic?

    Anyway, any comments to help me decide between the two larger sizes would be most appreciated!

    I'd go with the 12 x 18. I have a 6 x 18 and love it but often wish it were wider. It is pretty flexible.

    I have both the 12x12 and 12x18 and I'd go with the 12x18 you can cut more and have to move the ruler less. I think the 20x23 one is only in 2 1/2 inch increments if I remember correct and I personally didn't feel it would be as useful as the 1/2 inch increments on the 12x12 and 12x18

    I would have to say that I would stick with the 12x12. The 20x23 I believe is only in increments of 2 1/2". If you do a lot of 2 1/2" increments then I would probably go with it.
