    The yellow lines actually give me a headache. I prefer the black lined Olfa, with a slight 'frost' finish.

    this is why i prefer the lazer-etched fluorescent rulers. they are so easy to see precisely with.

    Hate'm, Creative Grids are all I use. I made the mistake of buying all the Omnigrids when I first started and couldn't figure out why everything wasn't quite right, the lines are way too thick for my liking.

    So they sit in a drawer.

    OK you've peaked my interest - what is a laser-etched ruler, or who makes them?

    I have trouble too and I've switched to Creative Grids, which I love! Easy to see and good built in gripage, if that's a word.

    OK looked them up. Sold at Connecting Threads. That's a start. Thanks

    I have mono vision also, and I LOVE my Omnigrid and Omnigrip rulers!
    Do not like the rulers with black, white, or red lines~
