    Oh that's weird. I thought I linked directly to the product, but it doesn't, and there doesn't seem to be a way to do it. Let me see if I can find it somewhere else.

    The product is "Invisigrip." I'll look for a link on a different page.

    http://www.softexpressions.com/softw...InvisiGrip.php

    And . . . I changed the link above too.

    Hi Catrancher!
    I use it on every ruler I own and wouldn't be without it. If you decide to try it, hope you're as satisfied as I am.

    It works OK. I've had this on some of my rulers for quite a while. If you can't afford to buy new Creative Grid rulers, which I love, the is a pretty good substitute. Sandpaper dots work well also.

    Thanks. That helps. I was cutting half the day yesterday, and I put so much pressure on my ruler that my hand is killing me now!

    it comes on a roll and can be cut to fit your ruler. it works well enough. i later just updated my rulers bit by bit to Omnigrip ones which i love.

    I had something similar on my rulers, don't know if it is the exact same thing. I didn't find it a big help and switched to sandpaper dots. Wish I could afford to buy all the Omnigrip ones.

    I have it on my longer rulers - they don't slip out of position when I'm making the long cuts. I think it's a useful product. :thumbup:

    I love it! I use it mostly on my long rulers when cutting strips and it doesn't stick as bad as sandpaper dots so you can still slide the ruler over for the next cut.

    I love it. But, I did not coat the entire ruler with it but just used strips as you do need to be able to slide the ruler a little.

    I have it on one of my rulers. Didn't notice a difference, so I didn't bother putting it on the rest.

    I have it and didn't think it worked well. I prefer the sandpaper dots.

    I suspected that about the sandpaper dots. It sounds like this allows you to slide the ruler to make fine adjustments. Is that right?

    Got this at Joann's with a coupon. I didn't cover the whole ruler, just cut sections & put it on, especially the edges, etc.
    So far I've been pleased with it. Found another couple of rulers that I don't use much & missed those so I'll have to compare.

    Yes, you can slide the ruler to make fine adjustments. And I'm more of a slider than a picker-upper LOL. I tried sandpaper quite awhile ago. It's just not for me........ Good luck!

    I use the sandpaper dots there down about halfway on the page.
    And . . . I changed the link above too.
