    Mine all have a small hole in them for hanging so I use a shower curtain hook and hook them all together and hang them on my floor lamp in my sewing area. You could also hang them on the wall with the hook.

    Pegboard and before that, several Hercules hooks in the drywall.

    I have a wooden rack like the on pictured in the link. Someone's husband in my guild makes them and they are sold at the annual quilt show. He finishes them so beautifully, and rubs them down nice and smooth. When I close up the quilt area to become a living room for company, etc., I have a plastic rack on the wall in my little craft/quilt closet. It's the closet under the stairs like Harry Potter's bedroom. I must admit I'm bad about putting them in place while I'm working, though, and they end up underneath random bits of fabric all over the place. I love neat systems, but am bad about follow through when I'm being creative.

    I bought the hanger that looks like a belt hanger. I didn't like it because the ruler I wanted was behind all the others and you had to take all the other rulers off to get it off. So I found some snap rings that where big enough to go in my rulers. I put those on my rulers and loaded the snap rings on the belt hanger. I just unsnap the ring and take thr ruler off. Very compact, I hand it on a hook by my cutting table.
    It is what it is ...deal with it.

    Wish we could see a picture.

    You have all come up with some very good ideas, thank you so much. The one I saw was like a 3 inch board running up and down, okay vertical on the wall and the slits were cut in it like in the board Nantie showed, but then they were loaded so they were vertical, didn't take up much space because I could put it on a wall that can't be used for anything else. It is a cement chimney that I painted over and sticks too far out for shelving, but I could put rulers up it. I wish I could remember things better. Thanks for everyones help and ideas.

    That is really nice, I can see why you love it. It would get my rulers up off of my table too.

    I agree- pegboard works great for keeping them handy. I keep all of mine on it.

    At an OFFICE SUPPLY STORE, get a desk top file holder. It is a rack with slots keeping numerous files standing up and can hold numerous rulers of different sizes. I use two of them in my sewing room I can easily see what I have and tahey take up less room with none getting lost in the mix.

    He charges $39.95 plus shipping. If you go his web site you can see all the finishes he offers. His work is quality.

    I keep small speciality rulers and templates in plastic binder pockets with the instruction sheets. They are then put in binders and fit with magazines and books on a shelf. Having the instruction sheet handy is vital to me!

    My rulers are hanging on an old wire shoe rack mounted to a door in my sewing room. I have a clear plastic bag hanging on it now, it stores the tiny square rulers and point trimmers.Name:  HPIM1866.jpg

    Pegboard! I can't say enough about how wonderful it is. My BF and I have been redoing our lower level and in my sewing area the upper half of the wall is pegboard - by my cutting station its' great for hanging my rulers and a rotary cutter, by my sewing machine area it holds everything that I don't want to clutter up my sewing table. Cleanup is a breeze!!!

    I have one of those ruler holders from JoAnn's sitting on top of one of those plastic 3 drawer "dresser". I think it has 6 or 7 slots in it.

    I have my rulers hanging from S hooks spaced out on a length of brass chain that hangs from a peg. This chain holds approximately 30 rulers from the different S hooks linked in.
    Happy fingers, happy heart.
