Strips work a lot better than other methods:
Guidelines' Grip Strips are clear and easily slide
over the fabric, so you can make little adjustments
But when you are ready to make
the cut, you get more grip with less effort because it all gets concentrated into the
narrow strips right on the edges of the ruler.
You know how much more it hurts to be stepped on by
someone in high-heels than flat tennis shoes.
On all other rulers, the pressure you put just goes straight down under your hand. Putting a vinyl sheet under an acrylic ruler helps, but it really only increases the gripping force right where your hand is.
That's why when you run the cutter past your hand, they still tend to slip which is why we do the finger walk.
No nicking the edge of the Guidelines Ruler's edge with a rotary cutter's blade or No Chipping its corners guaranteed. Made of Polycarbonate, the Guidelines Ruler
is 25 times stronger than acrylic rulers.
