It is time to honour our Australian rulers

My partner, Claire Pickard, was inspired to imagine a giant ruler with metric graduations for Australian children. She realised that imported items with imperial measurements made no sense for school age kids. Made from 100% Australian plantation timber, we both believe and hope that they will be treasured, appreciated and valued into the future,

Below is a roll call of the people who have received our rulers so far. We thank them all.

Get your Australian metric wooden growth chart rulers here!

Ella is “pure heroine”. I got a surprise when she contacted me several weeks ago. She had searched online for a metric version of a large ruler to give as a gift for her nephew.

Now the fact that she lived in Perth, Western Australia, shouldn’t have been a problem, but most of the freight companies declined because of the dimensions and those that didn’t, wanted a fee that was more than the actual item.

So I searched and found a service that was reasonably priced. Well let’s just say, eventually it got there. But only after numerous phone calls and Ella herself driving to pick it up.

The good news is that I’ve been informed about a company that has a proven record moving large items for reasonable cost across Australia. See website for further details.
