P22 Line Gauge

One-sided Pica Pole Ruler
The P22 Line Gauge, or Pica Pole, is an essential print shop tool for measuring spacing, leading, and alignment of your form. These are standard press room rulers and are marked in units of measure printers and typographers use—Picas, Points, Agate, and Inches. These rulers are stainless steel and are etched with graduation marks for longevity. They also have the hooked top edge feature common on this type of scale.

We came into a limited supply of standard Line Gauges that were unbranded, so of course we laser etched our logo on them. These are pretty standard and we offer these two varieties:
