Olfa Frosted Advantage Acrylic Rulers Review


Reviewed by Dana Byerwalter, Editor,

A good set of rulers is essential for effective, precise fabric cutting. Get the upper hand with your quilting and use Frosted Advantage Acrylic Rulers from Olfa. The clever design for these rulers promotes accuracy and prevents cutting frustrations. Use these handy rulers for all of your projects moving forward!

The clearest advantage to these acrylic rulers is the frosted coating. That might sound like a contradiction, but let me explain. Coating the bottom of the rulers is a frosted layer that enables you to easily see the gridlines, even if you're cutting black fabric. Since precise measurements are essential in quilting, losing sight of those gridlines quickly becomes one of the most frustrating experiences, especially if it results in wonky cuts! Don't allow this to happen: use Frosted Advantage Rulers.

Another benefit to using these rulers is the slightly rough surface of the frosted coating. With just a touch more texture than ordinary, clear acrylic, the frosted rulers slide when you need them to but resist slipping. Firm pressure on the rulers locks them in place better than the clear acrylic, allowing you to make your precise cuts. It's just the right amount of texture for moving the ruler when you need to and keeping it in place when you're ready to mark or cut your fabric.

A third advantage to these rulers is that the frosted coating protects the gridlines. Your lines and numbers won't wear off like they would on a normal, acrylic ruler. The lines are printed underneath the ruler, and the frosted layer coats them on the very bottom. Long-lasting, these rulers will be used for years to come!

Finally, the matte surface means the rulers won't reflect light like other, shinier options. You won't have to find strategic ways to cast shadows so you can see what you're doing: the frosted coating prevents any lighting frustrations. In fact, these rulers prevent so many frustrations that they are simply the way to go! For easier and more efficient quilting, be sure to check out Olfa Frosted Advantage Acrylic Rulers.
