We now have the GIANT RULER vinyl! YAY! Apply to a 6" or 8" wide board. The board should be about 6 feet tall because you place it above the ground, so your board actually takes measurements taller than 6". You can cut off the ends under 1 foot if you desire. It's flexible for what you need. Just cut off parts of the decal you don't want to use (before applying). No matter how much you cut off below the 1 foot mark, be sure to measure 1 foot off the ground, and line up the 1 foot mark on the board and place on wall in this spot so your measurements will be accurate.
