Traceless Ruler / ruler

Traceless Ruler

When we write with a common ruler, the ink will stain the paper if we move the ruler carelessly over our writing. Traceless Ruler is designed to solve this problem with special a structure.

Traceless Ruler has an arched structure and a slot in the middle with scale. Due to the arch, a gap is left between the ruler and paper while writing, so the ink won’t leave any unexpected trace on the paper even you move the ruler carelessly.
