Centimeter/Inch rulers: 25 cm long, 3 cm wide. 6 per page.

Decimal-Inch/Centimeter rulers: 25 cm long, 3 cm wide. 6 per page. Ten ticks per inch.

Dense stack of centimeter rules: (lots more per page , but shorter and narrower) 20 cm long, 1.2 cm wide. 21 per page.

The idea: A physical print-cut-fold-and-tape How Big Are Things? reference cube provides a nicely tangible and compact
presentation of size. Each face shows a different scale. It covers atoms through Jupiter. The 10 cm paper cube can sit on
one's desk, providing an attractive and handy reference.

Printing at high resolution (perhaps >= 500 dpi) is necessary, or the millimeter grid will be crufty.
Works best on card stock (200 g/m2, 110 lb), but good paper (eg, 90 g/m2, 24 lb) works ok too.

Large-print meterstick (with 1/4 meter labels): 100 cm long, ~5 cm wide. One per page. Says "0", "1/4", "1/2", "3/4", and "1". But the 10 cm numbers are smaller.

Large-print meterstick: 100 cm long, ~5 cm wide. One per page. There are big numbers every 10 cm.

Meterstick (cm and inches): A meter is a bit longer than a yard (39+ in).

Metric rulers (narrow): 25 cm long, 2 cm wide. 9 per page.
