The "Giant Ruler" is a Rimu wooden height chart it is a handmade, personalised wooden growth chart, designed as a giant modern wooden ruler by Little Miss Viking.
Heartwood is usually a rich red-brown colour with hints of golden yellow. Sapwood has a lighter brown tone and is generally even in colour. The intermediate colour zone is a varied light brown colour giving rise to interesting shadings of colour and grain. The most popular option is Sapwood.
Our wooden height charts are family heirlooms in the making. They make original personalised unisex gifts for Christmas, new arrivals, christenings, first birthdays, best of all they can move house when you do - no more lost history!
By personalising them with a family name (rather than the child's), they can still be enjoyed if further new additions arrive later on. Being a stylish home accessory as well as being practical, the "Giant Ruler" height chart does not have to be hidden away in a child's bedroom or nursery and instead can be a centrepiece to the home in a hallway or kitchen.
A great family keepsake, this Rimu height chart is the perfect way to keep track of your growing family. Because the Rimu boards are sourced on demand total height, colourings and pattern can differ slightly. Each piece is unique and variation should be expected.
The vinyl height charts come with a clear protective coating applied over top.
QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
Can the numbers be oriented horizontal as well like in the picture for the white oak?
Yes the numbers can go horizontally but you will not be able to fit a personalisation on this design (Unless you select the wide rimu option.) Just add notes to the order if you would like the numbers horizontal on a personalised wide Rimu height chart.
Personalised = Vertical Numbers
Non Personalised = Horizontal Numbers.
Just wondering also how long the text can be.
The text can cope with upto 42 characters although the text will be made smaller to fit. We can also locate it at the top or bottom instead of centrally. Just add your request to the order notes.
What is the total height?
The total height is from 20cm to 200cm (180cm) we can do custom measurements as well. Please contact us to organise. The height chart is designed to sit 20cm off the ground so it will clear skirting boards.
I'm wanting to order a wide rimu height chart but would like it to begin at 40cm so it will accommodate tall kids (we are both over 180cm).
If it starts at 40cm it will go to 220cm.
If you are wanting this you just need to add notes to the order.
What is the difference in the two listed size options?The width size box is for the width of the ruler
What would you recommend to use to note dates and names at various points in life? A pencil or pen or something else.
We recommend a non inky marker. (Super Fine Point Sharpie or similar.) A pencil is a good first marker to make sure it is in the right place then go over it in pen.
Can you please send some images/examples of possible fonts that you can do for the height chart personalization?
We have hundreds of styles of font we can use. Please get in contact with us and let us know if you would like a particular type of font ie. Serif Type Styles Old Style Transitional Neoclassical & Didone Slab Clarendon Glyphic Sans Serif Type Styles Grotesque Square Humanistic Geometric Script Type Styles Formal Casual Calligraphic Blackletter & Lombardic Decorative Grunge Psychedelic Graffiti
Hi there Is it possible to get a wide chart with numbers horizontal & personalization in a more script-type font?
Yes we can do the numbers horizontal and a script font, this works only with the wider height charts. Just add a note to the order and we can do this.
Are there other font options?
Yes we do other fonts by request. Please contact us.
