How long is manufacture time?

How are the numbering and wording put on my ruler height chart?
All of Grandad Pat's Height charts are made right here in Australia and are all laser engraved. This type of engraving allows for excellent accuracy and definition, this is why we love custom height chart orders because with our machines we can engrave a lot of different shapes and symbols on to your height chart.
What do I write on my height chart with?
Height charts are finished with an internal stain and varnish and can be written on with a permanent marker. We did have one situation where a Miss 4 decided to help mum and measured her sister Miss 2 on the height chart and drew on the chart with a ball point pen - that works too, Mummy was not happy.

Height charts are wooden and we recommend each is hung inside out of areas of extreme heat and sunlight to increase their longevity.
Our wooden ruler height charts are finished with an internal stain and varnish.
Wood is a natural fibre, all pieces of wood are different as are all different wood grains, causing the stains to take differently to each piece of wood. This can effect the look of the stain on each different chart.
