    Hi Tim,
    I make bracelets and would like to put the link of this web page on my site for people who need to measure their wrist. Would that be okay? Or can I purchase the one of these ruler graphics to place directly on my site? Thank you.

      Hi Cheryl,

      Yes, feel free to link back to the site. I’m not currently selling my ruler graphics, so the link is the best option.

      Thanks,

      Tim
