Should I use a plastic or metal ruler in paste-up?

Metal or Plastic?

Metal rulers are an absolute necessity in paste-up. They stay straight, are more accurate, and don't get hacked up from use with X-acto knives. In most cases, you'll find they have standard measurements (inches) on one side and typesetting measurements (picas and points) on the other. (Plastic is acceptable for light duty measuring and drawing.)
