If you don't have a (correct) scale rule, you can print this page, fold the paper and use as a ruler. Print this page (at 100% printer scale) and check the 1:1 scale against a standard rule or tape.
If it's not exact, mouse over 'Fine Tune' arrows to increase or decrease scale and re-print.
Set printer scale to 100%, margins to 0 and page orientation to Landscape.

If your plan's been re-printed or copied to different scale, use the Scale Finder to find new scale.

To test the accuracy of printed scale, print this page (with printer set to 100% scale) and compare the lower 1:1 scale rule against a standard ruler or tape.

If it doesn’t exactly match, mouse over the 'Fine Tune' arrows above to adjust the scale until printed scale matches.

Un-check 'Top Border' to remove ruler top line. Once the paper is folded, this can make it easier to align and read from the scaled plan.

Un-check 'Color' to print in black and white.

Check 'Total Inches' to increment every inch, displaying the total inches instead of inches (1-12) in each foot.
Select standard scales from the dropdown, or enter custom scale directly.

Mouse over 'Scale' arrows to increase or decrease the scale and animate the ruler.

Strangely enough, because the paper scale rules are much thinner than conventional scale rules, it can be easier to take measurements from plans. Conventional scale rule edges are thicker than paper, so the calibrations sit above the plan surface. The paper scale rules sit flat, directly over measurements being scaled.
