Carriage House must have been an Engineer in an earlier life.
Just trying to make up time from a misspent, though entertaining, youth.
So Carriage House,
What did you do? Laminate the whole sheet, then cut it out?? I like how it looks. Sturdy.
I cut apart each sheet, making sure to cut off one side of the scale and leaving enough on one end to punch a hole in and then laid them (2 sets) out on a single 8.5x11" lamination sheet (around 2.00 at Kinko's). I took care to run it through the laminator half a dozen times to make sure it sealed well around the edges and then cut each one out using the stores razor cutter (whatever its called...the trundle on the bar that slides back and forth that is not a traditional paper cutter).
