This growth chart (or giant measuring stick) is cut, engraved, and hand painted/stained. It's great for measuring the height of small kids, or big kids, or even adults. It starts at 6" and goes all they way up to 6'6" for those taller adults. The tick marks and numbers are all engraved into the wood, so you won't have to worry about this wearing out with time. We then go back and hand paint the numbers that are engraved. Approximate dimensions are 3/4" thick x 7" wide x 6' tall. The measuring stick comes with a keyhole on the back to mount it on the wall with a single nail or screw. Or if you want to attach it directly to the wall simply screw right through the board and into the wall. Made in the USA.
