The equivalent of what?

The decimal equivalents of an inch. You think one-eighth and computers think 0.125. Every designer worth her salt has a decimal equivalent chart. Most of the conversions we know by heart. Every so often, however, we have to check. And since we can layout things in our programs to the thousandth of an inch, we get pretty precise. I would say anal, but this is a G rated blog. I’ve made a decimal chart for you. You can view it below and download the pdf. It is not fancy, no pretty graphics, not even my web site address or a pitch. Print it, trim it and enjoy.
