The market for diameter tapes is relatively small. But for the people that use them at work, they are very valuable. There are a few manufacturers worldwide. Of that small group, one manufacturer stands out above the others. Lufkin. Yes, Lufkin makes the most popular pipe diameter tape measure in the world. Everyone who works with pipes and oil and gas pipelines prefers that brand. It is known for consistent quality and engineering.
Why? In a few words, you don’t want to damage your precious eyes misusing one of the worlds brightest flashlights, the Maglite®. Bright light is good as long as you are lighting up objects that you need to see. But be careful not to shine it into anyone’s eyes.
Promotional Maglights (Maglites®) have always been designed and manufactured in the United States. They are popular the world over because of their long-lasting quality, their premium material, and superb workmanship. Maglite® has set the universal standard of what a flashlight should be. Bright, dependable, and rugged. That’s why so many companies and corporations like to have their logo laser engraved on them. That’s why they pass them out to their customers and workforce. They are used as safety awards for both men and women. A Maglite® is a universal quality business gift that is useful, appreciated, and rugged.
What are custom tally books, and what can they do for your business? Here are 3 big secrets to help you promote your company’s business:
Tally books are “field books” that are rugged, weather-resistant, and are ruled to accept your continual entry of data. They can be custom-made with your logo and other information. That information is protected from the weather with the use of a vinyl cover.
Secret number 2 is that your employees can use these books to assure that your vital data is recorded on the spot, in the field, and protected until they can get back to the office and have it entered into your computer system.
Secret number 3 is that you can advertise your company on them and give them to your customers….. Your customers who need tally books in their business. They are used by oil drilling companies, well service businesses, trucking companies, pipe companies, geologists, environmentalists, news media, electric companies, and survey crews.
Promotional advertising items aren’t just for getting your logo out there. They are useful items, too. Take a look at your refrigerator door, the items on your desk, the items in your desk drawer, and logo items in your car and garage. Look at your closet. It isn’t hard to find a company’s logo on items in all these places. Here are 3 promotional advertising items that you just can’t live without:
Calendars. Most people have at least 1 or 2 wall calendars, and a few smaller stick-on calendars or card calendars, or one on the refrigerator. Even with a calendar on our smart phones, we still like to see one when we look around the room.
Clothing. Wearable promotional products are seen everywhere indoors and outdoors. Besides food and shelter, clothing is one of the top 3 necessities of life. You can see sports logos, corporate imprints, and school insignia on jackets, shirts, hats, and pants everywhere you look.
Writing Instruments. What would you do without a pen to write checks, make notes, and record phone numbers. Is there any doubt that we can’t live without pens?
Promotional flashlights not only spread the image of your logo to everyone you give them to. They also are useful tools. They “brighten the lives” of your customers, figuratively and actually. Here are the steps to give your customers a flashlight with your corporate logo…..
Find your best company logo to place on a flashlight.
Find the best promotional flashlights company on the internet. Choose one that has an easy-to-use website. One that is easy to navigate, and to order.
Decide your budget. Remember, most flashlights will last a very long time. So your investment will last many years.
Decide what size of flashlight you want to give. Is it for both males and females. Is it for all ages?
Do you need a simple incandescent bulb, or LED, or the new CREE bulb, or the newer COB (chip onboard) style of torch? How about a Maglite®?
If you can’t answer these questions, just phone the company and discuss your needs.
After you place your order and receive your flashlights, it’s time to do the fun job. Pass them out in person to all the customers on your list. It’s time to “make your customers’ lives a little brighter with promotional flashlights.”
Maglite® has improved on its famous line of USA-made flashlights. The new ML25LT LED 2 and 3 C-cell flashlight was shown at the OPPA show in Cleveland Ohio last week. This show is for promotional product distributors only. So if you want to see a sample of this new torch, just ask your favorite promotional product distributor. The brightness is 177 lumens, 2 hours (2C cells) and 173 lumens, 18 hours (3C cells).
If you want a Maglite engraved with your company logo, that can be done, too. Your logo will look white against the color background of the barrel. The white color is caused by the reaction between the laser engraving and the base metal, aluminum.
Who uses Maglites? Your customers do. Why not put your logo where is counts, and will last forever? Big users are: real estate salesmen, inspectors, plumbers, electricians, construction estimators, carpenters, contractors, HVAC installers, exterminators, basement waterproofers, furnace repair men, chimney inspectors, and homeowners.
Brian Debottis (of Starline) showed me the best and brightest engraved flashlights at the OPPA show in Cleveland Ohio last week. I have one of these Triple Output LED CREE FL142 flashlights, and tried it out one night. It can light up the complete side of a building. It’s bright enough to be able to paint the side of your house at night! Currently, I keep it in my boat. When working in the engine compartment, you need a super bright light, and this flashlight fills the bill.
There are 2 secrets to its brightness. First, is the CREE bulb. CREE bulbs are extremely brighter that an ordinary LED bulb or an incandescent bulb. Second, there are 9 AA batteries inside. If they are all connected in series, that would give it 13.5 volts to work with. No wonder it is rated at 1050 Lumens.
The FL142 can be laser engraved with your corporate logo. This makes for a long-lasting, appreciated gift when you present it to your best customers.
