Nowadays printing technology has progressed so far that you can have your own business wall calendars with your own pictures. Do you have a product line that you want to display all year on your customer’s wall? Do you have a fleet of tow trucks, boats, taxis, or a group of buildings? You can now use today’s digital cameras or smart phones to capture the images for a wall calendar. Here are 5 tips to help you and a printing company make the best calendar you have ever seen. Custom Calendar Printing is finally here.
Furnish hi resolution images. Your beautiful full color pictures will look professional on your wall calendar if they are at least 300 dpi. So for a picture that is 10 inches by 10 inches, you need 3,000 pixels by 3,000 pixels. When you multiply that out, you get 9 million, or 9 megapixels.
Pick the best background for your picture. If you have a fleet of trucks, and want a different truck on each page of your calendar, be wary of the background. Do you want a background with a telephone pole and electric lines, a stop sign, a dog scratching his fleas?
Lighting. The best lighting will give make the colors stand out. Too bright light will make deep shadows. Too dark lighting will look too dark.
Washing and grooming. If you don’t have time to groom and wash, you will be sorry every time you look at your calendar picture.
Balance. A great picture will have the subject in the center, or moving to the center.
Maglites are the best USA-Made flashlight. They are built tough, and will last a lifetime. But, here are 5 secrets you probably didn’t know about Maglite Flashlights.
LED (the bulb on an LED Maglite, or any LED flashlight) doesn’t last forever. It doesn’t burn out. It just gets dimmer and dimmer with age. Don’t worry. Depending on your usage, it should remain very bright till a time between 50 years and 2,000 years from now.
Maglites® are designed to be highly water resistant. However, they are not advertised to be waterproof.
Maglites® are not tested to be explosion-proof or intrinsically safe. Some workers who use a flashlight in highly volatile environments need that type of flashlight.
There are flashlights made for that purpose.
Old and weak alkaline batteries can damage your Maglite® just as they can damage any other flashlight. Maglites® are built tough, but guarding against a leaky battery is above and beyond the call of duty. Many battery manufacturers have a repair/replacement policy if your flashlight is damaged by one of their leaky batteries.
The ANSI standard of rating the power of flashlights was started only in 2009. Mag Instrument has agreed to abide by the ANSI standard, and rates its flashlights so you can compare one with another. ANSI stands for American National Standards Institute. The parameters used are:

If you live in a non-metric country, you never know when you might need a metric tape measure. Since the economy is now a “global” economy, metric size bolts and other parts are appearing all the time. Here is a pocket tape for you. It is the only metric tape measure you will ever need. This is why:

It measures straight objects in inches.

It finds the diameter of round objects like pipes, in inches and hundredths of an inch.
It is small enough to fit in your pocket
It will hold your important car keys and house keys.
It can display your company logo on the front, and other info on the back.
This versatile tape is marketed by Diameter-Tapes.com. It is the most useful and rarest of all OD (diameter) tapes.
If you have to find the length of a pipe, that’s easy. But what about the outside diameter of a pipe? What if you can’t just measure the diameter at the end? What if the pipe doesn’t have its ends exposed. It is part of a piping system, or a pipeline. How can you fine the OD, or outside diameter?
You may find a flashlight with more lumens, but not this powerful. What gives the RL1019 so much power? The fact that it is rechargeable anywhere. You can charge it in any room of your house or garage. You can even charge it in your car or boat or RV. With the wall bracket, it remains ready whenever you are.
Another powerful feature is the availability of 4 function sets. Choose a function set that you like, and your torch will give you 3 different outputs. The General function set has Full Power, Low Power, and Eco. The Outdoor function set has Full Power, Low Power, and Strobe. The Law Enforcement function set has Momentary, Full Power, and Eco. The Tactical function set has Momentary, Full Power, and Strobe. When you buy one, it comes with the default General function set, but you can change it to one of the others if you want to.

As always, since 1979, Maglites have been as American as apple pie. They are still made in the USA.
