Whether you like it iced, skim, half-caff, or just black, the one thing we can all agree on is that you need a proper insulated beverage bottle in which to drink your favorite coffee.
What better way to reward your employees than with any of these laser-engraved travel tumblers. It could be just the pick-me-up they need to get through the day.

  1. He is coming out with a rechargeable one that will take an 80% charge in only 1/2 hour.
  2. Also Anthony is releasing a new 4D cell flashlight that can last as long as 18 days, without turning it off.

Watch for these two new Maglite Flashlights in the coming weeks, maybe in time for Christmas.


What is the Best Material For an Architect Scale Ruler?

If you had all these materials to choose from, and needed to make an architect scale ruler, which would be the best choice?

  • wood. Too thick. The markings wouldn’t be close enough to the drawing. Also, printing fine delicate lines on wood is impossible. Warping and changing of length due to heat and humidity is a big factor to consider.
  • steel.  It would rust in time. Stainless steel would be a better choice, but a little expensive.
  • plastic. Not durable enough for daily use. Plus, how would you put fine markings on it?
  • aluminum. The best choice, because it won’t rust, lasts forever, and you can print fine lines on it using Photo Anodizing.
  • cardboard. Naw. too flimsy.
  • stone. Probably would be too thick for the job.
  • ceramic. Would be too thick or too brittle.
  • fabric. Too variable in length due to stretching.
