Oh, did you find this blog post after searching for promotional Maglights? Or did you mean to type Maglites? Don’t worry, you’re not at school, so we won’t grade you on your spelling.
(The correct spelling is actually Maglites.)
However you want to spell it, promotional Maglights or Maglites are functional gifts for your customers. They’ll use them frequently, and see your company’s name just as frequently. Men and women alike will breathe a sigh of relief if they’re talking on the phone, but realize they can’t use their phone’s flashlight at the same time.
When you think of a logger or forester, what is the first tool that comes to mind? Probably a chainsaw, right? Well the other tool that they use on a daily basis is a diameter tape measure. What exactly do they use this specialized tape measure for?
To wrap about tree branches, logs, and trunks to determine their diameter without cutting them
To help estimate the age of the tree
To determine the value of the tree if it’s being logged
For landscapers, it also helps calculate the amount of fertilizer needed
To be consistent, all loggers measure standing trees with their diameter tape measures at Diameter Breast Height (DBH), which is 4.5’ above ground.
Gas and oilfield workers are the most prominent users of pipe tally books. They need to write in them every time they add another pipe to the drilling rig. These hard working people keep track of pressure readings and inventory in their critical jobs 24 hours a day. How do you choose which tally books you buy for them?
The books should be:
Durable (vinyl is great for this purpose)
Small enough to fit in a pocket
Colorful enough so they won’t get lost in a pile of stuff
The right color to show off your corporate logo on the front vinyl cover
Able to hold a removable water-resistant “stone” paper pad, which is “un-rippable”
Designed with an integral pen loop
When you equip your men with the right products, they can focus on their work.
