If you are someone who is ready to celebrate National Camping Month, then June is your month!
Let’s be clear though; I don’t know the first thing about what you need to take on a camping trip! I’m not a fan of camping (no matter how many times my husband tries to convince me otherwise). I prefer to have running water, electricity, and a real bed.
Here are some must-haves (including a trustworthy Maglite Flashlight) that even a never-camper like me would suggest taking on your adventure:
Oilfield workers need a handy way of keeping track of how many lengths of pipe
they have put in the ground. The easiest way to do this is to record each pipe in a small pocket-sized notebook. The exact time of day should also be recorded. The book needs to be rugged and water resistant and the pages need to be lined. This problem has led to the invention of vinyl-covered Pipe Tally Books.
An architect scale ruler is used by architects, designers, planners, and draftsmen. If you are going to order some with your company logo, which ruler should you choose?
6 inches long, or 12 inches long? Will the person using it, be carrying it in their shirt pocket, or in their brief case, or on their desk?
Scales. A good architect scale ruler has at least 8 scales. Examples are (1/8, ¼), (½, 1), (3/8, 3/4), (3, 1½). These are listed in pairs, because they share the same edge, but are marked in opposite directions.
Color. It is good to choose a color that goes with your corporate colors.
Imprint color. The logo imprint color is usually the same color as the markings. So, you should choose a markings color that has a high contrast from the color of the ruler.
A good ruler is imprinted using a photo anodized method. This assures smooth edges, so you can use a pen or pencil to draw tick-free lines.
Aluminum is the best material, since it doesn’t warp.
If your architect ruler has all these characteristics, you have a good one.
No matter how much time has passed, you’ll always remember the name of your favorite teacher. This week is #TeacherAppreciationWeek, a week where all teachers near and far deserve to be recognized for all of their hard work throughout the year (no matter if it’s in-person or distance-learning!).
One gift they would carry around wherever they go is a custom-printed travel tumbler. Take your pick from any of these, you can’t go wrong!
Yeah, yeah, yeah… we’ve all been grumbling about wanting to get back to a normal life. But even though today is National Picnic Day, we can still have fun. Even the smallest of outdoor spaces-or just your living room- can accommodate a cozy little picnic. Here are the essential items and travel tumblers that you’ll need to have a celebratory picnic:
You need them in your own business to keep continual field records of a job.
You give them to businesses who use them. You want your own logo and phone number on them to make it easy for those customers to contact you.
Tally Books offer a lot of options, so here’s how to order the perfect books for your business:
Find your best full-color art file that has your company logo and contact information. If you don’t have a logo, you can pick out a stock design.
Do you want anything printed on the back of the book?
Do you want anything printed on the inside of the cover?
What color do you want the vinyl cover?
What color do you want the printed information?
How about an integral pen loop? Then you won’t have to look for a pen every time you need to record something.
Do you want a clear 3-pocket insert inside the front cover? These are handy to store tables and contact information, and protect them from the weather.
How about a paper pad? Do you want to go the extra mile and get the new “stone pad”, which is water resistant and tear-proof? It’s amazing!
After you decide on all these options, you are ready to order your completely custom-made pipe tally books. They will be loved by your employees or your customers……Oilfield and gas field workers, oil drillers, water drillers, pipeline inspectors, windmill inspectors.
Most people don’t leave home without their keys and cell phone. But even more so, people can’t leave home without their flash drives. What a little miracle they are- holding endless amounts of information on such a little device. Whether you’re working from home and need to transport your important files to your meeting tomorrow, or if you want to share your family photos with your parents down the street, or if you simply want to backup your computer, flash drives easily save the day for lots of people.
Let’s celebrate this great invention, it’s #FlashDriveDay!
At long last, winter is over, and today is the first day of spring!
Foresters, linemen, cable guys, contractors, pipeline installers, well drillers, surveyors, and engineers everywhere will finally be able to enjoy the nice weather while using their tally books. But, just in case the weather turns rainy, don’t worry- they all have vinyl covers to protect the pages.
How many days a week do you get takeout for lunch?
How often do you pack your lunch?
Getting takeout is definitely the easier option- no meal prep or planning required, no dishes to do later, and more choices. But it is more expensive, and can definitely tempt you to eat foods that you should probably avoid.
Today is #PackYourLunchDay, a day where you can take the first step towards packing your lunch on a more regular basis, and becoming more mindful about what you eat. Once you start prepping your own meals, it is so easy to eat healthier.
Some easy things to pack beyond the boring ol’ sandwich:
Endless types of salads- pack them full of protein!
Rice/grain bowls- add protein and veggies
Soups & stews
Here are the necessary travel tumblers and Thermos items to help pack your yummy lunch:
For Your Food- keeps it hot for up to 9 hrs or cold up to 14 hrs & comes with a built-in spoon!
For Your Water-
For your post-lunch caffeine break- keeps drinks hot for 7 hours-
