Tally Books are used by workers and inspectors in the oil and gas industries. These books are made rugged for outdoor use. Here is how they are constructed:
For stiffness, we start with chipboard. This is the solid gray “cardboard” material that cereal boxes are made out of.
The 2 pieces of chipboard (front and back of the tally book) are covered with a colored vinyl for protection from the elements. Vinyl comes in a variety of colors. The inside layer is usually the same color as the outside layer.
To hold the paper pad (or stone pad), we add a front and back clear pocket. So the first and last page of the pad are slid into those two pockets. For durability, the first and last page are made of heavier paper. This pad is held in place just like the check register in your vinyl checkbook.
Not in this order, the imprinting is done on the outside cover and the inside pockets.
Printing is done in 3 different ways: Screen printing, Hotstamping, Full-color imprinting.
Sometimes we add a clear vinyl pen loop on the side. We can also add an insert. It has 3 clear vinyl pockets so that you can add papers and cards of your choosing.
Are needed by your employees if they need to make notes continually in the field. They are essential to the oil and gas industries. Oilfield and gas field workers and inspectors need to have durable pipe tally books to keep their records current and safe.
Give your employees a sense of pride. Seeing your company logo on the books tells them that they are team members.
Oil companies are always busy. The drillers need to keep track of the amount of pipe they are putting down the hole. The well operators need to keep track of yield, and what the gauges say. The supervisors need to keep track of employees, and their work hours.
These 2 Tally Books are vital to the oil industry. They are weather-proof, and can fit into your shirt pocket or pants pocket.
The flexible book 3308 is great for a back pocket. It bends when you do.
Tally Books are similar to jotters, or pocket notebooks. All are useful for writing notes and small enough to keep in your shirt pocket or jacket pocket. What is different about “tally books”?
They are protected by a heavy duty vinyl cover, to help keep the pages dry when
you are working outside.
They have an optional “stone pad”. That is not paper, but it looks like paper. Stone pads are water resistant and you cannot tear them. If more people knew about them, they would prefer them over paper pads.
They have an optional clear vinyl 3 page insert. You can insert your own tables and data sheets for easy reference in the field.
For oil and gas industry users, the tally books have optional oilfield stock art which complements your company logo.
All-in-all, tally books are very rugged pocket notebooks for use in all kinds of weather. They are preferred by oil, gas, and wind energy companies. They use them for keeping track of repetitive data entries.
Pipe Tally Books are really designed for outdoor use. They are mainly used by oil and gas field workers. They keep track of continual data such as the number of pipes inserted into an oil well drilling rig. They have a weather proof vinyl covering. They are small enough to fit into your pocket, and be available constantly. Some of the new ones come with “stone pads”. They are waterproof and tear proof. They are a great improvement over paper pads. But pipe tally books can be used for any kind of writing. Here are 5 silly and odd uses. How many more can you come up with?
Composing a music score for a Broadway show.
Doodling while you are sitting on a jury.
Writing love letters to all your girlfriends overseas while at your best friend’s wedding.
Keeping track of your dairy cows medical care.
Writing police reports you read in the newspaper.

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.
Are you in the gas and oil business? Or any business that needs to keep continual records of data in the field. The best and safest way to make regular notations of gauge readings and pipe usage, is with a tally book. Oilfield tally books are small, weather-proof pocket sized notebooks that are protected by vinyl covers.
Do you need to keep records every hour, about an ongoing process?
Do you make frequent notations about a project that involves numbers or measurements?
Do you want your measurements or notations to become permanent?
If you answered YES to any of those questions, then Pipe Tally Books are for you! They provide a neat way to make tabular notes of measurements and digital activity, such as drilling an oil well, or surveying.
Tally Books can be customized with your logo or photograph, and be used to promote your company to your customers.
