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.
Knowing what tally books are is pretty much on a NTK (need-to-know) basis. If you’re in the oil or gas industries, forestry, contracting, etc. then you definitely know what these trusty little books are for, and how important they are to keeping on-the-job records.
Here are the top 5 features of these small but mighty record-keepers:
Durable vinyl covers
Bindings can be spiral or sewn
Covers come in a variety of colors and stock images
You can imprint your logo on the outside cover and/or inside cover
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.
