Are you looking for a good deal when you order custom Pipe Tally Books? Here is some simple advice from a person who has been selling tally books to oil and gas drilling companies for 25 years.
- High quality is better than cheap price. Get pipe tally books that have a sewn pad, instead of glued-in pages. You want this to be a permanent record of field data. You don’t want the pages to fall out, and get mixed up. Stone pads (instead of paper pads) are now available. They are waterproof, and won’t tear.
Pick the best type of imprint. A full-color imprint protected by a layer of clear vinyl will hold up the best in all kinds of weather.
- Find a company that has above average service. A company with a well-designed website that is easy to use, and makes ordering fun, is a company that will deliver what you want. Fly-by-night companies will have a cheap looking website.
- Quantity. Buy a quantity of custom tally books sufficient to last you a while. The shelf life of a tally book is very long. You will get a better price if you order a larger quantity.
