Every year, on the third Friday in September, tradesmen all over the country get their day in the spotlight. Today is National Tradesmen Day, and we need to show our immense appreciation for these men and women who keep our country’s roads and power grids (and more!) strong. The perfect gift to give them are Tally Books– not only it is a thoughtful gift, but also so practical!
Today, of all days, you should be flying the American flag at your home. Today is National Flag Day- a day specifically set aside for Americans to show honor and respect to our nation’s flag. Did you know . . . – The American flag was adopted on this day in 1777 – Betsy Ross is credited for stitching together the first flag – There are even Tally Books to celebrate Flag Day!
Easter has come and gone, and we are well into the beautiful spring season. Do you know the famous saying “April showers bring May flowers”? Well, little did you know, that April showers also bring . . . Tally Books! These small but mighty notebooks come in a variety of shapes, colors, and bindings. Happy Spring!
Welcome to March! It’s hard to believe that we’re already into the 3rd month of 2023. With March comes the end of winter, the beginning of spring, and St. Patrick’s Day. Do you know what else will make this the best month ever? Tally Books imprinted with your company logo. They come in a variety of sizes, binding options, and covers:
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.
Nobody buys Tally Books that already have a picture of an oil well. Why?
Everyone wants to give away tally books that have their own company logo.
Sometimes business owners want to put a picture of their own equipment on them.
Sometimes company owners want to have their own conversion charts printed on the back vinyl cover, or on the inside of the cover.
With today’s high tech printing methods, a full-color picture can be printed directly on the vinyl cover. There is no longer a need to print it on a piece of paper, and cover it with an extra layer of clear vinyl to protect the picture.
Multiple logos and pictures can be printed on the front and back cover.
If you want to impress your customers, and give them a useful gift with your corporate logo, give them Tally Books. These water resistant note-keepers are used every day, sometimes every hour, by workers in these fields:
Oil well drilling, offshore and on land
Windmill inspection and maintenance
Oil well inspection
Gas well drilling and inspection
Pipeline inspection and maintenance
Railroad inspection and maintenance
Field biology, zoology, and botany
Electrical power line installation, inspection, and maintenance
As a bonus idea, you can have your customer’s logo on the front, and your logo and contact information on the back.
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.
