Pi Day is March 14. This year you can help celebrate by answering the question at the bottom.
Pi is the constant ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter, no matter what size the circle is. This is useful knowledge when you work with water pipes or oil or gas pipelines, and you need to replace part of it. You can measure the circumference and divide by pi. But there’s an easier way to do that.
Let a Lufkin Diameter tape measure do it for you. You just wrap it around the pipe, and read the diameter. Mathematicians call pi an irrational number, since it goes on for an infinite number of decimal places, but using a diameter tape is a very rational and easy way to find the diameter of a pipe.

If you have customers in these fields, you can hold on to them with Tapes. Give them a pipe diameter measuring tape with your company logo. They will appreciate your generosity and thoughtfulness. And, your logo will live for a long time in their pockets.

The Pipe diameter tape measure is often misunderstood, and often unheard of. That’s because most people don’t need one. But if you understand what it can do, you would probably use one.
It’s too hard to use. False. All you do it wrap it around the pipe and read the diameter right off the tape.
It’s too bulky to carry in my pocket. False. Many are no bigger than 1 1/2 inches square, and 1/4 ” thick.
I can’t find any at the hardware store. False. Try an online store. They are out there.
It’s not accurate. False. The simple pocket Lufkin diameter tape is accurate to the 100th of an inch of diameter.
It’s no better than using a regular tape and dividing by pi. False. Due to the calibration and the location of the zero mark, it is made specifically to measure pipe diameters.
It is not useful for the everyday person. False. You can measure the diameter of a tree, a hose in your car or boat, your furnace pipe, or plumbing in your home. Want to find out the diameter of that water pipe in your basement, so you can replace it? And you don’t want to cut it to measure it? Use a Pipe diameter tape measure.
Do you need to find the diameter of a pipe or pipeline, and you don’t want to have to divide by pi? Of course, you can do it that way–Measure the circumference and divide by pi. But a more accurate way is to use a pipe diameter tape measure.
Other ways: Use a micrometer that is big enough to do the job. Or use a caliper, then transfer the size to a rule, then divide by pi.
Diameter tapes make the job easy, by doing all the work for you on an oil, gas, or water pipe, or anything round, like a tree or telephone pole.
Promotional mugs come in a wide variety of styles, material, and colors today. When I started in the advertising specialty business 22 years ago, the coffee mug selection was rather boring. Mugs were available in…
Then along came promotional mugs in heavy plastic, stainless steel, rubber non-skid bottoms, vacuum insulated, and fancy non-drip closeable lids. Some are available with a combination of material and colors to match your corporate logo. Some companies, like Starline, rate their insulating abilities so you can compare one vacuum bottle with others. The higher the price, the better insulating ability it has. Of course, price is also determined by the size and the type of material.
Promotional mugs, travel mugs, coffee mugs, water bottles, and vacuum mugs all share these common qualities, which make them so popular.
APPRECIATED by your customers, contacts, and employees.
USEFUL. Mugs are so useful, that you might consider them a necessity.
PERPETUAL. Coffee and travel mugs last forever, unless of course you break one. But how hard is it to break stainless steel, ceramic, or heavy plastic?
A PERMANENT GOODWILL GESTURE. Every recipient remembers who gave them the water bottle or vacuum mug. How could they forget, since your logo is permanently imprinted right on it?
Camo is Cool. The number of Camo-Lovers is constantly increasing. Even people who never go to the woods like the look and feel of owning a camo-imprinted item. This Muskoka Fall™ Vacuum Water Bottle, SV98SS, will fit right into your collection of camo personalized pocket knives, camo backpack, hat, and jacket, multi-tools, and Mag-Lites.
That’s what I love about promotional mugs, and I hope you do, too. The never-ending changes in design and materials keeps this area of promotional advertising alive.
