Measuring is for everyone from primary school to commercial and everyday uses so they have a  significant user base.  An item used so frequently and by so many that it has withstood the test of time and in one form another has probably been measuring up since pre Anglo Saxon times. Since the early twentieth century yardsticks have grown in popularity as an imprinted promotional product exposing company names and phone numbers on the broad imprint location available on one or both sides of the tool.

The custom yardsticks are most often made of wood, plastic or metal (metal yardsticks often have a friction enhancer bonded to the back such as cork for added stability.  Plastics have an advantage of being moldable with length markings instead of being otherwise marked.  Metal is popular for the more durable workshop environment.  In the US and many  other countries the promotional yardsticks are marked in inches (36” to the yard). however, in Canada and France along with several other countries markings are in the metric system (one metro with 100 centimeters and 100 millimeters are common) and are often referred to as meter sticks or meter rulers. Often custom yardsticks show both the metric and inch markings making it a handy conversion table.

Custom Yardsticks

Take  our custom yardsticks and the story I have heard about someone who is a life-long craftsman but had never intended to become a yardstick collector though he had always had a soft spot for beautiful tools. When visiting tool museums, he was particularly impressed with the marriage of function and art.  He once visited a museum in France that blew him away with its many rooms filled with antique tools from rustic to luxury  and extremely unique items.   Who would think a simple yardstick would have such an impact but from there it just took off.  He took breaks in his extensive travels to visit antique malls and pick up custom yardsticks, would you believe the collection is now over 2,000 but that’s no record.  He  met someone who has over 5,000 yardsticks in his collection and they were all categorized and recorded describing the imprint on each and where they were purchased, now that is dedication and organization.  They are now a museum collection where the imprints live on billboarding the imprint for eternity.
