Have you read our advice on building out a design student toolbox starter pack yet? The tape measure is of course an essential item on that list, and now you can buy a high-quality one at a crazy cheap price.
Starrett is a measurement tools company known for their precision. So is Starrett retailer Woodpeckers. Both companies are also known for their high prices, so we were very surprised to see that Woodpeckers is currently having a sale on Starrett’s Exact 1″ x 25′ tape measure, which normally goes for $15 to $20 online, for a piddling $6.99!
I could go on and on about tape measures, and in an upcoming post I will; but for now, if you’re an ID student tired of borrowing the school shop’s beat-up tape measure and you want your own, this one here is a pretty darned good deal.
