Based on the same design as our Ti-Tape micro-sized titanium tape measure, these Vintage Edition tape measures are identical in every way except they are made from your choice of either tellurium copper or brass. Slightly larger than a US Quarter, they are the perfect tape measures for everyday carry. Why? Because they are super TINY, ultra-durable, and have that awesome old-world look. Each version also includes a removable keychain clip, so you can attach it anywhere to keep it with you at all times. As if that wasn't enough, the user-replaceable 3' measuring tape ensures you will never have to buy another portable tape measure again. Ever.

These tape measures were designed to be as small as possible, making them almost invisible on a keychain or tucked away in your pocket. The durable housing material will ensure it will hold up to everyday wear and tear, far superior to those cheap plastic tape measures. And what happens if your measuring tape gets worn or bent? Not a problem! The user-replaceable design allows you to change it out so you can start with a fresh tape that is ready for action!

Think about your average day, and how many times having a tape measure would come in handy. Whether it's trade related (i.e. carpenter, engineer, interior designer) or just being able to measure a piece of furniture at the store to see if it will fit in that special place, it is one of those little tools that can make a big difference.  And that vintage appearance will add a whole new level of style to your gear!

Vintage Edition Features:

  • Manufactured from tellurium copper or brass
  • Ultra compact size
  • Replaceable measuring tape
  • Removable stainless steel keychain attachment clip
  • 3 foot measuring length
  • High contrast black on white markings, both imperial and metric units

Please note: although this material is highly corrosion resistant, copper and brass are considered to have a “living finish”. When exposed to the elements they will have a tendency to oxidize over time. This oxidation, also called patina, can be either beautiful or unappealing depending upon your personal preference. If you prefer the look of patina, simply use your Vintage Edition tape measure as intended and over time it will develop its own unique appearance. However if you do not prefer this type of finish, this can easily be corrected. There are many over the counter polishes or homemade solutions that can be used, but a very good polish that we recommend is Wright's Copper Cream. Simply use a very small amount on a soft cloth and wipe down the surface LIGHTLY using a circular motion. You do not need to apply pressure, it doesn’t take much effort to clean the material. This will remove all traces of oxidation and leave a bright, polished finish.

    Shipping Times

    PLEASE NOTE: Due to the current logistics delays, shipping times may take longer than expected. This is especially true for International shipments, where delivery times can take weeks longer than usual. This is beyond our control, and we ask that you please be patient with expected deliveries until shipping companies get back to a more "normal" schedule.

    We make every effort to process orders within one working day, however there may be slight delays depending upon the number of orders we receive, holiday periods and available staffing resources. Typically we will process all orders within no more than 2 working days.

    Shipping times (from the time the package is dropped off at the carrier) will vary depending upon the carrier, method of shipment and destination. For example USPS Domestic First Class Mail should take between 2-3 days, but we have seen instances of 5-7 days. Domestic Priority Mail should take 1-2 days, but can take anywhere from 1-4 days. Domestic Express Mail should take one day, but that is only if your processed order is delivered to the post office before the cutoff time (typically 12:00 noon). Also keep in mind that weather and travel distance can have an effect on delivery times.

    International shipments have even more variables that must be considered. A package sent by USPS First Class International can take anywhere from 1-3 weeks, sometimes longer depending upon the country. International shipments have the potential of being delayed by Customs, as well as having additional taxes or fees levied on a package. These are out of our control, and we advise that you become familiar with your specific country's shipping regulations to understand the impact to your shipment.
