The demand for gift boxes for printed or engraved USB flash drives is growing apace. Partly the demand has been driven by the general increase in the sale of promotional USB drives and partly it’s being driven by the increased use of printed flash drives by professional and wedding photographers.
Photographers are increasingly using printed USB memory sticks instead of CD’s and DVD’s because they look better, they do a better job at promoting the photographers brand, they provide a new revenue stream and customers seem to prefer them to “old fashioned” CD’s and DVD’s.
Because photographers are not using them as a “give-away” but as a product that can be sold as a real value add it’s important to them that they are presented to their clients in something that looks classy and reflects their brand values. As such the basic poly bags or plain white boxes that most promotional USB sticks are supplied in are inappropriate and it’s why we have started to offer a much wider range of packaging options.
Our current range includes; metal tins (with and without a window), black flip boxes and magnetic clasp boxes (in white or black). All of these can either be printed or engraved and they are all supplied with custom foam inserts that hold the USB sticks nicely in place in the box.
A new option we’ve just added to our box branding choices is “Gold Leaf Embossing” – providing you want a reasonable number of boxes embossed in this way the prices aren’t as scary as you might think. The finished results look fantastic and the gold embossed boxes are pretty much guaranteed to make an impact. Highly recommended if you’re after something a little different and something that will make your USB sticks stand out from the crowd.
If you’re not sure what option might work for you or work best with your brand or logo then just give us a call and we can talk you through the options and arrange for some free mock-ups for you.
