Memory Sticks - Don’t Just Brand Them, Number Them As Well
You are here: Extras > Serial Numbers

There are times when you distribute branded memory sticks when you want to know who’s been given a particular memory stick. Sometimes its because you want to “bind the memory stick” to a particular customer, member of staff or student or sometimes its simply to help you keep track of where they have gone.

Engraving, printing or embossing a serial number or unique tracking number on every memory sticks that carries your brand is relatively straightforward and it’s a service that we offer at USB2U.

Where the serial number is printed, how its printed, the number of characters available and the impact on lead times does vary from memory stick to memory stick so you’re best to call us to talk through your requirements. Our team will discuss the options with you and then provide you with a detailed quote and mock-up to help you make your decision.

In the past our customers have found printing serial numbers on their branded memory sticks is useful in the following situations:

    USB Sequential Number
  • Universities often ask for flash drives to carry a unique serial number so that they can link the flash drives they distribute to a particular student. This is not to track the usage of the flash drives but simply to allow them to return the flash drive to the student in the event of it being lost.
  • Companies distributing sensitive data on their branded memory sticks have occasionally asked for them to be serial numbered so that they can trace them back to the recipient in the event of loss.
  • Segmenting data. If say you’ve ordered 1,000 printed memory sticks and you want to load different data sets onto each memory stick its useful to get them numbered up so that you can separate them into batches and record which batch (based on a serial number range) carries which set of data!

In addition to printing a unique serial number on each memory stick it’s also possible to include a signature strip, which can be useful because it allows the stick to be personalised quickly and easily by the recipient.

If you’re looking for some branded memory sticks with serial numbers and/or signature strips the give us a call on 0800 008 7079.
