Custom USB Memory Sticks – Our Customers Love Them!

Custom USB memory sticks are surging in popularity at the moment. There was a time when a printed USB stick was good enough but today custom (fully bespoke versions) are snapping at their heels in terms of popularity and numbers sold.

Every year tens of millions of promotional flash drives are given away by companies looking to promote their brand, to advertise their products or to disseminate large amounts information. With prices falling and memory capacities increasing the market shows no signs of slowing but there is a marked shift in buying patterns towards the fully customised models.

Of course when people talk about “custom USB memory sticks” they often mean standard “factory” designs that are printed, engraved or embossed but in our terminology a custom version is designed and manufactured to a customer’s specification. It’s a unique one-off product and the customer will own the finished design.

We typically make our custom sticks in a shape of a particular product or something that reflects the broad thrust of a client’s business. Products tend to be more popular which is why you’ll see lots of trucks, ships, tools and medical instruments! Anything is possible.

Custom USB flash drives can create a real buzz and generate lots of internet chatter and discussion on social networking sites so they are a great way get “viral” discussions going.

Don’t be put off by the costs! There is a real misconception that they are going to cost a fortune and there will be large upfront set-up fees and tooling costs. Relax – there aren’t. Providing you are ordering at least 100 pcs there should be no set-up or tooling cost and the unit cost for the custom sticks will only be marginally more than a stand (printed) stick!

The only downside is the lead-time which can be anything up to 6 weeks albeit 3-4 weeks is more typical. The lead time is longer simply to allow for the design and approval process so if you do want to use a custom USB stick then you need to plan ahead.

Don’t worry if you don’t have artwork or a specific design in mind. We have our own team of in-house designers who enjoy a challenge and they’ll happily work with you on developing ideas and concepts for you to consider. Hopefully the images shown here and on our Pinterest pages will help to inspire you.
