- Pick a USB Drive Form Factor – Shape & Size
- Determine USB Drive Capacity
Printed USB Drives are available in just about any size you might need. Common sizes are between 128mb all the way up to 256GB. Pricing will depend on the capacity as well as the quantity.
- Determine Flash Drive Required Speed
Some projects such as boot-able USB drives or those running directly from the drive itself will require higher data transfer speeds. We recommend at least USB 3 drives for any application that utilizes: boot-able files, executable files, high definition video playback directly from the drive (smart tvs/endcap displays/etc)
Custom printed USB drives are not only a great opportunity to showcase your brand and build brand equity but they are a great way to deliver catalogs, sales brochures or update software anywhere where connectivity may be challenging. We can data load abroad or for more sensitive content we can sterilize and load domestically right here in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Our USB duplication service utilizes offline programming towers which are never connected to the internet and dump RAM between each data load.
- Payment Terms for Flash Drive Purchases
Since Custom USB Drives are no longer reusable once printed most vendors require upfront payment. This is important to keep in mind when sourcing your drives either domestically or abroad.
We ship directly to our customers utilizing FedEx Ground Shipping typically however since we do stock and print domestically often times we can expedite custom USB drive orders up to and including same day service (additional charges apply)
- Turnaround Time
It’s important to keep in mind that many vendors work directly with partners abroad and turnarounds may take up to 21 business days for some custom shaped drives. Plan ahead and give yourself plenty of time if you have important trade shows with firm deadlines. We can always provide Custom USB Drives on Manhattan style drives in a pinch if needs be.
These are some but not all of the things to consider when planning for your next custom printed flash drive or duplication project. Give us a call at 612-782-8200 or contact us and we would be happy to walk you through the in's and outs of getting the very best custom printed USB drives.
