Default Custom USB Drives

Has anyone ordered Logo'd thumb drives for a business etc?

There are a thousand different companies out there, just looking for real world feedback.

use newegg to review the specified models, otherwise you wind up with shit.

Contigo autoseal travel mugs are where its at. A little laser etching and bam, awesome advertising that's always present with the person in front of other people. A little while ago wal-mart was running cases of 4stainless mugs for $15.99...customers loved them with the laser etched logo.

From what i've seen at recent trade shows, most companies are preloading brochure type material on them in lieu of printing costs.

Being on the recieving end of these drives all the time, they usually wind up in the trash shortly after data transfer to my computer. If they were a high capacity i might just keep one or two, but these 2 gig ones are a dime a dozen, and this year alone I bet I shit canned at least two to three dozen.

I usually just buy the micro center brand. Cheap, and our old IT guy said they were just as good as the brand name.

The plan isn't as much to use them for an advertising Blitz, but we frequently send shows out with operators, and the equipment we use uses USB Key's to backup show files. So instead of buying whatever, we'll include them with our logo on it. be a little reminder as they get toured around the world.

We don't have any brochures or literature to even put on them, they will be a used device.

Let me know what you find out. Amber is looking to hand drives over to customers she shoots for instead of CD's. I'd like to get her name etched on some.
