Celebrate your Wedding with a Personalised USB Flash Drive
Around two years ago we were approached by a bridal gown company who wanted some customised USB flash drives in the shape of a bride (tricky) that they could use to give away to potential customers. The idea was for the USB flash drive to be pre-loaded with their catalogue, photos of bridal wear, links to their web site and of course their contact details.
The custom USB brides were a great success and really helped the company who ordered them secure more business in a different and innovative way. In some ways the bridal wear company were ahead of the times because two years ago very few companies were commissioning custom or bespoke flash drive but today they are much more common and we're now seeing all manner of companies ordering them in a wide range of shapes and styles.
When it comes to weddings USB flash drives are now also gaining popularity with the brides and grooms as well. Some are using them as Wedding Favours. Wedding Favours are typically small, but personal gifts that are given away to key members of the service to thank them for their help, support and participation. Favours are a relatively new concept in the UK having first found popularity in the USA. Where USB flash drives are used as favours they are typically printed or engraved with the names of the happy couple and the date of the wedding.
USB flash drives are also being used to store the wedding day photographs on and to distribute them around to the wedding day guests and those that could not attend on the day. Sometimes this is organised by the bride and groom themselves who will order the printed flash drives and then load up their own photos from the day or sometimes it's a service offered by the wedding photographer.
Whilst the photographs could be email or posted on a social networking site the act of sending out the photographs on a personalised flash drive as a "thank you" is a great touch and ensures that everyone who is given one has something tangible and special to remind them of the day.
Although weddings have taken the lead its likely that other key events will be celebrated and remembered in a similar way. Milestone birthdays like 40th's or Golden Wedding Anniversaries are likely candidates for the USB flash drive treatment.
