Here at Capture Create Studios, as wedding photographers, we are constantly looking for ways to grow and improve our brand. Whether it’s print products, camera equipment, or software we are always looking for something that will help us keep moving forward in a positive direction. One aspect we are always trying to nail down is our photo delivery method. With wedding photography you don't want to put the photos on any old drive. We’ve gone through many different products and looks, but nothing has really stuck or felt like us. But we recently came across a company called USB Memory Direct, which is an online based custom flash drive company. We’ve tried a couple of companies like this before, but in the end we’ve never been that satisfied. Between the quality of the product, the customer service or the ordering process, there’s always been something that has turned us away to look for something better. But that has not been the case with USB Memory Direct. Here’s why:
The Design Process:
With other companies we always had this back and forth process that was such a hassle. We’d upload a logo with the specifications the website gave, then we’d get back an error saying that something wasn’t right and blah blah blah. After multiple emails back and forth over several days with their customer service department, we’d finally have it resolved, but geez what a hassle! But with USB Memory Direct I was in contact with a coordinator who helped me decide what look I was going for, then I sent her a couple of logo options and within the same day I had multiple design options that were put together by their art team. I couldn’t believe how fast and easy the whole process was!
One of the things that really stood out to us about USB Memory direct were the amount of custom options for drives. Not only do they have the classic USB drives made in different materials and colors, but they have drives that I never even knew existed. From bracelets, to pens, to credit card shaped drives, the options are seemingly endless. And if that isn’t enough, you can literally upload any design you want and they will 3D print a drive into any shape you can think of!
We decided to go with a dark Walnut wood USB drive. It’s clean, classic and our white logo pops on it! We feel it matches our brand perfect considering our style is clean, classic with that pop of color we’re always looking for. One detail about this drive that I didn’t know it would have until we received it was that there are magnets that hold the top on tight. This is something I haven’t seen before and I thought it was a great addition, especially on the wood drive because they tend to lose their grip over time and become hard to stay on. The quality is amazing; they feel as good as they look. With most of their drives you have the option of USB 2.0 or 3.0 so you can be assured you can get the transfer speeds you want. And speaking of speed, we couldn’t believe how fast we received our drives! Once our design was confirmed, the order was placed immediately and the next day they were shipped. We had them in 2 days after that, which was so great because we were so excited to start sending these out to our clients! Our clients love them, and it adds such a personal touch to have something different than what other studios offer. There are lots of Sacramento wedding photographers out there, so we like any way in which we can differentiate ourselves.
All in all, we couldn’t be happier with everything from start to finish with USB Memory Direct. The customer service was amazing, the products are beautiful and the whole process was quick and efficient. If you are looking for an easy way to elevate your brand then look no further than USB Memory Direct!
