Are All Branded USBs Created Equal?

A trade show, a company event, a marketing campaign, or just a cool gift! There are so many reasons why you might seek out a company that creates custom flash drives. Chances are, when you Google “promotional USB”, you’ll have a few options of where to bring your business. The question is, does it matter which company you choose? Are all promotional product manufacturers the same? The answer is a big NO. Promotional product companies can vary greatly in quality, delivery time, creativity, storage capacity of the USBs, and the level of available technology. CustomUSB prides itself on the fact that we exceed expectations in all of these areas. We want to give you a product that has value; a product that is so great, people keep them for years to come. We aim to give you Custom USBs that have wow factor. Our USBs are different, and we are proud to tell you why.

Quality Custom Flash Drives

High-quality USBCustomUSB is full service; we design, manufacture, and distribute our products. That means that we have quality control of every step in the USB creation process. As a result, we don’t just create products that look good; we create products that are of high quality. For us, that means using MUDP chips, non-recycled memory, and durable materials. In case you aren’t up on the latest USB tech, for MUDP chips the functionality is all inside semi-conductor, and there is no SMT (Surface Mount Technology). Aka, you cannot take these chips apart (other types of chips have components that are sewed/stapled together.) As a result, our microchips are shock, dust, and waterproof. Further, many competitors use recycled memory. Recycled memory is recovered from devices/chips that have been out in the market/previously used. This practice is very risky and has a high failure rate of 10-40%. MUDP chips by definition cannot be recycled. Finally, we use high-quality materials like PVC rubber, ABS plastic, metal, and wood. We want our products to last, to work well, and to be something that the purchaser can be proud to own.

Delivery Time

Fast CustomUSB deliveryWe have all been there; you’ve been so wrapped up in planning for your company meeting or tradeshow that you completely forgot to order a promotional product or a giveaway. That’s why our team works with speed in mind. Most of our standard flash drives take five days to produce and ship. Now, what if your event is in only a day or two? Fear not! We also offer rush order services on select USB drives. Out of the country? No problem, we ship worldwide (though you may have to pay more in fees). Our USBs won’t do you any good if you don’t have them in time for your event, which is why we take delivery time seriously, and always work our hardest so that our product is in your hands when you need it.

*Keep in mind that custom designs may require longer lead times. If you have any questions, you can speak to your sales representative.

Storage Capacity

Of course, we can’t talk about USBs without talking about storage. We believe the amount of storage in your USB should be up to your discretion, which is why we offer them in a range from 2GB to 128GB. At CustomUSB we recommend not getting less than 4GB of storage. High capacity USBs, are more reliable because they are downgraded less, or not at all. This reflects the general quality of the memory wafer.
