  • Benchmade Bali-USB Drive

    About a year ago, Benchmade Knife Company came to us¬†with a request to make them “the first 50 state legal bali-song” butterfly knife. We did just that.

    Here is a question I hear at least once a day:

    Hi, my name is (insert name here) and I am looking for a price quote. We currently use CD’s to distribute our content (digital catalog, music, software) and want to switch to USB drives. We don’t have a specific budget in mind, but we pay about $1-2 for CD’s.

    Someone asked me last week what made us (CustomUSB) start offering 24-hour turn around. The answer is DEMAND.
