    Flash drives can be personalized to include the logo of the company. They could be given away as a gift when customers buy another main item marketed by the company.

    There are various types of designs available as far as personalized flash drives are concerned. You would want to choose a design that’s catchy. In short, the flash drive must stand out compared to the standard flash drive sold in a computer shop.

    You would also want to choose a design that would suit the target customer you would want to give the personalized flash drive to. For instance, if you’ll be giving away souvenirs to corporate clients, you would want to choose a drive that’s not flashy with loud colors. You would want to choose a subdued color and one where your company logo could be displayed prominently. It would be another story, however, if the personalized flash drive is a gift for the subscription of a teenage magazine.

    Flash memory personalized drives start from a capacity of 64MB right up to 16GB. As you would have guessed, the higher the capacity, the more cash you would have to fork out for it. But then if you offer a low capacity like 64MB, chances are very few people would find a use for it. The idea would be to have the person carry it around as his or her primary flash drive to back up his important files.

    You can go for a low capacity though if you want to use it for presentation purposes and leave the flash drive with your client at the end of the day.

    Prices depend on the quantity you order. The higher your quantity, the lower per unit cost. The minimum quantity would depend on the supplier. Some would take a minimum quantity of 36 while others won’t give you a deal if you ask for anything below 50. Expect prices to start from $12 for a 2GB drive. Surf the internet for fair deals. A good place to start would be
