I posted a couple of weeks ago about how I was saying ADIOS to my old DVDs and “Well, hello there!” to a new medium of delivering images to my lovely clients. I am SO happy to finally be able to blog these beauts! My good friend Rebekah posted images of her new flash drives a few months ago and I remember loving the idea of switching myself, but I still had half a case of custom DVDs left to burn and I didn’t feel right making the switch until I finished that stack of disks. After chatting with Rebekah about her experience, I decided to go with Flash Bay for my new drives. They’re amazing! They communicated quickly and efficiently and from the time I placed my order to the time I received it, a mere five days had passed. CRAZY fast!
The drives I chose are a simple twist design, but I was able to completely customize them by a) having the rubber body of the drive Pantone-matched to the blue on my website, and 2) having my logo engraved on the metal portion of the front and back of each drive. Flash Bay also offers presentation tins that perfectly fit whichever drive style you purchase, so I went ahead and had those engraved to match my brand, too.
It was really important to me to present the drives in something my brides and grooms will KEEP. I could have gone a cheaper route and done a kraft paper-covered box instead, but that box would most likely be thrown away, making it even more likely the flash drive would be lost. These presentation tins are keepers and because they’re the perfect, snug little fit for the drives, there’s a higher chance the drive will stay in the tin and not get lost. I think.
I finish off each tin with white, linen-textured wrapping paper, a blue ribbon and a gray tag. The larger, print boxes you see below get the same treatment, just with gray ribbon and a blue tag.
Aren’t they so pretty??
I include a hand-stamped, hand-embossed card + envelope in every package I send out. I can do a tutorial on these if y’all want- it’s actually really easy!
