The USB Flash drive has become the favorite marketing item from 2010 until today. Many companies, entrepreneurs, and artists see the efficiency of putting marketing materials in flash drives and the charm of designing really creative flash drives that reflect the brand.
It has also become so cheap to make that many entrepreneurs find it a great way to promote their brand. If you’re planning to make custom flash drives, don’t just make them forgettable or else you’d just be wasting your money.
Make flash drives that really reflect your company or product. Here are some of the coolest examples of flash drives that wonderfully showcase their brand:
MASCULAN FLASH DRIVE
Masculan is a condom brand and what better way to design a flash drive than making it a condom-designed one? I like how it is a replica of the actual product. Not only is it promoting the brand, it also somehow makes people less uncomfortable with the idea of condoms by turning it into a regular office item.
COLGATE PROMOTIONAL USB
Here is a brand that doesn’t need introduction. Colgate Palmolive chose their most popular product and turned it into a collector’s flash drive. I’d want one!
The shape of the usb flash drive is the same as the gas tank. If you own one of these, it’s impossible that you’d buy other brands. You see it almost everyday and that will stick to your subconscious. That’s why promo flash drives are so popular: they’re damn effective in brand recall!
PFIZER PROMOTIONAL CAPSULE FLASH DRIVES
Pill-shapes USB drive for one of the most famous pharmaceutical companies. You can have different colors and you can actually customize your own USB capsules so it would look like your actual product.
GE LIGHTBULB USB
This lightbulb does not only store your files, it can also be your source of light! This flash drive automatically lights up the moment you plug it to your computer. This added feature makes it twice as awesome as the regular ones. Definitely something you should give away if you’re aiming to impress your clients.
