Last minute gift idea: Make a USB flash drive mixtape!

13 February 2016 in Fun | Personalised | USB Flash Drives | USB Memory Sticks | DIY

We all have the best intentions to get our friends, family and loved ones fantastic gifts for birthdays and Christmas, but sometimes even the best laid plans go awry. Thankfully, in this modern age there are so many ways you can make a great last minute gift that are still thoughtful and sweet but without a hefty price tag or spending hours hunched over a craft project (though that can be fun too!).

We all know how versatile USB flash drives are, so use yours to its full potential and create your loved one a USB mixtape. It's fun and easy to do and makes a great last minute gift. Before we give you our tips on how to make a flash drive mixtape, we must state that we are, of course, not lawyers and we cannot guarantee the legality of this form of music sharing. As far as we are aware, sharing music for personal, non commercial use is permitted by most music retailers, but please check first if you're not sure!

With that out of the way, let's go ahead and make a mixtape.

1. Get an awesome USB drive. Head over to our website now and pick out a novelty, sparkly, or classic drive for your beau, friend, or family member. We have a great selection and with our engraving service and great range of premium packaging, you can make this gift as personal as you want it to be.  We make no apologies for that shameless plug.

2. Choose the right capacity. We supply flash drives from 512MB up to a whopping 32GB, so whether you want space for just a couple of songs or for several albums, we've got you covered.

3. Choose your songs! For iTunes users, you can right click the song and click "show in finder" or "show in explorer" and copy the file to the USB drive. Or you can just locate the music folder in your documents, and copy and paste your songs directly from there - whichever is easiest for you.

4. Add other stuff, perhaps a mini speaker to make a full musical package gift.

5. Add the finishing touches. Maybe just add a little tag to the flash drive (particularly easy if they come with a keyring built in or a loop for one (like many of ours do), put it in a gift box, or a little gift bag. If you get your drive from us, we can take care of those packaging options for you.

And you're done! If you've made a flash drive mixtape or if you have any great ideas for a playlist, let us know in the comments.

Chinese New Year & Engravings

20 January 2016 in Personalised | USB Flash Drives

 

Happy Chinese New Year! As the celebrations are so large, we unfortunately must put a temporary hold on our engraving services. If you wish to order a personalised drive feel free to contact us, but we cannot guarantee a ready date - our usual 25-working-day lead time does not apply.

Standard engraving services will resume midway through February. If you need an engraved drive in the meantime, we stock several pre-engraved varieties heart - you can choose from "Our Wedding" , "Love You" and a three-heart design, as well as our Keep Calm and Save Dog Tags.

Pre-Engraved Diamond Hearts!

6 July 2015 in Branded | Personalised | USB Flash Drives | USB Memory Sticks

The Silver Diamond Heart flash drive is one of our most popular memory sticks - a perfect gift for loved ones, or for photographers to present their pictures on. Due to popular demand, we've decided to release a range of these beautiful flash drives that are pre-engraved with three sought-after engravings:

'Love you'

'Our Wedding' 

and three simple hearts.

Since the engravings don't have to be custom ordered, we can offer these at a better price than our usual engravings - and since they're kept in stock, there's no delay in ordering them - they'll post out immediately!

Fresh in: web keys

13 June 2014 in Branded | Business | Personalised | Promotions | USB Flash Drives | USB Memory Sticks

Have you heard of web keys? Do you know what they are? If you run a business or have something to promote, then they really could be a game changer for you.

When your customers plug in one of your web keys, it will direct them to whatever web address you've loaded on there. You could run a contest, advertise a sale, or simply use them to direct people to your web site. They can link to any valid URL, so you could send customers to an otherwise hidden page on your site for exclusive deals or content

Web keys are a great alternative to a business card as you can have them emblazoned with your logo and send people directly to your web site, facebook page, or any other link of your choosing.

Web keys are small and light, making them ideal for posting out to clients or giving away at trade shows and exhibitions. It's a great way to stand out from the crowd of competition companies overwhelming your potential customers with business cards and flyers, and means you can present a whole lot more information with one tiny product.

So, what are you waiting for? Head over to our new Web Key section on our web site and get your business moving!

This time it's personal.

Of all the things you'd expect to have confiscated at airport security, would you ever suspect your Memory Mate flash drives would be one of them? Well that's exactly what happened to Memory Mates customer DJ Adam Cobbsky when he was trying to get through Heathrow security. According to Heathrow's staff, they had to confiscate the casings due to the 'nature of their design'. Thankfully, Adam was able to keep hold of the USB drives themselves and do his gig in Rotterdam.

 

 

We felt for the poor guy, and so in return for his permission to do this little feature on him and his airport woes we offered to send him a new set of casings to replace the ones that were confiscated, complete with personalised engraving. Needless to say, he was delighted!

 

"Absolutely love my Memory Mate gun disks, they look awesome plugged into a pair of Pioneer CDJ2000's, and they've been super reliable. Just don't keep them in your hand luggage when travelling via Heathrow Airport!!"

Personalised Flash Drives

28 February 2014 in Personalised | USB Flash Drives | USB Memory Sticks

Personalised gifts add that extra special level of care to a gift that might otherwise appear quite ordinary (not that any of our novelty flash drives are anything close to ordinary!). The internet is full of companies waiting to print your name, logo, or artwork onto mugs, mousemats, tote bags – you name it, they’ve got it. But have you noticed that if you want to order personalised items in smaller quantities, maybe as low as just one, you have to compromise on the quality or the price?

Our personalised flash drives are particularly popular among wedding photographers who like to present their finished images to couples in a way that’s professional as well as personal – they’d also make great wedding favours. But they’re also popular with big brands that need to make a statement at a company event or to promote new products. We can cater to their larger orders just as easily as we can cater to your order for a personalised drive for your mum for Mother’s Day (that’s coming up you know). We can even preload files onto them for you.

So if you need a personalised flash drive for yourself or a gift, or a box load for wedding guests, or several box loads for a promotional event then you need to talk to us about what we can offer you. Our prices start low, but each unit gets cheaper the more you order! What more could you ask for? Well, we also have no minimum order quantity and no matter how many you buy, you will get the same brilliant product and service from us, guaranteed. If an item can be personalised, you will see the option when ordering!
