    Branded USB Sticks

USB sticks are perfect promotional gifts.

A Branded USB stick is the most versatile and effective promotional giveaway around. USB flash drives endure as a logo branded gift because its spare memory space is useful and it can store your promotional material which you can lock to prevent it being removed.

If you want to distribute your promotional materials or other documents for reading on a device then USB sticks make the perfect storage device. It makes sense to brand them since the option of printing your company logo is included in the price. Forget your printed brochures!

Smaller memory sizes are cheaper but these days the difference in price between sizes at the lower end are small. It's worth thinking about going for the next size up so that your client or business prospect gets more use out of it.

Twister, Swivel, Swing & Rotate USB Drives

We call these Twister USB sticks but you might also know them as Rotate/Rotator, Swivel or Swing USB Drives or even Pen Drives.

The Twister USB is the most popular USB Flash Drive in our whole range by far. They have twistable swivel covers which protect the USB connector and the covers stay attached so there is no cap to lose. That makes them especially good for schools. For most models these twister lids are metal and some have very attractive coloured metal to match the plastic body.

What makes promotional flash drives so versatile?

A USB Flash Drive is incredibly versatile as a logo branded item. You can have it pre-loaded with your own promotional material and you can use it to distribute your catalogue or other documents, typically in PDF format.

You can make your info read-only. In other words you can write-protect your material so that the customer cannot remove it from your drive yet you can ensure that you provide enough spare storage space on the flash drive to make it useful for your customer.

You can have an auto-run feature so that every time your branded memory stick is plugged into a computer it runs your introduction. This could be just a "thank you" to remind them of you, or it could be the introduction to your content on the memory stick to allow easy access to your promotion or catalogue.

Concerts & festivals

You can store an awful lot of music and video media onto flashdrives and we find bands and concert promoters to be very interested in USB sticks as promotional giveaways that allow festival goers to take their memories away from the gig.

Metal USB Drives

Metal USB flash drives have an expensive and exclusive look and feel but they don't cost the earth.

They can be screen printed or laser engraved with your company logo and promotional message.

They usually, but not always cost few pence more than the budget USB range but the quality makes up for the difference. A touch of class when you want to impress your important customers.

What is so great about using USB keys to promote your brand? Well you only have to look at them to see they are extremely convenient and you won't lose them because they are where your other keys are.

Since your customers and prospects carry keys everywhere they go then your brand goes with them everywhere and it shows up clearly to others. That is what sets branded USB keys apart from all the other promotional paraphernalia like mugs and pens. They cost a bit more than promotional pens but they do an awful lot more and they stay with your prospect and customers an awful lot longer.

Do you give brochures away at trade shows or when you meet a prospective client? Remember when you last picked up brochures from somebody? Where are they now? If they were on a USB stick on a keyring they would probably be in your pocket right now!

It is easy to put your promotional material on it and still leave masses of spare space for your customer to make use of. Great for work documents, pictures, MP3s. You name it!

Pens with USB Drives.

Promotional USB Pen Drives

Does it come as a surprise to see Pen Drives in the shape of a pen? A lot of people use the name pen drive to mean a USB stick generally rather than something pen shaped.

Either way, we hope you like want you find here and if you are not looking for pen shapes please take a look around the website because we have lots of different styles and you are sure to find something good.

A Branded USB Stick by any other name...

So what do you call it?

It is hard to imagine a single product with so many names. Apart from USB Stick and Flash Drive here are some variations. The point to bear in mind is that they all mean exactly the same thing.

The USB Stick versus Memory Stick

Obviously these things contain computer memory and a USB connector but where does the stick come from?

At one point a memory stick was a particular kind of portable memory format invented by Sony which was slim enough to slip into a camera as well as a computer so it was handy for transferring photos. It had its proprietary connector that was nothing like USB so it isn't the same but that is probably how the USB stick got its name.

What is so flash about Flash Drives?

Any electronics bod should probably know the history of electronic memory. Things like read-only memory (ROM) that is fixed as opposed to random access memory (RAM) that is loaded when the computer is switched on and forgets everthing when the power is switched off.

Then some bright spark said ROM should be programmable and came up with PROM. Another said make it erasable so we had EPROM but that had to be done by taking the chip out of the circuit. Next up was the electrically erasable EEPROM which could be changed in-situ. The method of erasing and programming was slow so a mega-brain said lets make it writable using a technique like on a floppy disk then programming the memory would be done in one operation which to the inventors was was a bit like a camera flash. Flash Memory was born

The rest is history. A bit boring since nothing actually flashes.

Pen Drive

For some reason USB sticks were called pen drives from very early on even though they didn't look like pens. For example the popular twister USB was referred to as a pen drive.

Different parts of the world prefer different names and pen drive is popular in Malaysia where the inventor of the USB stick, Pua Khein-Seng is known as "father of the pen drive".

The name pen drive seems to be popular with schools and their pupils and schools often buy flash drives printed with the school emblem to be issued to pupils for their homework assignments.

It is kind of ironic and a bit confusing that many USB sticks are now combined with ball-point pens. Some of those are very popular, especially the better quality examples.

Thumb Drives

The early vendors of flash drives as commercial products used Thumb Drive as a brand name and somehow the name lingers on but its not very popular. Another brand name was DiskOnKey so that could be the origin of the name Key Drive and USB key.
