There are several printing methods available for custom printed USB flash drives.
The most common method is screen printing, which uses a stencil to apply ink to the surface of the USB drive.A flash drive is coated with the design or logo you wish to imprint on it. Then, the color is applied over the screen, only touching your flash drive where the image’s silhouette has been cut into it. If there are multiple colors in the imprint, several screens will be produced to place each color on the correct “location.” This method is best suited for large orders, as it is relatively quick and inexpensive.
Another common method is digital printing, which uses a high-resolution printer to print directly onto the surface of the drive. This method is best suited for small orders, as it is more expensive and time-consuming than screen printing.
Pad printing is another popular way to produce custom USB flash drives. This method uses a silicone pad to apply ink to the surface of the drive. Pad printing is best suited for smaller orders, as it is more expensive and time-consuming than screen printing.
Finally, some companies offer laser engraving for their custom printed USB flash drives. This method uses a laser to etch your design into the surface of the drive. Laser engraving is best suited for large orders, as it is quick and inexpensive.
When choosing a printing method for your custom printed USB flash drives, it is important to consider the quantity of drives you need, the budget you have, and the turnaround time you need. Screen printing is best suited for large orders, while digital printing is best suited for small orders. Pad printing and laser engraving are both suitable for small or large orders.
If you need your custom printed USB flash drives quickly, digital printing is the best option. If you have a larger budget, screen printing is the best option. And if you need a high-quality finish, laser engraving is the best option. Whichever printing method you choose, make sure to use a reputable company that has experience printing on USB flash drives.
The procedure for creating personalized flash drives
A vector file is the best file format to use for your custom printed USB drive design. If you don’t have a vector file, we can help you create one (additional fees may apply). A vector file ensures that your image can scale without losing resolution.
Once we have your vector file, we will overlay it with an image of the product to create a virtual proof. This will give you a good approximation of what your custom printed USB drive will look like. During this step, you will be able to determine if the image colors and dimensions work with the product. If not, we can make changes to the design until it is perfect for your needs.
Pre-production proof. Once the virtual proof is approved, we will print the final image on an actual flash drive. We will have a photograph taken for final verification.
Production will begin with your final image and product decision.
You can expect to receive your final product within 2-3 weeks. Thank you for choosing USB Memory Direct!
