When I started photographing weddings in 2007, I delivered images via CDs, and eventually DVDs when CDs' maximum capacities no longer was enough for the images we were delivering. Then in 2013, I came across the folks at USB Memory Direct and started delivering custom flash drives with all of my weddings. This coincided well with Apple's removing DVD drives from their iMac's, so I was already searching for a new solution. Fast forward to 2018, and many photographers have started delivering weddings via digital download - which seems like an obvious next step right? Wrong. I never want a couple's first experience seeing their images to be dependent upon the speed of their internet connection or the cloud, and in an age when people are printing less and less, I still find value in the tangible deliverable.
Fast forward to a couple of weeks ago when the USB Memory Direct team reached out to see if I might be interested in testing my logo on some new drive types. Check out the below to see what they came up with. For the present I'll be sticking with my previous design as inventory lasts, but I'm also excited to explore some new paths for deliverables in the near future.
Disclaimer: While I've been a paying USB Memory customer for years, and will continue to be, they supplied these new test drives at no charge.
