Full Service Flash Drive Packaging


If you follow this blog with any consistency, you probably know how awesome the FlashPad™ is. If you don’t, here’s a brief reminder why it is the top tier of custom flash drive packaging.

 

The FlashPad is a turned-edge hardcover binding that, when affixed with a die-cut foam insert, essentially becomes a book. This “book” in turn can hold a flash drive, pen, or any other like materials. The near-endless customization options and sharp presentation make these pads a memorable packaging choice. Not everybody opens up an email…but everyone opens up a FlashPad.

But you might not realize how convenient it is to get your FlashPad from SunPack into your client’s hands. We’re practically a one-stop shop. Sure we make custom flash drive packaging, but we’re also a custom corrugated box and thermoforming facility–which means we can do so much more for you.

 

It’s Truly Full Service Flash Drive Packaging.

 

Let’s run through it, shall we?

5 Ways to Get Noticed with Custom Flash Drive Packaging

 

Everybody knows how cool flash drives are, right? USB drives have taken data storage to the next level. But what if I told you there’s still another level? A way to make your flash drive more than a flash in the pan. A way to make your jump drive jump higher. A way for your thumb drive to get a thumbs up.

 

It’s Called Custom Flash Drive Packaging.

More specifically, it’s called the FlashPad™ and it’s crazy versatile. It’s a way to take your flash drive from typical trade show SWAG to memorable marketing tool. A way to make your fledgeling business shine, or give your old dog some new tricks. Custom flash drive packaging is the hybrid of an informational pamphlet and an email blast campaign–except, unlike most of those, this one will get opened, interacted with, and (most importantly) remembered. Coolest of all, the FlashPad™ has a die-cut foam insert tailored to your specifications–so a flash drive is just the start of what you can include.

 

Here’s a quick look at 5 ways you can ride the crest of this trend. Go ahead and read’em. These ideas are on the house.

 

The Modern Mixtape

You remember making a mixtape or CD for someone back in the day? And you juuuuuuust could not fit that one last song on there? Frustrating. Now imagine that on a global scale. Say you’re a garage band. You’ve played a few gigs around the neighborhood but you’ve dreamed bigger. You want a record deal. The Big Time. What are you going to do? Send out a CD, scribbled on with a Sharpie? Congratulations, you’ve given a record producer a new coaster. A perfect garbage can frisbee. But a personalized USB drive, dressed to the nines in custom flash drive packaging, shows you’re serious about making it big. A sharp, professional look. A mockup of your debut album, complete with a legible track list. Images of your band rocking out under the bright lights of your favorite venue. And, best of all, a preloaded thumb drive with all your songs.

 

Consider: going with a guitar-shaped flash drive. Maybe include a pen too for signing your contract.

 

The Better Business Card

If you’ve ever been on the business end of a tradeshow, you know how tough it can be to make an impression. You’re lucky if you get a couple minutes one-on-one to wow your potential client. More often than not, though, your pamphlet ends up lining a SWAG bag or someone just grabs your pen and vanishes. If only you could make that pen tell that person about your great business the next time they use it. With custom flash drive packaging, you can do one better: you can show instead of tell. The FlashPad™ becomes your pamphlet, complete with all the visuals and bullet points you love. And inside? Your talking pen: a personalized flash drive loaded up with instructional materials, your last office newsletter, videos of your product, and a shortcut to your website. Swish.

 

Consider: making your better business card look like an actual business card. A customized Credit Card Drive has that traditional look and slim design with all the functionality of a flash drive.

 

The Portable Portfolio

This isn’t the 80s where you can stumble into an interview with a goofy tie and cardboard box of rolled posters. Well, maybe you can pull off the goofy tie, but if your professional portfolio looks like you just got kicked out of your house, you’re in trouble. Now imagine being a graphic designer or an architect and strolling into that interview with a digital portfolio all presented in sleek, attractive custom flash drive packaging. Right off the bat, a customizable FlashPad™ printed with your designs is putting something visual and interactive into their hands. Or maybe you’re a wedding photographer hoping to show off your prints without the glare and bulkiness of a proof book.

 

Consider: putting your digital folder in a folder-shaped flash drive. Now that’s just cute.

The Autographable Ebook

I’ve mentioned this one before, but frankly, it’s a good idea. If you’re an indie author, you probably don’t have a lot of hard copies of your book lying around. And if you’re an author that dabbles exclusively in e-books, then you probably don’t have any lying around. But let’s say you hit it big with a monster e-seller. Somebody’s going to want you to autograph your book. Now if you’re a real smooth talker you might be able to take a permanent marker to their Kindle. Or if you’re a real fine handwriter, you might be able to inscribe the flash drive loaded up with your ebook files. But, if you’re smart, you’ll have a mockup of what your hardcover book would look like (in custom flash drive packaging form, of course). Sign that baby up and drop the mic!

 

Consider: Know who else thinks it’s a good idea? Only Hugh Howey, the guy that changed the face of ebook publishing FOREVER. See how custom flash drive packaging worked for him here.

 

The Standout Software

Scenario: You’ve just invented the most life-changing software of all time. Maybe it’s the ultimate pop-up blocker or the greatest pay-to-play app of all time. Now how are you going to get people to use it? Are you going to hit up Comic-Con with a little square of paper with your URL printed on it? Heck no! Load up a flash drive with a digital demo and secure it in some sleek Silicon Valley-style custom flash drive packaging and get some results! Don’t forget links, concept art, and screenshots!

 

Consider: making your FlashPad look like an old floppy disk. Because nostalgia.

All great points, I know. The standing ovation isn’t necessary, really. But all jokes aside, custom flash drives and packaging really do make a splash. They’re like a Bat Symbol for your intellectual properties. And in all cases, they give your potential producer/client/boss/whatever a smart, memorable asset. One with your name on it. And far more reusable (and professional) than any novelty whistle.

Hmarketing with USB packagingere is where the flashpad comes into play! MIOX attends and exhibits at industrial conventions and events in order to bring in business and spread awareness of their products and services. They needed a way to promote MIOX before the event and drive traffic to their tradeshow booth. To educate conference registrants prior to the event, MIOX chose a custom Flashpad and USB flash drive to distribute as a pre-mailer to promote their booth. MIOX’s flash pad has a turned edge case and holds a custom flash drive that was preloaded with various brochures and a promotional video!

This is the second time MIOX has used Sunrise Packaging for their promotional packaging needs. In the fall of 2012 MIOX used a Flashpad as a pre-mailer and were so pleased with the result that they are at it again! We can’t wait to hear the results!

The event that runs in Chicago November 2-5, 2014 will be one for the books now that recently retired late-night comedian will be there to liven things up a bit. PMMI, who puts on the event expects the Chicago expo to attract 2,000 exhibitors to a 1.1 million square foot space.

Create any size, shape,and color foam insert that specifically holds your product and complementary items. Foams are available in a wide range of densities as well, so depending on the amount of cushion or protection needed, you can choose a foam that fulfills your needs and fits your budget. The possibilities that accompany custom packaging manufacturing are vast, and its details like foam inserts, foil stamping and custom print that can really come together to create a cohesive piece.
