Single Custom Flash Drive (UK)

Hi There

I want to get a customised flash drive for myself and 2 employees, all three different. All the companies I see do a minimum order of 25 or 10 or something like that. Can anybody point me in the direction of a company that would be able to produce just one flash drive that's customised? I have had quite an extensive search and have only found one based in the US, that had a poor range (I am in the UK).

Thanks

Sam

When you say "custom," what kind of customization are you looking for? Different capacities, colors, engraving, 3.0 ability? Because I have found a few but most of them deal with engraving and then others deal mostly with colorful sleeves.

This site offers very colorful usb drives that can be customized with two colors(one for the drive, and one for the swivel) that can also be engraved. You can order them individually as well, but the pre-tax price for 1 8GB usb flash drive w/o engraving is $41.99.

Then I think the site I included would be the right one.

Yeah, ridiculously so. I think it might even be cheaper if you put them together yourself and found a custom engraver near you. You can buy bare flash drives, and even buy custom colorful sleeves. Maybe find a way to attach a thinner piece of metal to one of the sleeves and get an engraver to put the logo/name/whatever onto that.

You're welcome. And this way, you could also get something larger than 8GB.
