Custom Shaped Flash Drives Process

Exploring Custom Shaped Flash Drives: A Look Inside the Process

Have you ever wondered how custom shaped flash drives are created? Of course, we would love to say that all you have to do is send us a design and we use our magical flash drive powers to make it appear, but that only happens in fairy tales. In reality, there is actually a lot of important steps that take place before your custom shaped flash drives arrive at your door. That's why we are sharing a detailed look into the creation of custom shaped flash drives.

Meet Our Company Mascot, Ubie!

Did you know we have a mascot? Well to your surprise we do, and its name is Ubie! In the past, we were struggling to create a brand for our company. It wasn't until we redesigned our website that everything started to fall into place. Once Ubie came along, our brand changed for the better, and we finally had the perfect mascot we'd been searching for since the start of our company.

10 Years of Open Source at USB Memory Direct

Today marks our ten year anniversary of using Open Source software. We have learned so many things about Open Source throughout the years, most significant of all is how important it has been to the success of our business. Without our accidental discovery of Ubuntu a decade ago and our brazen disregard for industry IT norms we might not be the company we are now.
