If you need customised USB flash drives urgently then your best bet is to speak to the team at USB2U. They hold lots of stock in the UK, they can print them in house (full colour) and they can data-load them as well if that’s what you need - For Custom USB Sticks in a hurry just give them a call or fill out the on-line enquiry form on their web site.
During Chinese New Year lots of customers end up chasing limited local stock simply because the factories in China stop manufacturing and shipping for around 4 weeks. This in turn leads to a shortage of supply in the UK and what stock there is tends to get snapped up pretty quickly. One of the few suppliers that hold stock throughout this period is USB2U.
Having been selling USB flash drives since 2002 they've nearly been all the way around the Chinese New Year Zodiac so they are well prepared for the challenges it brings. Fortunately for their customers this means continuity of supply even when other local suppliers can't deliver - OK, it might be on a narrower range and your choices might be limited to a few colours and memory sizes but they normally have something that will work with any logo or design!
Recent investments made by USB2U mean that they can now offer full colour print on their USB sticks and get them delivered to their customers within 24hrs! If you want to take advantage of this super-fast service then you’ll need to get your order confirmed by 10am in the morning and have your artwork ready, any data-load ready and you’ll need to make yourself available to work with USB2U’s designers throughout the day. If you can do this then they your USB sticks could be delivered to you the very next day!
With USB2U you also get the benefit of a 5 year warranty on all custom USB sticks purchased, they put their USB sticks through a rigorous 5-point QA check and you can be assured that they only use Grade A components (flash memory and controller chips) inside their USB flash drives.
