Always Keep Your Portfolio with You with These Custom Credit Card USB Drives

customusb1

As a photographer, it’s a good idea to always have your portfolio with you. Given the advent of smartphone photography, that’s not much of an issue. Many portfolio websites offer mobile optimized versions of your site that you can easily show prospective clients on the go.

But if you’re looking for a way to keep higher resolution photos on you to showcase wherever you might be — or maybe a creative way to deliver final shots to clients — you might wanna take a look at Cartable+Convenience.

A small company by the looks of the website, they specialize in creating credit card sized, customizable USB drives. Measuring in at about 2 credit cards thick, the cards fit in your wallet so they’re always handy, and they come in several pre-selected “prints.”

If none of the prints appeal to you, or if you just want something more personal, you can also send a photo or logo for them to print on the card itself.

It’s not a business card you’d want to give away often, but it might make for a great photo delivery system so that clients always have your info on hand when the next project comes along — kind of like the car-themed hard drives and thumb drives we shared with in the past.

Price wise, it looks like you’ll be spending $10 on a 4GB card (custom or otherwise), $15 on an 8GB and $20 on a 16GB. To learn more about the card drives or pick one up for yourself, head over to Cartable+Convenience by clicking here.

    Flashbay is another good (tested and relied upon) source that I use for client delivery. They have a broad selection of usb drive styles, include the full image credit card style that Cartable+Convenience offers. With custom branding, their average priced usb drive, cases, shipping, taxes, etc. it’s running about 18-25$ per 16GB key.

    Or what if there was this network of computers, all sharing information over wires, and you could access it almost anywhere in the world? That would probably be a good place to keep it too :)

    But this is cooler. Which makes you cooler. Which makes people more likely to want to do business with you.
