With my name on them. How much do they cost?

I want to get away from DVD media for client distribution if it's economical.

Optical disk technology needs to die already.

Just what I was looking for Tim. Roughly $20 for a 4gb drive including a logo/text and a gift box. No minimum quantities.

Right now I'm printing artwork on a watershield DVD like I did during my video days. It only costs a buck or two but the time and hassle isn't worth it anymore because I'm getting lazy.

I hung around there until it turned into a pay site. Now I think one needs to prove they're an established wedding photographer. I'm just a 2nd shooter who gets the occasional solo gig thrown his way and I don't really look for bookings. I don't even have a website - don't want one - don't need one. Life is good.

I'm the bottom feeder the DWF folks love to hate. :D

The fee is a great way to keep out the bottom feeding riff raff ;)

And you can do it monthly. They have a place where you can advertise your availability for second shooters, and its not too pricey.

It's working. :) And makes perfect sense to me. In my video days I was a member of a pay site. It was nice to write anything you want and be immune from Google and wayward clients.

I keep busy enough with the guys I shoot for the way it is. Most are bottom feeders themselves so we all get along nicely. :D

How is the client supposed to view photos on a USB on their TV?
Only on a PC if it has USB; older ones dont.

I still run into offices running Win98,95,3.11 and DOS and one had a PC made in 1982 with no hdd nor a mouse.

I would stick with CDRs, several if need be, as some DVD players dont play burned DVDs.
Oh, and why not use BluRay? BD discs are cheaper now.

Go visit your local electrical store... they will show you

Cater for the mass market not the minority who are still living in the 90's

Knowing your previous posts in other threads though I'd hazard a guess your response was purely for trolling purposes.

You did miss one though...

I supply both DVD and USB. Let's face it DVDs cost next to nothing so supplying them as well as USBs doesn't really change the bottom line.

I just recently switched from DVDs to flash drives. Optical media is on its way out, and IMO, it's a nicer way to present their photos. I include a little note encouraging them to save the folder of images to their computer to share/print, etc. and keep the flash drive as a "just in case" copy. These are from photoflashdrive.com, the sister site of pexagontech.com. I'm very happy with them - the boxes came unfinished, so I stained them myself.

Holy DANG that staining job is beautiful!

We get our USB drives and boxes from Millers. In fact, they look like the exact same thing that you have there.

Nice idea to stain it - I use them as they come and customers love them.
