After receiving word from Pink Spruce that the images from your session are available, you begin shopping for prints and products noting the ability to purchase a USB drive. You begin to wonder what a USB drive is, what the options are, and whether or not you need one. There are many different reasons for adding one to your order, but today I am going to give you my Top 3 Reasons you Need a USB drive.
But first, let’s talk about what a USB Drive is and the options available with Pink Spruce Photography.
What is a USB Drive?
A USB Drive is a portable file storage device. They have (for the most part) replaced having your images burned and saved onto CDs.
USB Drive Options with Pink Spruce
Pink Spruce Photography currently offers clients two options when it comes to purchasing a USB Drive:
Option #1: A customized crystal USB drive (with customized storage box)
Option #2: A wooden USB drive
Crystal USB Drive with Customized Storage Box
The crystal USB drive comes customized with your initials/wedding date or family name. The metallic cap will come in your choice of rose gold (as pictured), gold, or silver. The drive comes in a customized dark grey storage box with matching metallic foil printing.
Wooden USB Drive
The wooden USB Drive has a magnetic cap and will come adorned with the Pink Spruce Photography logo.
3 Reasons you Need a USB Drive
I could go on and on as to why it is indeed invaluable to purchase a USB drive with Pink Spruce Photography, but here are my Top 3 Reasons you Need a USB Drive:
Reason #1: The USB Drive creates an automatic backup for your images
Pink Spruce Photography recommends you backup your images in at least three different places. You can use external hard drives, CDs, cloud based storage, and (of course) USB Drives. Please note however, Pink Spruce does not recommend using the drive for other things. Let your images live on it alone.
Reason #2: Pink Spruce Photography’s USB Drive options are keepsakes of your memories
Because Pink Spruce Photography offers such beautiful, customizable, and high quality USB Drive options, they inevitably become keepsakes of the memories created in your images. This means they also make a great gift option!
Reason #3: Purchasing a USB Drive within your gallery eliminates the need to download
Your final edited gallery can include dozens, hundreds, even thousands of images (especially true for wedding day galleries). You will then need to download each image one-by-one and then save them in multiple places. When you purchase a USB drive alongside your gallery with Pink Spruce Photography, it will come already loaded with your images. You are still able to download images from your gallery while you wait for the drive to arrive.
