Pantone® Matched USB Drives
If you have decided upon which USB Style you’d like, then you’re probably now wondering about other options, such as colour and print. USB Makers’ styles offer a range of standard shell colours to choose from; however if none of these colours suit your tastes or needs, a Pantone Matched USB Drive maybe for you. Select styles, for a small fee, can be freed from the restriction of standard colourings by having their shells ‘Pantone-Matched’.
What are Pantone Colours?
A ‘pantone colour’ is a block colour that is part of a greater catalogue of colours called the Pantone Formula Guide. This catalogue assigns each colour with its own code. What this means is, is that each colour is universally recognized, this method is commonly utilized by industries such as print, fabrics and most importantly, plastics.
So what is ‘Pantone-Matching My Shell’?
What this means for your USB project is that certain styles offered at USB Makers can have their shells custom made with a pantone colour of your choosing. Moreover if you don’t know the pantone colour you’d like, our graphics team can match a colour from your logo to a pantone colour which can be used for the colour of the shell, resulting in a truly individualized end product. For example, below is USB Maker’s logo. This has been matched to pantone colour PMS 212c. USB Makers can now take this ‘code’ and use it to replicate the colour from the logo when making the shell of the USB. The result is a Pantone Matched USB Drive. It’s as simple as that.
Why Pantone Match?
Whilst the basic colours available to most styles cover most basic needs, with most styles being available in Red, Green, Blue, Yellow, Black and White, a Pantone Matched USB Drive expands your options tremendously to thousands and thousands of colours options. But most importantly, by pantone-matching your logo to your USBs’ shell, adds that unique touch to your USB, separating it from the rest and re-enforcing the print of your brand on your USB project, this service is available to you for only a small additional fee to the total order value, orders above 500 units can have this service included for free.
