In the past I have used Moo.com for my Ubuntu Member Business Cards which I often give out at conferences and events I’m speaking or promoting Ubuntu at. I knew I was running out of Moo cards and I thought about the idea of having some really nice cards made to give out to people I’m trying to impress versus the run of the mill business card I give out regularly. That’s when I heard that USBMemoryDirect.com makes USB Memory Business Cards.
Anyway, I pitched the idea of having some Ubuntu USB Business Cards made to Mike Khaytman who leads marketing for USBMemoryDirect.com and sure enough he liked the idea and I sent him over some logos and told him about the Ubuntu font and other details. In just a few hours he had a nice design mockup for me and shortly afterwards the design was sent off to the factory to be made.
So these specific USB Memory Business cards will run ~$10 per drive for a small order or if your ordered several hundred the cost could be brought down to about $7 per card but these prices do fluctuate depending on the cost of memory on any given day which is why they ask you to get in touch to get a quote.
Each of my special 4GB Ubuntu Memory Business Cards are going to be loaded with Ubuntu 12.04 LTS so not only can I share my details with people I can also give them software that I personally contribute to the development of which will be a nice conversation starter.
