The wedding industry in the UK is a multi-million pound industry, with many couples investing time and effort into putting together a day that they will never forget. Branded technology expert USB2U, which has worked with the likes of ASOS and Barry M Cosmetics, recognises this. They offer a wide range of fantastic technology, including branded USBs, that their wedding photographer clients can utilise to display their work on to give as keepsakes for the bride and groom. A perfect addition to a perfect day.
From dresses to flowers and venues to honeymoons, it can be one of the most time consuming (and money consuming) times in a couple’s lives. Aside from the venue, often one of the biggest expenses is a wedding photographer, with 78% of couples in the UK hiring a professional, and the average couple spending £1,520 on photography for their big day. Capturing each special moment is vital to many a bride and groom, and being able to look over those images every so often is a true bonding experience for each couple. So, not only is the execution of the service on the day vital, the presentation of those important images after the ceremony needs to be thought about.
Wedding photographers can ensure that they stand out from the crowd, both with prospective and current clients with personalised USB sticks and personalised presentation boxes. Of the wedding suppliers and creatives that brides follow on the social media channel Instagram, 41% of these are photographers, so having strong branding, imagery and interesting things to post is a great way of photographers engaging and interacting with prospective clients. The boxes and USBs can be engraved with logos, slogans or imagery that reflect the photographer’s branding, making for a truly special touch and a truly lasting impression.
The Woodland USB memory stick from USB2U is a firm favourite with photographers, and is now available in five lovely pastel shades, along with the brand-new luxury leather boxes. Both the box and the pastel painted Woodland USB can be laser engraved or printed digitally in full colour or white ink, and can easily meet the demands of transferring multiple high res images.
The USBs themselves can be customised in not only a wide range of colours, but in a wide range of shapes too, from tokens of love like hearts to the logo of the photographer, and more. USB2U has noted a rise in orders from photographers who have taken engagement shots of their clients, who then send their images on a personalised USB along with a pre-loaded ‘message’ to their wedding guests as a quirky invite to the big day.
There has also been a rise in choosing a USB in favour of a thank you card. Rather than sending the generic Thank You letter to everyone, brides and grooms have been searching for interesting options on how to ensure each and every guest felt a treasured part and appreciated. A personalised USB with the bride and groom’s names, initials or a sweet illustration are pre- loaded with images of the wedding ceremony, and reception, giving the guests more memories that they can cherish. It is also a great way to distribute those photo booth style photographs that are becoming a trend throughout weddings in the UK. They are also a fantastic way to allow those who could not make it to the big day to feel involved too and brides and grooms could send absentee guests a snippet of what they missed out on.
