I'd appreciate it, I can find generic boxes, but even Flashbay.com who makes the wafers, doesn't offer a nice wedding style case. I found a place in Switzerland, but waiting to hear back for sure. I haven't found any US suppliers of a wafer case that looks like a wedding.

Thanks Andrew, I ran across them in my search, I contacted them to see if they can help. (after Chrome translated the page ofcourse.)

Great Job Clive! That screams class and professional presentation. You are a far cry ahead of saying "your video is ready, go here to download it". I would put a couple of business cards in the box under the cardboard holder so they could be found later after they pull the jump drive out.

Kind Regards,

Steve

Looking good folks. Agonised over packaging myself recently and settled on a DVD/USB combo. My films are still long form with short highlights but I intend to work on a short form version of things and push that so I can get a better quality onto the USB. Here's what I have just now.

If you are taking 1000/1500 per wedding, surely 10/15 per client on their physical product is reasonable?

I sourced the boxes, the insert and the USB all from separate companies.

What do you guys think?

Value for money is always increased multiple times over if the bride receives a well presented physical product ... These guys in the UK have some nice products Prestigious Disc & USB Combination Cases - Presentation Flash Drive / Cases

If you can grab some stills off the video or even take some yourself then I have seen some really neat albums that allow for photos on half a dozen pages and then a mounting space for disks and USB's ...long gone are the days when your bride was presented with a huge white album box and opened it to find a white linen album wrapped in tissue paper ... It might sound corny but the perceived value to the bride increases massively if you take a bit of time and present an impressive looking product and not just a USB tossed into an envelope!!

I've spent the past week trying to find a distributor for printing packaging for the credit card drive, and most everything I find is over seas. My normal printer doesn't have anything creative, most US printers have basic usb boxes.

Thanks Chris for the link. Its something I've been thinking of. Its expensive, but as you say, its value to customers can't be overlooked.

Those are some nice boxes. Ours are always well received.

For those who print their own custom boxes or cases you really can save time and get a better image by just using a branded Disk and packaging. We get them printed in bulk and it saves so much time than doing layouts and printing. Its only ever a unique selling point if you make it one.

This year, I decided to try the Asukabook DVD presentation books (they also make USB, but I'm still doing DVD delivery).

They're a little pricey at about $70/each for the book, but I think this will be a unique way to give the DVD to them. I use the 12-page album option, and simply drag and drop some of the photographers photos in there.
