Order USB sticks for Quiver productions

This is going to cause Verbatim to loose their mind. They ate a large amount of these when we stopped using them, the price also went up a lot. I would feel better sourcing elsewhere. I will see what I can find, but will need artwork.
Tagging @kim into this conversation.

Can we pull someone from Marketing into this please? Last price from Verbatim was $ 4.80 ea for 1200. This site looks better....

@DaniAO the mini usb hasnt been too reliable @jessica by sourcing a new usb could it potentially be better than the one we currently have?

Josh, I am working to find other source for usb flash for quiver.
Mini2 uses a 'SDcard' whereas Mini1 (gladiola) was a usb flash -thumb drive however it was a 6gb, and the supplier did have high failures.

QUESTION: IS 6GB sufficient memory?
or is now the time we source a higher gb? and change?
Artwork is going to be needed for Taz& USB drive.

@kim 6gb should be fine. I think it would be best to keep to a relatively small capacity drive as the more files there are on the drive, the more quiver slows down when navigating for a file.

Tagging @DRobertson in for the artwork. But it would probably be good to have a few so he know what dimensions he designing for.

Thank @kim!

The previous Flash USB was 4gb, sorry for error on earlier post.
@Tyler is 4gb sufficient size?
@DRobertson If you have artwork, I have found a company that will make a mockup for our review. Please let me know.

@kim it can be larger than 4gb if it doesn't affect pricing. It is possible 4gb maybe a hardware to source size at this point.

@Steven is there a limit on the size of USB stick we can go?

clip dimensions: Front 0.50" H x 0.88" W
Please provide artwork for sample mockup @DRobertson

Draft is attached. Do we need a ® on the USB?

I hesitate to put the TAZ 7 on the USB stick. We did this with the Mini and had a lot left over and are know sitting on this inventory.

I feel it would be better just to do LulzBot on them, and then we can use them on other projects as well.

@Hob @karrad @jessica thoughts?

If we could avoid the Taz7 that would be great

++ For just "LulzBot" we can use the "LulzBot Mini" until we run out of inventory, and switch all the things over

@eBeardslee and @mcoronado, sorry missed tagging you on this one.

Thoughts on just using LulzBot on the USB? Also @DRobertson asked if we need a ® on the USB?

Just LulzBot® would be ideal IMO

@DRobertson I sent the pdf you posted earlier to have mock-up usb created. would it be possible to revise the pdf? right away?

DRobertson added a comment.EditedJan 14 2019, 2:20 PM

Yes, as soon as I saw the comments I made another. It is attached.

Hello, Updated pdf with only Lulzbot and registered has been sumitted to supplier for consideration.

I think the green looks amazing. Anyway we can get white text on there instead of gray?

Green with white lettering

Green USB, black case, white lettering be my vote.

I like the green usb black case and black lettering. It kinda matches the artwork on quiver

green usb, black case, white lettering gets my vote.

@kim green usb, black case, white lettering is the one to go with.

EL-MS0543 is the part number that we need to get added to the BoM.

kim added a comment.Jan 15 2019, 3:30 PM
