Tips & Techniques:CDs - Good trick to reduce a project's CDR usage

I bought a bunch of 1gb flash drives with my logo on them. I sell one to every client at my cost and dump all the rough mixes they ask for onto their drives. They bring them in to every session. I bounce tracks right to the drives. Saves CDs/HD space and is generally more organized. It's worked out well so far. Some clients are totally computer illiterate and require audio CDs, but I've cut down on using discs by about 75%.

Do they listen only on their computers? Or are they burning their own CDRs?

Good idea. Where did you buy drives with your logo on them? Or did you add that yourself?

They burn their own CDs if needed. Otherwise, they can load the files on ipods, itunes, etc.

I think it´s a great idea. I tried that but most of the clients likes to listen to the mixes in their cars so I have to wait until they buy those audio-car systems with USB.
