What are Web Keys?

Web Keys (or USB Web Keys) are small, USB devices that physically look a lot like USB flash drives.  They are used by marketers to direct customers to specific websites, landing pages, or online content. They do not, however, have storage the way typical USB flash drives do. Instead, they are encoded with a command that launches a specific URL on your computer automatically with no user intervention required.

Web Keys can be fabricated from paper or plastic and integrated right into your brochure, business card, Web Key folder, or custom piece. Web Keys give you the flexibility to modify, update and test campaigns and promotions by changing the URL destination. Combine print and technology with custom Web Keys for marketing campaigns, education, and sales tools.

All Synergem Web Keys are encoded on-site at our U.S. facility.
