A touching story — The Healing Power of Picks

We find that we are sometimes amazed at the ways in which custom guitar picks are used…from playing guitar and throwing them out to fans, to using them for baby showers and as business cards, they really are a versatile item. Recently, one of our customers shared with us how the custom guitar picks that she ordered to commemorate her son, who passed away at a much-too-young age of 22, really made a difference in her healing after this tragic event took place.

Below is a full article, entitled Sustain: How One Family Kept a Young Musician’s Spirit Alive [...]

Strumming for the Cause

A couple weeks ago, we had the opportunity to make guitar picks to help support a wonderful cause. One of our customers, Justin Jacobs, has a passion for guitars and has recently been working on a very special project…building a guitar that he has christened the 65 Roses Guitar. Jacobs himself was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis at the age of three, and he explains that kids that age have trouble saying “cystic fibrosis” and it ends up being pronounced like “sixty five roses.”

Because Cystic Fibrosis is still non-curable, Jacobs wanted to take action to help find a cure. He [...]

Strong as Steel


I thought that this design for custom guitar picks was an especially cool one. There is a high level of detail to the artwork, but even on the small guitar picks it comes out crisp and clean.

This means that, instead of having a border around their design, the art extends all the way to the very edge of the pick to allow maximum design space, and full coverage on the base pick material. Incidentally, the picks were made using [...]
