We just recently endorsed the band A Dull Science out of California. They have a good blend of a punk/pop sound to them. With some really great lyrics, that everyone can relate to, like their song “Cheaters never prosper”. This song has some killer lyrics to it, with a catchy chorus that I couldn’t help singing along to while looking over their press kit. Even better these guys seem to have a sense of humor which is refreshing to see since some bands can [...]
We have been making guitar picks for the company Cricket for several years now. Cricket provides wireless services to about 4 million customers in the United States. They are best knows for their flat rate billing methods for cellular phone use. We just got done with a project with them, so we wanted to show you the beautiful results. This year they went with new artwork, and it really is stunning. This pick is printed on our white promotional material, with jet black ink going all the way to the [...]

You can click on the picture to see other photos from the party Steve was at. The [...]
We’d like to welcome James Otto as our new featured artist! James cannot be really categorized with a single word. His music has a mix of country and rock and roll that almost anyone can appreciate. Upon reviewing his press kit I took an immediate liking to all of his music, though his song, “Just Got Started Lovin’ You” was already one of my favorite songs. James uses our Acetal Polymer material in the rounded triangle shape.

If you ever need graphics to design band logos and posters, they are a great place to look. Below are the picks they ordered from us for an event they are doing. This two sided design was put on [...]
A lot of people love my Utlem Gold pick, and I get asked often how I came across this material. So, I will tell this story as my first official blog post.
After the success of my Acetal pick, I decided to research additional plastics that would serve well for a new line of guitar picks. My goal was to locate the stiffest plastic I could find. So obtained several plastic samples. I cut each sample into a guitar pick. When I played the Ultem pick it really stood out amongst the others. It had an amazing clean, clear tone, [...]
