Dia De Los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, is a holiday celebrated mainly in the Mexican culture, but other cultures as well, to honor the lives of friends and family members who have passed away. This holiday spans from October 31st, when many people also celebrate Halloween, through November 2nd. Even though it is nowhere near that time of year right now, I wanted to feature these awesome Dia De Los Muertos custom guitar picks that were created and ordered by a Clayton Customer. I just love the variety of color, the eye-catching design, and how the white pearl [...]
Over the years, Clayton, USA has added more and more pick options to our custom guitar pick line. I have realized that, currently, we offer five different white guitar pick options for custom printing, and some of you may be wondering which white pick material will be best for you?
Here is a quick guide to help you out!
1. White Delrin Picks: These are basic, bright white picks, similar to tortex material. They have a semi-gloss finish. They work best with dark, bright, and bold colors for custom designs. Black print is the best for this material.
2. Acetal [...]
I chose these custom picks to feature on our blog because the design immediately caught my eye. With popularity rising for mythical movies, tv shows, art, etc., custom picks that have a “Two Dragons” logo on them fit right in with today’s artistic styling. I also like how the background art, which shows a ship on the sea, works so well on the white pearl material. The different shades in the pearl definitely have the oceanic feel, as if the waves are actually moving when they catch the light. Basically just wonderful artwork, with the perfect pick material chosen to [...]
I just had to do a post on these awesome foxy picks! Foxes happen to be one of my favorite animals, so I fell in love with this design. Our customer submitted a beautiful full color fox photo to have printed on our white pearl picks. Sometimes photos are not the best for white pearl material because of the marbleized quality, but in this case it was the perfect choice. The marbleized material adds a very artistic element to the image; almost as if it is a watercolor painting. It also creates a reflective light quality that makes the colors [...]
One of our Clayton Customers is ready to wail on the guitar with these custom whale guitar picks! Okay, I admit that I chose these to post on our blog because I thought they were cute, but the design also happened to turn out really well! While we are able to do pretty detailed custom designs, it is often the more simplistic art, with bold colors and large text, that really turn out the best. These picks were made on our white delrin pick material, which makes the bright blue color [...]
This week, we wanted to showcase these awesome acetal custom picks with a design created by one of our new endorsed artists! This is a two-sided design that has an incredible amount of detail, but it came out really well on our acetal pick material. As you can see, the art has a black background, and there is a border around it that gives it a clean look on the white color of the picks. There is also a lot of color on top of the black background that makes the art interesting; these picks are definitely eye-catchers!
Here are some cool new custom guitar picks ordered by one of our customers! :
These picks were made on our classic Ultem material. Ultem picks are known for best resembling the sound quality of a true tortoiseshell pick without being actually made from tortoiseshell. They are light tan/gold in color, and they work great with brown and black designs like the one shown. The shape of these picks is rounded triangle, which is a popular choice amongst bassists. To [...]
Every once in a while we like to showcase some custom wedding guitar picks that are ordered by our customers. Wedding picks are becoming more and more popular as a wedding item, so we get to see a lot of different types of designs! Custom guitar picks are great as a wedding item because they are small and make the perfect keepsake (especially if you have a lot of musicians at your wedding!) They can represent a couple’s love for music and they can be customized in a variety of ways, including dates, colors, photos, graphics, quotes, etc. The picks [...]
