Dia de Los Muertos Picks
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 [...]
Out to Sea
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 [...]
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 [...]
Rock the Fourth!
Hey Clayton Customers! The team here at Clayton USA wants to wish you a Safe and Rockin’ Fourth of July! We hope you enjoy all the awesome mid-summer concerts and parties that are happening! How perfect that one of our fantastic customers recently created and ordered the picks shown below, which look like they have fireworks on them! I believe it is actually an astrological photo that was used for the design background, but they reminded me enough of fireworks to think of them as Independence Day picks! If this year’s celebrations inspire you to create some explosive designs for [...]
Summer is upon us! For all of those summer camps that are starting up, what better way to advertise than by passing out custom guitar picks with your summer camp logo/website! Guitar picks are more durable and less likely to get thrown away than business cards or fliers. Or, if your camp has already started, custom picks are a great memento or prize to hand out to your campers! The picks shown in this image were made on our white pearl guitar pick material, but we offer a variety of [...]
