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 showcase it. To order your own custom picks, visit www.claytoncustom.com today!
To start shopping for Christmas gifts, especially a customized gift! We do have a holiday shipping schedule on our custom site, but sometimes it can be missed so we thought we would also share it here. Custom Guitar Picks are a great gift not only for that special guitarist in your life but also for business cards, new baby announcements and more. The gift ideas for custom guitar picks are really endless, picks aren’t just for musicians ! Below is our last day to order schedule based on what shipping method you choose. This is for the following pick materials only: Colored Delrin, White Pearl, White Delrin, Acetal, Ultem, Carbonate, Text Only, Eco, Metallics and Colored Pearl. Unfortunately, it is past the cut off date to receive a specialty item by Christmas, those materials are: Glow in the Dark, Black Celluloid, and Hot Stamp Foil. These do take 4-6 weeks to produce so they would likely arrive sometime after the holiday. We also often get asked if your order will be received by the holiday if you are not located in the US. To receive a package internationally by Christmas we recommend ordering FedEx Express shipping ($35.00) which takes 2-3 days and is traceable with insurance included. Also, we would strongly suggest sending an email to email@example.com with your ORDER ID number stating these are for a Christmas gift so we can mark it to go out in time for Christmas delivery (this applies to international orders only, if you order by the dates below and one of the materials listed above you do not need to do anything else to receive by Christmas). If you have more questions regarding Christmas delivery you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 1-877-752-9484.
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 especially vibrant. This customer also chose the full bleed print option, so that the art runs all the way to the very edge of the pick. To order your own custom guitar picks, visit www.claytoncustom.com today!

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 has combined his musical passion with his desire for change to come up with the unique idea of building this special guitar to auction off. In addition, he has gotten the signatures of many celebrities who support his cause, and he will be framing those and auctioning them off as well. He is also currently working on a musical line-up for a benefit concert where he’ll auction off the items and collect the funds to donate to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

Remember that any contribution helps, even something a simple as clicking “Like” on the 65 Rose Guitar facebook page will help to generate recognition for all of the hard work that Justin is doing to benefit others who have suffered from this terrible condition.

We are excited to share that we recently have endorsed Tyler Farr. If you don’t already know who he is, you can check out his music and website here. Tyler Farr was born and raised in the small town of Garden City, Missouri. The singer was first introduced to country music at age 16, when he spent a summer on the road with his stepfather, who played lead guitar for country icon George Jones. Farr grew to love country music, and he decided to make the move to Nashville to pursue a career as an artist. He landed a job working as a bouncer at the legendary Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge for five months until he was able to convince the management to let him sing. For the next few years, he would play the Tootsie’s stage four nights a week, in addition to working security at the door. An avid outdoorsman, Farr found a friend in award-winning songwriter and fellow outdoorsman, Rhett Akins. Rhett had heard some of Farr’s music, and he wanted to work with him. After writing with some of the best songwriters in Nashville, Farr eventually landed a publishing deal with Sony ATV/Monument Publishing, and it was that connection that ultimately helped him land his recording contract on Sony Music Nashville’s BNA Records. In addition to recording and songwriting, Farr has toured extensively with Colt Ford, for whom Tyler wrote the song, “Hey Y’all,” as well as opening for Jerrod Niemann and Lee Brice in early 2011 on The Higher Education Tour. Tyler’s four-song digital album, Camouflage – EP, is available now.
