Clayton fans have you tried our new hot stamp foil picks? Just below to the right you’ll notice I have shared some of the styles people have come up with recently. What makes the picks unique is the foil provides a shiny look that catches the eye. There are many colors to choose from for the picks. For the foil color options you may choose our popular silver, gold, red, or purple foil. The hot stamp foil picks are definitely a popular item because of the sleek looking material and bright foil. The hot stamp foil picks take generally 4-6 weeks to produce, but when finished you’ll see the amazing quality! If you would like to learn more about our custom picks give us a call at 877.752.9484
Well, March is just around the corner and we have already started noticing the designs that are indicating the coming of St. Patrick’s Day. We already love the combination of green and black, so why not create some custom shamrock guitar picks to help celebrate the occasion? We offer green delrin picks in .8 mm gauge, which are already a popular choice for custom picks year-round. We also offer green colored pearl picks, in varying shades depending on your taste. Only black designs can be printed on these picks, so if you are looking to create a green design, we recommend white delrin or acetal picks. So visit our website at www.claytoncustom.com and try your luck at designing a St. Patty’s Day Pick!
Eric Church is one of our endorsed artists and we just wanted to let you know he is one of country’s hardest working artists. We could say working a little bit too hard after last fall. While performing in New York, he was stomping so hard on stage that he hurt his ankle. He still finished the show and is ready to set the stage for his 2010 tour with our Clayton custom picks. Here are the picks you might get at one of his shows if you’re lucky. He’s already sold out for this Thursday’s show at the Wildhorse Saloon in Nashville. Church’s picks are the white pearl rounded triangle with the gauge at 1mm. The white delrin 1mm standard pick is another choice for Church. He has a top 10 hit with his song “Love Your Love the Most,”
one of his songs on his new Carolina album. Another big hit on the album is “Hell On the Heart.” Eric is a rising star that we are excited to follow this year. We look forward to supporting Eric Church during his 2010 tour.

We are excited to announce the mention of Steve Clayton, Inc. in the April 2010 edition Guitar Player magazine for our support of Guitars Not Guns. This organization was founded 8 years ago, and it has been established in order to reduce violence in the streets and in schools by providing music programs for teenagers who are considered “at risk.” We are really enthusiastic about the endeavors of Guitars Not Guns, and we are happy to contribute to their efforts by donating custom picks and guitar accessories. Guitars Not Guns is focused on replacing the self-destructive behaviors of substance abuse, crimes, and gangs with a positive alternative: learning to play the guitar! We are happy to know that our guitar picks can contribute to such an admirable organization!

One of the pick materials that we use here at Steve Clayton is called Ultem, and it is often overlooked when designing custom picks. While the Ultem picks are slightly more limited in the area of design because they can only support three different colors, they are appreciated for their durability and strong playing quality. When designing Ultem picks, users of our custom site may submit any design that contains black, brown, and/or red colors. These three colors can make for an appealing combination against the light tan color of the picks. The result is a classic, sometimes rustic appearance. We have received feedback from many people who say that they are highly satisfied with these picks, both for their usability and long-lasting designs. The Artisan Guitar pick shown here is a perfect example of a strong design for the Ultem picks because of the rich brown color and the smooth, distinct lines. These picks are a great choice for advertising, and graphics always look professional on the semi-tranparent material.
We shipped out a whole lot of picks today for York Region Transit, which is a transportation system up in Canada. They are holding a contest that supports their local bands. Which we thought was so cool of them to do within their community. The pick material is a custom blue color to match their logo. We do a lot of custom pick material coloring for our large clients. To learn more about the contest go to their site at: http://www.yorkregiontransit.com/

Congratulations to Ian Severson becoming our new endorsed artist! Severson currently is the guitarist for the band Future Leaders of the World. In 2004 the band was formed in Buffalo, New York recording a demo in Los Angeles. They signed with Epic Records for their full release of LVL IV featuring the hit “Let Me Out.” Future Leaders of the World has their sound comparable to the Nirvana grunge.
Severson has also played as guitarist for the band Gingerjake. He was given the name as “shrediculous” while playing with Gingerjake in 2003. The band recorded with producer Cameron Webb who also produced Tenacious D. “Karats” was a big hit getting lots of airplay on the Mpls station 93x.
