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!
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.

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 really pop! To order your own custom picks, visit www.claytoncustom.com

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.

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 shown here were made on our acetal material, with a beautiful flower graphic, and simply the date as a perfect reminder for the guests of the special day spent with the couple.
