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!
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 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.

Hey Clayton Fans! Check out these awesome picks!
These really stood out to me because I have, as most people have, seen the Pink Floyd logo many many times, but I have never seen it so amp-ed up! I love how this customer took the classic logo and gave it a really modern detailed look for the cover band logo. The colors are amazing, and this graphic turned out super well on our acetal guitar pick material! So here’s my challenge to all you cover bands out there; take the logo of the band you are covering, and give it the Floyd Factor make-over! To start creating, visit www.claytoncustom.com today!
Check out these awesome custom picks made for the band Darby O’Gill and the Little People. The band has been performing Traditional Irish, Celtic punk and other various genres in the Las Vegas Pub scene for close to 11 years. Their goal is to make their audience’s drinking experience the best time they can barely remember To find out more about them, you can visit their website at www.darbyogillband.com, and they are also on facebook, twitter and myspace.
This pick design first caught my eye because of the name…same as the Disney film from 1959 starring Sean Connery. I think it is a clever name for a band that plays Irish and Celtic punk music! I also really liked the colorful and traditional look of the design itself, which was printed on our acetal material guitar picks.

Check out these cool picks! We loved the blue Flotsam design that was submitted for custom guitar picks by the band Treading Lemmings. This art was printed on our acetal guitar picks, which work great for graphics that include color backgrounds that cover most of the guitar pick, such as the blue background in this design. We also liked how the fine detail in the creative logo turned out so well, even on small guitar picks!
In March 2013, The Treading Lemmings released “Flotsam”. The EP serves up five delicious new tunes. Much more akin to a fine dining experience than a to trip to the local diner;”Flotsam” provides depth, complexity, sweetness at times, and occasional bitterness for balance. With the typical lyrical finesse of Christopher Quinn, this project was also spiced up by some special guests: Nashville fiddle ace, Kurt Baumer, played on a homage to Keith Moon in “Goodnight Moon,” and inter-continental arrangement help was provided by the Dentists’ (seminal 90s Brit-pop) Bob Collins on “Doing Time On Placid Drive.”

The custom guitar picks were created and ordered by Clayton customer Andy Hunt (aka Ricky), who plays rhythm (Rickenbacker) guitar for The Treading Lemmings. With the release of the new vinyl EP “Flotsam”, he wanted a new promotional pick to toss from stage. He worked with artist Carl Yonder www.carlyonder.com to take his artwork from “Flotsam” and turn it into a guitar pick design using the Clayton custom design tool.

SOLARSET is an all original quartet driven by mixed influences to make way for a completely new style of “rock”. The band was formed in Watertown, Connecticut, in the fall of 2011 with Alan Johnson on lead guitar, Justin Spry on vocals and rhythm guitar, Dan Krhla on bass, and Jason Hoyt on drums. From their poetic lyrics and melodic tones to their hypnotizing solos and percussive ingenuity, SOLARSET is a juggernaut of creativity and originality with a fresh new sound that is beyond classification. They are currently working on their debut album expected for release in summer of 2013. SOLARSET has live music, photos, and videos posted at www.facebook.com/solarset.
The SOLARSET picks were made using our white acetal guitar pick material, which is semi-transparent and works great with photo designs, such as the the awesome solar eclipse photo shown here. To order your own custom picks, visit www.claytoncustom.com!

Danny Lee is an accomplished performer, writer, composer and instructor. With over 40 years of musical background, Danny’s influences are diverse and quite eclectic. His own musical style, though rock-oriented, displays this diversity in his own playing and compositions. Adept on a multitude of instruments, Danny favors the guitar as it satiates his musical style with its rhythmic, percussive, electronic, and dynamic capabilities … enabling him to put his particular and vast musical taste on a palette with all the colors of his choosing. Though still in demand as a performer, Danny has focused his attention on instruction of late, all the while still creating his own unique blend of recordings. Chief among Danny’s influences include artists such as: Joe Satriani, Randy Rhoads, Yngwie Malmsteen, Johann Sebastian Bach, Ludwig van Beethoven, Jimi Hendrix and Jimmy Page just to mention a few. Danny currently resides in Dallas, Texas and still records in his home studio. If you are looking for a hired gun on guitar, or interested in guitar, bass, keyboard or drum lessons you can contact Danny at email@example.com.
Danny’s custom design was printed on our acetal guitar picks. We love the bold look of the silhouette against the warm flame colors. On the back of the picks is a full flame background with Danny’s signature, which also is very eye-catching. For the design, the full bleed print option was utilized…meaning that the design goes all the way to the edge of the picks instead of having a small border around the edge of the art.

“At a Frogs Gone Fishinʼ show, fans are treated to heavy-hitting rock with the Frogʼs signature improvisational twist. In an age of auto-tuned vocals and laptop superstars, itʼs great to find a band who relies on harmonies, strong melody, and dynamic rhythms to keep their fans coming back. On any given night, the Frogs cut across genres and material from their two albums and never, ever, play the same set-list twice. This diversity in song choice and explosive improvisational energy has earned the band enthusiastic and devoted fans from places as far apart as Denver and New Orleans, Chicago and Austin, New York and San Francisco.”
