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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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 email@example.com or call us at 1-877-752-9484.
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 show off this awesome owl pick design ordered by one of our customers! The owl was printed on our green delrin pick material.

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.

We just recently endorsed the guitarists in the band StoneBaby! Here is a little bit about the band: With the inception of the band came an almost magical approach to writing and developing original music between the original members whose friendship spanned better than a decade. Scott Philipp, a singer /songwriter immersed in the Philadelphia music scene, was lead to push himself and focus on his powerful vocals. Scott creates tasteful melodies and lyrics over his forever simple, yet developing guitar playing skills. As he introduces ideas he and Tony Schiavo (Drums), always collaborate on the arrangement of the music to create a stylized rhythm that is unique to each song. Until recently, the band had cravings for a guitar player who would add simple dynamics and depth to the songs. With the revolving guitar position, the band made a commitment to head into the studio and record a three song EP to develop a style that would pinpoint the lead guitar sound that they really needed. Producer Drew Raison of Big Sky Audio, took the reins and seasoned the music to what is now the true sound of StoneBaby. The new recording, which has a commercial rock appeal, is set to capture all age listeners. As the band continues to evolve with new music… and newly added guitar and bass players, Bobby Leonhardt and Jason Shainline the EP is certain to prove to be a canvas for the band to expand its musical creativity and listening audience.
