GUITAR PICK MAKING IS EASY AND YOU CAN MAKE THE R-E-A-L DEAL HERE OR MAKE THEM FROM ANYTHING LAYING AROUND THE HOUSE FOREVER FOR NOTHING.
Make guitar picks from just about anything including credit cards, photo id cards, gift cards, misc plastic, celluloid, delrin, vinyl, etc,etc,etc...When our punches come in around March-April of 2009 this website will be converted over for sales of punches, stock guitar pick materials like celluloid, delrin, vinyl, etc. We will be eventually selling different levels of pick making from the novice for around $25.00.....to more demanding qtys for bands, promotions, non-profits, etc.
We are starting with just punches and pick materials but..... If you buy from mass produced companies like Fender or the other companies that make non-custom celluloids (which I consider to be the best picks out there) then why buy a logo seriously just make your own. I will sell the celluloid sheets (and you can make enough for everyone you know and still be able to make backups from oddball plastics and cards). Just so you know there are hundreds of types of celluloid out there that guitar pick manufacturers don't carry...I will have stuff you have never seen before and nobody else will have anywhere and they are simply amazingly beautiful! See below for more on celluloid}
This is what we plan to sell eventually....
Pick Punches (single handheld)
Pick Punch presses
More Pick and Luthier materials like celluloid, delrin, vinyl, etc.
Small edge finishing techniques for small qtys like just simply lightly sanding the edges with fine sandpaper and for larger qtys we will have Tumblers.
Printing methods such as hot foil for small qtys like hot foil pens and simple templates (or make your own from craft supply templates with foil pens, pen templates, etcand larger qtys methods like hot foil presses with custom plates, flat-bed printers, and pad printing.
We will be a one stop shop for guitar pick making and we will start at the entry level and move up...
Here at Pick Punch we think that guitar pick making as a craft is fun, inexpensive and easy to do and you can't tell the difference between these and many custom printed or mass produced picks with some finishing of the edges.
There is a time and a place for buying mass produced picks and custom printed picks because they do and have offered great services for years......
but from one sheet of beautiful celluloid you can make literally 1000s of perfectly shaped picks. The logo if you want one is tricky but we have devised several methods that you can print super cheap your own with awesome, repeatable, durable results. Come back and check with us here soon as our products become available and as we grow this website.
*Celluloid (although flammable under certain conditions) is considered to be the KING of plastics due to the complicated methods that are required to make it. The process of making celluloid is a very VERY difficult and complicated art. This stuff if simply beautiful. They use it to finish off many expensive musical instruments like accordians and guitars. Simply put celluloid is more expensive than just about any material you can put on something that is one reason why it is used for small things like picks (the other reason is that celluloid can't be beat for guitar playing it is stiff, beautiful, and durable, expensive, and the most widely used guitar pick material in the world.
