If you're looking for OLD-SCHOOL guitar picks - look no further.

Since 2007, EGOpicks has specialized in creating these foil-printed classics for customers all over the world. We've probably done more of this type of custom pick than any of our competitors, and we have truly perfected the craft.

Our original OLD-SCHOOL picks are hand-stamped (Yes ... one by one) using a hot-foil imprinting process that produces stunning custom picks. Old-school picks are more time consuming and labor-intensive than other printing methods – but the results are definitely worth the wait.

OLD SCHOOL picks are best for customers that have simple, single-color artwork, but want their custom picks to stand out with metallic and holographic foil print colors.

How does it work?

For hot-foil printed picks, in order to get your logo or design layout on to a pick, the image must first be made into a custom die (like a rubber stamp, but made of metal).

Once your custom die is made, we then hand-stamp your logo onto your picks with the foil color of your choice.

Die Costs -$15 Each

A re-usable custom die must be made for each unique design or layout

Example: die charges for double-side picks with a different layout on each side would be $30. Your custom dies are re-useable for future orders. Customer dies are kept on file at EGOpicks until they have gone un-used for 2 years

Artwork


Send us your original artwork...

  • Whenever possible, please send your artwork in black and white only (no shadows or shading). If you need help transforming your single-color artwork to black and white, upload it and we’ll see if we can help.
  • File types: We can usually work well with the following types of files: .cdr, .jpg, .bmp, .eps, .psd, .png, or .ai. All artwork and photos should be a minimum of 300 dpi, and at least 4-5 inches square.
  • Text: Please convert all text to outlines or curves, and/or send us the font files that you used if available.
  • Test it: Try to keep designs simple, and text as large as possible. It's a great idea to try shrinking your artwork down to one inch wide, and print it out on your home printer. Does it look good? Can you tell what it is? Can you read the text?
  • Don't worry: We will advise you of any concerns we may have with your artwork when we send you your digital mockups.

... Or we can help create basic designs

  • EGOpicks is happy to provide basic design services free of charge.
  • You will be able to tell us your general ideas of what you’d like on your picks in the Old School order/enquiry form..
  • Find Fonts: If you want text incorporated into your design ... please find 2 fonts that you like at www.dafont.com. On the dafont website, you can type in your desired text near the top of the page, and preview what it will look like in each font as you browse. Tell us the names of the 2-3 fonts that you like, and we will do some digital mockups with the fonts that will work best for the old-school printing process.
  • Get Inspired: Be sure to visit our EGOpicks Gallery or our Instagram page to see what we’ve done for others, and get some inspiration.
  • Go Double-Sided: We have over 80 EGOpicks Images that we can print on one side of your picks. Just choose your favorite! OR ... maybe send us a photo of your signature on a plain white background, and we’ll make you your own ‘Signature Picks’!

KEEP IT SIMPLE. Remember that a guitar pick is only 1 inch wide. What might look amazing on something as large as a t-shirt, might not work so well for a guitar pick.
