OLD-SCHOOL Foil-Printed Picks

Since 2007, EGOpicks has specialized in creating these foil-printed classics for customers all over the world.

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.

First-time orders of Old-school picks can take anywhere from 3-6 weeks. Re-orders then take about a week for us to get them done and into the mail.

Old-school picks are best for customers that have simple, single-color artwork and want their custom picks to shine with metallic foil printing.


Choose From:

  • 16 Stunning Metallic foil colors that you won’t find anywhere else
  • 16 Celluloid pick colors and Glow-in-the-dark picks.
  • Several popular pick gauges that you can mix and match

Custom Die

Hot Foil Picks

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 – $20 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 design on each side would require 2 dies to be made ($40).
Your custom dies are kept on file at EGOpicks, and are re-usable for future orders.

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 prefer to work with editable graphics files such as ai, cdr or pdf. We can usually figure out how to work with other file formats such as eps, bmp, png and jpeg as long as they are high resolution, but this may limit what we can do with them.
  • 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, and show you ideas that may work better.

… 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.

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.
