Is there anyone who knows how you can create good guitar picks? Maybe by means of a website or a tool like a Pick Punch?

Scissors and old credit cards work too unless you have to use a really heavy pick like I do.

Unless you’re practicing eight hours a day with soft picks you probably don’t go through them fast enough to justify doing it yourself. 72 packs of Tortex picks are only $17 on Amazon.

I used to take gift cards that I used up and made picks out of those when I was younger.


What kind of template did you use? or just an original pick?

The main problem with making a pick this way is the edges are too sharp and create unwanted noise. They also grab the string all weird.
