Hi guys.

I'm looking to get hold of some custom guitar picks for my band, but that would be ridiculously expensive... and I'm broke.

Therefore, I figured I'd get myself some blank picks and write the name of the band on them with a pen (which I belive is english for "sharpie")

Does anyone know where I can get a batch of blank guitar picks at a (very) low price?

50 pence for a shitty little piece of plastic is a ****ing rip off. 10 pence would be awesome.

Any insight and help appreciated.

I got no idea dude, have you googled Custom Picks? I remember there was a website where you could make your own, email it to the people and they'd make them for you.

uh, the guitar store?? just a thought

Right! I have myself a nice little sampler arriving (15 for £2 is pretty ****in' decent! haha)

And if they're half decent I will nab some!

Surely you can find a better way to make them than just writing your band name on them? there must be some way to "stamp" what you want onto blank picks, like the picks you get in a store.

I never got to go on a school trip to a pick factory, but I think it involves some kind of hot iron, a technology surpassing the means to do oneself.

The writing comes right off in pen, but said picks are only designed to be a momento for fans.
