I have released detailed instructions for the homemade guitar pick project. It took some refining, but I believe I have found a reasonable method for creating promotional guitar picks from multiple layers of laminating sheets. It takes a little time and patience, but the notion that one can produce custom guitar picks at home, on a sizable scale, is pretty cool.
This was a interesting, yet challenging project to create—I hope you enjoy the process and are happy with the resulting product. Please feel free to post your custom picks here; I’ll be interested to see your creative designs.

Over the past few months, I’ve been
trying to get the word out about this site and recently entertained the idea of making homemade, promotional guitar picks to distribute. I believe I have stumbled upon a reasonable process and wanted to share it with you.
The process entails printing 56 pick-sized designs on a sheet of transparency film and then laminating it. After that, four laminating pouches are cut into eight separate sheets and are then laminated to the back of the primary sheet one at a time. Finally, the picks are harvested with a Pick Punch and finished with 600 grit sandpaper.
This project takes a little effort, but the final product is a very excellent, medium-gauge pick. Detailed instructions are in the works—in the meantime, have a look at the attached images.
