How to Put Your Own Words on a Guitar Pick

by Steven French

If you have been playing guitar for a while, you have probably seen and used a large number of guitar picks. Some of these picks may have had custom text or graphics printed on them, such as the name of a music store.

The picks can then be delivered directly to your home.
