If you thought the usefulness of the guitar pick ended with music then you may be surprised to see some other uses for the Swiss Army Knife of the music world!


The mega-famous fast food restaurant McDonalds recently used our picks in a McFlurry promotion. We were asked to produce a large quantity of picks featuring the design on the right and a small number of "winning" picks in McDonalds yellow. Maybe you will be lucky enough to receive one of these promotional picks on your next visit!


Guitar picks can be an amazing promotional medium as even non guitar players are likely to keep them due to their novelty value. Guitar picks are of course strongly associated with the music industry and have a positive, trendy image. Using them as a promotional tool reflects this image on to your business.

This is a digital eye retinopathy trainer from Adam Rouilly. A very fancy training device that gives the user hands on experience of examining the eye and acquiring skill's such as use of an ophthalmoscope.

From the preface to the book 'Picks!' by Will Hoover: "Picks. Funny little things. Nobody takes them seriously-confined to the musical periphery as picks are. Unnoticed. Humble. Overshadowed by the performer and instrument. Residual servants that go about their task without fanfare, never to be included in a bow or curtain call. Ready to serve without notice, day or night. Asking nothing, loyal as old dog tray. Unnoticed. But not altogether unloved."
