Punching through millimeter-thick plastic requires a great deal of force. The heavy-duty Pick Punch packs a steel cutting head, dual spring action, and all-metal construction (save for a protective plastic base to avoid scratching tabletops).

These features mean the Pick Punch will last for many years and for thousands of guitar picks.

Your house is teeming with potential guitar picks

Right now, you've got hundreds of guitar picks in your house. However, you cannot reveal them without the Pick Punch.

Let's start with the standard fare. You won't be hard-pressed to find expired credit cards, gift cards, driver's licenses, gym membership cards, loyalty cards, or old hotel key cards in your wallet or in your junk drawer.

Next, get creative, and hit the pantry for plastic food tops - from baby formula to peanut butter, you'll find guitar picks!

And you know that annoying plastic blister packaging that can be so difficult to remove from products (unless, of course, you have the OpenIt!)?  It makes for excellent guitar picks, too.

Turn many plastic materials around the house into guitar picks.
A quick scan through the junk drawer and the pantry can easily result in guitar pick gold.

Flip it over to align the perfect punch

The open bottom of the Pick Punch allows you to produce the precise design you want from your "donor material". Simply flip over the punch, align your design, and press. Voila! The perfect DIY guitar pick.

Easily see your pick pre-punch by flipping it over.

Indulge your crafty side and make custom picks!

You can also create one-of-a-kind guitar picks with the Pick Punch and a bit of creativity.

The photo pick below was created with some leftover plastic packaging from a disposable razor, a photo, and a bit of super glue. We simply sandwiched the photo between two punches of the clear plastic packaging.

We used this same technique to create the other two custom guitar picks in the photo below, using a cut-out from the newspaper comics section for one and a Vat19 business card for the other.
