Hi everyone....I am still working on getting the pick punch to market in early 2009.......updates on the Pick Punch can be found at <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.pickpunch.com">www.pickpunch.com</a>...anyway everyone take care<br/>
diy much better than punch
very true, but you could probably start a school/ebay business with the punch.
I have been making these things from credit cards, photo id cards, gift cards, felt, celluloid sheeting, delrin, oddball plastics for years by hand and with punches and there is no way you can make a pick better by cutting it out. You might make one nearly good or close to it but trust me when I say "it just aint so' Really when you think about it the punch is diy. its just a tool
I'm definitely going to be picking one of these up as soon as they're up for sale.
Hi,<br/>If anyone cares I own the patent for punching out picks using a handheld punch. I plan to have this out hopefully in the next year. Here is another thread regarding this idea here on Instructables.......... Email wvluhmann@aol.com<br/><br/><a href="http://www.instructables.com/id/Credit-Card-Guitar-Picks/?comments=all#CQEUXWRFE3IPW3Z">http://www.instructables.com/id/Credit-Card-Guitar-Picks/?comments=all#CQEUXWRFE3IPW3Z</a><br/>
Hi, I changed my email to the following.... vonluhmann@yahoo.com
Congrats! This is a great idea! I use hand held punches all the time for mixed media art. I got some guitar picks to make jewelry out of but if I had your punch I could make them myself without even having to cut them out! I hope you get it on the market soon, but I know these things can take time. Good luck with it!
Does anyone have an idea on how to get paint to stick to one of these? My idea is paint then a thin layer of transparent glue. Any ideas?
You can get paint for plastic at a craft store like Michael's or Hobby Lobby. It comes in small plastic bottles for under $2. a bottle. Sometimes they have a package with 6 colors in small pots on a strip for just a few dollars. You can also use regular acrylic paint if you prime them first with gesso. Once painted you can decorate them further with designs, words, etc. with Sharpies.
Oh, I got a cool idea. Make them out of used XBOX LIVE subscription cards.
yeah that too i saw people on youtube do that
So - what <em>is</em> the wrong way?<br/>
That's what I was wondering...
Apparently, using a nail file, instead of a coarse file + carpet.<br/><br/>... because, well, that's just plain <em>wrong</em>...<br/><br/><a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.instructables.com/id/make-your-own-guitar-picks-from-gift-or-credit-car/?ALLSTEPS">make your own guitar picks from gift or credit cards!</a><br/><br/><a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.instructables.com/id/Credit-Card-Guitar-Picks/?ALLSTEPS">Credit Card Guitar Picks</a><br/><br/>:-P<br/>
I feel so proud.
like not using the filer polish etc many things
Yeah, I dont know what you mean by "the right way." The others look way better, yours still has rough edges.
You're polishing that on your carpet? lol
Is there really a right or wrong way? If it works for you, who's to say it's wrong?
And what makes this any better than any other credit card pick?
Cool! My brother and I do this all the time whenever we need some. We like doing it to cool credit cards, or just cards like that, then it looks really awesome because we pick a certain part on it. Awesome Instructable!
