Grips with Graphics

These grips feature full-color, full-coverage images! Select a stock graphic, or submit your own for a custom set of grips! The grips are available for: 1911's, Sig P938 and Ruger Revolvers.

The grips are molded using a high strength, engineered polymer that provides toughness and durability.  They are decorated with a patented method that provides one of the most permanent image results available today.  Unlike other decorated grips, the images on these grips are resistant to salt, oil, solvent, water, impact and abrasion.  In fact, you would have to scratch through more than 2 mils of material to scratch through the image! 

For 1911's

Compatible with ambidextrous safety.  All sizes except compact have a smooth texture. Compact size has slightly textured surface. 

Will fit: Standard, full-size 1911's and clones - Compact 1911 (unfortunately, the grips will NOT fit Springfield EMP) - Bobtail 1911 - Ruger 22/45 or MKIII - Taurus PT1911 (Please note that the stock Taurus PT1911 screw heads will not countersink into these grips.  To have flush, countersunk screws you will need to purchase standard 1911 grip screws, which can be found online or at your local gun shop.)

What size grips do you need? If your grip height is 5.25" (height 90 degrees to barrel center), you have a full-size grip frame. Less than that is a compact.  Full-size 1911 will have a screw hole spacing (center-to-center) of approximately 3 1/16”.  The same spacing on the compact model 1911 will be about 2 11/16”.

Custom Grips FAQ

Custom Grips - What You Need to Know

There's a lot we can do! But we do not create artwork from scratch. We can only work with your finished artwork or supplied images. 

Finding a workable image:

  • The grips are tall and narrow. The wider your image, the smaller it will have to be to fit. The narrower or taller your image, the better it will fit.
  • The higher the resolution of the image, the better the finished product will look. 
  • If there are lots of fine lines and small details in your image, it is likely we will lose some of this detail during the process. 
  • Keep in mind that your digital images will be much sharper than the grips will be. The grip printing process results in an image that has a "tattoo" effect - colors are more muted and edges are softer. The image photos uploaded on this page will give you a good idea of the finished result. 
  • You can use different images on each grip, the 2 sides do not have to be the same. 

Image Background:

If your image has a special background color or design that you want to keep, it helps us to have as much background as possible, so that we can extend it all the way to the edge of the grips. If your image is cropped too close, this could present an issue. The more background we have, the better. It's not as critical with solid black or white backgrounds, but it is with other colors or patterns. 

Adding Text:

  • You can add any text you wish to a custom order. Just keep it short, to allow for best spacing, placement and font sizing.
  • Find a font you like. We cannot find a font for you, there are just too many options. A good resource is www.1001freefonts.com. All we need is the font name, or a sample of your desired text typed up in that font. 
  • Avoid skinny fonts with thin lines - these tend to get "swallowed" by the background.

Decide on a background (if there isn't one in your image):

  • You can select a solid color background. We have a small selection of basic solid backgrounds.  
  • Alternatively, provide us with a color swatch or Pantone color number. 
  • You can send a patterned swatch as well - pretty much any image can be used as a background. 

Send us your images by email - once we determine what your images, text and background will be, you can proceed with placing your order. Due to the time required to create them, we do not provide mock-ups/proofs until after your order is received. 

Order Process: 

  • Submit your images, desired text and background selection by email - let's be sure it will all work.
  • Place your order. Scroll to the bottom of the list of design in the drop-down list to find "custom".
  • A mock-up will be created and emailed to you within a day or two of placing your order. At that time, you can make any changes or cancel for a refund.
  • If the mock-up is approved, it takes up to 10 business days to make the grips.
  • A custom set of grips costs $112.95. Subsequent, identical sets cost $64.95.

Product Reviews

  1. Bought another pair of 1911 grips 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th Mar 2015

    I just finished trying to return a product from ebay. Not a good experience. Not putting them down! I have had excellent experiences with Gun Goddess. I particularly appreciate the personal help I receive and the products so far are outstanding. I plan on buying several more sets of grips in the near future. Strongly recommend Gun Goddess and Athena.

  4. Custom grips making my friends jealous 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Jan 2015

    I ordered two sets of custom grips and they have met all expectations. The compact set fit perfectly and the full size set will need some shaving to fit but that was expected. I have a few friends that will be putting an order in after seeing my grips. Communication during the whole process was excellent and everything was as promised. I couldn't be happier with my purchase.


  5. Great experience! 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 22nd Dec 2014

    I ordered some custom grips for my father, who is retired military. It was my first time ordering something in this way. The communication was great from the first email which made the process easy and enjoyable! They were patient with me while I went back and forth between them and my father. The product was great and my father loved it! Craig Partridge

  7. Top Notch service & product 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 1st Dec 2014

    Recently ordered some custom graphic designs for a full size 1911 grips. It all went almost too well and came out perfect. Fast service, quality product and great communication with Athena. That my friends is how you treat customers and get return orders. Thanks a lot Athena and continued success.


  8. Great product, awesome turnaround 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th Nov 2014

    Got an Armscor 1911 on the cheap and decided to use the savings on some custom grips. Had a design floating in my mind, so I reached out to a couple of companies via email. Ended up deciding on GunGoddess due to the quick response times from Athena every step of the way. Final product fits pretty well and looked great. If open carry passes where I am, I would definitely be inclined to do so (with a good retention holster and while maintaining situational awareness, of course) because pretty artworks deserve to be shown to people.

    Turnaround time was good, had prompt responses from Athena during the design process. Once I had finalized the design on my end, it was 5 business days (factor in that I also requested they try to fiddle around with the image and touch it up some) to get a mock-up. Once I gave the go-ahead on the mock-up, it took about 3 days for the grips to be produced and shipped to me. Ahead of schedule, in fact, so that's always a plus. In addition, I can confirm after cleanings that they are, in fact, resistant to solvent.


  9. American Spirit grips with addition of lettering. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 15th Oct 2014

    I recently discovered this website and the American Spirit 45 ACP grips are the most incredible I've seen. I wanted to add an additional tribute to 9/11. They did so for a very reasonable fee and I am very pleased. I emailed them several times with questions and they always responded timely. Athena even emailed me after hours. The end product was perfect. I highly recommend Gun Goddess for your needs.


  10. great service, great work 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Oct 2014

    I had a custom design put on 1911 grips. It was done quickly, shipped promptly, and the work on the design was perfect. I could not be happier.


  11. very nice product 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 22nd Aug 2013

    A few months back I contacted Athena about some tribute grips (to my father who passed away this year),Let me say that Athena was very understanding and took my story to heart.She made every attempt to make sure this would be special set to commemorate my dad,she went out her way on several occasions through this process to make sure that the final product would turn out and if i did not like them she would cancel it outright.This was very arduous in that it took several emails back and forth to get it right.She finally got her team on track with what i was looking for and the end result was outstanding!!!My only complaint is not with the work or process but the grip manufacturer,They state that these are ambi safety grips of which they weren't.I had to dremel a fade away cut in order for the safety to clear the grip.But overall very impressed


  12. Better than expected 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Aug 2013

    Product was flawless and the image came out better than expected. I will refer everyone to these grips and look to purchase more in the future. Thank you.

  17. I Love My New Grips 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st Sep 2012

    I ordered the punisher grips for my Sig 1911, plus 3 other grips for my family members. The turn around time was approximately 2 weeks. The grips fit my 1911 with no problem. I have no problems with the way the grips feel when shooting.


  18. Great 1911 Grips! 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 7th Sep 2012

    I asked for a custom set of grips.... urban digital with my college logo (VMI) included. Athena was quick to respond and was able to get the crew to do a set up for me. Service was excellent, great communication and rapid fabrication. I got my grips in about a week.
    No fit issues at all and the grips look great on my 1911's!
    Thanks Athena!


  19. Custom College Logo 1911 Grips 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 14th Aug 2012

    I wanted a pair of grips for my 1911A1 that had my college logo on it.
    I was unable to find anything good on the internet, so I contacted the Gun Goddess and told her what I wanted. It took a week or so to get the correct graphic, but the results were fantastic. The grips were produced and shipped in a week. They fit perfectly out of the box. They are made of a hard material which holds up far better than wood. This is a top shelf product for the money.
