I pretty much suck at Photoshop, so in PowerPoint, believe it or not, this is the design I've come up with for a custom chip.

Thoughts welcome.

The mold I'm looking at is the ASM "H" mold. (same makes of Scooter's chips)


The simple design I dreamed up was something like this:

Agreed with Hags on the $25K denom. Unless you are planning to host a 100+ person tourney, it is not needed.

Don't think Vegas or AC got $25K cash chips.

Chips look good. I would maybe put 2 edge spot colors instead of 1. Also, go with Chipco or Paulson.

I actually believe that the Bellagio and Wynn both have 25K chips. My feeling on it is that I want them for my tourney set, so I did the chip mock up for them. You may not want it for your personal set, but I feel as though if I'm going to go through the cost, setup and effort to do a totally custom set, I'm going to get all that I could ever need in any type game. I want (in larger tourneys) to be able to duplicate what the WSOP does for their higher chip count, but need to stop somewhere, so I chose 25K. I'm also considering doing some 3's, 6's or 10's. (9/18, 6/12 - 12/24 and 10/20)

Getting started, I'll get set up with 1's though 1000's, much like my JB set now and add / expand on it when time / expenses allow.

As chipcos are very nice, I will not go with them as I want a clay chip, rather than a ceramic chip. I also don't care how chipcos wear the white outer ring on them after a fair amount of play. ASM is who I will likely go with. They have the mold I want and I've seen many other custom chips they have done which all turned out very very nice. Their prices are also very reasonable for a custom chip.

I wouldn't waste money on $3 chips. Definitely forget about $6 chips. Don't need $10 chips either. Since $9-$18, $12-$24, and$10-$20 are so close in range you could just deal $10/$20.

Most casinos use 2 chips/4 chips, 3 chips/6 chips and 4 chips/8 chips for their limit hold em games (e.g. both $9/$18 and $12/$24 will use $3 chips and $10/$20 will use $5 chips).

As far as $25K chips, whatever makes you happy.

I myself prefer clay-y type of chips.
