Hi all,

According to the history thread here, the color for the 2007 WSOP 5000 chip is listed as Blaze Orange. In some pictures, I've seen it look more of a standard orange, and in other pictures, more of the blaze orange. Were they changed at all from year to year?

I have a set of Cards mold chips coming based off of Kid Eastwoods great artwork here:

So... I am definitely going to order more chips to add to what I already ordered, so I'm trying to figure out whether to change to the redder orange. I love this color: Thoughts?

So Paulson blaze orange is Paulson blaze orange, right? No variation ever?
Correct. It doesn't photograph well, so pics can vary a lot depending on equipment and lighting. Dirty chips can look different, too.

It is basically impossible to duplicate most day-glo colors (including Paulson Blaze Orange) with a six-color printer. You can get close, but never exact. I have a similar issue with creating Paulson Salmon colored cards mold printed chip. You can sometimes get close, but they will never have the eye-burning properties of the real thing.

I'd advise going with a color you really like, so long as it's close to the original.
