I’ve been working on something for quite a while now. Picking away when possible after falling in love with an idea. I’ve been in talks with a producer already about pricing and am trying to nail down some particulars. For now there are no details I care to share, except to say they will be on ceramics.

I’m just curious about the greater preference:

A) 39mm and 43mm for the large denoms.

B) all 39mm

C) all 43mm

D) don’t care. Depends on the overall design.

My players have always liked having a bigger chip for the higher denom. It's one of the few things they've ever actually noticed or commented on about chips.
My personal opinion is that it's more impressive more fun, and the only downside is that storage can be a little more challenging. But I wouldn't let that hold me back.

Agreed, option a is the way to go. 43 mm for 500s and above gives the authentic casino feel. However for storage purposes it is A pain in the butt.

I really like the idea of larger chips for the higher denoms: for a .25/.50 game, $20 and higher, for T25 base, T5000 and higher.

Over time my preferences have changed. I use to be ok with a mix of smaller (39mm) chips for smaller denoms with larger (43mm) chips for the higher denoms, but now if I've got any 43mm chips I want them all to be 43mm, especailly for a tournament set. For a cash set I'm still ok with like one larger chip for the highest denom (value chip).

Several of my players flipped over plaques as tourney high denoms. It was awesome to see non-chippers get excited for something like this.

Same.

My friends/players prefer Milanos to some of my clay sets (lol normal non chipper people) and never notice matching dealer buttons but the first night a made the $20 matsui plaques the actual bounty “chip” in their stack they flipped their s**t, absolutely loved it.

Interested to see what these are going to look like. I voted D, but good with whatever the majority want.

I'm very surprised as well. I had too many questions to commit to mixing sizes, even though I also now prefer the same size chip throughout a cash set.
I could see a tournament set being interesting with increasing sizes for increasing denoms, ala WSOP, but again I have questions.

For instance, if you make tournament denominations, at what point will the chip go from being a 39mm to a 43mm? People run different base tournaments, which could affect what is perceived as the "small" chip in the set/game (T5, T25, T100, even high roller T1ks).
