Hi there,

I have some chips from Oaks Card Club, two different variations both with the same problem. Having quite a rough time with cutting them and shuffling because sometimes a chip will suction/stick to the one beneath it or on top of it. Additionally, when I put chips on top of each other, they sometimes slide for no reason even if placed on top gently.

I have cleaned all chips in soapy water and rubbed them down with dry towel, leaving to finish air drying for three days. This has not helped.

Is there another way to address this?

Thanks all and this is my first post, glad to be here! Advice welcome.

What does the suction come from? I have a few sanding threads pulled up and might try that midweek next week

Yes, definitely see this on some lines of Bud Jones chips.

I'm pretty sure it has to do with the deformity of the plastic and the depth of the recess: the more of both you have the higher risk of getting the suction effect. On a set of neatly stacked chips, quick downward pressure pushes out the air from between the chip, creating a tiny bit of a vacuum in the middle where the recesses meet.

BJS2 doesn't seem to have this effect. I would not expect to see it in any plastic chip (high end or not) that has a rigid body.

Yep, these look similar to Bud Jones chips after doing some research. Most likely them.

Spot on. Sad to hear there might not be a fix.
