Soon means within the next year. The colors are not complete yet and artwork is starting. The price will be around $.29 each. Blanks will be available also.

Those are sweet!
The spot on the brown chip would look good on the orange chip. Sort of like the PCF logo. [emoji3]

I would consider getting a bunch on one condition....sharper edges. That was the one reason I didn't get on board with the CPS chips. And I'm glad I didn't (as it turns out for a number of reasons). With the cross-hatching remedied One can only hope the edges turn out more uniform. either slightly rounded or sharp. I use the term slightly rounded over beveled which is sadly more like the end result.

China clays with sharp edges would be the icing on the cake. I'd love to see it happen in the future.

I'll almost certainly be in for a large set. Will we be able to provide custom label art for application in China?

The only chip I'm not so keen on is the pink, because of the spot colors.

(Unless something wonderful happens, and I get a large CPC set, instead.)

Well, Apache has been heard to say:
Since you guys prefer less crosshatching and more square edges I will make sure the factory makes these changes.

Sharp edges would be the bomb. Slightly rounded over beveled all the way, if sharp edges aren't possible.
Next step: Trying to get true inlays instead of labels. ;)

I would probably be interested in buying a large quantity of these as blanks when they become available. With Gear Labels living in the same area as me we can probably come up with some very nice custom chip sets.

I think the proper term for the amount I would buy is a "buttload".

Good thing Gear Labels makes such nice ones. Plus the lower Canadian dollar helps with the budget.

Interesting that so many seem to prefer sharp edges. Slighty rounded edges are much easier to handle and to shuffle. At least that's my experience with my Dunes China Clays, which were one of the first China Clays sets on the market.

I agree with this. Even paulsons and ASM/CPCs get the corners knocked off pretty quickly after you have shuffeld them, and it makes them easier to shuffle. When they are minty sharp, they don't shuffle all that well.

The sharpness of the Dunes and Pharaohs are about as sharp as China can make a chip. I agree they do shuffle better with edges that are not too sharp.

yeah but there's a pretty huge difference between mint CPC/Paulson edges and the edges on the recent tower and spear chips. somewhere in the middle is the sweet spot and i think it's closer to mint edges than to the super-beveled edges of the most recent production run.

Hey Josh. Is there a color palette to work from? I was also wondering if the colors are set in stone. Just thinking it is kind of nice to see colors in edge spots that aren't colors used for base chips. I can see however that using this method keeps costs down. Just wondering..

Will there be a 5 cent chip? There's a lot of sets I've avoided purchasing for cash games because they lack a 5 cent chip. Also if the white chip will be $1 and the blue chip $10, I’d make the blue chip some other value.

Edit: If the orange chip will be $0.25 and the brown $5K, I'd switch those values around. Orange just seems to be a more traditional color for $5K than brown. I actually think the pink would suite the $0.25 best but I understand that having the brown and orange be close in value can cause chip differentiation problems on the table.

The CPS chips were so beveled that they almost looked like extreme casino used right off the bat. That was one of the biggest turn offs for me and aided in my decision to sell them. I'd love to see these be somewhat more sharp edged. Doesn't need to be Paulson/ASM sharp but not CPS bicycle tire round lol

Sadly I don't think you will see the choices you need. Josh will probably run with the norms knowing full well that the chip community will use purchasing blanks and getting custom work done through the available vendors. You do however have a few choices.

1) buy the chips and values you want and use an exacto to RnR the labels to the chips you want.
2) Talk to J5 and see if he will allow you or design for you, the artwork to match the denoms to the chips you desire
3) Just do a totally custom label using one of the many reputable designers / vendors here on PCF. ie: P5Woody, Gear Labels, J5 design, and a few others.

If a 5c chip is out of the question I wonder if a NCV one will be available? If I got a cash set I'd want something less than .25 as well, though I know we are probably the minority.

With 10 color options I would think there would be a 5c chip, but could be wrong.

He made it clear blanks would be available. Do some labels with Gear and you can have a semi-custom set of whatever denoms you want.

I really like these. IMO if you're using one spot pattern only for all denoms, this is a great choice. Colors are great, too. There's actually no meh chip in this set, they all range from "nice" to "great". My favorites are the white, green and brown chips. Regarding denoms, it would be nice to see a 5c chip, but assuming that the order in the picture reflects the denoms (orange = 25c, white = $1, red = $5, ... , pink = $25000), this won't be the case. One thing, Josh may think about, would be splitting the total production numbers of the pink chip in a 50/50 ratio between 5c's and $25000's. Both denoms should find their buyers and you will never have both of them in play at the same time. Also, the production numbers of the pink chip are probably comparatively small (I can't see anyone buying five racks of 5c's for his cash set or five racks of $25000's for his tourney set).

If these will have a nicer crosshatching and a little less rounded edges than the CPS, I may be seriously tempted ...

I appreciate that Gear makes quality prodcut, but it's a bit weird to contemplate paying more for the labels than the chips... and if you do two laminated labels at $.15 each, that's more than the $.29 expected chip price...

Sharp edges on a china clay would make a lot of chips. Err, um, I mean they would be chippier. That is to say they would be very chippy chips. The chips would get a lot of chips. They would get chips on them. Chippy, with the broom, and the chips. Sweeping chips. Chipper. Chipness. Chips. Ugh.
