    Not too soon, but maybe summer next year? Though I'd most likely crack the number for getting the mold mounted on my own again.
    Aw hell, my H mold set is still in production and I'm already thinking about the next :oops:

    Is there anyone looking to place an A mold 1 1/16" inlay order anytime soon? Would like to piggyback on another order so I don't have to order 300.

    I'm pretty sure the inlay size is irrelevant to minimums - you could add an A-mold chip with any size inlay to any A-mold order, providing that the minimums were still met. (y) :thumbsup:

    Unfortunately I don't believe that is the case. Something to do with the process makes them different. Last time I did a mixed order they let it through, but was told that it wouldn't be possible again. Unless I'm mis-remembering something....@David Spragg

    Congrats! I hope it starts a trend. I've been waiting for what feels like forever but it's only been a couple months :(

    The only thing I have from David about inlay sizes and manufacturing minimums is that they always print 100 inlays (for 50 chips) at a time, and while these can have multiple different graphics they all need to be cut with the same inlay size/shape. But they can do lower amounts for a premium.

    I'm pretty sure you can combine your order with any other A mold order. The only hard minimum appears to be the total amount of chips. Rest can be worked with a premium.

    But yeah, best to ask.

    OK, ok. Here's what's coming.

    This set is an @mipevi design, and Mikko not only graciously let me make a set of his chips for myself, but also helped me tweak the design a little bit to suit my own preferences. He was amazingly kind.

    I knew I really wanted a set on the E&C mold, while that was still an option. And didn't think I could come up with a set design that I liked better than Mikko's Siam Imperia set on that mold. So I reached out to Mikko, and he was awesome and said "Yes"!

    I SWEAR, my next set of CPC chips will be my own design. In fact, I've already started working on the inlay design.

    Anyway, here are the proofs of what is coming. This is actually a mixture of what I ordered for myself, and some sample and add-on chips for Mikko. My set will consist of the 5-100k chips, plus the dealer, show 'em, rebuy, and bounty. Mikko had some 1s made, and a all-white 5/500 prototype chip.

    Unfortunately I only got a handful of extras, so I won't be offering samples to the community! I had to get my order in ASAP, to get in on this run of E&C, and didn't have time to collect for samples up front. -- SORRY

    Enjoy.

    edit: I want to give a shout-out to @Jeff too, who let me borrow his sample set of the original Siam chips, so I could get a better idea of what tweaks I wanted to make to the set. This led to only a couple of small changes, since I loved the original design so much!

    I'm wondering if I should have the community help me with my next set, or keep it blind to the whole process -- I do have two secret helpers though, so not EVERYONE will be blinded.

    I won't be ordering them until late 2018 or even early 2019. So it will be awhile (I SWEAR, snowmobiles come first!). I don't want to get the design too far along, or else I'd have a hard time waiting! One the hardest decisions will be what mold to use. I've been struggling with that one!

    Yes, the E&C was a no-brainer for the Siam set. It's the NEXT set that I'm stumped, as to mold. I might have to enlist help.
