PCF Classic Poker Chips Mold & Color Sample Set

01/11/21 Update: The sample set is currently:
AVAILABLE

Samples, samples, samples!

I have the following CPC Sample Set available to "rent" as a package. It includes a color sample, small shuffle stacks of each mold, and a handful of inlayed custom chips from various molds, as inlayed chips can feel slightly different than blanks.

COLOR SAMPLE (38 chips)
One full 38 plain color sample set on the "A-Crest" mold with all the current CPC colors:

Note that CPC has samples of most everything noted above available for purchase, so if you'd like to get samples to keep, please check in directly with them, it will probably run you ~$325+ and is subject to availability. The intent of this offering is to give folks within our chip community looking to purchase a custom CPC set a chance to get their hands on a set of samples, complete with half barrels of chips to get a feel for each mold, at a minimal price (cost of shipping both ways).

Here's how it works:
  • The cost to rent the sample set is $15 plus a refundable** $375 deposit, paid via paypal friends & family. This is the cost of shipping with insurance via USPS.
  • Once payment is received, I'll ship the full sample set to you via USPS flat rate padded envelope with insurance.
  • You keep the sample set for up to 4 weeks, then mail the complete sample set back (you pay the return shipping).
  • As long as the complete sample set is returned (undamaged) in a timely fashion, I then send you back your $375 deposit via paypal friends & family.
**The details:
  • The color samples are numbered with a black permanent marker on one side – the key is noted in the OP of this thread
  • Do NOT shuffle the color sample chips or the inlayed chips, this will help to keep them clean and easily distinguishable
  • You may shuffle and handle the mold samples to get a feel for each mold, I just ask you do so with consideration for the next person getting the samples. The intent is for you to get a feel for the mold, not spend 8 hours a day for 4 weeks shuffling them at your desk at work while eating a cheesesteak with fries... without a napkin...
  • ALL 200 chips must be returned in the same condition for you to receive your deposit back. Partial refunds will not be given if one chip is missing - the value of this set to the community (and me) is that it's a complete sample set. The mold samples are white so I understand they're going to get a little dirty, but if there is caked on dirt from you shuffling them, please give them a quick cleaning before returning them (no oxi-clean!!).
  • The chips will be shipped in special wooden box (see below) with foam padding, in a double padded flat rate envelope with a USPS tracking number and insurance. At a minimum, the sample set should be mailed back the same way or better, in the sample box they came in. The box was built to fit into a double padded flat rate envelope. I would also recommend adding insurance to the package on the way back; if the sample is damaged or lost in the mail, your deposit will not be refunded. UPS or Fed Ex is acceptable if you prefer those options.
  • At the moment this is limited to the continental US ONLY. Canada may be a possibility (PM me if you have further details on shipping) but I would imagine that shipping costs overseas would make this cost prohibitive.
  • This offer is valid to all PCF members with at least 20 posts who have been active for at least one month.

As long as you adhere to the above, your total out of pocket cost should be around $30. Again, the intent here is to offer a more comprehensive set of samples than just a color sample and a single set of mold samples, at the cost of shipping. I'm not making any money off this and the deposit is only in place to cover the potential of someone "forgetting" to return the set or just part of the set.

Feel free to ask any questions here or shoot me a PM.

I would also include basic cleaning instructions with the chips. We wouldn't want anyone accidentally melting the chips by cleaning them in Oxiclean!

That's a good point, I'll put together a brief write-up or find a relevant link here. Thanks

What a great contribution to the membership!

I'd send them in a medium flat-rate box, though, because I wouldn't trust even the sturdiest padded envelope for that many chips in a box.

I thought about the various shipping options, went with the box within the padded envelope to keep the costs down. I have some leftover table foam that will be used to further pad the box within the envelope, I've sent a few racks like this and they seemed to make the trip OK (will post a pic when I get the chance). I'll keep an eye on it though, if need be we'll upgrade to the medium flat rate box.

Did you add the scroll molds to the 'package?

Just need to mention for anyone reading that Matt is doing this with our blessing. :)

Thanks David and yes, the new scroll mold samples are also now included in this package. I also have a few other goodies to include, including inlayed samples of almost every mold and some shaped inlay samples, courtesy of some generous PCF members. I've been meaning to take some pictures of the new items and update this thread, I'll try to do so by the end of the week, not enough hours in the day, :)

Including Irish's loaner set? Two way shipping and customs fees would have to be included, right?
I would guess that is up to each borrower to negotiate individually with Irish.
Of course it would probably be cheaper for Europe for someone to buy another full set from me :)

Maybe I should put together a cut-down version that would ship around Europe at $10 or less a go.

@Irish,

When you adding the Dayglo Tiger color?

I'm interested in "renting" only the color samples from you. Would prefer to do this if you plan on acquiring the DG Tiger soon?

If not, maybe I'll just buy a color sample set and consider doing the same thing that you are, except only with the color samples. More sets to rent, lol.

Sorry, I missed these two posts. This sample set is currently only available to ship within the US. By the time you factor in shipping back forth across the pond, it just doesn't make any sense.

Chaos has an entire sample set (minus the dayglo unfortunately) that I'm going to borrow.

Thanks anyways, this is a great deal.

Good news for all the european chipaholics out there.
I received my sample sets from David some time ago.
The samples consists in a color and mold sample with one of each.
If there is interest in sharing, let me know and I will work out the details (something similar to Irish's term of use) soon.

@Irish Is this available to rent? Also, do you have the DG Peacock available (or better, is this a full sample color set)?

All of the images are down for me

Photobucket is being a giant pain in the ass, not only is the 3rd party hosting disabled but I also can't get to random photos on their site now. I fixed a couple but I'll have to dig out the rest later. They're out of the minds if they think anyone would pay for their services at this point... :mad::mad::mad:

Newbie question: is this the thread to post impressions of the color chart sample set in comparison to the computer screen images?
