*Update. We have 2 types of gaming suede, Home Grade gaming suede and Casino grade gaming suede. Here's a video of the breakdown of the 2 different fabrics. You can print on either side, meaning that you have 4 surfaces to choose from. The default choice for any cloth orders is the smooth side of the Home Grade gaming suede. Casino grade is $20 extra.

The smooth side of either gaming suede is significantly softer than suited speed cloth*

Hi everyone,

I have been printing my own custom cloths for some time now and the process has been going very well. I print the graphics on gaming suede using the dye sublimation method. I have sold some cloths to several people from various different forums with nothing but positive reviews.

The cloths are available up to 61" wide and any length. Prices are as follows:

Up to 96" long:
$225+ $16 USD shipping for a custom cloth. Shipping is $20 for 2 cloths. First 2 hours of design time are included. $75/hour after that.

$30 off if you have your own artwork which you send to me so that it can go straight to print.

$20 off if you're an established poker table builder (built more than 5 tables).

$50 off if both of the above apply to you.

$25 extra per foot over 96".

If you need some help for installing a custom felt, see the installation video here.

Samples are $5 to cover postage and are available upon request. PM me your address and I will mail you one.

You can chose any color you like, you are not limited to these colors. This is just a reference point for you to use since sometimes colors on your monitor differ than what is actually printed. It's also to give you a sample so you can feel the fabric. My gaming suede is NOT the same as typical gaming suede offered by other vendors. It's silkier so getting a sample is highly recommended. It's still waterproof.

File format for submitting artwork should be in .ai format. Include as much bleed as you want. Make sure you include a bleed! (extra print to wrap around the playing surface) 4" is plenty.

Examples:

How does the process work?

Provide me with the dimensions of the felt you want and instructions as to what you want the design to be. We then adjust the design until you're happy with the final result.

As an example, here's a process of 10 revisions until we got the final product.

End result:

This is awesome! I will be in the market for some plain black gaming suede in the next couple of months! Unfortunately I don't have pictures of all the tables I've built (6) so I don't know how I can prove that to you. Either way, this is still a cheaper option than most vendors charge. Can you give me some information on the gaming suede IE: nap, grain, card-glide? Thanks Tony!

EDIT: Just read the entire post. This sounds just like what I've been looking for and I would be thrilled to support your business.

The 5 table minimum is a number of tables which I think separates a builder from a hobbyist building tables for themselves. I can't offer the price of $130 to everyone but want to offer a discount for those who will be repeat customers. I don't need proof of the tables built, I can usually recognise members that I know have built more than a few tables.

Are you willing to ship to Australia? I will be in the market soon to redo my table. I was thinking either SSC or a custom suede to compliment my custom chips.

Thanks

Yes I will ship to Australia but you would have to pay the actual shipping costs. I fold up the cloths into a small box to save on shipping and then the cloth can be ironed flat.

Man, I could see a table like those Moen tables (without the logos) in my house...what can I say, I like to keep things simple. Time to start saving up.

You might like this one then, essentially the same table just without the logos and with a SSC pattern printed on the cloth.

The rail's a little wet from a wipe down.

Totally understandable. You may here from me in the new year.

Yup, that's what my next table will be. Just need the funds for it...

Sounds good. Be sure to check in on my website at the online quote page as I often have promotions. In August I had a promo for a free custom cloth upgrade ($395 value).

I've purchased this type of cloth from Chan - it's a good product, very similar to the feel of softer custom suited speedcloth material but without the somewhat abrasive feel of the raised suit pattern. It almost has a linen type of feel to it - it's more of a "smooth" soft than a "plush" soft. It's a pretty unique product - I haven't seen it offered elsewhere, most of the US gaming suede fabrics are more like a shorter napped version of nylon velvet. This cloth isn't as felty and cushy but you gain a lot better card slide.

Chanman, are those prices good for a cloth printed for a 60 inch round? Maybe I'll go with that instead of the normal SSC. I have a design in mind and would have it ready.

I have ordered 4 of these cloths from Chanman so far. The quality is excellent. The printing is very detailed, card slide is great, fully waterproof, and no issues with durability yet (although a short time-frame). If any of you have shopped around, you'll know that his prices are unbeatable. Chan was great to work with, and his communication was very quick. One thing to point out - his cloths are not like any other gaming suede I have felt before. It is less like felt, and more like bed sheet (for lack of a better way of explaining it). There is no nap or grain direction at all, so card glide is excellent in every direction. It is a little less soft to the touch than a typical casino felt, but still much softer than Suited Speed Cloth. I have seen a similar material in a couple of casinos.

Here are a couple pictures of a couple of the tables with Chanman cloths (Apparently I'm a noob at posting pictures)

how will these cloths sit over an existing PGI gaming suede cloth? I would rather not take off my existing cloth because it has about a gazillion staples in the back and is spray glued down to the wood. I would rather stretch the new one over this one. Would it be an issue to do that?

Would plain black be something you would be willing to do, Tony? I know it's boring, but I want something that is good quality that also doesn't run $300 (other estimates I've gotten).

I haven't laid a cloth over another cloth before so I don't know. I don't see any reason why it wouldn't sit well as long as the surface underneath is flat.

Yes I do sold colors as well. I did a plain black for Irish recently.

Tony, I trust your work, and rather than get samples....

I need a custom 44"x 84" gaming cloth with 18" x 58" x 3/8" betting line, printed like the one below - green faux speed-cloth with betting line in either black or dark green (preferred). I have no artwork.

Please shoot me a PM with your price, PayPal address, and estimated time frame for delivery. Thanks!

This just reminded me that my table has a reversible top. Blue SSC on one side and green SSC on the other. Might be time to unbolt the rail and flip the insert for a new look. I always wanted a custom cloth but I'd be afraid to pull the staples and remove one side. :eek: I'd get one in a minute if you were near me and could install it.

I can always build you a 2nd insert. I would just need the measurements of your existing playing surface.

Never though of that! That is a great idea. My only concern would be the cost of shipping that vs just the cloth. We'll have to look into that.
