  • If you want the same design on poker and bridge size the artwork setup fee would apply to each and be $20 fee total.

@Eloe2000 out of curiosity, when do you expect us to have the artwork finished for this round? That will help me decide if I'm in or not.

No clue. I thought the last one was going to take a couple months to fill up but it only took about a week. I would say just work on your artwork promptly and jump in once ever its ready. Once you are getting close you can just touch base and I will let you know where we are at.

Sounds good Evan! Thanks again for running these. We're working on the artwork for the DB for my custom CPC Bourbon chips, and it would be so cool to have cut cards too. If I don't make this one, there's always #11 :)

Whew! As a rookie to the forum, I just want to point out how quickly one can rapidly fall into the rabbit hole.

Welcome! The rabbit hole is deep AND wide.

While you're at it there on Illustrator, don't forget custom Dealer Buttons and cards mold ceramics. And @Gear labels for the next Chip Room Paulson buy that was teased today.

@Eloe2000 - really dumb question (sorry). Can the 2 sides be different base colours? white one side, black the other?

Definitely. These are fully printed and they are thick so there is no bleed through from one side to the other. One side can be black and the other white and they will look fine.

There is so much to take in! I really have to think about a name / design. Seeing everyone's sets is inspiring. They're all amazing.

Thanks for the heads up on the Chip Room activities. I'll go check it out. For research purposes... of course. ;)

Interested in 60 poker size, I have my design done. Is it possible to change the background color within the order or would that be 3 different set up charges?

Do you mean, for example, if you had a logo in the center but wanted one with a white background, one with a black background, and one with a red background? If so unfortunately each would incur the charge because it is still three different card design setups (even if minor). If you wanted just two different colored background versions you could do a different color background on each side of the same card and they only charge one setup fee. Lots of people do that.

As someone who purchased cut cards in a previous run, order more than you think you need. They are cheap, and make great “toss in“ gifts when shipping packages. Lots of people collect them too.

There are no minimums so you can order as few as you would like of any card. But yes, unfortunately is you have the same exact design in bridge ad well as poker it incurs the $10 setup fee for each size.
