Do you like 1 2 or 3 best. pretty easy poll. Of course I have final choice but I want to use this as a guide to what most people think is best...I have a feeling I know what will win though ;)

voted red, but matching-colors are really close. not a fan of the all-black denoms.

also, i'm glad you ended up branching out from the mostly 1/4" spots. these look great.

Agree that 3 isn't bad if that floats your boat more. I just don't think color matching the denoms was necessary on this one.

^^^^^This^^^^ The gray $1 and purple $20 give me pause, but still look solid, I think the red contrast is just a bit better. Black is not horrible either, but it gets kinda lost in the rest of the inlay on this one. These are looking great BTW

I voted red, but the black was really close. I don't really care for the matching color denom's

Individually, I think the color-matched chips look outstanding. However, the red denom chips look more cohesive as a set. Imo, the black denoms are too 'bold' for the rest of the design... might work if the denom was a tad smaller, or the numerals were less dark (charcoal, for example). Hey, there's a thought! jk

I think if the individual chips were viewed side-by-side per denom, the color-matched chips would win hands-down. Looking at them grouped in sets, the natural inclination is to focus on the differences instead of each chip individually.

All that said, I think it's a toss-up between #1 and #3. All depends on which look you want to achieve. I'd probably go with #3, but it's very close. If I went with red, I'd probably take off the almost-too-bright edge a bit (ref. black comments above).

I voted for red, but really liked the color matched denoms too. I especially liked the color matching on the $5, $20, and $100, but less so on the .25 and $1.

i agree with this. maybe if the color-matching looked better on the frac and $1 i'd have been more inclined to vote for that version over the red denoms.

i don't see how it could be done differently, though. maybe you could do a pink denom on the $1 (it would be anomaly in the set, its denom color not being the same as the base, but i don't mind that so much), but i think you're sort of stuck on the frac.

Thanks,

notice I went .25 and not .50 Dave?:)


And yes I agree the .25 and 1 looks not as awesome as the rest. :( If anyone could pour in some ideas on how to fix this up (the .25 and 1), please please feel do so!

But also, I intend to follow up with a tourney set of ceramics. So I could do the color matching cash chips and all red denom tourney set?

I think I"d prefer the color-matched $5 red denom across all chips -- it's a little more subtle with less contrast. Your chip base/spot colors are not blaring, but that bright red denom sure is.

The red denom works for me. Black is too stark, detracts from the rest of the design. Cool set! :)

so your saying turn down the red intensity a bit on the denom? 'almost too bright edge' .

Picked Black, but hovered back and forth between it and Red. No love whatsoever on color-matched here. I like the classy, understated Black or Red. It's like James Bond, if he were a chip. He just wouldn't wear bright purple socks.

Yes unfortunately, the color matching is only melding with the last few denominations. First two.. meh. Don't think there is any way around this.
