How about 318+ for the 25 so it flows w the rest and the spots are smaller for spot progression purposes.

Just my opinion, but either go with all the same spot pattern (and no, having all the chips with different patterns but all having three spots is not the same spot pattern), or go with a progression. And having the smallest denom with the greatest number of spots doesn't work very well (IMO)

Did not realize I had repeated the spot pattern between #2 and #5. Let me know how this one looks. Not sure what to do with #1. I don't want to go with green as at some point I will probably buy a Casino set that already has green as the $25. There is continuity that #2 - #5 all kind of share a 3 spot pattern.View attachment 598547

the T100? You had before was awesome!!! I’d keep it. Maybe 314 for the lowest chip? What about 3V for the biggest chip if you want to go all 3 spot chips?

After lots of discussions back and forth with my wife and daughter on colours and spots it looks like I have finally narrowed down my choice for a custom CPC set. A few notes to share. My last name starts with H I do not desire the H mold. The A mold is my favorite but I do like to hear members thoughts. The inlay you see is just a place holder for now. Over the holidays I am going to get my wife to work on refining a design I have sketched out. It will be based on a Maui theme as our family has had 5 visits and fall in love with the island every time we have gone. I love mixing up colours and since the group of friends that I play with couldn't care less about colours I wanted to go with what I enjoy for combinations. Chip #2 is based on the 2007 WSOP Seconday 25000 charcoal quarter pie which I have always found to be my favorite of the WSOP chips. I have had lots of fun changing spot patterns from my first set of "this is the one" to this current lineup. I do have a sample set of CPC chips and being able to overlay the chips together has been a huge help.

Any and all opinions are welcome. And I am wondering about changing the base colour of #4 to DG PinkView attachment 597071

Take with a grain of salt

I haven't read everyone else's post. I'm not trying to come across as a dick (that's how it will sound). I would completely start over. Chip #4 is pretty cool. None of them play well together. The cohesiveness of the spots and colors are all over the place. The only individual chip that I like is the white 3D14.

Saying that. If you like it. Fuck it. Roll with it.

I am not a fan of the same spot patter on all the chips. I am trying to come up with more of a spot progression series. Thanks for everyone's input. So far.
FWIW, I love my hundo chip... 6A14 spots... It pops!

It's also never been in play.

Don't be afraid to make your workhorse chip your best chip, spot progression be damned.

Strict spot progression is absolutely unneeded. Unless you're that particular niche OCD. What genuinely is needed is being able to differentiate between all the denoms easily. Both shape and color are ways to achieve this, with the best results coming when combining both. The only thing that matters for this is how the chips look on their edges.

This means no repetition of a spot style (only one *14, only one *D14, only one *DS316, ...) and colors that are easy to distinguish from another.

I second others' recommendations to strongly brighten up the lineup, especially with the tropical island theme you want to follow. Earthy colors are not a fit for that. There have been some improvements over the course of this thread already, but more can be done (T5k). What about a DG Green base chip with some thin funky spots instead?

I really like the black and brown quarter pie and think it'd be a great hundo. I'm not sure what a good edge spot would be as a 25 knowing the quarter pie is the hundo. Big fan of the Pink with blue 3D14, that'd be a great 500. Would the TriMoon edge chip make a good quarter? Thoughts on having a set without 25s?

Regarding the mold, they really do all feel different. Is it just me or does the A mold feel more textured than the Crown mold?

Some suggestions.

More complex spots:

Bit more interesting T25 Tri-moon:
index3.png


T25 beach
T100 palm bark
T500 seawater
T1000 funky flower
T5000 lush vegetation

Order can of course be altered to have the chip base colors a bit more in line with traditional colors: green, brown, pink, yellow, blue

Your brown chip is really quite nice. I like the combination a lot.
My wife and I did up a revised set last night. New post coming shortly.

Hopefully a little better variation. And no repeating colours. Please note that just because it is a Maui theme not every colour needs to have a direct connection to the Valley Isle. And I may be eliminating the Green chip and forego a 25 denom all together. I have one of the original Dunes commemorative sets from years ago and I ordered it without any $25 chip. If, and I say this with a grain of salt, I can ever start hosting a 3 table tournament again the chips will be able to be used in conjuction with each other.

I like your purple chip a lot!
Perhaps go back the the tri-moon blue chip to change up the spot pattern a little more between those 2 chips.
Definitely an improvement.

You will get dirty stack issues under bad lighting conditions with the new blue and purple chips. Re-using the *12 spot style and fairly similar color hues. The brown one also is allround dark and could contribute even more to that issue.

Might want to consider the more efficient breakdown of 25, 100, 500, 2000, 10000.

The 500--->1000 is just terribly inefficient late in the tournament.
It's funny you say that. I have often wondered about eliminating the 1000 and 5000 and replacing them with a 2500 and 10000.
Great minds?

This is one of the areas Ive been struggling with on my tourny inlays I'm working on. I'm a big proponent of the 4x-5x value progression and that 500 to 1k has been bugging me, although it seems to be common in the chip sets I've been looking at. But then it lets you move from 1k to 5k and 25k, which I like. I cant make up my mind on progression to 2K or 2,500. 2,500 feels "clunky" to me, like putting a snapper in a 50c/$1 game.

Trying to keep the spot levels lower for cost savings and use the 1/4 pie chip. Which doesn’t really fit if you are using a progression very well unless you make it the lowest chip maybe?

But this type of line up gives you good function with different spot sizes and colors so dirty stacks shouldn’t be an issue.

I like this version more.

How do you guys get all the denominations of chips to print out on one image? I can only seem to get one chip at a time to print... so I stitch them manually together in PowerPoint. I must not be able to use CPC’s builder very well...

Latest and I hope last version. Slight mods and a very rough inlay of what the final will resemble. Stacey (my wife) drew up some ideas years ago for this idea. I kept everything and now she will be working on fine tuning with proper colours and denoms. Hopefully have a better looking idea over the break. One thing we put together was no two colours are repeated.

And about trying to keep costs down, I am throwing that plan out the window. The 1/4 pie will be a 100 denomination and the imperial blue based chip will be my 500 denomination. These 2 chips will see the most use at the table and they are my favorites of the 4. Still trying to determine the other denominations for the lavender and maroon chips but that is a minor issue at this point. I wanted to get the spot patterns and colours in place before Christmas so I can submit my order.

I haven't read every post. Out of the mock ups that you have done I think this one is getting really close. The progression from chips 1 to 3 is really solid (I don't love the 312 or the 4a12 spots, but that is a personal preference). Having a 3 color, 4 color, 3 color, 3 color chip seems a tad odd. I would rather go with 2 colors, 3, colors, 4 colors, 5 colors (or all the same thing).

The only spot progression that feels slightly like a step back is chip #4, but again, that's just a personal preference.

The maroon chip is a 4 colour chip. Maroon plus 3 different spots. I did want to keep that kind of balance between them.
Thanks for the feedback.

Your right. It took a closer inspection by me. So you have 3 color, 4 color, 3 color 4 color. That could work lol.

The edge spot themselves on chip #4 almost feel like its from a different set. The first three chips spots have a semblance of being from the same family. Now that could work if that is the biggest chip in the set. In a cash set, 100's rarely hit the felt in my game. When they do, I want the colors/spots to immediately announce themselves that the big dogs are in play.
