I think this is a conceptually good idea, but it depends on what you’re used to. I had played with 1000/5000 for so long, I found it difficult to play with 2000/10000. I kept miss counting my declare bet when I would go to cut the chips.If I were doing a custom tourney set I would go with
25/100/500/2000/10,000 maybe a 50K depending on what I wanted to do.
Yes, and I am really thankful for the advice!Hi and welcome to the site!
I assume this set is for tournament play? I see you are in Asia so I'm not sure about denominations. If you tell us a bit more about the application of the set that will help.
One piece of feedback I can offer is that denominations of 10 and 10,000 are not typically used. Typical tournament denominations are as follows:
25/100/500/1000/5000/25000 (and sometimes 5)
25/100/500/2000/10000/50000 (used less often than above)
You're sure to get lots of good advice on design and breakdown here!
I will surely look into this! I chose the A-mold because it is the initial of my first nameI feel like the inlay has too much white space on it. Personally I'd make the denomination bold font and probably remove the commas in the higher denoms. My first instinct was that the set would work on the smaller inlay. I'm liking the spot design, but not sure about the colors that repeat in some chips. Also have you considered the circle-square mold? Not sure if there is any theme connection to the A-mold but personally I'd go with csq mold despite that mold feeling less textured and more smooth, I love the feel and look of csq.
Well noted on the 1000 and 5000 chip. Personally I feel the same, and thought I would ask here to see if it was just me who thought so! If there's any suggestion to that I would be really thankful!Couple things that jump out at me is the 1000 and 5000 chip are too close in color. Sharing. Color on 2 chips next to each other in denomination is never a good idea, on top of that blue and green can get confused easily in low light.
Is the inlay just a place holder for now? If not I recommend working with a designer. There is a lot of empty space you can be using up. And I would go with a 7/8” inlay as well since you aren’t using the whole inlay for some dramatic art work let the clay be seen!!
Look for some interesting fonts possibly. The font can give a set a lot of character when you are trying to keep the design more simple.
