Hi everyone,

I'm new to the forum I joined because I started playing a lot more online poker during lockdown with my friends & thought it would be a cool idea to get a new set of customs chips for when we can start playing in person again.

I have drawn lots of inspiration and information from this site and plan on placing a custom order in the next few weeks from America!

Look forward to checking-out your setup.
Welcome to the poker chip forum.
Thanks for sharing your plans.
Will share on here once finalised (shouldn't be long now)

Hey clays were a bit more pricey than I wanted to pay. Originally I wanted Chipco blanks (but found out they've been discontinued) so ABC blanks as I hear they are meant to be very good, I have ordered samples, so just waiting to receive them

Welcome! Looking forward to seeing the new chips and set up!
Did you get a cash or tournament set?

Ahhh, cool. I'm in Cardiff, so across the bridge from you, but have family in Dulwich, so not too far from Bow. When are the chips due to arrive, do you know?

Ok cool. I sent the artwork off yesterday and they have already printed the prototypes and dispatched today. Not sure how long shipping will take (During COVID apparently the delays were 2-3 months, but I hear it’s got better so I’m hoping a couple of weeks). Then I’ll order the main set And have to wait again haha

Will be worth the wait — no better chipping feeling. Look forward to seeing them.

Yeah, import duties etc are just one of those things we have to suck up as UK chippers, sadly.

Well, I'm just in the process of getting my first ceramic set made, based on my favourite casino chips of all-time:

In the past, I've treated myself to Paulsons with bespoke overlabels, but these will be hitting the market over the next 6 months so I can pay for my first trip to Vegas:

And before those it was these Paulson RHCs, which were great, too:

Ceramics are looking good, you know who you'll be ordering through yet?
Those Jack chip are awesome! I've seen them before but didn't realise they were yours.

Welcome @Chrischips - your designs look cool. Waiting for chips to arrive is the worst! I have 400 Paulsons sat in NYC waiting to come to the UK :nailbite:

@jr8719 - both your Paulson sets are awesome! I grew up in Bridgend, lived in Cardiff for a while too. Shame I already bought chips :confused
