Wow- thank you! Appreciate all the kind words and detailed response. You said exactly the elements I wanted to pull off with the set so it makes me very happy to hear it translated to some degree, especially from someone like you.One of the biggest hurdles in designing a great set of meaningful customs is finding an image that perfectly encapsulates the theme and feeling you're trying to emulate, and at the same time actually looks good on a printed circle that's less than an inch in diameter. The stars completely aligned here with that old truck at the resort, not only is it a cool personal connection to the hotel that will trigger those awesome memories every time you play with them, but it just 100% fits in with the southwest / Arizona theme. Love the almost-non standard base colors too, most are just a shade or too different from your "standard" chip colors, which gives them a really unique feel without getting crazy off the wall different and potentially confusing players. The fiver (both of them!) is awesome, I had a very similar color combo in mind for a future meetup chip. If you get the chance, could you post the full breakdown of the CPC spots and colors?
It's been 20+ years since I've visited but IMHO Sedona is one of the most beautiful towns in the country, and you really nailed the vibe hear - all without going over the top with their famed red rocks. Bravo sir!
These are my favorites types of custom sets - those with a cool backstory that are incredibly personal to the owner and very well thought out, top to bottom.
Really awesome set, thank you for sharing your story with us and best of luck in dragging many pots your way with these beauties.
I was actually hesitant to post the set at all due to some fear that some feedback may make me think of something I would kick myself for not doing better- which there always will be- and sour me on it.
Realized that the forum at large is why I got into the hobby as much as I have and how much I love seeing everyone else's reveals. The more I looked at them in person I more I loved them anyway so was worth biting the bullet on the post.
I will certainly post the build sheet here as well in the second post, hopefully this afternoon, with the inlay artwork and a few more random shots.
