some time ago I started to design poker chips during long train rides or boring lessons at university… not because I wanted to get them produced, just because the design tool is fun. so now I have multiple half-finished custom poker set designs lying around that nobody has ever seen and obviously never got made. I figured i’ll start (kind of) finishing them when I get time and post the mockups here.
maybe you like some of them, i can't really tell if those are any good :D

CMYK Tournament Chips
those are based on the CMYK (cyan, magenta, yellow, black) colors used in printing. I really love those, and if I ever get the funds to do custom chips it’s most likely gonna be them - quarter pie chips ar just amazing.
only problem is that the CPC color palette doesn’t really offer the colors needed… chipcos polyclay chips would probably work for them and could get the colors right (so if someone wants to sell a sample of those…)

Barber Shop Backroom Poker
last week I walked by some barber shop that just opened across the street of my university (didn’t know they still exist) and saw a black curtain at the back someone just walked trough… i spent half the day deciding how the chips would look that the older men and hipsters use to play poker in the back of this barber shop...
i actually think this might could be going somewhere (the inlay - the colors, not so much)

I saw this and thought of Barber Poker instead. :)

wouldn't say these went nowhere since J5 finished the design and i loved it - i just never got them made. i had intended to laser a giant batch of faux clays i had at one point. anyone who would like to is free to use the design. pm/email and i'll send in hi res.

Instead of making a new thread I'll just bump this one.

I'm constantly playing with the chip design page with sets that'll never see the light of day.

I like stocky's! Makes me wonder if there are enough chippers ready to pull the trigger on a couple thousand E&C custom chips if they had the chance, like I am. I know the issues and the mold situation. I also like to think that nothing is impossible.

Rerail - Never went anywhere with this one.


Whoa! Sick Mike!

Don't worry, Mike. At least the basic $1 design will live on in my set :) (and I think was already made in a prior custom set from someone else?)

I'm not even a huge fan of the Mapes, but that $1 just grabs me for some reason.
