I normally like that size too. But I've got it in my head that because the chips are oversized, a plaque should be oversized too.
Although, as I said, the 60mm jeton is tempting, with that pricing.
I think I'll have to cut out some plaque sized pieces of paper, just to see how they look on the table with the chips.
I’ll post pictures later, pretty sure I have all the sizes.

I recently made an MSK plaque order. I was not charged an art setup fee as a separate line item on the invoice. However, shipping costs can be significant and they will also add a percentage fee for credit card/PayPal.

Metallic printing, serial numbering, and other security features will be extra.

There are some other FHC (fat hat and cane) chips out there as well, Ive shuffled some Palms ones, don't know the denoms though.

How about using the 47mm “The Winner Club” chips?
I have a lot of specific, unbreakable rules for chipsets. One of them is that you can’t have a mixed set with 3 denoms from one set and one denom from a different set. UNBREAKABLE!!

Another rule is that no pretend chips are ever allowed. I’ve granted myself a narrow exception for this set, where I’m allowed one (and only one) pretend denomination, but only if it’s a big fancy plaque (or jeton,) for the highest denomination, designed to match the set.
I’m willing to listen to other suggestions, but I can only say that nothing involving a similarly sized clay chip is going to work.

if you think these rules are ridiculous, I won’t argue with you. All I can say is that I didn’t make them up - they come from universal truths that are beyond my control.

This is a correct observation. :)

What's a pretend chip / pretend denomination?

Relabels.
I don’t understand the point of owing real casino chips, if some of the chips are counterfeits or imposters. That’s just my own rule, and I realize that a lot of people don’t agree with it.
Another problem I have with relabels is that when I see them, they create a sort of dissonance inside my brain. Because I recognize the spot patter as a known, existing chip. And then I see the inlay, which is trying to tell me that the chip is something else.
I really dislike relabels.

Huh. Interesting perspective.

My only problem with relabels is that unless they're label-overs, they look like ass (because of the second recess created within the molded recess).
