Hello all,

I am looking for a label design for a 5c and $20 chip to use for a relabel set.

I'm not sure if this is frowned upon, but would I be able to use someone's design to get gear labels printed, if you are willing to share the design with me?
The set is a mixed set, so it doesn't matter too much to me that the labels are the same across denoms. I just don't trust myself to design a label that looks alright and I dig the designs I see many of you making for your sets.

Just tossing this out there.

Thanks everyone!

Do you have any ideas for designs on the labels? Or are you just wanting some existing stuff?

Im OK (Not great) at Illustrator so could help with any ideas you have and make the appropriate files for gear.
I designed up labels for my mixed set over the summer, which gear made a reality :)

What are the other chips in the set? Might help to know what label styles (Black, white, retro, etc) you're working with.

@Gear normally has labels for a lot of existing casinos. Get in contact and ask if he has them (or can get you what you want).

Edit: if he doesn't then there are many designers around here that can help you out.

@mattross1313 those look awesome! I did not have a design in mind, I just wanted it too look professional in general. I really love your designs, if I decide to go with my own design I will certainly PM you. Thanks so much!!

The ideas from @Highli99 and @BillyBluff are actually pretty perfect, I should have though of that myself! I could just reach out to gear and request a label from an existing casino, duh!

@BSteck the 25c are 25 green solids from harrah's cherokee that I don't plan to relabel only because they already say "25" on them.
The 1's are native lights primary. The 5's are HS cinci.
I have 36mm black solids I want to relabel for the 5c and I am yet to find a good chip for the $20 (I am looking for a not-too-expensive blue, yellow, or purple RHC chip)

Any thoughts on a casino that gear might have the design for that would work well with this set? As you can see, the labels are already all different colors and it isn't a bother for me. Maybe all the labels can have different colors so that no two denoms have the same label color.

Love the 36mm black nickel! I wouldn't be surprised if Gear already has artwork for that WSOP label - how about just duplicating it as a 5¢?

Not a bad idea, but now that I think about it, maybe it would be cool to have a different color label since the 5's have a black label. Not sure what color would work though, and the WSOP label looks pretty great on the chip, so I may just do that!

Well, since you're at it... replace the Horseshoe $5 with a red label and then you'd have a color-matched label set.

I would love to, but the 5's are heavily casino-used so I would need to do a full inlay removal :unsure:
I was planning on a label-over for the 5c and $20

GEAR has files for horseshoe indiana labels, you can get any denom you want. I just ordered 25cent and $500 made for relabel

I really dig that set. I kinda wish I had thought about using that tourney chip as a frac in my set. Since there's no dollar sign it wouldn't have bothered my OCD to use it. My route was much more expensive. And I love the idea of the black nickel. Post an update pic when you do the deed
