Hello!

I was hoping someone who lives on the American side of the of the border wouldn't mind reshipping to me in Canada. I'm trying to source some cheap chip sample sets for a very inexpensive set I need for upcoming tournaments. The company that has all samples I want only ships using Fed-Ex and is ridiculously expensive. If interested PM me. It would be greatly appreciated and I will compensate you for your time.

Steve.

The samples are from http://www.discountpokershop.com/loose-poker-chips-c-12.html more specifically the Monaco casino, Lucky Horseshoe and Pro Poker / matsui knock offs located closer to the bottom of the linked page. The greatest consideration to the project is price. The chimps using these chips wouldn't know abs plastic chips from Paulson's and probably would give a rat's ass. Which is why I'm not breaking out my own chips for this....lost, stolen, thrown or even chewed on....

I can save you the time/expense of samples. Get either the Monaco or Horseshoe, whichever design you prefer. Check pricing against Apache's Poker Knights, Showdown Club, and Monaco Club chips lines (including shipping to CAN) -- they are all essentially the same chip, and one of the better options at that price point.

Not the Monaco's Josh (Apache) has. These..

They seem to be new to the market. They are incredibly hard to source and thus even harder in bulk rather than pre-made sets.

I know, but all five chip lines are basically the same chip construction and materials, just slightly different mold markings (plus different label artwork, of course). For your purposes, I'd get whichever one is cheapest, unless you just really like one of the designs better than the others. The Horseshoes mght feel a bit more plastic due to the smaller labels and no concentric circles, but the other four I referenced are basically identical (Monaco Casino, Poker Knights, Showdown Club, and Monaco Club).

Well it is for the work crowd so I want it to look like I tried...:p



...and I'm a chipper and needed to satisfy my own curiosity (which just happens to be closer to the truth)

Actually, any of those would look pretty good with some of your custom artwork labels applied. The recess is plenty deep.....
