New to the group just want to say hello setting up my own home cash game and have been pricing chips. I am looking on Alibaba to do some custom printed chips has anyone ever use Alibaba for custom chips?
I would not recommend starting with Alibaba to find chip producers. Start with the fine people in our Vendors section, who are forum sponsors, and have a great track record of providing high quality goods and services.
i might be incorrect, but I believe Alibaba is a connection to cheap Chinese producers. I’m not opposed philosophically with this course, if it provides cheap quality chips. However, I've heard many complain of poor QC from these chip vendors, and right now, with the chaos in the world, especially centered around China, it might be more of a gamble, and would likely involve increased timeframe. But I could be wrong? Just some things to factor in.
as stated already, it’s much safer to utilize the existing site vendors for custom chips. It’s not always going to be as cheap, but rarely have I heard of anyone coming away from a custom order (from a site vendor) with dissatisfaction.
I'm fairly sure these are the SunFly Polyclay chips they advertise. Possibly SunFly gets this chips blank from Alibaba, I dunno. But I wouldn't be as surprised if it was the case.
In terms of chip quality, in my personal opinion, are the best ceramics I've handled, after handling other ceramic chip manufacturers, if not for the texture and having a mold alone. And pretty great durability.
