On the off chance this isn't a troll, and to help the next newbies who wonder about this...

Getting chips from Paulson isn't a matter of order quantities. GPI simply will not sell to customers other than licensed casinos no matter how big an order you place or how much money you offer them. The few times it's been done successfully (that we know of) were when a) the buyers pretended to be a middleman company representing cruise lines and b) the buyers enlisted the help of an accommodating casino.

Also: I'm linking to my post about this every time this comes up: https://www.pokerchipforum.com/threads/sunsetbeach.66689/#post-1334466
The whole boat chip NAGB thing is fascinating to me. It’s like the peak of hobbyist/collector trolling of a manufacturer. Imagine tricking a brand like Rolex or something into making a run of watches with the exact specs you want lol. I would love to hear the full story one day in some kind of article or video series.

I’d 100% buy a copy of a book detailing this, Jim from TCR’s adventures of Chip acquisition, personal stories from veteran collectors… You could even turn the book into a HU table

Crikey, give it a rest already. They know about us. They can read these threads anytime they want. If you write about it here, there is a 100% chance it will fail.
What I’m suggesting is more along the lines of being on the up and up and placing a legit order, and not trying to pull a scam to get them.

Thats a nice sentinment but the only "legit" order GPI is going to accept is from a licenced casino with the intention of being used by the licenced casino as the checks it uses to conduct its operation as a casino.

Sure. So why doesn’t someone start a casino aka a card room? You guys just aren’t thinking big picture.
