I think I might reuse the label design of the tournament set on the cash set :

Princess-10c-Chip.png
Princess-50c-Chip.png
Princess-€1-Chip.png
Princess-€5-Chip.png
Princess-€20-Chip.png


I'll explore another idea and then decide.

And changing the cat color to match the chip main color ? (white or gray / orange / blue / yellow / green or pink)

If not I would go for all white 10c, but that's mostly me not wanting ton of colors on my inlays. Maybe the €1 in second place with the princess text in pink.

I like the 5 and 20, sad no quarter. What stakes are you playing?

I plan to cover :
NL10 : 10c - 10c
NL20 : 10c - 20c (most of the time)
NL50 : 50c - 50c
NL100 : 50c - $1 (not sure my group will ever play these stakes but at least my set will allow it)
I think that 50c-50c will be a good idea for our next CG.

So I got the chips yesterday.
Shipping was very fast, very secured and no missing piece.
Regarding the chips themselves, 43mm with 25mm labels, I would not have expected them to be that nice and so great to handle.

There is however something which is not good. The color of the T25 is off compared to design files and also produced samples.
So I've sent them a mail to fix this chip. The problem is that in artificial light, the green T25 becomes too close to the grey T100 in my opinion. I hope I can get it fixed.

I'll post pics later.

Just pushing another design idea I had in mind.

With plain labels :

Princess-10c-Chip.png
Princess-50c-Chip.png
Princess-€1-Chip.png
Princess-€5-Chip.png
Princess-€20-Chip.png


With shaped labels:

Princess-10c-Chip-Shaped.png
Princess-50c-Chip-Shaped.png
Princess-€1-Chip-Shaped.png
Princess-€5-Chip-Shaped.png
Princess-€20-Chip-Shaped.png


--> note that I plan to make the cash set on these chips which have a marked central area.


I've still to think about which direction to go...

I'm not satisfied anyway with this design yet. Color choice is quite difficult with a darker background which is required for the theme (after dark). Also, the faux-shaped inlay on the €20 is not rendering well at all if I keep the same back-ground color.

Maybe doing a full moon will be better with a black cat then but I really like the crescent moon :

Clearly full moon look better imho.

With shaped labels:

Princess-€1-Chip-Shaped.png
Princess-€5-Chip-Shaped.png
Princess-€20-Chip-Shaped.png

I like the 2 versions but maybe more the plain labels version. But not sure, hard to say only with design picture, without seeing in real.

PS : We feel your The post love with this 50¢. :)

Yes indeed !

Avantage of the plain label is that its content can be bigger. Which for a busy design is better for visibility purposes.

Shaped design would be perfect on PolyClay chips as there will be no issue of color matching.

So if I go in this design direction, it'll be the plain version.

But again, I'm not satisfied with it, even with the full moon.

I just wanted to show what I tried but currently I'm sticking with the "private club" design.

I think that the PolyClay platform is great for shaped inlay design.
I'm almost sure I'll go in that direction.
I re-thought my design and I'm pretty satisfied with this one :

Princess-50c-Chip.png
Princess-€1-Chip.png
Princess-€5-Chip.png
Princess-€20-Chip.png

With the mold and marked central area of these chips, I think this design will render quite well.
