Hi,

I am going to dash(launch) into my first personalized project.
It will be a set paulson relabel tournament 320.

I still hesitate between:
80 x 25 80 x 100 80 x 500 60 x 1000 20 x 5000

Or 80 x 25 130 x 100 50 x 500 60 x 1000

I chose the theme whisky.
La cave à Whisky


Here is a rough draft, of a possible choice of label.
Of what think of it you?
Have you other ideas?

I'd like to see it mocked in the chip factory. I like the design but want to see how the denomination color works. You could print a few on paper, cut them out and post picks with them on your chips.

I very much like the theme and concept - and I love the idea of the denom being the age of each barrel. It's rare that the denomination belongs in the art.

Unlike many chippers, I'm not concerned with the denom being very bold and readable across the table, I just like when it looks good on the chip and the art. Honestly, in play, we identify the value across the table from the chip colors and stack. We only need to be able to read the denoms on the chips the first few times we see them, and they're usually under our noses.

In this vein of thought, and in the spirit of this art, I'd consider using a font for the denom which looks like hand-stenciled letters; something with a manual feel, and perhaps not exactly evenly lined up. In fact, if it were me, I'd make two versions, one for each side of the chip, with the only difference being that the numbers are misaligned differently; then, when you have several in front of you, you get the impression that they're not all the same, but rather, hand-crafted.

On your chip counts - these Paulsons have alread been acquired, and these are the only chip count options? If not, what aspects are flexible?

The artwork suggestions put forth by both Strike1st and Mental Nomad are excellent for this project.


Regarding your set breakdown, it appears that you are attempting to build a small (~300 chips) 10-player tournament set with T10000 starting stacks. If so, I recommend:

starting stacks:
8 x T25
8 x T100
6 x T500
6 x T1000
-----------
28 chips = T10000

chip set:
80 x T25
80 x T100
60 x T500
100 x T1000 (includes 40x for color-ups)
-----------
320 total chips

~OR~

chip set:
80 x T25
80 x T100
60 x T500
60 x T1000
20 x T5000 (8x for color-ups, 12x for up to six re-buys)
-----------
300 total chips


But my personal preference would be:

starting stacks:
12 x T25
12 x T100
5 x T500
6 x T1000
-----------
37 chips = T10000

chip set:
120 x T25
120 x T100
50 x T500
60 x T1000
30 x T5000 (8x for color-ups, 22x for up to eleven re-buys)
-----------
380 total chips

Wasn't sure if that was possible, he may have already collected his chips. I was going to recommend:

starting stacks:
12 x T25
12 x T100
5 x T500
1 x T1000
-----------
32 chips = T5000

chip set:
120 x T25
120 x T100
50 x T500
25 x T1000 (10 pieces for buy-ins, 3 color up all the $25's, 12 color up all the 100's)
10 or more x T5000 plaques (optional for T10000 tourney or rebuy tourney)
-----------
315 total chips, ten+ plaques

Thank you for your answers. I am going to try to work on the project. I like the idea of the values by hand. I tried a version with a less loaded inlay! It would give that: for the malette,
I am going to opt for 10 or 20 plates of 5000.

I still hesitate between:
80 x 25 + 130 x 100 + 50 x 500 + 60 x 1000 + chips color up 15 x $1000
+ 20 plaques $5000
or
80 x 25 + 80 x 100 + 80 x 500 + 80 x 1000 + 20 plaques $5000

I can't make sense of chip counts for a tournament set without knowing the starting stacks you're considering.

In my example, I assumed ten buy-ins with T5000 in the breakdown suggested - then I can make sense of the chip counts for the set. Notice BGinGA also started each example with the exact chip counts.

We both assumed a 10-person table, as well - if you have an 8-person table, or a strict 6-player group, then things are different. Let us know what the context is if you want to hear our thoughts about your two proposed chip sets.

^^This amount of text results in a much cleaner and uncluttered look. Often, less is more.

I agree! (I missed the fact that you changed the inlay, at first - it just looks clean. The fact that I didn't notice what was removed suggests it wasn't really critical to the design.)

The set will be a set for 10 players. Cellars will be either 5000 with rebuy or 10 000 without rebuy

I'm re-thinking my vote; I'm usually in the "less is more" camp, but I'm liking V1, as well.

I wonder if it's because, at a glance, I see the "Boris Poker Room" as a white bar on a white chip.

Can you post a mockup of those labels on a different-colored chip, as well? I think that may tip the preferences.

Wasn't there some discussion of using a wood-burning engraving look to the denomination?
