Hey y'all. Greetings to everyone on PCF from Rappahannock County, VA. I'm relatively new to the poker chip world. I've been playing since high school. For the longest time I played with dice chips, but about a year ago, I decided to upgrade to a cash set of Milanos. After a few weeks on here, I found a nice set of Rounders chips and splurged. Nowadays I'm planning some of my own custom chips from CPC. I've included a few pictures of both.

Welcome from Leesburg VA. :tup:
Does Leesburg count as VA or a suburb of DC... hmm? Lol kidding brother!

Welcome @castletonmax! Definitely man if you ever want to play with the VA crew reach out to @Seeking Alpha Social Club, come and check out lots of different chips as Kevin could easily open a chipping museum!!

We drive about 3 hours to attend those games! @FordPickup92 and I are in northern Maryland, but love to travel for good poker games!!

If there is anything we can help with shoot us a PM!

Fellow Chipper Ben

Willing to try something? Flip that beast in your chips- have it point to the right and let me know what you feel.

Hello and welcome!

I know this isn't a design thread, but consider the following:
- Increase the font size of "Midland" so that it uses a little more real estate to its left and right; also consider centering in on the exact diameter
- remove the comma
- allow a little bit of white space between the text and the bottom of the graphic - you don't want the grass to overlap the lettering
- when finished, print out your design at 7/8" diameter and hold it arms length away from your face - make sure the denom and major text is readable at that distance

Welcome!

We've heard of the Castleton Festival, but never made it there. Spent a lot of time at a friend's B&B in Sperryville, and a lot of money at the Inn at Little Washington, though... :cool

Late hello from another nearby member. I hiked Old Rag two weeks ago - my second time, doesn't get any easier. Looking forward to an area meetup when a bit safer to do so.
