This is a dealer button interest thread / suggestion box for the next group buy (PCFDBGB06). The general idea is to create dealer buttons that have never been made before, or were made years ago, or are popular enough that they just needed to be run again. With an emphasis toward basing them on old casinos or epic chip sets (with the owner's permission, obviously). I have coined the term "PCFDBGB" to stand for "Poker Chip Forum Dealer Button Group Buy." I am currently running the fifth iteration of these dealer button group buys (PCFDBGB05), which can be found HERE.

Full disclosure ... I will be using this thread to gather ideas for at least the next couple of months. I have run a lot of these dealer button group buys consecutively, and they are a helluva lot of work, and I'm going to take a little break once the current group buy ships out. So if you are looking for something in the next month or two, this isn't the thread for you. But if you have an idea that you would EVENTUALLY like to see done, then let's have at it.

I am open to any new ideas and suggestions, but preference will be given to button designs with broad appeal.

If you are serious about getting a dealer button made with one of your design ideas, I ask that you please do some of the legwork on your own. Try to locate where the original artwork exists, and try to obtain permission to use this artwork. For example:
  • If you want to reproduce a dealer button that already exists (i.e. you have seen pictures of it), you need to locate either the person who originally ordered the button (preferred) or the person who designed it (or both). Most people are totally willing (even flattered) that you would want to reproduce their button, so getting permission to use their DB artwork is a formality. Once you obtain permission, you can send me a PM so I can update our list of DB options.
  • If you want to produce a dealer button that has never been produced, but is based on a specific chip set, you need to locate either the person who owns the chip set (preferred) or the person who designed it (or both). This is a slightly more difficult approval to obtain. Some people are very protective of their chip set artwork, but others are very willing to give permission to produce accessories (such as dealer buttons), as long as the artwork will not be used for chip labels. Once you obtain permission, you can send me a PM so I can update our list of DB options.
  • If you want to produce a dealer button that has never been produced, but is based on a specific casino, we have some limitations. As of April 2021, BR Pro Poker has informed me that they will no longer produce items with casino names / logos if the casino is currently in operation. They vetoed a couple of items from our list in the PCFDBGB02 group buy (The Mirage and The Golden Nugget). If you have any questions about whether BR Pro Poker will produce a specific casino button, I suggest sending a PM or email to them so that you don't waste your time or money.
Please note that I am NOT a graphic designer or graphic artist, and I make no claim to be. Also, please note that I will NOT be doing the research for you. I may be doing my own research, but only if it's an idea that I have come up with personally. I am here to organize our ideas and (eventually) run the group buy.

1. Treasure Island, St. Maarten (@JeepologyOffroad)*

2. Starlites

3. Rounders (if it's not too soon)

4. Isle of Capri, KCMO (@FordPickup92 - I believe)*

*Tagged who I believe designed these as I think they have the final say and/or an associated charge. Not sure who designed the other two. (Edit: Was just informed @timinater is likely involved in one or more of these.)

Also, if any artist is available, I have an old casino that I would like to make a button for that I believe would be popular and have an idea or two; I just suck with graphic design etc. Just PM if available. I believe it should be a relatively easy design, but again I'm ignorant on the process.

I could come up with some designs. Is there a template with the proper size already? Or what's the size of the circle? I can just input the measurements too.

I second the vote for a Majestic Star design. I also second the vote for Super Poker World swag, if the folks behind that are cool with it.

60mm is the standard diameter. Which would make the circumference about 188.5mm. I believe the rolling edge is 5.6mm tall.
