But before that, let's hammer out the menu for the next dealer button group buy!
This is a dealer button interest thread / suggestion box for the next group buy (PCFDBGB07). 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. I have coined the term "PCFDBGB" to stand for "Poker Chip Forum Dealer Button Group Buy."
I will be using this thread to gather ideas thru the end of this month. I have run a lot of these dealer button group buys over the past couple of years, and they are a helluva lot of work. So if you are looking for something in the next few weeks, this isn't the thread for you. But if you have an idea that you would EVENTUALLY like to see done, then let's get after it.
I am open to any new ideas and suggestions, but ultimately I choose which buttons will be included in the next group buy, and preference will be given to button designs with broad appeal.
If you want to make a design for bounty chips, all in chips, etc, you can do that too! Typically, we order them on the 47mm chips.
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.
