    I don't think I posted these in this thread yet, some of @Gear's finest work IMO. Sending the rest of them into be be converted this week.

    New (and improved) Aztar Missouri $5 chips to replace the original worn giant inlay version. (originally Aurora Star T5 chips)

    How could I forget about this thread...

    Labels arrived 2 days before the annual Zombie Hall of Fame event (not the fault of Gear, but the nearly 20 days from postmark to arrival). New Inductee gets their image on 10 chips. Sure, this is a small potatoes order for Gear, but he has been willing to produce them so I can celebrate the players that made my club great.

    Gear laminated labels on CPS chips.

    Heh :) It's actually more like 126, 160, or 198 to a sheet when they're printed, and I cut them down to 9x12 (ish) to fit in the Tyvek shipping envelopes.

    The numbers depend on size:
    126 = 9 rows of 14 (e.g. 1.125")
    160 = 10 rows of 16 (e.g. 1")
    198 = 11 rows of 18 (e.g. 0.875")

    Rhodeman's labels were for CPC inlay replacement, so nominally 0.875", 198 per print, two sheets of 9 x 11 labels.

    I didn’t get a whole of labels on tonight, almost 1 rack :(

    Here is a little preview.

    No such thing as a "small potatoes" order.

    Lots of "small potatoes" add up.
    Just ask the folks in Charlottetown PEI.

    I found a small Cow Creek hoard but no $25’s until Gear worked his magic.

    @Gear did absolutely incredible work with my Top Hat Cafe set. The pictures I have really don't do the labels justice. What's even better than that is that he worked with me to size the labels by sending me samples back and forth! Everyone knows that Chris is the man to go to for labels, but I figured I would add yet another A+ grade to his growing list!

    These might not appeal to a lot of those that like high end chips, but I can't brag enough about the product @Gear produces. It was really fun working on this set, and I appreciate that Chris makes it affordable for low rollers, like me! His work truly is amazing.

    ^ Don't undersell those, that is an awesome set!

    Actual conversation with a buddy of mine tonight, whom I was showing my relabel projects. Made me LOL.

    Me: [hands him a few chips] "This is the finished product."
    Him: "What do you mean 'finished product?' "
    Me: "Those were milled and the label was put on."
    Him: "Wait this really has a label on it?"
    Me: [shows him a blank milled chip and sheet of labels]
    Him: "Holy &#$% you can't tell!"

    @Gear put in a ton of work to get these just right and sent me I-can't-even-count how many free samples. He not only happily put up with my nitpicking down to a few thousandths of an inch adjustments, over and over, but even suggested these sizing samples to dial it in perfectly.

    Quick pic of the first rack done, sorry for horrible quality. I'll get some better pron when everything is done.

    I LOL'ed when I saw this...If you only knew how nit picky he is about his own stuff!

    Gear is a puzzle fan. Each job is it's own puzzle, and to find the solution is a huge satisfaction.
    The harder and more complex the puzzle, the more satisfying the solution, no matter how many steps it took to solve it. :D

    I love those Empress designs, and look forward to more pr0n.

    I had the chance this past Friday to play with some chips using @Gear labels. If I hadn’t known anything about chips I never would’ve guessed that the chips were anything but 100% real Olivia’s quarters. Excellent work.

    Ahhhhh, indeed! With the small exception that there are no Olivia’s quarters!

    Exactly! I knew that, but if I wasn’t a chipper, I would’ve thought they were 100% original casino fracs :D

    Your point is spot on. Gear is the man. His workmanship is unparalleled.
