Here. Sometimes there. But mostly not
I couldn’t find a thread that focused strictly on custom dealer buttons so I thought I’d start one. If one already exists oooooops. I just feel like there are hundreds if not thousands of custom buttons floating around. Thought it’d be fun to see them all in one place. I’ll start. Post em if you’ve got em! If they aren’t your personal creations try and tag the creator if you know who it is.

I’ll start it off with my first custom DBs. Tigerhawk Card Room in white, black and yellow. Made by @BR Pro Poker

Then the massive chips with custom DB labels in green, black, purple and blue. Made by @ABC Gifts and Awards

Next I’ll move on to my NUTS custom buttons. First up are the two that were made to accompany my cards mold cash chip set, in black and red. Made by @BR Pro Poker

Then I discovered the amazing resin buttons that @jja412 created, with a different image on each side. One a mirror ball-like black, one a glittery white

6FBA8259-1FB1-40BC-966A-C2EC188B5827.jpegDDFB279A-7208-49F1-AF51-1E8AC5920AD1.jpeg07908BED-97AA-4371-8A57-D3B6DF0311F2.jpeg95FD2528-074B-40FD-A8ED-CEAD1E4D7741.jpeg

Finally, I was introduced to custom metal buttons. Off-forum vendor who does amazing work.

Here are some that are unique creations that I designed.

Small Arms Dealer in blue and green. Found the idea while doing an online search.

Saw a different Jeep dealer button, and as a Jeep owner myself, decided to make my own version using an old grill and a new grill logo.

Not a dealer button per se, but still a custom design of mine

760A9923-C79C-429D-9A09-689B4E12DFF6.jpeg

Pretty sure @Nuhockey thought of this one, but I mocked it up and had them made

B0138876-2C0E-4692-83ED-BF07EB2B9989.jpeg

This was done in the 49mm size and came from a conversation with @Ben8257 . Again, maybe not a dealer button but it’s a custom design I made

223C48E5-351F-43B9-B269-CD36D6A14A0E.jpeg

I honestly can’t remember where this idea came from, other than it was being discussed by a few of us at the time. But I created the original mock-up and @chipjoker finished off the design

Love the PAC-MAN. Never seen that one before.
 
The original JACK Detroit buttons were created by @Quicksilver-75 . People were clamoring for JACK Cincy buttons, so I got permission from Steve to have @JeepologyOffroad make the necessary changes made

A5CD8999-8D38-4A64-A0D1-E93816CC8FF2.jpeg4470F260-B8F4-4018-BF5E-D3C0116E0258.jpeg8FFEB701-8167-48A0-8E39-093239FF8AFA.jpeg2A912AAB-9F4A-4405-AB95-EEB84AC1C5F3.jpeg

The original Black and Tan versions of @Ronoh ’s iconic Pillage and Plunder buttons were revised, with permission, by @Johnny5

DD711FFF-4223-40A2-9C55-D36C88B6B6F5.jpeg6FBBADBF-95AC-4625-B323-F97310139C4B.jpeg6FE3B127-8DFD-4A75-9100-61294D6860E2.jpegF5F7ACA4-4130-4592-A77F-5549639276CF.jpeg

Again, I went with an existing idea of a great chip set, and created some custom buttons with permission from @Josh Kifer

F286C440-78C9-441C-96E0-D050312734FB.jpegBC9EA2CF-4632-4716-B992-0E6F71D25A66.jpeg7F4E147B-64BD-4D4F-B5D3-E3D9B8C27032.jpeg200204AB-FE96-4796-9992-09D55C56554F.jpeg

He even let me make these with his name on them :ROFL: :ROFLMAO:

36D9F40E-7389-488B-AF7F-1B10918D03A4.jpeg

The next one was completely lifted off of a legendary old thread. If you haven’t read the Hard Candy Hold’em thread, do yourself a favor and search for it. Again, I didn’t create it, but I had it made. It had to be done.

4B73D21E-8A14-40DA-AD4F-8677D57C178F.jpeg
 
Last but not least. Again, not an original creation of mine. @Lars originally had these made, and @p5woody was the designer. I loved it immediately when I saw an old thread with a picture of this button in it. But it didn’t say “dealer” on it. So I reached out to @Lars to ask him if I could revise it, and he was kind enough to oblige. probably my favorite dealer button ever because it’s so unique.

I have done a few Custom Dealer Buttons. For almost all of them @timinater was my designer. I had ideas in my head then conveyed them to Tim via PM and he brought them to life.

Let me start of with Dealer Buttons for my Custom Sets

From my Mirimar Resort & Casino which is a Top Gun inspired set. I have a Red, Blue, and White Alternate Button. The rolling edges for the Dealer Buttons are below.

Here are my Dealer Buttons from my Casino Inigo set which is based on The Princess Bride. The Fezzik/Andre Buttons were inspired from the Obey and Andre The Giant has a Posse stickers from the late 90s and 2000s. There are two buttons which one is Black and the other is white. Rolling edges are below.

Next Up here are my Star Wars Dealer Buttons. All designed by the Timinator.

This is the one that got me started going down the Custom Dealer Buttons that are Non themed set DBs Rabbit hole. This one came about because me and James @Himewad were talking about making Dealer Buttons based on the Sun and the 8 Planets in our Solar System. While doing research for the pIanets I wasn't coming up with great ideas for buttons. In my research I stumbled across a picture of the Death Star. I then thought that would be a cool DB, but then I thought if both sides were the same it would be boring. So I searched and searched and then found the idea of the Battle Damaged Death Star from the Empire Strikes Back for the other side.

DEATHSTAR-SIDE2.jpg


The Rebel Helmet Dealer Button button came about because I wanted a Rebel Button to contrast the Empire Button. The helmet design is what I came up with. It was not as popular as the Death Star so the Helmets only was ran once by me. They did have a small GB in Canada which I allowed them to run both of the Death Star and Rebel Helmets again.

After I ran the first two Dealer Buttons I one day came across a Millennium Falcon picture while looking up a Lego Falcon set. I thought to myself hey the MF would make a Great Dealer Button so I had these designed and made. One side has the Falcon ready to go to Warp Speed.

After the Star Wars Buttons I was thinking of 80s things to make buttons of. One of the thoughts I had was making more DBs based on 80s Video Games as I had just gotten a Pac-Man and Ms. Pac-Man Button from James at the time. Donkey Kong is the one that stood out to me that I wanted to do. My son and I were playing Donkey Kong on the NES during the height of the pandemic and I saw the boot up screen and it gave me idea to have the word DEALER in the same font. This one was also done by Timinator for me. Both sides of the button are shown.

Next after Donkey Kong I made the Karate Kid Buttons as I love this movie. The only movie I've probably watched more than this is Top Gun. Goodfellas is probably in 3rd. The first button is Cobra Kai Button. The next button is Miyagi-Do Button which the text color is different on both sides.

I don’t know how I missed out on the Death Star and Millennium Falcon buttons. Ugh.
 
I don't know how I forgot about these TAJ buttons. These were done early on during time on the PCF and these were designed and made by SAL at OWPS. It was my very first Group Buy that I ran. I had spent way TOO Many hours of my life at the TAJ and this was my tribute to the place,

One of my Latest Projects and a thought I always had was making Dealer Buttons to honor the 5 Military Branches. I know you Army, Air Force, Marines, and Navy guys & gals are saying to yourselves what is the 5th branch? LOL One of my best friends served in the US Coast Guard and would beg to differ. My Navy friends used to bust his chops. I have seen all those Military Challenge Chips and Coins and never saw Dealer Buttons so I thought I'd make some. One night in September I knew Veteran's Day was in November and I said let me come up with Designs for Military Dealer Buttons. I wanted to see if there was any interest and try to get these done before Veteran's Day.. I came up with my crappy designs and posted an interest thread and I got a lot of interest in the Military Buttons. Then a Godsend @warma came along and volunteered his services and with his skill he refined and designed the awesome buttons you see below. He paid attention to detail for sure as he got the fonts the actual services used and even had help from the USAF on the buttons. He also worked with BRPRO to make sure the proofs were correct. Then below that are the rolling edges of the DBs. At the very bottom are the Military Seating Sets that one of the persons in the GB Pm'd that he wanted to make for each branch. It was after the orders for GB for the DBs were collected so it was not made public. I came up with a crude design for the seating chips and @warma once again came through and fixed the designs so they came out perfect with the correct fonts.

Donkey Kong is the best game ever!
 
This is my latest project which I completed in Decmber. It is a hodge podge of things. Transformers, Rock ,N Roll, and sports buttons. One of my favorite buttons I have ever made is the AC/DC Button below. I love AC/DC and have the album For Those About to Rock and wanted to listen to it one day on my CD Player and that is what got this project idea started. With the sports buttons I love love the New York Rangers and had to have those made. The Yankees are one of my teams also. I couldn't think of a NY Giants buttons and for the Celtics I had ideas, but they didn't make this cut. The Mets, Bruins, and Steelers Buttons were made for friends. I did start a thread last year asking everyone's favorite sports teams for this purpose of ideas for designs. In the future I'll make some buttons with other sports teams.

100 % you had designed these. I had these made also with your Small Arms Dealer Buttons when I ordered the Super Hero Dealer Buttons. I got the design idea from someone who was selling the custom Pappy's Poker chip set.
 
Sorry to take up so much space on this thread. I only posted My own custom Dealer Buttons on this thread,
That Spaceballs button is excellent!

This thread starts and ends with @Himewad and @Jeff
Absolutely blasphemy not to include @Nuhockey in this statement sir!

Thanks @Ben8257 - Jeff was the OG Button collector when I joined. I've told Jeff this before that his poker Chip Weebly website is the thing that got me to join the PCF. I was looking for company that made a custom Dealer Button that I made a few years prior and then found his site of DBs and the rest is history. Jeff, Sal from OWPS, and Ronoh are the ones who really boosted my collection in the beginning. I also dealt with some members early on who sold me DBs in bulk before they went to the general population. I think the users were @liftapint , @Potsie1 , and @RainmanTrail that let me get like 20-30 buttons off them in one shot years ago. James I think I was one of the first people to sell him a Dealer Button. Now he's probably the top DB collector on here and the one that puts in all the work to get Dealer Buttons Remade and made. He is the one that got my Dealer Button collection to that extreme level. He is also the one who inspired me to custom make all those buttons because of the Solar System DB discussion. Right now I'm probably over 900 buttons with DBs of all sizes and types.

The one thing I would have to say is that back in the day you had to be on the PCF constantly all day if you wanted Dealer Buttons because people would just post Dealer Buttons for sale out of the blue and if you were not online within 10-15 minutes they would be gone. I missed out on so much good stuff at the time because I was doing something else LOL.. Now buttons hardly ever go on sale.
