Thanks y'all!

Some specs:

Overlabels
All aligned front + back!
Weird/unnecessary set breakdown, don't judge haha
Might add onto the set eventually! I play a wide range of games, stakes, + with people who like to have a lot of chips in front of them but no limit games haha

Congratulations! Long time in the making but well worth it. Fantastic work. Really like the final design. did you end up creating this design yourself after moving away from the one with the mountain etc?

Thanks everybody! It was a super fun process and I am very happy with the end results!

I ended up finding the Stones Gambling Hall chips, both the Tavern and the Saloon, and really fell in love with the Saloon.

This is basically a recreation of their Saloon chips, but slightly different inlay and very different edge spots.

I decided that I loved this Saloon theme + logo better than my original mountain/beer designs.

I fooled around with the idea of adding small bottles/glasses/mugs to the designs for different denoms, but ultimately decided to keep it uniform. I am sure that a better designer could have come up with a fun and creative way to incorporate something like that, but I knew I'd love this simple design as well!

Thanks everybody for the feedback all throughout my design process! I'm sure I'll be adding onto this set to make a full 1000 chip set with many different cash and tournament options.

Well, great job. I really like how clean this design is. Well done.

Awesome!
Love this!

Does overlabel ruin things or would most murder here to get he old labels off?

For quality of chip - inlay replacement is better in basically every case.

Overlabels Pros + Cons
Pros:
- Faster
- Preserves underlying chip (and therefore it's original value)
- Cheaper? (if you decide to go with laminated or textured labels with inlay replacement, not a requirement)
Cons:
- Can be noticeable on top of chip
- Just doesn't look as good as full inlay replacement

Full Inlay Replacement Pros + Cons
Pros:
- Looks flawless
- Option to be laminated or textured labels
- Lays deeper set in the chip, less chance for peeling
Cons:
- Much more time consuming
- Lose some value of original inlay (this is semi-debatable if people always intend to relabel, but in general it's worth less when murdered)
- Can be more expensive


My reasoning for overlabels was mostly their value + laziness for realizing how difficult it can be to remove old inlays.

That white chip is a helluva chip! What was it originally?

The whole set works very well!
