Long story short I bought a bunch of spirit mold CCs to use as a cheap tournament set. I know they aren't the cream of the crop, but they're super cost-effective and I actually kinda like the look/feel. Sue me :D

Anyway, mocked up some inlays I think I'm going to have made up. Obviously if I'm buying CCs I'm not on the CPC budget, but I used the Design Tool to get an idea of what I can expect. Thoughts and criticisms very welcome and appreciated.

If we're just critiquing labels - I think the ring of white should be changed to the color of the chip, or at least flattened a bit to be less stark of a contrast with the rest of the chip. I think the text is going to also be a little too small to read, so larger text or better visibility would help. The 500 text is not readable on my laptop screen due to the font size + outline colors.

I generally don't like a photograph on a chip... that said, I think you picked great photos. Feels almost like a PNY tribute. I think it might look even better if the whole label was the photo, but then you run into more readability issues unless you can figure out a good way to make those letters pop.

Thanks friend, the PNY definitely was an inspiration. Middle of the night I had the same realization about the text, going to tweak it accordingly because you're 100% right readability is going to be an issue. Thanks for the input.
