Hi guys!
I was wondering where you can design the actual inlay/sticker of a poker chip? I know CPC has design tool for the chip itself but is there somewhere where I can design my own actual inlay? Thanks!!

There’s no simple drag and drop design tool for inlays if that’s what you’re looking for, but there are several solid designers on this forum that can help you out there.

If you already have PowerPoint it's a pretty decent tool for inlay mockups. It's vector-based and can do curved text and export to PNG.
Inkscape is a more powerful freeware tool but a little buggy and wonky.
Adobe Illustrator for professional results (and costs).

Adobe Illustrator

That's all I know. I'd hire somebody, but you could use the above application or program or whatever it is, to create art.

Getting the art formatted and fit to print on a label, to place on a chip is something more involved that I know nothing about

Designing the inlay is something you don't want to just wing. It's money well spent hiring a designer. You've seen some of the sweet inlay used around here. This is mostly done by people with a lot of experience in design. Most people don't just learn Adobe Illustrator in a few days and get good at design all of a sudden, there's a lot to it. To quote an antiquated meme.... One does not simply "try Adobe Illustrator". ;)
