Here's my story:
A couple of years ago I bought a set of greatwall china clays from palm imports and I really like them. Our game has grown and we now have two tables and we play a mixture of cash and tournament games. We were still using cheap chips for the side cash games and it was time to upgrade. I needed to add to my existing set and I needed a decent 500 chip set for cash games.
Here are the cheap chips:
Since I was adding more chips I needed to add storage and I always liked the look of a birdcage, so the hunt began for cash chips and a birdcage. I was looking at the palm imports 8v chips, milanos, casino roulettes, etc. While looking for chips I found 1000 13 gram pro clay casino chips with a birdcage for a $80 delivered. I figured even if I didn't like the chips I could sell them. The chips were far better then I expected, they are a decent chip with a recess for labels. I only needed 500 chips so I sold 500 of them for $40 so that reduced my cost even more.
Now it was time to contact jason at personalpokerchips.com and have him print me some labels. While I was having labels printed I also decided to modify my existing bounty chips to make them a bounty/seating chip. One side has the bounty and the other has the table color and seat number on it. Jason was great to work with, we had a little delay shipping but I am very happy with the final product. Applying labels is not hard just time consuming.
Here is the end result with both sides of the chips:
