    Hello Chiptalk Members,
    <o></o>Several months ago, I researched a process of labeling our poker chips with a laser. I posted a few articles with photos to convey what I was doing and how well it worked. Several Chiptalk members joined in with questions, chips, ideas, and overall support for the process. Near the end of 2006, I made the decision to offer the custom laser service to Chiptalk members. Currently, I am scratch building a machine that is nearing completion. If things go well, I should be ready to test fire the laser on Sunday or Monday. There’s much more to do before it will be production ready, but I'm almost there. Until then, I’ll edit this post and add information as things progress.
    Thanks,
    Jason

    News: June 4, 2007 - Big day today. I fired up the laser and marked the first chip. This day is one that I will never forget.
    News: June 15, 2007 - Things are moving along. I plan to be ready by July 4th. I have paint pens, chip stickers, a supply of chips and I will offer a set of stock artworks to assist in the design process.
    News: June 27, 2007 - I'm pushing back my ready date of July 4th. I am ready to create chip samples and assist with your artwork ideas.

    A historical view of LazerChips:Question & Answer
    Q: How much does the service cost?

    Sounds very cool! I'm interested in a sample set or maybe your seconds and thirds.

    Thanks,

    I have 40 of the St. Charles 43mm chips that I would like to turn into "Bounty" chips. Let me know if you need testers.

    Great news for chip junkies. Will the images be stock or customizeable?

    Both. I'll offer stock artworks as I create them and I can use custom images that you create.

    -ky70, I still have you on the list.

    Quick question that you might want to answer in your OP:

    Is this service for injection-molded (faux clay, Nexgen, other slugged plastic) "composite" chips or compression-molded (Paulson, BCC, TRKing, ASM) "clay" chips - or both? What about ceramic (Chipco, Sunfly, Nevada Jack) chips (doubt it)?

    Thanks.

    I'm interested. My goal is to have some custom solids with hot-stamp markings similar in design to the Harrah's Rincon San Diego tourney chips. Simple design with the words curving around the outer part of the inlay.

    The hot stamping ideas on the other threads sound great. Looking forward to any updates.

    -I have lasered these chips: Faux Clay(Deluxe Dice), Super Diamond, Paulson, ASM, Chipco, Sunfly. The ceramics have proven to laser extremely well. The clays laser very well. The plastics can be tricky, but laser very well too.

    -Thanks the3rd, I'll add the articles to the top.

    -I have an 'interested member' list that was started in November. Within a couple weeks, I'll PM those members in the order of contact to re-announce the service and take orders if desired.

    -The hot-stamping idea looks very promising and I bet it'll be very popular.

    Thanks.
