    Have you confirmed with ASM that they will sell blanks on the no mold? I thought they only sold Circle-Square, Hourglass, and Horse Head blanks?

    Labeling chips is not hard, but it is time consuming. Most (if not all) vendors that sell vinyl labels them with adhesive on the back so no super glue will be needed.

    If you ask 10 different people where the "best" place to get labels is, it's possible you'll get 10 different answers. I went with Jason at PersonalPokerChips.com. But he's having (or recently had) back surgery and is out of commission for a while. There are plenty of other options out there. Do a search and dig through the results.

    You will have to wait 8-12 weeks for your order, so why the rush to order by tonight, a few extra days to get better information will surely benefit you more?

    The no mold/plain mold has no recess in the middle of the chip. As a result, any labels affixed to the chip will stand out and rub against anything the chip rests on (table, other chips, etc.) and will probably get damaged. Depending on the size of the inlay, too, stack-wobble could be an issue.

    I like the plain mold, but I would recommend letting ASM do the inlays.
