    THIS GB IS MOVING FORWARD AT "THE OTHER SITE"

    I'm trying to get a custom Matsui plaque order going for a $5 denom. @SixSpeedFury is managing the GB, I'm just trying to help promote it.

    This plaque would be for low-limit games; .25/.50 mainly, where only a few $5 chips are normally in play. I realize there may not be a huge demand for this, but we have a tally of 47 total so far... would love to try and break 100 if we can.

    I'll keep track of orders in this post.

    Current mockup from @p5woody (current $20 and $100 shown for comparison):

    Jumping in to ask if this is a true GB or if this is what is was before where it was profit driven (~17% upcharge on all plaques)? If that's the case then can one of the mods change the title on this one to reflect that it is not a true GB.

    If this GB falls through - in that SpeedSix does not want to carry it forward due to lack of interest - I will gladly take it over and run it at cost. i.e., making it a "true GB".

    I have no interest in making money off this - I just want to see the $5 plaques made - and I will deal with the hassle/effort of repacking/shipping plaques, quoting actual shipping costs, etc., at my own time/expense if it will help make this thing happen.

    Not trying to throw anyone under the bus here - just trying to find/offer any path forward to get this done.

    Isn't there another plaque manufacturer that can make a plaque at a significant savings? If there isn't enough interest in matsui plaques that cost $15-$18 perhaps you can drum up more interest in a cheaper plaque price point ($5-$8 if iirc). Something about paying $18 for a $5 plaque just doesn't seem right.
