    Hi,

    J5 and I have been working on a set of customs for some time now. These are based on my business logo which has a kite, key and lighting bolt in reference to Benjamin Franklin. I think he is the most interesting person in history as he was a pioneer in so many areas and was such an important part of the founding of the United States. I wanted to have these done on the FDL mold as a reference to Franklin being the first U.S. Ambassador to France.
    I won a chip from Toby(Black Cat Club) several years ago that has script about the edge of the label which I think looks great and is easy to read on the large label of the FDL. I put my favorite quotes from Poor Richards Almanac around the edge of the label. I had to slightly modify some of them so that they would more or less have the same number of letters.
    I decided on solids as I was after an old fashioned look and I think solids have a simple classy look to them. I spent countless time trying different spots. David(BGinGA) and John(J5) both helped me come up with great spots but I just kept thinking that these look best as solids as John and I had originally designed them.
    I would like to thank J5 for his patience and excellent work. He is awesome.
    Thanks to Dave(BG) also for his help with spots and breakdowns. And finally thanks to David(CPC) for taking a chance investing in the mold repair.
    I hope you like them. If anyone would like a set of samples post here. I just want to order enough without ordering too many. A full set is $11 plus shipping to you. You can pay when I get them in a couple of months. kl_fdl_solid2a.jpg kl_fdl_solid2b.jpg

    Very cool idea and execution. I'd love a sample set as well, please.

    One minor suggestion: maybe consider switching the quotes on the 25 and 500 such that the "die at 25" quote is on the $25?

    I would love a sample, to see how these chips shuffle/sound, etc.

    Thinking about going from Custom Ceramics to Custom CPC's

    What colours did you use (I'm not quite sure for some of them)? They look great.
