    Hey all,

    I bought some BCC Modern Clays and was considering re-labeling them. Vinyl of course. The labels are great already but the set I bought had some odd denominations.
    $.25
    $.50
    $1
    $2
    $5

    I know some would think it's blasphemous to re-label these, but I'm thinking of labeling them for tourney /cash.

    5
    25
    100
    500
    1000

    Has anyone done this?
    Think there'd be issue of them coming off or being too thick?

    They're your chips so you can do what you want. Don't know about the BCCs but I've labeled some Paulson Pharaohs to match my NPS chips and there's been no problem. Hope this helps.

    That's cool.

    Did you get your labels from Hog Wild?

    Thanks for the response.

    They're just too darn nice looking to part with, even though I haven't received them yet. They should be here Friday.

    Did you get your labels from HogWild? If not, where'd you get them done?

    Thanks

    Nope, did them myself. It is so cool to have a vinyl cutter!

    vinyl cutter?
    tell me more ---my 1st batch of labels came from HG perfect but without cuts.
    I'd like to use them because the 2nd batch came with the colors off and I was too busy to further pursue the matter.
    Another batch I made to do china key-molds arrived shrunken from truck heat and the replacments also had discoloration, so I chucked them all.

    Needless to say . I'm not a fan of custom stick-on labels (this being my 1st try and only attempt).
    I've never seen anyone else complain though --so maybe I just have * luck.

    All righty, then! Mine is a Graphtec Craft Robo CC-100. You may be able to find one on eBay. Or, go here for the CC-200 Graphtec Vinyl Sign Cutter Craft ROBO Custom Apparel Scrapbooking Hobby Crafts. There are others in the same price range but my research indicated this was the best.

    Then visit Online Labels - Labels for laser and inkjet printers! Compatible with all the popular software programs for printing labels! and look for the full-sheet polyester labels. Material is only about 2 mil so thickness is not a problem.

    This is the (relatively) inexpensive way to do your own labels. Someday I'll have the $$$ for a printer/cutter.

    Hope this is what you needed to know.

    Seems like an idea.

    The vinyl labels I got from HogWild a year ago left a lot to be desired. They were printed too large, and the color was pretty faint.

    Otherwise the service, turn around time and quality of the labels were great. Plus he's out of the office.

    Who are the other suppliers of good vinyl labels? I hear Palm Imports do them. I've only seen the one image on their site and it's not very detailed.

    Anyone have close ups of their Palm labels?
