    I think the only thing I would change is have the Denoms match the color of the chip.

    I like them the way they are...I think maybe the "the" and the "cardroom" text could be a bit bigger, but I really like the concept and design overall...Very BJ looking...Nice work!

    More denoms!!!

    Here they are again with a few little tweaks like a small bump in the size of some of the text.

    Added a $500 chip and tweaked the inlays.

    Not really pleased with the colors on the $500, especially the edge spots.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated. If I have time I might work on a $1000 chip as well.

    Design looks great but why not come up with a new unique name that you created instead of one that's already been done. Seriously, tap into that creativity.

    Love these chips! The only thing I don't like about them is the "G" faux mold. Maybe the denom or something instead...

    I like the idea of the denoms on the outter ring. I also realized I but the wrong inlay onto the $100.

    I decided to play around with a 1K chip and need some feedback.

    Here's two variations I've come up with. The one on the left is set up just like the rest of the set with white outter denoms, un-outlined inlay and the center denom matching the base color.

    After I created it it didn't really seem to have any pop to it so I made the tweaks and came up with the one on the right. Thoughts?

    The $1000 chip on the right is much better, IMO. As you said, it really pops. White text gets lost on a yellow background. I also like the denom on the ring.

    Did you consider echoing the spot designs from the rim on the rolling edges, either alone or alternating with the denoms?

    Here's my latest revision. I really like the tweaks that have been suggested so far.

    The major changes from my previous version are the new edgespots and I also curved the outer text for the denoms.

    I very satisfied with the results so far but I think my latest addition (the $5K chip) needs so work to bring it up to the level of the other chips. I'm stumped as far as what I can do with the spots to make them unique compared to the denoms but not make them so different that they don't fit in. I'm also not thrilled with the color but I know a grey is somewhat standard for a $1K.

    Any feedback you have would be helpful.

    FWIW, I like these. Just curious, why are the $ signs inconsistent sizes? On the $1, $5 and $25 they're nice and small, but huge on the rest.

    Nice catch. Fixed that and changed the denom color of the $5K

    Maybe outline the inlays on the 25¢, 1$, 5$, 25$ and $500 cips like the $1000 and $5000. The $25 dollar sign is maybe 1 or 2 fonts sizes larger the all the rest :wink:

    Resized $ signs on edge denoms so they are proportional to the ones on the inlays. Also outlined the rest of the inlays in black.

    Which $1 chip fits better into this set? I know white is probably the most widely used but I really didn't think it worked in this set until yesterday when I outlined the inlays in black. Now I'm not too sure.

    the $5 could use some more color and there needs to be more contrast on the outer spots of the $500.
