    This is the winning design from Stage 1 so you will want to have a design that goes well with this wrap. Good luck everyone!

    I think I'd do something like this with this chip.

    DOH! I'm too slow. :wink: That is EXACTLY what I'd like to do on the rolling edge... IF the edge spots could be accurately aligned.

    I especially like the thin line of the base chip color above and below the spots. I did the "face wrap" design with that in mind for the rolling edge.

    Well done!


    Question for GOCC:
    Now that you're offering aligned edge spots, and knowing that it's difficult to do this with accuracy, how close can you get? I'm a noob, but I've read of a "+/-2 mm industry standard variance". Thanks!

    With the combination of the gap between the edge wrap spots and the edge, the white ring, and the gap between the rolling edge spots and the edge, precise alignment should be less of an issue. I think it would also work as non-aligned. Either way, I didn't take time to line up anything anyway.

    Sorry if I stole your idea, it just seemed like an obvious choice. The clean edge spots seemed to go well with the clean wrap spots.

    Maybe (big maybe) for the purple, yellow, orange, and gray chips but aligning the others would be a must IMO.

    Very curious to see if anyone is even going to attempt a rolling edge for these now that the obvious choice has already been submitted?

    No apologies! "Obvious choice" was the operative phrase! And again, I still think you deserve big credit for staying consistent with the look of the face by not running the edge spot colors to the very top and bottom of the rolling edge, i.e. keeping a thin line of the base color along the entire top and entire bottom of the rolling edge. Great execution!

    GOCC, if you haven't already done so, please take this post as a "second" (or "like") for QuiQuog's rolling edge design to be in the competition!

    Agreed, which is why I asked GOCC how accurate they can be with edge spot alignment. Their sample chips are so nice, I'm hoping that they have some new whiz bang equipment that makes it easy to get accurate edge spot alignment.

    *I'm* sure going to try. I don't know if I'll succeed, but I'm trying to come up with something unique and different that still complements the "face wrap".

    BTW, I love your Dunes homage "Three Putt Poker" inlays!

    Hi Ski,
    We are at a 1 mm variance at most

    Thanks! That's good to know.

    Regardless, I'm still working on a rolling edge design that doesn't need alignment (actually, one that *can't* be aligned), since a design that begs for nice alignment has already been submitted!
    :)

    I used the shapes of the spots to design the edge. The edge is self-contained and not meant for any alignment with the face wrap.

    Clever! I hadn't thought of that. I like it!

    And here's my take:

    SeaSide_Edge_ALL_300dpi.png

    No edge spot alignment necessary, desired, or even POSSIBLE! :happy: To those who might complain about the $1 chip having two green spots and only one brown spot... hey, remember that's the Palm Tree chip, and the fronds fan out wider than the trunk! :wink:

    I wanted to do some pseudo 3D renderings of the chips with these spots to show the effect of having numbers of spots on the rolling edge that aren't equal to or evenly divisible by the number of spots on the face, but I ran out of time, and need to get some sleep before work tomorrow. :razz:

    Anyway, hope you like it!

    Nice design. This is a better fit for the chip for me, mainly because the the aligned version feels lacking with the lower denoms.

    Nice work! Now aren't you glad I took away the obvious choice?

    Thanks. Yeaahhhh... but that #@^^! Rod may have outdone us both! :happy:

    I went through many different rolling edge designs for this thing (somewhere around 10 or 12), and I really liked some of them, but didn't feel they were "right" for the chip face. I have a nice backlog of ideas to use on other chips, though. That might not bode well for my wallet!

    I love it! With 12 votes in, it's a three way tie.

    The flop's on the table, and the viewing audience thinks it's even money.

    Rod and Qui, how many times do you want to run the turn and the river?
    :happy:
