Following are the reasons that I greatly dislike Paulson chips. I will try to keep emotion out of my reasons. Responses, please also keep emotion to a minimum. 1) PAULSON CHIPS ARE OVERPRICED. I have seen prices greatly exceeding $1.00 US for each chip. There has got to be 10c of material, 5c create/process, 10c printing, 5c overhead in each chip. This comes to 30c/chip MAXIMUM. The Paulson company is making buttloads of profits off of all you loyal buyers. 2) PAULSON CHIPS ARE TOO FRAGILE. I have seen many threads about gouges, chiped chips, color transfers between chip colors. The responses indicate that these issues are simply accepted. 3) PAULSON CHIPS ARE DIRT/GRIME MAGNETS. I have a few samples and have also used many casino chips. Casino don't clean their chips very often. These chips seem to get dirtier faster than any other chip. There is no easy way to clean a thousand chips. 4) PAULSON CHIPS MUST BE OILED OFTEN TO LOOK THEIR BEST. This should be done before shipping from Paulson. Paulson should come up with a method to re-oil if you guys are simply going to accept this fact of ownership. There is currently no easy way to oil a thousand chips. 5) COLOR CHOICES ARE LIMITED. Come on people, there are nearly infinite color choices possible on the color wheel. Look at what others are offering. Limiting colors is a political choice, not a reality. Now I must add some portion of emotion to this rant on Paulson chips. I go back to number 1)PAULSON CHIPS ARE OVERPRICED!!!!!!!!!!! They may sound good when toddes onto the pile, but you've all been schnookered into buying the most expensive, not necessarily the best. For the price we should get better quality chips. OK, here I choose the fine Paulson company as the butt of my rant, but in fairness they are not the only chip manufacturers with these limitations. End of bile.
