39mm x 3.4mm x 10g
Printed on solid high-density, single composition poker chips, our custom ceramic poker chips are high end chips similar to the poker chips used in many casinos worldwide. The image is actually embedded into the material of the chip. It is not a label, sticker, or painted/printed on top of the chip. These are not the metal-slugged plastic chips that are used in the majority of home games.
They are available in two finishes; The default finish is Linen which is a smooth finish that can be compared to Chipco brand chips. The second finish is a textured finish that can be compared to Nevada Jack brand chips. If you have purchased BR Pro chips in the past, you have the textured finish. Please indicate in your follow-up email if you would like the textured finish. Otherwise, you will receive the linen feel chips.
Preferred file formats: *.psd (Photoshop), *.ai (Illustrator), *.eps (Illustrator and other vector artwork software), *.jpg
Color: CMYK, but RGB can be okay
Artwork must be 300dpi or higher. We can not fix low resolution artwork, so it is best to send the highest resolution you have available.
Size: 39.6mm for the face of the chips. For face artwork that is to be printed on the entire face (no white ring around the outside), I suggest adding a little extra bleed. Just an extra 1.5-2.0mm will be fine. 124mm X 3.3mm for the edge.
If you need basic help with artwork or need more information on the specifications please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you can not create your own artwork or do not have anyone to create it for you, there are a few options. There are many extremely talented designers that visit poker chip enthusiast forums and sites such as Chiptalk.Net. You could also try some of these sites:
- iStockPhoto - Great resource for photographs and artwork to incorporate into your poker chip design. On this site you purchase artwork by the piece instead of a subscription. Each purchase is only $1-5.
- Clipart.com - Subscription based. The subscriptions range from one week to one year, so if you do not regularly need access to artwork you can get the one week subscription and download what you need.
- GetAFreelancer.com - Need help with artwork? At this site you can post a job and get quotes from thousands of graphic designers. You will get A LOT of responses, so make sure you check out their portfolios and contact the applicants before giving the job to an artist.
There is NO EXTRA CHARGE for different images on the front and back or for text on the edge. There is a 30¢ (30 cents) per chip fee for aligned edgespots due to the time consuming nature of the task. I do not recommend trying to duplicate the looks of a clay chip anyway. What's the point of wasting all that space? This is an opportunity to create a beautiful printed design on the full face of the chip instead of a smaller inlay!
