Initial FAQ's on the chips!

Correction to weight

1. The weigh in at 9 Grams approx +

2. The Cross Hatching detail is EXCELLENT!

3. The Labels from the manufacturer are textured and semi glossy. If you print a 1/4 pie or 1/8 pie chip with a white background label note that the center inlay portion of the chip should be printed in a color like grey or tan etc. as the printed area will hue through the label. On insert printed chips where the chip body is all one color the label will take on a slight hue of whatever is printed underneath. If your inlay is other than white you'll be fine. easiest to show you the example:

Thicker labels were suggested by Tina but I fear spinners with that solution so simply printing the inlay area solid or leaving it white is a great solution!

4. The recessed inlay area is 1", if you get labels somewhere else like at Gear Labels (Highly suggested and better quality) remember this. Unfortunately it DOES NOT change the price.

5. They feel great, The sound great! and no, they are not TRK's and cant be mistaken for them.

6. These chips all have round 1" inlays and any casinos inlay designs past or present are altered to reflect that the chips are re productions, in addition there is a small injection mold dimple at the edge of the chip unlike the real Clay Composite chips.

7. The weight of these chips is nowhere near that of genuine historic TRK chips which weigh between 10 and up to 12 grams depending on lead content.

8. While we've noticed that there has also been made by someone at another chipping site, a Top Hat and Cane mold, take notice that even a novice in the hobby should be aware of the differences between genuine historic TRK's or Paulson's. Regarding these reproductions, serious chippers should already know the differences but as with any hobby the buyer is the one ultimately responsible for knowing real from reproductions. (These re-pros are easy to distinguish) and take care to ask questions and use a payment system with buyer protections if there is any doubt.

9. If ordering these chips there is NO RETURNS. While the company producing them has great customer service and will correct any mistakes made on their part if there is a problem with your artwork that you provided or you simply don't like the finished product you will not be able to return them. Review your specs and artwork carefully to avoid any unpleasant results. PokerChipper will not be responsible for errors on the buyers part, but, we will advocate for you in regard to manufacturing defects or errors.

10. You must be a member in good standing at PokerChipper.com to order or purchase these chips. Ordering cannot be done directly through Tina and must be done here in the Cap Dash group buy thread.

This thread will be updated as time goes on.

If you've ordered these please chime in and review them and give a little advice I may have overlooked or suggestions!

Great looking and excellent quality!
 
Initial thoughts about these:
- They feel like some of the best ceramics I've ever felt
- Really like the "moreso" squared edges
- Cross hatching helps big time
- No spinners whatsoever
- Definitely think that a colored inlay is needed or grey so you don't see through if you are going with the original inlays
- Colors come out nicely
- The actual mold helps out a lot
- Sound is nice, feel is nice (I can't stop shuffling them)
 
1st post here. Didn't even know this place existed until just a few days ago when I learned about Himewad when he sent me a sample set of his "Ceramic Cap-Dash" River Rat set

...... If you print a 1/4 pie or 1/8 pie chip with a white background label note that the center inlay portion of the chip should be printed in a color like grey or tan etc. as the printed area will hue through the label. On insert printed chips where the chip body is all one color the label will take on a slight hue of whatever is printed underneath. If your inlay is other than white you'll be fine......
I didn't notice on his River Rat set until I read this here and looked back. It's one of those things that you most likely don't notice until either you do or someone points it out to you and then you can't "un" notice it. I am seriously considering designing and purchasing a set of these, but before I do I am just curious if it would be possible to either not print the area under the label or just print it white rather than print it the base color of the chip. Seems to me that would work just great and remove any hue of color coming through from the color of the chip under the label.


While we've noticed that there has also been made by someone at another chipping site, a Top Hat and Cane mold....
Has this already happened? I have yet to see an example of this. If it is done, I'd love to see it...

Agree with everything here + I can't help but mention that there is little doubt (at least in my mind) that this type of chip (Tina Hybrid Ceramic) is the best chip available today for anything less money than RHC. These things look great, they feel great, they sound great and they are 100% customizable & they are less than 1/2 the price of RHC's which are arguably somewhat better. Fantastic Value!
 
It's pretty subtle, but it is there. As Dan has said:
the printed area will hue through the label.
it is a little hard to see in a pic, but here is a close up of Himewad's River Rat's chips where the orange 25¢ has a slight orange hue to what should be a white background inlay/label where the white background $100 has a much more pure white to it.
 
You can have the center whatever color you’d like. However you design the chip is how they’ll print it. I seem to recall Danny mentioning that Tina said to use a light gray for the center.
 
Just like I thought ... I barely notice any difference at all between the white and the bright orange. I think the fact that the labels have a little bit of a glitter effect helps. The solid color printed on the chip recess is probably the biggest factor, though.
 
I agree. The 1/2 pie. 1/4 pie is quite noticeable that’s why I adjusted my art on those chips to have a dark grey color printed in the recess area. That way it’s not bright white. Looks more realistic.
 
I just discovered this place, but I guess better late than never, right?

I have a lot of interest in another 3rd? order of these & would even consider being the go to so Dan does not have to do it all and answer all the questions/reship etc. I know I am new here, but have been on PCF for about 3 yrs and have ran multiple GB's in the past both there and on old Blue wall.

We should try making some faux shaped inlays with the hybrid sticker. I mean, the chip is printed, and the label is printed … shouldn’t the colors be pretty close?
I am sooooo interested in this.

........ I'm having 3 more molds made, Sawtooth, Hub and COG!!!!!!
any progress on this?

in the works! But Tina says colors wont be close :(

I can't decide how I feel about this. To me, seeing a bit of the color bleed through on the label sorta makes it look even more like the chips are a true half pie, quarter pie or hex pie. I worry that if you have a darker or bright color as the chip base, but then use a light color under the label, that a tiny bit of the light color might show around the edges of the label or on the wall of the recess. So I think even if I did do a light color center under the label, I would still want the actual base color to extend a little bit into the recess. Like maybe 0.2mm? Have there been posts in another thread where someone has made this change since these posts here? I'd like to see how they turned out.
