Custom Poker Chips

 

 

 

Here's a brief education regarding poker chips. Sit down- take a deep breath....

1- There is no such thing as a CLAY poker chip. All clay chips would be fired- brittle- and break easily. New material composition for making  chips mix calcium carbonate ( chalk) in with abs and other ingredients creating a composite chip. If it feels soft and sounds dull- it's call a clay chip. It isn't.. but who are we to try and redefine the internet and poker chip definitions.

2- The official casino weight of a poker chip is NOT 11.5 grams. Simply put- when China started making abs chips- they were too light. So they added a metal disc to give weight to the chip. The weight just HAPPENED to be 11.5 grams. Real casino chips weigh in at about 10- 10.5 grams-- we know because we manufacture casino chips.

3- Sticker vs. Inlay. Paulson, Blue Chip Co. and other casino chip manufacturers PRESS the printed decal INTO the  HOT chip material when it is HOT- so the image bonds to the chip.

We currently cannot mimick this process- so our inlays are applied using a permanent adhesive which is UV cured and bonds to the chip permanently, over time.... or under UV light.

Looks nearly identical- and allows us the privelege of making small order custom poker chips- both affordable- and possible.

4- Paper labels wont last. Period. If you want a TRUE quality inlay, you need an indestructable lamination OVER the inlay. Thats why PGI uses polycarbonate floor lamination. It costs a fortune- but its worth it in the long run- and it's what got us known in the first place for hi quality inlays.

5-Ceramic Chips are NOT ceramic. Theyre a polymer blend which includes ingredients mimicking ceramic. Ceramic chips allow FULL graphical freedom over the ENTIRE chip- including edge.

Graphics and text-on-edge can be printed onto a ceramic chip. PGI is arguably the 2nd largest ceramic poker chip manufacturer in the USA. We use our own proprietary mold- we manufacture our own blanks here in the USA including 39mm,43mm, 2 inch( dealer button) sizes in addition to plaques ( cheques)


Our blanks are accurate to within .005 inches. Simply put- theyre the BEST money can buy.

6- SO whats the BEST poker chip? Thats up to you. Some people like abs, some clay, and some ceramic. It's all personal preference... and its ALL possible... at PGI.
