Poker Chip Blog

An informative and hopefully enlightening blog discussing Poker News, Poker Supplies and mostly Poker Chip Design.



Just some News and Updates

SALVATORE APODACA - Thursday, October 01, 2015

We have just listed the sample sets for the Rounders Replicas. That's right. You can now sample them before you place that order for these beauties. Just remember it takes 2-3 weeks for us to fill a larger order so give yourself plenty of time to order your chips before your big tournament 

Next on the agenda, the Kickstarter campaign is completed. We just have to print and ship your goodies. They should ship in about three weeks time right before Halloween.

To celebrate the new marijuana laws in at least three of our states including our beloved Oregon we will be producing a year one legal marijuana commemorative chip. Design should be done in November. I'll keep you updated.

Most of our stock ceramic poker chips are available in 39mm, 43mm and 46mm versions. If you have an interest in this please email us ahead of time. You may want to consider that storage options are limited but not impossible for the larger 43mm and 46mm chips.

We will also be highlighting chip designs for intriguing cities throughout the world that should begin arriving during the holidays. This will include Portland (OR), New York (of course), New Orleans, Austin, Las Vegas, London, Amsterdam, Barcelona, Paris, Rome, etc. We're going to try and do a city design each month. Again, I'll keep you updated.

That's it for the news for now. There's always something brewing around here though. Thanks for reading.

The forums dedicated to serving poker chip enthusiasts were a huge help in completing this project as well so it would be amiss if I didn't mention them.
Poker Chip Forum at http://www.pokerchipforum.com/
Chiptalk at http://www.chiptalk.net/forum/
and Home Poker Tourney at http://homepokertourney.com/

Social media played a huge role in our success especially Facebook and Twitter

Thank you all for making this a reality especially for our earliest backers who have been so patient and so supportive (denoted by ** before their names) and our largest donors (denoted by three plus signs after their name).

We will submit the artwork hopefully after the weekend. It takes Kickstarter a little time to collect all the funds from the backers. But we should ship the final product next month. I'm really looking forward to getting this started. Thank you all again.

Help Us Fund Our Kickstarter Campaign!

SALVATORE APODACA - Tuesday, August 18, 2015

This is our first Kickstarter campaign. I'm actually pretty excited about it but we're going to need your help. Of course not everyone needs to seat 40 people for a poker tournament but we are hoping that even if you aren't our target audience for this project you might still pitch in a buck or more.

Check it out...

Tournament Seating System Kickstarter Campaign

We are seeking funding for our newest Tournament Seating Chips. This system helps you to seat players using the tools of the trade – poker chips. Each seat has a numbered chip. Each table marker has a color or theme. So you can easily seat up to 40 players with ease. For random seating you simply lay all your seating chips face down on your main table or a side area and they all look exactly the same.

A player can just pick a chip when he or she registers. The chip will have his/her table color/theme and his seat number. It can be recorded by the registrar and the player can be seated. It's a simple, random and transparent system. 

It's also attractive and a great conversation starter. I mean check out the theme - heraldry. Who can resist dragons, lions, double-headed eagles and sexy mermaids? But really we're just hoping this will help some of our customers who need to seat players efficiently for tournaments or other games.

Check out the artwork and the setups below...

If you are interested in the product or you just want to help us fund the campaign follow the link at the top of the article. Or maybe you know someone who might be interested in this project. You can share the campaign using this link...
