I've been thinking about getting a customised set of Poker chips to use as money/counters in various games. I am though not an expert in terms of chip type/quality etc.

The Poker chip used in Memoir 44 as the Russian Commisar token I guess is about the quality I was hoping for. Can someone tell me what this chips is in terms of clay/composite or whatever, and weight (is it as simple as weighing it?)?

Also the pictures on the chip I am presuming are stickers, if so what is the particular type of finish, as they seem quite durable, or is the image somehow integrally printed with/on the chip?

Thanks.

G.W.

It would be accurate to weigh it, if you have a small mail scale or something else sensitive enough. It felt to me like a 9 gram chip. It is made from composite material. Any 11.5 gram to 9 gram composite chip should be from the same material. This is the most common chip found for sale on the internet lately.

IIRC, I believe that the images there are directly printed on the chips. Not the most common or cheapest printing method, but definitely the most durable.

I advise against getting denominations printed on poker chips. It makes them less flexible. I like to use white chips as the lowest value in a game, and red as worth 5 whites. if I printed them at 1 & 5, this would work for things like PowerGrid or Age Of Steam, but would be tought for games where the base unit used is not 1, but 100, 1,000 or even 5 or 5,000.
