Custom Nexgen Poker Chips
We decided to use Nexgen chips with custom labels because folks have reported that they work well with labels in our forums. Note that with Nexgen chips the center area is larger than with some other chips so the labels should be the .98 size labels, not the .93 size labels.
A good rule of thumb for label sizes is as follows:
Recessed Center Chip like the Nexgen Poker Chips - .985
Groved Circle Line Chip like many 11.5 gram Composite Poker Chips - .925
Folks tend to favor the Nexgens for customizations because they have a nice edge and they look good with custom labels.
Price Comparisons for Custom Nexgen Poker Chips
Custom Nexgen Chips are very cheap. The chips themselves are only about 22 cents each and the labels are not very expensive either. If you want to do custom poker chips and you are on a tight budget then Nexgen Poker Chips with custom labels should be on your short list of considerations.
Custom Nexgen Poker Chips Appearance
The appearance of the labels depends on the original artwork and the supplier that makes the labels. Fortunately we've done the research for you! Lynbark has been doing this for a long time so they are a great choice for the supplier. There is something about the Nexgen chips that makes them look good with labels. Don't take my word for it, check out the photographs on this page.
Custom Nexgen Poker Chips Quality
The quality on Nexgens is better than the 11.5 import chips but it is still not as good as the expensive chips like Paulson chips. That said, once you put a label on the chip you lose some of the feel that was on the surface of the chip so the feel of the chip becomes less important once labels come into play. Many people like the Nexgen chips better than the 11.5 composites, maybe it is because they work well with labels and the edge spots are nice.
