Most people are used to poker chips as just being red, white, and blue circular discs with fancy edges. That is, until they see casino poker chips where are custom poker chips for the casino as they will definitely have the casino's name and sometimes they also have designs.

Avid poker players may wonder if they, too, can get custom poker chips. While it may have been a possibility a long time ago, it is now easy to get custom poker chips.

Poker Stars Direct sells poker chips that are plain and designed. They can be ordered just like they are shown on the web page, but the great thing about the poker chips from Poker Stars Direct is that they can also be custom poker chips.

There are already tons of colors of poker chips and lots of different designs. Some have colors around the edges. Others have patterns around the edges while there are even more with colors and patterns around the edges.

These are the basic poker chips. They can then be customized with inlays. Inlays are the center design in the poker chips. There are many preprinted options to choose. This is great for those who are not creative or do not have their own logos or pictures. Artwork can also be submitted. A quote will be given as long as a picture in gif or jpeg format is included. It is only when the chips are ordered that a specific format - Illustrator, Correl, or Photoshop - is required at the size of 340x340 pixels at 340 DPI.

The pictures can be accompanied by text as well. It just be included on the design. The inlays are actually printed on the poker chips. They are not stickers that go in the middle. They also are scratch resistant vinyl with a waterproof coating.

If a design is not wanted on the inlay, there is also hotstamping. Hotstamping allows the denomination or up to three characters to be printed on a poker chip. Hotstamping can be done on either one side or both sides of a poker chip. The denomination and the three characters (such as initials) can even be printed on each side of a poker chip.

The denominations available for print are 5, 10, 25, 50, $1, $2, $2.50, $3, $5, $10, $20, $25, $50, $100, $500, $1000, $5000, and $10000.

Hotstamping can be in gold, silver, or black. The same artwork specs apply for hotstamping as for the inlays.

Both inlays and hotstamping require a base that has a blank center.

These are great options for getting custom poker chips. They are the perfect gift for a poker enthusiast. They are also great for companies whose employees have poker games. By getting these chips with the company's logo, there is no mistaking that they belong to the company.

The custom poker chips can even be great advertising. Order some and leave them around the place or even throw them during parades like it is Mardi Gras in order to get the word spread about the company.
