I just wanted to do an update to a previous post about some of the custom poker chips that we were working on...they were the WSOP tribute chips that I showed the artwork for a couple weeks ago. Well, the chips are finished and in the customer's hands, and he was kind enough to post some photos on a poker bulletin board. You can see the post and discussion following by clicking here!
Some of the photos are a little blurry, but hopefully you'll be able to get a gist of how well these chips came out. They are ceramic chips with aligned edges, designed to mimic the look of a clay chip. There is also a faux "mold mark" on the faces of the chips...it's an M that stands for Miller, since that is the customer's last name. This was the first time we've worked on designing a faux mold mark, and I think they came out really nice. If you're interested in getting a set of personalized poker chips, just give us a buzz!
Happy Mother's Day!

The upcoming season should be quite interesting, as it looks like the Oakland raiders will be starting both a quarterback and running back with little to no NFL experience. There should be plenty of big plays...we'll just have to hope that there are more big plays that go our way than for the other teams!

Anyway, I think she would like a "lucky charm" to wear while gambling. I was thinking that either a gold slot machine charm or a silver slot machine charm might be the way to go. Either way, I think she'll be happy, and hopefully get some good luck to hit it big!

If there are any of you who have designed poker chips artwork that could be used as semi-custom poker chips (where the text is editable for the customer), please let me know. We're always looking for new artwork to be able to offer, and we do pay commission to the artists for sales of the chips. The artwork can be very simple and straighforward, as long as it is done well. The main thing is that customers want something personalized, and being able to pick a design with their own wording is a key to providing the product that they are looking for!

Later I went to Black Oak Casino with my wife. We took turns watching each other gamble...that way the money stretches out a little longer! I was up a little on Blackjack, but made my donation on the slots quickly. It was a nice evening out, and we headed back after leaving some money to help support the casino!

I can't see why anyone in their right mind would want to take the Raiders head coaching job. Of course that's why we got Lane Kiffin in the first place. He wasn't exactly high on anyone's list to become an NFL head coach...wait...he wasn't on anyone's list at all! Basically the reason he became the Raiders head coach was because nobody else would take the job. Once Al gets rid of Kiffin, who in the world would take the job?
Ok...so I do have the answer...me! Al...call me, email me, whatever. I'll take the job...a one year contract for a million bucks. That way you don't have to get stuck with a long term commitment, but I'm sure you'll want to renew the contract after I take the team to the Superbowl!

I'm Raider Wiz, and this is my first ever blog. I'm a huge Oakland
Raiders fan, thus the name. I am a season ticket holder, and formally
dressed up as the "GraduRaider" at the home games. My costume was a skull
mask with a cap and gown, and a foam axe with a plastic stick. After 9/11,
the Coliseum banned my axe because of the plastic stick. I still see lots
of people bring items with much more potential to hurt others...I'm not sure how my foam axe could be a weapon.
I love to go bowling, as do my two sons. My wife doesn't care much for
bowling, but she goes and watches the kids. If she ever comes to watch me,
she's always giving tips on what I should do to bowl better!
I run my own business, making personalized poker chips and poker
trophies. It keeps me quite busy, as poker is really popular.
Speaking of being busy, I better end this first blog and get back to work!
