I produce custom poker chip labels for friends and charity tournaments that I am hired for, and was wondering what your thoughts might be regarding the best type of label to use.

I recently did a set for a friends tournament using the Standard Gloss Laser label and they came out nice. Now I need to do a set of smaller labels, and was wondering if I might be better off with the weatherproof polyester label. Looking for durability more than waterproof, although there are usually drinks at the table. This is going to be for my 'showcase' set so I want them to look their best.

Don't really need 8000 labels, wish I could get a sample page of a couple of types so I could check them out. Hate to blow $50 to find out I got the wrong type of label.

Any thoughts?

Thanks,
Lou

I am using an HP Laser printer.

For this batch I'm looking at the.875 circle. 1000 chips for this run, maybe more in the future...

I previously used your 1" white gloss for Laser printers, but the inlay on this particular chip is slightly smaller.

Thanks,
Lou

For best durability, it is important that you select "Labels" as the media type when printing onto these labels to make sure that you get the best possible fusion of the toner from your printer to the material.

I hope this information is helpful. Thanks.
