Default Custom Chip Labels?

Hi all, I've seen on Ebay auctions for "custom chip labels", which are basically peel and stick labels which fit onto the plastic composite (e.g. "dice striped") variety of chips most commonly found on Ebay. Has anybody tried these? What is the quality like? Sounds like a pretty cheap/easy way to customize these types of chips without having to resort to hotstamping. Plus, it seems relatively easy to get your own "custom" designs as well.

I have had them done by someone on Ebay, I think his name was Slamdunk or something like that, they're good, but only as good as the design you create or use one of his designs. The quality is nice and it makes an otherwise standard boring dice or suited cheapo 11.5g chips way cooler. I decided I needed to customize my set so I ordered after designing different designs for each color. He was quick and very friendly and helpful. The labels have held up quite well after 3 games. I don't see any problems, hardest part was sticking them to be centered perfectly but from a distance that doesn't matter. I even obsessively went ahead and got some custom playing cards made from this guy who's great called yourplayingcards.com and he provided great service for a deck of plastic playing cards, a little lesser quality than Kems but pretty good too....check the picture

this is his current auction for 3/4" labels, contact him and he will probably do 1" labels like mine.

I just made a quick graphic using PaintShop and then used MS Word to print onto the labels... you can download the template from Avery... I figure it cost me 10-15 bucks to label all 500 of my chips.

personally Im not sure they are a good idea, the stickers can only last so long.... couple of months, maybe even 6-12 months, then youl be left with sticky chips

I could of course be wrong
