hi

the four corners of the counter are clipped.the gamers use finger nail clippers .some think it makes the counters look better.it also helps the boardgamer move the counters easier.

Sure, any counters can be modified in a graphics editor of your choice to have a "clipped" look to them. You'd just need to save them in a format that supports transparency--ideally PNG.

I haven't been clipping, but I've been beveling and drop shadowing.
