If you need some help deciding how to choose the images you like, or how to design your deskmat, then take a read below for some ways to make sure your deskmat turns out amazing!
Using your own images or artwork: If you have images already selected that you love, then great! The best images are sized at 1920 x 1080 px, but really we can use any images as long as they aren't to pixelated.
Finding images: We recommend starting with a classic google image search. Use keywords such as "my picture HD wallpaper". After that, try a normal web search, and scour some websites for images you may like. Remember to right click "save picture as" to download the image without any loss of quality.

Designing your mousepad...
Now you have all the images and artwork gathered that you want to use in your design, what should you do next…
CUSTOM DESIGN: If you know exactly how you want your deskmat to look, and have the design skills to do it, then go for it! Remember to keep your art to the size of the mat you want to order. Our deskmats are your canvas - go wild!
ONE IMAGE (for the best results): This is definitely the easiest way to go. Simply submit the one image to us, and we will scale it to your chosen mat size, then it’s off to the printers.
MULTIPLE IMAGES (great for our larger deskmats):
Use multiple images of the things you love! Create a collage of your images, or creatively assemble them how you like
Photoshop: If you know how to use photoshop, then you can go ahead and create a canvas that is sized to the mat size you want to order - and assemble all the images however you like.
Alternative methods: If you don’t know how to use photoshop, then we recommend using Canva.com to assemble your images to how they will appear on your mousepad. Simply create a new canvas using the dimensions of the mousepad size you want, and then arrange the images on the canvas to your liking. You can also add a background, text, and filters to enhance your design.
