STEP ONE

CUSTOMIZING YOUR MOUSE PAD

Tips when selecting a mouse pad

We find its best to do this first. Once you have a mouse pad size selected, it makes it easier to either find or create the best image to print on it.

A few things to keep in mind:
Make sure that the pad size you want, will fit on your desk, and accommodate your keyboard and mouse comfortably. If you have a larger keyboard, perhaps order a larger size so you don't run out of room

Going to be travelling with your mouse pad? We recommend only choosing stitched edges as your edging option, and a smaller pad size that's not to heavy to carry around

MOUSE PAD SIZE

We currently offer SIX mouse pad sizes for you to choose from. They are:
• SQUARE: 30 x 25 cm / 11.8 x 9.8 inch
• LARGE: 70 x 30 cm / 27.5 x 11.8 inch
• XL:
80 x 30 cm / 31.5 x 11.8 inch
• MEGA:
90 x 40 cm / 35.5 x 15.8 inch
• ULTIMATE:
100 x 50 cm / 39.3 x 19.6 inch
• SUPREME: 120 x 60 cm / 47 x 24 inch

Some sizes are not available for certain products.
Our most popular sizes BY FAR are MEGA and ULTIMATE pads. If your want a specific size that is not listed above, send us a message and we can make it for you!

MOUSE PAD THICKNESS

We currently offer THREE mouse pad thicknesses to choose from:
• 2mm (.07in) - Our cheapest and lightest option
• 3mm (.11in) - Our bestseller
• 4mm (.15n) - Most supportive

If you intend to be spending long hours with your mousepad, then we recommend the thickest option. This means your wrists will be fully supported and comfortable for hours on end. If you're not worried then, perhaps stick with the standard thickness, which is 3mm.

Features to finish

Color stitched edges

Our classic mouse pad finish. Seal up our creation with beautiful stitched edging for a rigid and durable desk mat. The cherry on top - we color match the stitching according to your design for a amazing blending effect. This is standard, but black stitching is available - just leave us a note with your order
