The Complete Guide To Creating A Custom Mousepad

WANT TO CREATE THE PERFECT CUSTOM GAMING MOUSEPAD

Well you have come to the right place! Here's the outline: The Mouse Pad

 

MOUSE PAD IMAGE OR DESIGN

Hopefully you have an understanding of what you want on your mouse mat.

However if you don't we suggest finding a design based on your current interest such as a game, movie/series, hobby and anime which is a very popular choice.

If you are looking for a design that is timeless we suggest searching for designs that are abstract, liquid, minimal, patterned and textured. These all end up making cool mousepads that you won't ever get bored of.

1. FINDING THE DESIGN FROM THE INTERNET

The most popular choice when designing your dream artisan mousepad and defiantly the easiest is getting a design/image of the internet, this can be from a wallpaper website or most commonly google images will be used. Make sure the image you end up using is high quality otherwise you are at risk of the custom mousepad looking pixelated.

2. USING / CREATING YOUR OWN DESIGN OR IMAGE

The best way to create your own design is use software such as photoshop or a free online editing software such as Photopea which we highly recommend. Another option which is useful for mobile users is our mousepad customizer that can be used when clicking on the customise button on the custom mousepad product pages.

If you're dead set on a design and completely ready, then its just a matter of uploading it to our customize and playing through the different stitching colours until you find the perfect match. (Make sure you keep important aspects such as text away for the edges as it risks being cut off, follow our image guidelines.)

GET YOUR TAPE OUT!
SIZES

The most important step will be picking the correct size for you! Now it's all down to how much desk space you have available to utilise. If you are looking for something small we recommend the Small or Large mousepad. However what's the point in going small. We live by the rules of "Go big or go home!". In all seriousness if you want to get the most out of our mousepad customising experience why not get an extended mousepad after all this will mean you can incorporate both your keyboard and mouse all together on your mouse pad.

(WARNING our Extended MAX mousepad isn't for the faint hearted. This beast of a mousepad will take up the whole desk without a doubt!)

INDUSTRY DISRUPTING OPTIONS!
STITCHING VARIENTS

The ability to changing stitching colours. This is perfect for adding the finishing touches to a mousepad design. Instead of having stitching that takes on the colour of the design we have taken the word customise to a whole different meaning. This is the ultimate finishing touch to desk setup and in our opinion it's a must have if you care about having the coolest gaming setup. Check out our customizer to see what stitching colours go hand in hand perfectly with your design. We will be adding more options very soon!
