Don’t think custom mouse pads are sexy, or at least they can’t affect the bottom line? Think again – every PC out there with a mouse is likely to have a mouse pad. That’s big sales potential – if you know how to take advantage of it!  

Our mousepads are made from Neoprene, and have an anti-slip bottom. At 4mm thick and with soft, superslick cloth, they allow mice of all types to glide across them. 

But don’t forget, these mouse pads are a canvas – fully printable and ready to feature the best, wittiest and most eye-catching designs.

Superslick, fully printable mouse pad

Our mouse pads have a superslick cloth top that’s resistance-free and should track well for all of those quick movements. How do we know? This is the same material used on many professional gaming custom mouse pads – and these guys take this very, very seriously. Trackball and optical mice shouldn’t have any issues gliding over this pad. 

The entire mouse pad can be customized and printed on – whole pad is the print canvas for these custom mouse pads. Of course, make sure there’s nothing important near the edges of the design – like words or logos – before the test sample arrives so the the look and feel can be verified. If it looks good, then it’s all good!

Stable and secure

Another great feature of our custom mouse pad is the rubber back. This anti-slip measure will make sure all of those quick movements across the pad don’t result in the pad shifting too far away from the user. What happens when that occurs (other than total disaster?) The mouse falls off the pad, potentially costing them that game-winning head-shot!

Top 5 questions about custom mouse pads answered

The best selling mouse pads with a design on them are usually between $10 and $15 at large, online retailers. We have custom mouse pads below $6, and that could be lower if you’re signed up for Printify Premium, our awesome monthly subscription plan that passes discounts on our entire catalog to you!

Yes! Of course! You just need to order a sample product once you’re happy with your design and save it. We recommend it, just to make sure 100% that your custom mouse pad is exactly the way you want it to be!

The colors offered are always changing, but there’s a wide variety of colors to choose from – including the always popular basic black. If you’re looking to place a logo in the bottom corner, then you should be able to choose from any of the colors and find a good one to compliment what you’re looking to achieve design-wise. Remember to always look and check back, we’re constantly adding new colors and products to our catalog!

The answer is: not much, except the size. Gaming mouse pads might be a bit larger to allow for the extended range of movement some games require. Now, we’ve observed that most gamers don’t go out of their way to purchase a larger mouse pad, so we think our custom mouse pads will be good for either normal or gaming use!

It’s not difficult! When it gets a bit dirty, you can use warm water and dish soap to clean dirt and spots off your pad. You don’t even need to soak the whole thing, just use a soft bristled pad if you’re finding some spot a bit troublesome. If you take care of your mouse pad, it will take care of you, for many years to come!

Customized mouse pad design tips

Custom mouse pads for home

Home mouse pads can be for the family computer or a gaming computer that a serious gamer uses for hours every day. Gaming related messages or designs will probably sell well for these audiences, as will animation style cartoons or other gaming culture references. If there is a popular gaming character’s quote or a quote from gaming like “Head shot!”, this could be something that impresses the audience.

Home users are a bit different, but by far, gaming is the biggest segment for home users. Gamers appreciate ironic humor and references to culturally relevant films like Star Wars or the X-men movies.

Cartoon characters and funny quotes are good as well, you might think of something like “It’s a trap! Don’t turn it on!” for a funny gamer inspired quote from Star Wars. 

The other market is family users, and these could range from moms to the whole family, so make sure to explore all the possible niches during the custom mouse pad product launch.  If the audience is moms, then try something a little cuter and aspirational for a quote, as a lot of stay at home moms are squeezing in some time on the internet between their children’s naps or while they’re at school, trying to make some extra money for the family!

Custom mouse pads are the equivalent of an inspirational poster, but one that someone can put on their desk and give themselves that extra message to motivate themselves every day. Don’t discount the clever, informational mouse pad either. 

 

Some more examples include a silly elephant with glasses and headphones getting down to work, a motivational quote to help the user get through another challenging day, or a calendar with key dates for the year or half-year on it.

Personalized mouse pad calendars that remind people of special, niche events throughout the year (or are just a standard calendar) work well, and so do time zone maps or even maps of the world in general. If someone’s job requires this type of information regularly, they might want to put it on a mouse pad for easy reference.
