I feel like Amazon should be there also. Plenty of mats to choose from, a lot with Prime, if you have it. If Aliexpress is there, Amazon should be too.


#3

You can use the sellers on Ali to get custom printed ones also; I recently did this for me and a friend.

The quality was about 6.8/10, fuzzy print and the mat is not as thick as id like.


#4

Yeah. I wanted to put Amazon but then there are so many known as well as obscure brands, wasn’t sure if I should really add to the chaos.


#5

Has anyone used the Shidenkai Mats before? The Glass Coating seems like a slick idea.


#6

Fair enough. Maybe just a reference to it then? Not necessarily a link. (people know how to go to Amazon and look for things.)


#7

I actually have a 120x60 desk mat from amazon.de :stuck_out_tongue: And yes, it’s a big as you think it is… (and that’s also what she said). https://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B07D4DQ7Q9/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1


#8

Sure. Adding it. Need to find a proper keyword since Amazon search is bonkers. x)


#9

lol. fair enough. “gaming mat” seems to bring up many of them.


#10

Oh absolutely. Best part is that you can get the custom printed ones in stitched versions too. That adds more life to them desk mats. :slight_smile:


#11

Tried Mouse Pads and it shows both. So I guess we’re covered for now. Unless you see different results, do let know. Shall place another link there.


#12

Totally cool idea. Not sure how our regular optical mice would perform. The optical mice usually have trouble tracking on glass surfaces. Laser mice work perfectly with glass surfaces.

This ^^ is entirely based on the forum-based discussions over the web. No idea how Shiden Kai mats work with optical mice.

I recommend InkedGaming for custom designs:
https://www.inkedgaming.com/products/panoramic-desk-pad-36-x-11 ~280*900mm
https://www.inkedgaming.com/products/extended-xl-mousepad-36-x-18 ~450*900mm

The quality of their printing is frankly amazing and they’ve recently upgraded to stitched edges with the design going over them. Plus I’ve put my older one through the wash at least five times so far and even with unstitched edges it comes out just fine, and the colors are super vibrant again when it’s nice and clean. Not to mention, they’ve got a bunch of other stuff available to add custom designs to.


Recent order with new stitched edges


My first order

Good set of options in there. Added to the list. Thank you. :+1:


#15

Has nobody done any leather desk mats? That’s something I’ve been wanting to do for quite a while.


#16

Oco tried and failed on Massdrop 2 years ago with leather desk mats


#17

Found these two on Amazon. Seems to be quite popular.
1 - Leatherology
2 - Dacasso


#18

I like em thiccc

I would be really cautious when ordering mats from AliExpress again, you have to double-check everything, including THE QUALITY. I’ve purchased one of the “mats”, uploaded 4k image, paid about 30$ for a 1200x900x3 mat. Well, it shipped and it stinked as shit, the rubber smell NEVER EVER WENT AWAY not matter if you wash it, dry it, “ventilate” in air. Threw it away.

I am really sad that other options are not available, as Novelkeys is consistently out of stock.
That would be great to order the mats directly.

Really sorry that you had to go through it. Sucks when a product takes eons to be delivered and turns out be unusable. I’ll add that special comment in the list.

Thanks for bring up this point, I missed out while compiling the list.
