Spilled Dragon Deskmats


GB THREAD:
https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=112230.msg3036457#msg3036457



Hello everyone! My name is Skeil, and this is my entryway into deskmat designing!

Lately, I have been entertaining an idea about designing a deskmat. As for the main composition, I have decided to pay a tribute to my countless times of spilling drinks onto my mouse pad, though through several iterations it has been transformed into something that you see now. Now, Spilled Dragon is a series of deskmats that combines organic shapes of spilled liquid and draconical motifs.

Update 03/08/2021 - Announced vendors for all seven regions!

Thank you so much for taking your interest! I can say that this thing will happen with way more confidence now. I will keep the interest check for a bit to able to narrow the colorways with far more accuracy. After that, I will see about receiving the samples as soon as possible.

Re: [IC] Spilled Dragon Deskmat - 03/11 - GB IN APRIL

Update 03/11/2021 - GB IN APRIL



Hello everyone! We've been coordinating about when to go around with doing the GB, and our current plan is the start of the April. If everything goes smoothly, I should receive the samples of the five most popular colorways (as of this moment), and approve them if they're up to my quality standards. After that, we can commence the GB!

The IC form will remain for a little while, which means you can still influence the outcome of which colorways will be produced! The current ones are - White Ink, Nathellion, Blackberry Smoothie, Age of Tea and INK. If enough feedback is present, we may or may not add a sixth colorway!

Samples Arrival & Streamer Announcment Update

A small dent, but the estimated arrival of my samples is the 8th of April. We are still aiming for the GB during the next week, so nothing is lost! The current planned date is the 9th or 10th of April!

As for the streamers, I reached out to Alexhapy and Alexotos and I'm so happy to say that they will be receiving some of the prototypes from another set of deskmats! My vendor also reached out for a third streamer called KatanaxKaji, who will be getting some samples as well for the review! As for what colorways they decided to get, that will remain a little secret

Numbers update:


There's something I would like to address and give a heads up.

I initially planned to have color dyed stitching, but the manufacturer had said that a MOQ for each individual colorway would be 500 units. We have ordered another set of samples with dyed stitching, but unless they're anything but exceptional, I think we will stick with printed stitching, the one currently is on display in current samples album.

Unless, I dunno, we magically reach close to the MOQ of each mat.
