Update 07-04-21


Hello everybody

We are back with an update for our Coral Deskmats. We have followed the request of many and went with 4MM T H I C C. After receiving the first prototypes (black only) and thoroughly testing them we are pleased with the quality, both the print and material feels and looks A+. Our renders are a bit lighter due to our shading settings, but this resulted in even better saturation on the printed version. Check the pictures below for the real version.

An order of Coral Black has been placed and will be sold as the initial sale. The other 2 color options will be ordered after quality validation. We estimate to go live in about 1 to 2 months depending on how fast the factory delivers the products.

This will be the final line-up: Coral Black, Coral White and Coral Purple.

We also got a few requests for 5mm desk mats, because we were so amazed with 4mm we would like to ask you guys what the benefits are between 4mm and 5mmm. If the pros outweigh the cost we will definitely try it out!




Size update

900 x 450 x 4mm

Went to Sardinia a while back, and one thing that really stood out to me was the beautiful red coral. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Precious_coral

Great repeating pattern and I think this will look good on some desks. Just make sure you proto first so you get the colours right.  ;)

We are currently working with 4 factories to see who has the best print quality  :D

We just received our first sample with 3mm thickness and so far we have no complaints. If you have any knowledge of the pro's of 4mm thickness we will definitely ask the factory if that is possible  :D

Quite a few reasons honestly, with the first one being that 4mm is just the standard that the community expects at this point since it is what almost all vendors use. Due to the additional thickness they tend to lay flatter and creases "fall out" over time easier, they feel more premium/substantial due to the additional millimeter of material, and print quality/color saturation seems to be much better on 4mm+ mats in my experience.

If you need examples of why 3mm is bad just take a look at your mats and see how long they take for the wrinkles to come out, I've been using my GMK Metaverse 2 mat for over 3 months and the wrinkles still haven't gone away. My 4mm GMK Bento R2 mat had no wrinkles in it and is ultra flat, I just got it last week too.

You have convinced us enough to ask the factories if it is possible! Thank you for the feedback   :-*

Great design.
I agree with others, try to obtain 4mm (even if it means a bit of a price bump). There's been some vendors who used 3mm before, but as a result within the manufacturers they have used to cause the mat to become wavy,  3mm is not favored anymore :)

These look great, I would really recommend going to 4mm thick, or 5mm thick. I really think it's important you get multiple samples on these to make sure the saturation is proper, that seems to be a big issue with deskmats. Can't wait to see the protos eventually.

I really like the black and purple ones, I would put them on my desk personally.

3mm isn't ideal. I'd say get them manufactured in 4mm.

Love the fun coral design and the solid color edge stitching.

Just as the others above, 4mm is definitely preferred for the aforementioned reasons. Glad to see you seem to have been swayed in such.

I have my eyes set on your Dark mat, but as Louis mentioned up there, please get a proto. Blacks and greys have a tendency to give off blueish hues.

Thank you all for the feedback, because we are a new company we still have alot to learn!
We now know that the community wants 4mm deskmats and that we really need to focus on the colors of the mats.

We contacted one factory and asked to change the sample from 3mm to 4mm. They said it is possible so that is good news   ;D. Now we hope that factory delivers the best sample or the other factories can also produce 4mm deskmats.
