The Catmat



[UPDATE] 04/07/21

Hello! My name's Ben or Bven and this is my debut into deskmat design and hosting group buys.
Recently after noticing there wasn't enough cuteness I decided I would try to make something of my own and that has developed into what you see here.

It does look quite nice, but is there just a regular view for the mat?

I think it could also use a little design in the corner to spice it up a bit. Maybe a sleeping cat? Or like a cat sitting upright licking it's paw?
Looks good other wise though, glwic

I am going to be totally honest in that I think this is a bit boring/lazy for a standalone product. Could do something really cool like a custom Neko Atsume-esque scene.

That being said, I am sure others will like it, and since MOQs are so low for deskmats, you shouldn't have an issue getting to MOQ.
