Deskmats
« on: Tue, 14 May 2019, 06:56:03 »
Hey guys!

I'm after a desk mat and was wondering if you could show me some nice designs you guys have or suggest.
I like thsi old/retro Cherry desk mat, but don't know where I could buy.
However, do you have a nice mat?
Can you show yours? Looking for an inspiration here:)

I would check out Novelkeys, I have two or three deskmats from them and love them.

Cool, thanks. I looked at their mats, some look nice but out of stock.
I'll keep looking.

Like stated above novelkeys is probably your best bet. They have the right amount of squish and support for a deskmat. That being said, If you want a functional one steelseries has a pretty nice deskmat that I used before I got my novelkeys one (Qck XXL). Now I just have them stacked with my novelkeys NASA on top. Keep an eye open on Drop.com too, they have some nice mats that come up sometimes.  :thumb:

I've heard that playmats for the Pokemon Trading Card game work pretty well for this.

I'd just choose a keyset first, then go with a deskmat made for it

Go with something that matches. Mix and match doesn't really work for keyboards.



For example, like the image above.

I reccomend getting SA Chalk and then putting a light or colourful deskmat.

Note: This is not my keyboard nor deskmat ): .

If Chinese doesn't scare you, there is some choice on Taobao :
https://cool-goods.world.taobao.com/category-1323343339.htm?spm=a312a.7700824.0.0.2df12f47CaaUHV&search=y&catName=%CA%F3%B1%EA%B5%E6

Doesn't load for me. Everything in TaoBao is in chinese and i can't read that....

I can read a bit of french though, however spanish would be much more useful.

I did a custom oversized gaming mat through inked gaming: https://www.inkedgaming.com/products/custom-oversize-playmat as a gift

and it really exceeded my expectations, it was surprisingly thick, quite large, and very well made for being custom.

when I get a bigger desk I'm planning on getting one for myself. Probably something with an IBM logo on it.

I checked that The Key Company - they have one (thock) in stock for $20, but delivery would be $24, murder! :D

Dixiemech also does a few designs, including the matching sets of keycaps + deskmats.

I've picked up this Mito Godspeed mat, but will be delivered in July. That is quickest one I can get and that I like:)

Still hunting for a GMK Cafe deskmat, which would match perfectly my desk etc.
