Prototypes
After feedback from the community and inspecting prototypes ourselves we have decided to go with a colored border.
A colored border gave the desk mat a much cleaner look overall and matched the Serenity theme we were aiming for more closely.

I prefer the black border personally. It frames the picture very nicely.

That said, where is Aether Hemera located? US-based? I'm concerned about shipping cost.

Yes, we are based in the South-East US. We do not have any proxies at the moment so all shipping will come from there. But we will do our best to get good shipping prices for other regions.

Great mat but there's no way shipping will be reasonable. If they all come from SE USA

Artwork is great, I think it would look best with a white border if possible?

We realized that this would probably be an issue for people outside NA to purchase this mat, so we are looking into using proxies or other vendors for different regions.

After having spent months planning a trip that I haven't been able to take I am much too familiar with the viewpoint.

Uhh. This just went from a good looking mat to something I reasonably can buy! EU proxy <3

Well I am Canadian so this doesnt help
Shipping from USA->Canada is significantly worse than Canada->USA

Yes, we understand that kind of stuff might push the price outside of many peoples acceptable ranges, so we are talking to vendors in other regions to see if we can prevent that. Well post updates on that when we have more details.
