I am feeling very sad.

I understand people are getting a little tired of the huge amount deskmat GBs and I do feel bad about contributing to that perceived problem.
But, this is a great way to get our bearings straight as a new vendor with a lower risk product compared to a keyboard or keycap set.
I think the design is great and I don't think its a bad thing to put out more accessories that can accompany keyboards. This is why I went out of my way to ensure this has a wide array of color options for any setup.

Also, we are offering free shipping as an incentive for one of our first GBs, meaning we will likely make very little or no profit from this. I genuinely look forward to seeing how people will use these to match their setups, and I'm trying my best to get this product out there because I have faith others will like the design  :)

I hope those that aren't interested can refrain from being negative just because its "another deskmat GB".

deskmat

If this is referencing "deskmat" vs "desk mat", then I know what you're saying. Seeing "deskmat" irked me at first because it is grammatically incorrect, but I do think it looks better combined into a single word rather than having a dangling "mat" all by itself. Sorry if I sound insane :)

They might have just been referring/making a joke out of the fact that clouds are often affiliated with being "sad". I could be wrong though. I just don't see why anyone would care about desk mat GB's, in any amount..

I have seen a negative response to other deskmat ICs and GBs on Geekhack before which is what led me to respond that way. I know the sentiment exists, and I'm pretty sure that is what sam was referring to.

I'm glad you like it! Thanks for the support :)

These are lovely. Great work.

I think it's great that we are getting so many deskmat GB's. It really doesn't hurt anyone to have a lot of accessory options available, especially in our community which is growing at a incredible pace. It also gives a fantastic outlet for artists in our community and from other communities to participate and be recognized and compensated for their incredible talents by means of a functional product instead of relying on other, less reliable means to earn for their talent.

There will be giveaways soon! And considering how small Vala Supply is currently, you stand a decent chance of winning hehe :D

I agree wholeheartedly! Especially the point about artists being compensated for a functional product - I love this about deskmats. It's just a canvas for their art, but instead of being hung in some random corner of the house, its right on people's desks. I personally like the idea of having 4-5 deskmats you swap out depending on mood, similar to a desktop wallpaper. Why not change things up every so often? It's not like you don't have 4+ mechanical keyboards already if you're on GH...  :p

Just updated the OP with some awesome new renders by Noxious.

His attention to detail is stunning, you should zoom in to check em' out ;D (look at the little hairs in the stitching ooo)

There will be more renders coming soon that include keyboards to get a better idea of how these mats would fit into your setups.
