Got my deskmats today. The large one looks great, but what's up with the messed up aspect ratio on the smaller one? All the "circles" are clearly oval. It looks like the middle portion of the large deskmat was resized horizontally to fit on the small deskmat. Pretty disappointed with that...

Oh no that looks terrible...

This should not have happened, the sample I approved was not distorted at all like the one you received. Let me see what I can find out! Stand by.

Thanks for looking into this! I was thinking there's no way you OK'd something like that.

Gonna talk to my manufacturer about this. Not sure if this is a one off error, but I wont be able to find out much until we receive the deskpads in the states (can take up to 30-40 days to get them).

But we will get this figured out.

Interesting, how come we got them that much earlier in the EU? And thanks for looking into this! I'm hoping this is not a widespread issue and I can get a replacement. Not too worried about the money, I'd just love to have the smaller pad too.

Yes, we have to get ours shipped by sea because of the weight. EU proxies get theirs shipped by air because of the location.

Shipping speed. EU is able to get these shipped by air. Ours are shipped by sea because of the amount of orders along with the weight.

Just FYI, I reached out to MyKeyboard.eu and asked them to check the extras they have in stock:

Quote from: Yulia@MyKeyboard.eu
Iíve checked and seems like all the small mats have same problem.
I am going to contact NovelKeys to see what should be done for replacements. He didnít receive them yet, so Iím not sure he knows about the problem yet.
As soon as I have more information I will come back to you.

Update!

I've received the second round of color samples after the adjustments I had to the teal and yellow.


Round 2 Teal (Right) - Nailed! this is exactly what i was hoping for.


Round 2 Yellow (left) - I had asked for a bit more saturation, and they've done that admirably. However it takes it off the mark.


The Final Four
My comments from the first round were that the teal and yellow needed a saturation boost. They both felt like they fell short just a bit when compared together. After placing in the updated teal the original yellow provided feels much more appropriate, and i feel confident in these colors!

We're there peeps!

Theyíre still navy blue. Check the stitching for reference in the pictures. The stitching is black.

Some bad news. We received our order of the smaller (450x400) deskpads. They are all skewed. We have not come to a solution with the factory yet, but we are emailing everyone who ordered from NovelKeys with our different options.

I apologize to anyone who ordered the smaller deskpads. Its frustrating for sure.

If you didnt order from NovelKeys, please reach out to your proxy as I am in contact with them working on a solution as well.

We do not allow the transfer of GB spots. We can cancel your order, however if its needed.

You guys are gonna like the cables. 
I got mine today, as I had gone through Spaztic Cables directly.  I needed a custom length configuration that the NovelKeys GB couldn't account for, otherwise I would have gone that way obviously.  But, I can tell you you won't be disappointed when you get yours.

sorry for the delay in the update, i was overseas traveling. I've spoken with Keyforge and the caps should have his attention next week after he completes his most recent sale. Judging by the timeline of the set shipping, i'm hoping the caps arrive around the same time or shortly after.
