Plenty of Options with Promotional Mouse Mats

By: Tina_Rinaudo
Many people might think that a mouse mat is just a mouse mat, and that they’re all pretty much the same no matter which kind you buy. But are they? In fact, when it comes to printed mouse mats, your options are just as varied as they are with any other promotional item, perhaps more so.

•Textile Choices

The most inexpensive mats are commonly made with a foam rubber base with a fabric surface bonded to it. High precision or hard top mouse mats are usually made from plastic or PVC, and some include a rubber base that provides the mat with a non-slip surface. Plastic and other synthetic materials are definitely good options if you want a durable mat that can be wiped clean easily (this not only makes the mat easy to clean, it also means that it’s likely to be used for longer since dirt can be removed easily).

•Color, Color, Color!

Your color options are as varied as you want them to be. All mouse mat prices include the cost of at least a single color design, and in most cases a four color process print can be had at a slightly higher price. For rich and vivid color, Color Soft and Metallic Luster mouse mats are excellent choices. These mats are printed using innovative techniques that create rich, vibrant colors that are incredibly eye-catching. The Metallic Luster mats go one step further and add a gold or silver metallic sheen to the surface of the mat for a truly stunning effect.

•Customization Options

Regardless of the type of mat you choose, you can customize it with your own design. However, depending on the mat you want, you can also choose to have a custom shape created to your own specifications. This can be a great way of making a really distinctive item that’s not only functional, but fun to use as well. Buy buying Picture mouse mats, you can even allow the recipients of your gifts to customize them, too. These mouse mats are created with a special pocket inserted between a foam rubber bottom layer and a hard top layer, so the user can insert their own personal photo between the layers.

•Multi-functional Mouse Mats and Desk Sets

Multi-functional promotional items are particularly
popular because of the value they add, in terms of price and of the longevity of the item. You can add value to your gift in a variety of different ways. Consider mouse mats with wrist rests, either bonded to the mat itself or as a separate item—these are particularly useful for your staff, as they help to prevent injuries that are caused by repetitive and prolonged mouse usage.
Other multi-functional mats include those with integrated clocks or calendars, mouse mats that include a small pocket for business cards (again, these are great to give to your staff), mouse mat and coaster sets, and desk sets that include not only mouse mats and coasters, but a variety of other desk top items too, such as business card holders, pen pots, and even mobile phone holders.
