You may think all mouse pads are created equal, but they are not! Find out why. 

Mouse pads are long-lasting gifts. With everyday use, a mouse pad typically lasts 5 to 10 years before it needs to be replaced, and this is true whether you are a gamer, casual user, designer, or office user. The mousepad sits there right under the wrist all day. What other product in this industry has this long of a lifespan? What better branding opportunity can you get? 

All mouse pads have a soft, grippy rubber bottom, so they do not move around when we use them, but did you know that the top of the mouse pad can vary drastically? Your options include the run-of-the-mill soft fabric, precision weave material, plastic upper, or a premium metal upper like aluminum.

How to select the best mouse pad for your client?

Each style of mouse pad offers unique benefits and appeal to different customers. These differences include the look, feel, size, and the client’s potential budget. Of course, the higher the client’s budget, the more flexibility provided to gravitate towards the more premium quality mouse pad.

Unique Material Mouse Pads – These mouse pads can come in various materials.

Wireless mouse pads need to be plugged into a power source to charge a wireless device. These mouse pads are most commonly UV Decorated and produce an impressive visual impact.
