How It's Made - Custom Mousepads

Created On: 10/29/2023

Custom mousepads make great gifts.

Here is how we make them.

The first step is image review.

For mousepads this is really easy.  Mousepads are not super big.  They are 7.68 x 9.25 inches.  So most images will print great at that size.

Once the image is ready, we lay it out into a print file.

Then we flip the image.  Like this:

The image needs to be reversed because it is heat pressed from the back of the print.

Now that the image is flipped we print it on dye sublimation paper.

Then we cut it out.

We turn on the heat press and let it get to around 385 degrees.

Then we take the blank mousepad, line up the printed dye sub sheet, and put some dye sub butcher paper over the print.

And then we pressure lock the heat press onto the mousepad.

It heats for 30 to 40 seconds.  Then we release the press.

At this point, the mousepad is really hot so we take it off the press and let it sit for a few minutes before handling.

Then we package it, make a label, and its ready to ship.

If you are interested in getting a custom mousepad, you can do that here.

Thanks and if you have any questions or need any help, just let us know!

Holiday Shipping

Holiday Shipping Times & Cut Off We are currently able to ship all print types in time for the holidays, but the sooner you order, the better. Shipping companies are advising to ship packages for holiday delivery by December 16th. Many packages shipped after the 16th will still arrive in time for the holidays, but they are not guaranteeing it. While we do not have full control over the shipping and transit times, here is our best guess at the realistic cutoff dates. West Coast: Order by December 16th Central: Order By December 20th East Coast: Order by December 21st
