I have been searching and searching for a play mat that was large enough for a game of X-Wing and would also fit other games. I was just about to make my own using craft foam and rubber spray when someone sent me a link to Conde systems in Alabama. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=41kaU6MysYc

Has anyone heard of this company or have you dealt with them? They have a 36" x 54" mousepad material up to 1/4" thick for only $20 and they can print on it for you. I am trying to get a price for the printing. Again, if you have had dealings with this company, I would appreciate a review. If I hear nothing negative, I will place an order for a space themed mat and let you know how it turns out. Have fun!

Conde is a reputable supplier for the due sublimation industry. From what I understand, they are primarily a wholesaler. They do also sell equipment and provide support for them, so if they are willing to print the mousepad mat for you, i'd assume that they are able to provide good results.

I looked into Conde for this as well, and didn't find anything too helpful.

Since then, I have found HCD gaming supplies.

I just ordered a second mat from them. I love the first one I got, and since they are 3 by 3, the second one is to extend the table space for Epic Play.

The two mats I got are linked here at Miniature market. Super high quality thin mousepad material and I LOVE THEM!

The first one I bought:

The one shipping to me soon:

It's pricier, but probably more durable, and easier to transport:

Also, I think the pattern is really great.

Cool patterns, I agree, but how durable does a mat need to be?

I guess my question is mainly: What kind of abuse do you tend to give your mat? Its in play or in a tube, so I expect any of them to last for quite a long time.

Personally, I like the smooth variant of the HCD ones. The Quivers look a little... Hairy? The texture of the mat looks like it would wear with use faster than the neoprene. But, if it's the same as casino grade, maybe its decent.

At some point I need to go back to one of the FLGS and figure out where they got their mats, they have the start and asteroid ranges printed on, which makes setup really easy. I also would love a larger mat with the ranges printed for epic play.
