I know Artscow has standard size (about a foot as the largest dimension) mouse pads.

Where can I find truly oversized (like 25"+ x 16"+) mouse pads, and can we get art printed on them?

I know these things can be manufactured - for example they were handed out as 'top 8' prizes in the Android:Netrunner tournament.

The question is, are there any print on demand type shops where we can upload artwork and make our own?

Note: I know where to find them 'plain':

These size in at about 35" x 17"

How to get art onto them is the question.

Another base option:

36" x 18"


All of these are pre-arted... obviously you can put art on them... But how?

Up to 14"x24" stock - may come larger if you contact them.
May require 25 unit minimum.

Wouldn't the Artscow doormats work? I haven't seen one in person, but the description says neoprene backing....which sounds to me like mousepad material.

Large one is 19"x29".

Small on is 16"x24". And they have a few other sizes.

Nice find. Are they a good surface for cards? When I envision a doormat I think of large texture to catch the dirt on my feet.

There's some conversation on this topic in an image comment thread for a Netrunner playmat:

For the short of attention span, this looks to be the best option: http://www.inkedplaymats.com/products/custom-playmat

There's some "plate mats" and "bar mats" too, which seem to be a bit thinner, but otherwise the same idea. the plate mat is 12"x18" and only 12.99

I believe that would be too small.

Anything less than 24" wide is going to feel very cramped.

Here's a $5 off referral code if anyone is ordering play mats on inkedplaymats: http://curebit.com/x/ffE5Gm . Good once through 9/25.
