There are four basic types of mouse pads in order of price for lowest to highest. They are fabric surface, hard surface, window, and note paper. Let’s go through them all.
Mouse Pads with Hard Surface
The heavy duty mouse pad is the top of the line product. They are the most popular hard surface pad we sell and have the highest perceived value. They are durable, for long life and have the best image quality. The brilliant image is protected under a durable textured surface. They are made in 1/16, 1/8 and 3/16″ thicknesses, typically in quantites of 100 and up.
The Duratech lightweight synthetic rubber mouse pad is an economical alternative to the heavy duty pads. They are 55% lighter which reduces shipping costs. Since they are Latex free, they are especially well suited for hospitals and other healthcare institutions. Still, the image is brilliantly detailed and protected under a durable textured surface. The Duratech pads come in 1/16 and 1/8″ thicknesses in numerous sizes, stock shapes and custom sizes.

Another option would be to add a business card window so that your sales force can insert their business card. When placement, a vertical or horizontal window size may be used, however consider that a 3/4″ minimum glue area is required on all closed edges.

All mouse pads are initially cut to ordered size, however, since mouse pads have a natural rubber base and the sublimation process uses high heat and pressure, the dimensions of the final product may vary somewhat. This shrinkage and/or growth is a normal and expected effect of the sublimation process.
