Mousepads remain one of the most popular branded gift items - and for good reason. Padded mousepads are used every single day by a person who sits at their work desk. For every working day, your brand or logo will be visible on your prospective’s desk. Even people who work on laptops tend to use an external mouse for ease of use. Mousepads clearly and prominently display your branding message right at the user’s fingertips on a daily basis.
Promotional mousepads are often distributed at conferences, gaming conventions and schools alike. A large branding area allows branded mouse pads to convey messages in a number of ways. Options are endless, personalised mouse pads can range from a name to favourite quote or something as fun as a to-do list.

What is “bleed”?
Bleed is the area around your artwork that is trimmed off. This allows your design to look as if it was printed to the edge, even when the cutting alignment was slightly off. Your bleed should always extend to at least 3mm.
A mousepad is a surface for placing and moving a computer mouse. A mousepad enhances the usability of the mouse compared to using a mouse directly on a table by providing a surface to allow it to measure movement accurately and without jitter. Some mousepads increase ergonomics by providing a padded wrist rest, although the benefits of this are debatable.
During a 1968 presentation by Douglas Engelbart marking the public debut of a mouse, Engelbart used a control console designed by Jack Kelley of Herman Miller that included a keyboard and an inset portion used as a support area for the mouse.
