Here are some sample pictures for the gaming mat for the terrain I've been working on. The terrain now has a theme name too - Ancient Worldship

Yeah, postage isn't fantastic for something like this. Will have to wander down to the post office and get it checked. At least it won't be coming from overseas though.

Looking good!
Looks like it is lying nice and flat with no lifting or anything so neoprene and heavy enough to flatten itself out?

Yeah, it's solid enough, I had to pull at the edges to get it flat, but that's more because the friction with the floor stopped it moving and flattening itself out. Pretty happy with how it's come out.

Don't be selfish with your gaming information Sir, these things should be shared between gamers in the community, please provide the manufacturers link, so we may investigate and utilise if we find it to be worthwhile!

It's not hard to find some on your own. Just look on Alibaba or Aliexpress. You'd still need to provide them with a high fidelity graphic for production anyway, as they don't use designs that were provided by other customers.

Link please?

Yes, I recently had a 4' x 4' neoprene gaming mat done by Deep Cut Studio, I provided them with a 300dpi 48" x 48" image of an old west town (no buildings, just the roads and surrounding dirt area), with a main thoroughfare and a side road. I had it printed using their new online order system. I am very happy with the result and it was processed the day after I ordered and courier shipped - very quick turn around. A little expensive, but a long term gaming investment. and well worth the money in my view.

I'm always keen to investigate other options, so please kindly provide a link to the company you use, be friendly and generous and share your gaming resources so that others in the community may benefit smile.gif

Getting a one off printed isn't going to be cheap from China either. The discounts only come into effect when you're ordering larger quantities. The sample was around $100 AUD or so give or take. Which is comparable to the RRP of a mat anyway.

I'm aware we are in a community based hobby but.....I'm just going to put this out there....

You do realise your on a business page & he's trying to run said business yeah? Totally he can give you/anyone the info (the fact he hasn't 3 posts later my suggest something though) ie. He doesn't make money if he gives up all his sources.

Just my opinion, maybe I'm wrong (or this is some in joke between you)

Back on topic --- Nice mat BTW

Neoprene gaming mats are never going to be cheap smile.gif

I'm guessing yours is a 4' x 6' mat, is that correct? Is that $100 for the mat only, or does that include the postage costs to you?

My above mentioned Old West 4' x 4' mat was about $135 AUD from memory, including courier postage. Postage was almost 50% of the cost, so if I had asked for a lesser postage, it may have turned out to be $10 - $15 cheaper, but postage from Lithuania is always going to be more on the expensive side, I guess.

If you could provide a link to the company you used, I'd greatly appreciate it, I'd like to investigate their services and associated costs, thanks smile.gif

Mate, it's kinda rude to ask a business for information about their suppliers or product sources.

Krefey has already offered some information about his prototype and some general advice on where he went to get this one done, so if you're serious about it then I'd suggest following that information and spending your time doing the research to find a company offering these prototyping services - Krefey isn't sharing this as a 'hey I got a cool custom product', he's sharing it to generate awareness and interest in the mat as a potential product for sale, ie. investing his own time and money in making it a retail product.
