Based on requests from my amazing customers I have designed a selection of gaming mats to be launched through this Kickstarter project, and I will also make available some of the best selling mats from previous projects.
The gaming mats are made from high-quality polyester felt with artwork that has been sublimated into the material. This is a high tech process commonly used in sportswear for high contact sports, due to its detail and durability.
These mats can be folded, rolled, washed and ironed. Extremely portable and easy to store.
Sizes are approximate and in feet e.g. (3×3 feet = 36×36 inches = 92×92cm).
For more information about Ceri Design and the manufacturing process of these mats please see 'About Ceri Design'.
These mats are based on a real life section of Venice for authenticity.

You will receive a size 3x3 for every £19 backed or a size 4x3 for every £21 backed.
You can back for multiple mats, simply adjust your pledge to include the extra cost.
This is very simple to do, trust me! At the end of the Kickstarter, you'll be able to state the number of mats required and their sizes using the survey or a section I will be setting up on my webstore ceridesign.com.
Hopefully, this table below will help you work out how much to back;
UK - £3 (flat rate)
Rest of the World - £7 (flat rate)
Many of you will notice that due to having a flat rate on this Kickstarter the more you purchase the more you'll save on postage.
If you're not sure how much to pledge just send me a direct message and I'd be happy to help.
Just let us know what size grids or hexes you need and we'll add them into the design free of charge.
Ceri Design is a small company that I set up in order to be a part of my favourite hobby, tabletop gaming. The goal of the company is simple; Create affordable gaming mats and accessories at a high level of quality and service.
I'm no stranger to Kickstarter, having successfully funded 7 projects thus far and delivering quality products on time to my backers. I have also sold many gaming mats through my online store to customers the world over and all have expressed positive comments about the quality of their mats and the service received.
My gaming mats are made from a high-quality polyester felt. This gives a fantastic surface to game on. Many gamers have commented on how much they enjoy the feel and finish.
The artwork is sublimated, a process I learned through my experience working within the sportswear manufacturing industry. During this process the artwork is dyed into the material (much like a tattoo) for a fantastic finish that is more durable than standard printing.
Please note, that due to the nature of sublimation and how monitors and mobile screens are calibrated, colours may appear slightly different to what appears on your screen. I have attached images of the finished print articles in order to show as close as possible the finished quality.
Risks and challenges
As I have already stated, I have previous experience of running Kickstarter projects and have successfully delivered on what I have promised.
There is no risk of this project not going ahead if funded, but there could be reasons for a delay in the product if one of the following unlikely events happen;
1) The printers have an issue with printing and pressing the mats. This is unlikely since they have multiple printers and presses, but stranger things have happened.
2) The fabric supplier runs out of material. If this were to happen it would simply delay production until the stock comes in again. I haven't run into this problem thus far as they have always been able to supply my orders (and I've made many) and have done so very quickly, but if they do run out at the warehouse they're usually fully stocked once again within a matter of weeks.
In short, I have a very good relationship with my fabric supplier and printer. They are both very experienced companies that have won awards for their service and are very professional in delivering my products on time. They are also based in here in the UK, so by backing this project you're not just supporting me, but also British industry.
I'm a very reliable individual that takes pride in his work and the last thing I want to do is tarnish the good name I have been able to build for Ceri Design.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
