This project is to launch my new wave of SubF-X gaming mats that feature artwork that is compatible with fantasy sport tabletop games such as the popular Guild Ball.
They measure 36x36 (inches) and have been designed to be both visual and practical for the gamer, leading to quicker setup and a more interesting play surface.
These mats are designed and manufactured in the same way my SubF-X gaming mats were from my previous Kickstarter project and those sold on my website.
By using high quality felt and my knowledge of professional sublimation techniques I can offer a great quality gaming surface for a compatitive price.
Add text or logo!
Want to make it unique? I can print your club/tournament logo or text into your mat in a location of your choice! Great for clubs, prizes, or making yours stand out from everyone else! Just add £5 to your pledge for each mat you want customised and send me your chosen logo or text (I can help with the design if needed).
The artwork is sublimated. What do we mean by sublimated?
Put simply dye sublimation enables you to print whatever you like, however you like, directly onto the fabric. Solid colours, graduated colours and even photographs can be dyed into the fabric. This printing technique uses the combination of heat and gas. When the plain material is added the temperature climbs enabling the pores to open in the fabric and the dye sublimation ink is immediately transformed into gas. This allows the gas to permeate the garment.
Once the heat is removed the sublimated ink will turn back to a solid form, allowing the pores in the fabric to close leaving the ink embedded directly into the heart of the material. Dye-sublimation is the latest advance in permanent printing, just like a tattoo, the ink actually impregnates the fabric, making its effect permanent and therefore unaffected by washing or ironing.

This will hopefully be my 5th successful Kickstarter, and as you'll see from my track record, I deliver what I promise and I do so on time!
I have experience within the design and manufacturing industry and have a good relationship with the printers and pressers I use for my products. Like me, they are based here in the UK. This avoids any shipping delays or poor communication from dealing overseas.
I truly believe that for the price, you can't find a better playing mat. Being a tactile person I'm not fond of the vinyl mats available, and find the rubber backed gaming mats expensive for casual gamers. My goal will always be to offer the best product I can for an affordable price!

Risks and challenges
The risks are low. Unforseen problems at the printers could be the largest. I am fully prepared for fullfilling the rewards for this project and none of this is new to me. If any problems were to arise you can have confidence that I will keep everyone in touch regarding the solution.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
