About

Have you ever wanted your board and card game setup to be quicker? Have you ever wished you could make those dice rolls quieter? How about using a custom graphic that you made yourself or one that you found on BoardGameGeek.com for a gaming/tabletop mat?

Grok Mats are 100% customizable, send us your custom art and we will print it for you on one of our two substrates. A Canvas that's lightweight, easy to roll-up and store or non-slip laminated vinyl, that is easy to wipe clean and has high durability. If you're not the creative type use one of our generic designs, or if we don't have one that suits your needs, let us know and we will find one or even create it for you!

Impress your friends in your next game of X-Wing, or Blood Bowl Miniatures, wow your competitors with your custom printed Netrunner mat or simply just make that game of Star Realms easier to setup.

Please note: We are not selling or offering licensed or copyrighted material(s) and are only offering our generic mats above unless sent other art/images to print. Samples in the video above are for example only and are not being offered as rewards. However we will print any graphic that is submitted to us for print as your funding reward.

Risks and challenges

Surprisingly production and distribution are neither risks or challenges for this campaign.

Grok Games is partnered and housed within one of North America's premier print providers. We are able to control manufacturing with a 'hands-on' approach and are able to begin production 'Day 1' that this Kickstarter is funded. We have also negotiated distribution with a network of courier and delivery companies meaning that you will receive your mat(s) just within a few days after manufacturing.

Depending on demand, we expect to be able to begin shipments within the first 2 weeks after the Kickstarter is funded, and expect all distribution to be completed by the end of August 2015.

The number one risk or challenge that we face is the quality of the art that is sent for us to re-produce, we will do our best to instruct you on how and what resolution to send us files, but we are not able to improve upon what we are provided with for production purposes. We will notify you if we feel your provided art is not up to standard and give you other options to choose from, this may of course delay delivery of your mat.

We also do not proof read or check any spelling on your submitted art, and any errors there-in are not the responsibility of Grok Gaming.

*please note: that we will not be selling any licensed or copyrighted material, some images shown are for example only and are not offered as rewards, but we will print any image on your mats that you send to us.

This is also our first Kickstarter project (although President Steve Ettridge, has supported many others) - and there are of course risks and challenges involved in this being our first crowd funded project. We also have another 2 projects that are ready to go after Grok Mats that will also be posted on Kickstarter for funding.
