Why Back on Kickstarter?

Kickstarter backers will receive our lowest price and be the first to fulfill! Our custom mats are 15% off the standard price, and our 24" x 14" mats are 20% off.  This is a Kickstarter-only offer, so act fast!  If you have waited for a custom game mat, now is the best time to get one! 

 How Do I Order My Custom Game Mat?

  •  Step 1- Visit BecomeOverPowered.com (or click the link below) to get your custom mat quote
  •  Step 2- Select your table shape, input your dimensions, and choose whether you want edge stitching
  •  Step 3- remember your price and select "Return to Kickstarter"
  •  Step 4- select the "Custom Game Mats" reward level and input your custom quote amount as your backer amount

Paying on Kickstarter for the full amount of your custom mat is critical to receiving your mat on time.  The money we receive from backers will go toward buying raw materials for your mat.

Any Shape

We precision-cut each and every custom game mat with high-end machinery.  Our default shapes are circles, squares, and rectangles, but we can do other shapes such as ovals, hexagons, octagons etc.  These unique shapes often take extra time in designing the digital cut file, and we want to make sure they are done right, so please contact us directly at info@overpoweredmats.com for more info.

Any Size

Our cutting equipment is extremely precise which allows us to cut to your exact dimensions, including fractions of an inch.  Our standard size range allows for a maximum width of 56" and a maximum length of 96".  However, if you have an oversized mat, we have several solutions to help, so please contact us directly at info@overpoweredmats.com for more info.

Any Image

You can upload your own image, choose any solid color, or select from one of our artwork files!  However, we are unable to print copyrighted material, which includes game boards, movie artwork, sports team logos and more.  This keeps everyone safe from the legal consequences of printing copyrighted material. (We suggest printing at a minimum of 150dpi.  To calculate the required resolution, please visit- https://www.scantips.com/calc.html)

Premium Quality

We chose to manufacture here in the United States, which allows us to have tight control on quality while also being able to fulfill faster.

Edge Stitching

Provides a premium, finished look to the perimeter of your mat while also preventing the edges of your mat from fraying.  When stitching, we round the corners of the mat to allow for a clean and consistent stitch pattern.

Artwork

We created 60+ pieces of unique artwork suitable for even the largest of tables!  Scroll to the bottom of the kickstarter page to see thumbnail images or click the link below to view our artwork on desktop. 

When Will I Create My Custom Game Mat?

Shortly after the kickstarter is complete, you will receive an e-mail with a unique one-time-use code and a link to our custom mat creator online tool.  Using this tool, you will be able to customize the graphic design of your mat however you want!  

After you have designed your mat, you will use your unique code to reduce your mat price to $0. Follow the remaining steps to submit your digital print file, confirm your address, and pay for shipping.  Our order update system will allow you to track the manufacturing process of your mat, notifying you when your mat is printed, cut, stitched, and fulfilled.     

 $50k STRETCH GOAL UNLOCKED!!!

This includes 2 new images by Rene’ Aigner, 2 new images by Ethan Brown, and 1 new image by Denise Jones!

Shipping is included for FREE with all add-on purchases.

Shipping Information (Important)

Due to fact that we manufacture each and every custom mat here in the United States, it is quicker and less expensive to ship single parcel via UPS, including to customers outside of the United States.

The shipping prices listed below are current estimates based on the most common mat sizes.  The exact amount you are charged for shipping will fluctuate depending on your specific mat size and weight.  Mats that have a width of 48" or more are often more expensive to ship.  

You will be charged for shipping after the Kickstarter campaign based on your address and your mat's weight and dimensions. 

Customers outside of the United States will be subject to their country's duties and taxes.

Shipping multiple mats? Please visit the FAQ for more info. 

There are many more colors available online for our game layouts.

Retailers and Licensed Mats

If you are a distributor, FLGS, or retailer looking to purchase numerous mats at a time, we are eager and excited to work with you all!  Please visit the FAQ section of the kickstarter page to learn more.

If you are a game designer or publisher, we have some truly exciting and beneficial ways in which we can partner! Please visit the FAQ section of the kickstarter page to learn more.

Who is OverPowered?

OverPowered is a family-owned and operated local business just outside of Birmingham, AL. It’s a project that has been in research and development for nearly a full year now, taking up every spare hour and weekend for me and my wife who both work full time. My wife and I have fully funded this project ourselves.  

Thankfully, we have had a huge helping hand in creating our mats by working with countless truly phenomenal collaborators that we are extremely appreciative of. Without the support and guidance of family and friends and the expertise of industry leaders, we wouldn’t have been able to make all of this possible. Thank you to all of those who have helped us get to this point! 

Risks and challenges

Although unforeseen risks and challenges may arise, we do not foresee any obstacles in fulfilling this campaign. We have done extensive testing, and the trial and error from that testing ultimately produced an exceptional, final-quality product that we are proud of. Now that the manufacturing process is complete, we will need to order raw materials in bulk, finish the custom mat creator online tool, and start fulfilling orders.

The Kickstarter campaign will allow us to better understand product demand and provide the necessary funding to source the amount of raw materials, warehousing space, equipment and staff needed to take this product into full production.

Without you all, this project cannot become a reality. We genuinely appreciate your support and will do our best to not only meet but exceed expectations as soon as we possibly can.
