Not exactly hip or trendy, but a mouse pad does it’s job; it doesn’t break; it’s literally within a few feet of your prospect, client, or employee for much of the work week; and easy to ship in mailers or in bulk. I love the comfort of soft surface and that I can imprint a full color graphic edge to edge. At 8″ x 9.5″ this is a large canvas for you to get creative. Very practical to use as a calendar too!  I would also encourage the 1/4″ thickness, it feels like a gift and not a giveaway.  Priced between $3.15-$4, pending on quanity, this particular one is RAD Approved!
