There seems to be enough interest in the other merch discussion to justify starting one solely dedicated to Gaming.SE mousepads. I'm researching them right now, but since I know next to nothing about mousepads, I figured I should ask the community what kind YOU like to use.
Do you prefer for soft or hard top mousepads for gaming purposes?
Are wrist rests essential?
Is a specific shape more preferable over another (circle vs. square)?
Can you recommend a site for custom ordering high-quality mousepads? I'm doing some searching on my end but a lot of these sites look very Internet ca. 1999.
Do you know of any sites/attributes that we should DEFINITELY avoid?
Design wise, I think we're leaning towards having a classic question on them, meaning they will match the proposed t-shirts. Another idea is having a cheat code for a popular game (Minecraft, StarCraft II, another that I'm not thinking of). Which of these designs is preferable, or is there a third option we are overlooking?
