Yes, you can! Order the full custom playmat then send us the playmat artwork through e-mail as an attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org or send the file to our dropbox email@example.com.
Please note: The size of the image area for the mat is 1/4 inch (7 mm) bigger than the mat size, the bleed room is to avoid any white edges on your mat.

24" = Min 1726 / Max 7275

Please avoid putting anything “major” within this bleed room.
If you provide the artwork, we don’t provide a preview unless you: a) wanted to put a template on the design or b) we have to reshape the image.
Can you setup my mat for me?
If you don’t have a single image, it takes 3-5 working days (maybe more if the designer has to render images) to create an initial layout. If you have photos and images you want to use please email the details and we will discuss your options. The designer will usually email you right away letting you know what they can do and will give you a timeframe on when you will be receiving your first initial preview. Please make sure you provide us with a working email and make sure to unblock us in your email set-up. (If you don’t see any emails from us within 5 working days please email us as soon as possible, but don’t forget to check your “Junk/Spam E-Mail Folder”)
Please note: We cannot start production on the personalized playmat until we get the confirmation and approval from you to print it. We won’t manufacture your personalized playmat until this process is complete.
What are the accepted file formats for artwork?
Files in JPG, PNG, PDF, TIFF and PSD formats are recommended.
Are there any limitations to what I can and cannot print?
Yes, our company policy forbids us from printing any image with extreme violence, blood, gore, and any form of pornography. Using copyrighted images is also forbidden. We will ask you to change the image if we feel that your image falls under one of the categories.

Why I did not received a confirmation email after I created an account or placed an order?
