I've made several mouse pads. I order mouse pads and transfer paper from: http://www.transfertechnology.com/
I usually size them by setting my picture software (pictureit) to a print size a little bigger than the mouse pad. I have a paper cutter and use that to make two straight edges that will go on a corner of the mouse pad and use them to line it up. Sometimes I practice this with a picture printed on plain paper to get the centering right. Cover the entire mouse pad with the transfer paper, it will be more even that way. I have a sewing type ironing board that I've taken the pads out of so I can iron the entire mouse pad at once. That helps to get the heat even , if you have problems with this you might try taking your finished product to a t-shirt store they may let you use their heat-transfer machine. Hope this helps, if you have questions just ask.

thanks.....the only real problem I had was making sure the pix was the right size. I even typed in my dimensions but they didnt come out the same. I got it done and it came out awesome. Next time however I will use your tip for centering it. Also will print the practice sheets in Band w so as not to waste my color ribbon....


I cant wait to make more. I am working on a design for the Dis board......to trade for pins..
