Which Mouse Pads Work Best For Me?

Whenever you buy a mouse pad, it’s important that you match it up to the mouse you intend to use on it first. Have you ever had a mouse that was unable to work on certain mats and/or surfaces? Mouse pads that are dark in colour tend to work best for the optical mouse, for that reason, it’s advisable that you take the time to find out what will work best for your mouse.

It’s possible for you to get a customised pad, this way you can be sure that you’ll get the best possible performance with your mouse on it. You can also have your own personal images printed on to these customised mats if you so please. The best pads are ones that are comfortable to use, even after great periods of time.

You may find that the more comfortable mats cost significantly more, but in essence, for the added comfort, it’s well worth the price. If you get RSI, you’ll realise how much of a horrible experience it can be. There are some mats that have little gel pads on them, these types are well favoured amongst many people. The gel pads can be used to support either your wrist or arm.

From personal observation and experience, I have found the plastic mouse pads to be the most uncomfortable for both your wrists and arms. I recommend a pad made out of cushioned material as standard. Ultimately, you might find that the best mouse pad for yourself is fairly expensive, but this shouldn’t be enough to put you off. It’s important that you opt for comfort over everything else.

Here are two personalised mouse pads that I recommend that you take a peek at:


This mouse pad is promotional in nature with a stress-relieving, soothing gel-like overall finish to its surface area. It’s possible to enhance the current artistic value of the mat by adding glitter or by shaping it into cool figures.


This pad is probably the most sellable in Europe. You can find these promotional mouse pads everywhere. Many companies opt for this pad because it’s possible for you to print high definition imagery on the surface of it for little cost. The surface area of these pads is covered with an overlay making it difficult for the print to wear off. The standard hardtop mouse pad comes with a 3mm form base, but there are a number of versions that are much thinner.
