Custom Playmat – Standard or NEW – Stitched Edge Options

Our Custom Playmats are praised highly by many gamers. They make the perfect choice for a custom Playmat for games such as: Magic the Gathering (mtg), Yu-Gi-Oh, Pokemon, One Piece, and many more. Printed on a neoprene and polyester finished mat with a smooth and comfy surface, making your games personalised, thematic and nice to use. Card pickup is much easier due to the neoprene rubber backing, and the smooth surface allows for easy tapping and moving of cards.

Playmat Size: Standard Mat

The Playmats are standard size 23 x 13.5 inches and 1.5mm thick. The mats roll up easily and unroll nice and flat. We have found that 1.5mm seems to be the best thickness for rolling out flat (when not rolled over tight). Our standard mats are a great choice and are a much more eco friendly option.

Playmat Size: Stitched edge

The Stitched Edge Playmats are size 23.5 x 14 inches and 3mm thick. Although we think our standard mats are great,  we have made our stitched edge mats double the thickness and with 0.25 inch black stitching around the edges, for those who are seeking a more luxury and cushioned feel. The printable area is the same size as our standard playmat to keep things practical. So your artworks will be the same for either playmat choice.

Playmat storage

We do recommend that you roll Playmats print-side out for best lay flat results. When not in use, you can store the Playmats in the card tube they are shipped in. This doubles up nicely as a storage tube with end caps.

Artwork Guide

We can help support you with setting up an artwork for printing if you are unsure. You can simply send us an image and we will crop and fit it for you and send you a mock-up proof for approval.

For those of you who can setup artwork, the following spec is used:

    I have purchased a selection of the playmats and they are excellent quality.
    I usually use ultra pro mats and these have comparable quality. Likewise the printing is extremely high quality and the colour is vivid.
    I highly recommend these.

    Great service provider, patient and communicative. My playmat turned out fantastic! Their creative input on the design of the mat was spot on and I’d recommend to anyone looking for a good quality custom playmat.

    I’ve never had a playmat for my dice games before and always used the bare table like the scrub I once was… until now. I had a custom Playmat made up for my games of Star Wars Destiny and the image I sent over was printed perfectly on a high quality mat and delivered in no time at all. Will definitely be placing more orders again in the future. Thanks Venom Battle Gear!

    I’d never ordered a playmat before and was somewhat hesitant after seeing mixed results from other providers. After receiving mine in the post from Venom Battle Gear, I could not be happier. The image is sharp and crisp, no colour wash out or fading, no loss of resolution in the image I provided – it’s genuinely flawless. Can not recommend enough!!

    I have now ordered over 100 playmats from here and this is my second review.
    I can honestly say they are beautifully printed and I have absolutely no reason to go anywhere else.
    It’s a complete pleasure buying from someone that you know always delivers quality. Cheers! :)

    I was thoroughly impressed with the mat I received, and so was my friend who got it for their birthday.
    In addition, Simon was very helpful whenever there were any problems that came up (mainly when the image I first produced was too small and deciding when it was most convenient to post the mat).
    Very satisfied all around and would highly recommend these mat’s to anyone who wishes to have one custom made.

      Thanks Myles, you are most welcome. Glad your friend was also happy with the Playmat. We try our very best to make every custom playmat print as good as possible and will advise on any artworks issues we may see before printing.

    Ordered two playmats for my card game and was not only impressed with the quality and feel of the product itself, but with the exceptional customer service! Simon called to let me know that my designs bleed lines needed editing as id measured them incorrectly. Once resolved, the mats turned up on three days and they are phenomenal! If there is ever a demand for playmats from my game I will be coming here to make them! :)

    Recently purchased a custom mat. Spoke to Simon for some help which was gladly received. Today I received my mat. And they did a fantastic job of getting what I wanted on there.

    Recently ordered a playmat from VBG. Simon was very helpful with getting the proof back promptly and helping with sizing. The mat was delivered and it was fantastic. Great quality, brilliant colours and most importantly lies perfectly flat! The mat gets delivered in a tube perfect for storage. Once you get a playmat you will never play without one. Can’t recommend them enough, so much so I’ve ordered another one! Thanks VBG!

    After looking around for a bit I eventually settled on this website for my custom playmat. Its a gift for a friend who is unable to get an official Fire Emblem Cipher themed mat. The quality of the print is stunning. Its as good, maybe even better, than official mats I own. I’m very impressed. Now I know how easy custom mats are I’m sure I’ll be back for more soon :)

    Fantastic customer service! I’m impressed by the excellent quality of the mat. It has vivid colors, looks elegant, and lies perfectly flat, which is amazing. Also, Simon was understanding and answered quickly to all my emails. I’m grateful he noticed the card rectangles were a bit smaller than the actual cards and called me to confirm if that’s what I wanted. I would absolutely recommend this to anyone who wants a custom mat. Thanks again :)

    Very quick responses in terms of communication. Through fault of my own, my image wasn’t the sufficient size to get the best quality apparently, yet my mat just arrived today and the quality is absolutely perfect. Couldn’t be more satisfied with the service. Would definitely recommend. Thanks guys!

    Phenomenal Service
    I bought two mats, one for me, one for the hubby.

    The quality of the prints, and feel of the products are A* And the communication to make sure I’d be happy with the prints was just -chef’s kiss-
    These mats look amazing, they are so vibrant IRL that I was almost worried colour would come off in hand, it did not!.

    If you’re looking for a professional quality customised playmat, I 100% recommend you get them here.

    Brilliant customer service, they notified me immediately through email, phone calling and text message to let me know if there was an issue with my image being to big and the issue was sorted with no issues.
    Mat arrived in brilliant condition and is amazing to see in person.
    Would recommend to anyone after a custom playmat

    I cannot express how good my mat looks!!

    Great customer service, Simon called me to help with a query I had regarding the artwork (wanted to supply a PDF instead of a JPEG).

    Really competitive cost for a custom mat with quick delivery too. When I need a new mat, I will definitely be using Venom Battle Gear again!

    Decided to buy one of these after a friend at the LGS got two, so I already knew it’d be a quality playmat, that said I’m still blown away by just how good it is, the printing, the materials, and the speed it was made and delivered, couldn’t ask for any better.

    Heard only good things about this site and decided I’d get some custom matts printed to upgrade on of my campaign board games that will get a lot table time coming up. Quality is amazing and was delivered very quickly. Communication was great as many others testify to as well. I didn’t receive any shipping tubing with my custom neoprene mats with the end caps for storage but it could be because I ordered 4 in one go. The shipping they did come will be enough for storage though so not going to lose sleep over it. Would definitely order from here again!
