    Pokemon Custom Mats???

    I have seen Custom Made mats for other Cards Games Like Naruto, Bleach, Yu-gi-oh, Dragonballz, etc... Im wondering if there are any Custom Made Pokemon Mats out there.


    If there were custom made pokemon mats would you like or dislike it?


    Just wondering.



    Let me know. Thanks.

    I dont think so. Infact, I asked once and these guys said there wernt any. Although, you can take designs to places and have ur own mat printed!

    Yeah I know that. I just wanted to know if anyone has seen a custom mat for pokemon. I've seen them for other games.

    There is a guy who can make mats at the store that I go to. There mainly yu gi oh mats but I asked him if he could make Pokemon ones and he said yes. I'll have to trade him yu gi oh or something I guess. I was going to find some neat pokemon pics to see if he could make one for me.

    Do you think I should try and get one made?

    Rather than post a link to a commercial site, I will just say that if you do an internet search using the words "Pokemon Mat", you will find a play mat for a two player game that has been around forever still available for purchase.

    Did you draw those? Thats cool. I wanted to have card zones on mine.

    Pokedad - I know those exist. I was talking about ones that people made. Custom made ones.

    I have one that was made with iron-on transfers. Rumor has it, you can make them, but you can't sell them or give them away as tournament prizes - copyright infringements - unless of course you get PUI and/or TPC permission.

    Personal experience, that's all I can say.

    Let me clarify. Producing AND selling copyrighted products is enfringement. Selling something you didn't produced yourself (ie., given to you, purchased by you) isn't usually illegal, although, the copyright owner could probably take legal action to confiscate such illegally produced products.

    Ok that makes sence. What about if I traded for it? What would happen to the person that traded it to me?

    So does that include my own sketches of copyrighted material that I choose to sell on Ebay? Would I be infringing upon copyright issues?

    I don't think so, I would think that could be classified as fanart, which as far as i know, is totally legal, but don't 100% quote me on that

    Yeah,I have to agree with you there. I'd LOVE to get a hold of one of those.

    For all of you who haven't seen it, its made out of the same stuff mousepads are and the artwork is very professional. Kinda looks like some sort of paint job you'd have done at a store to a shirt if I recall correctly.

    Look everyone, Sigma's posting! *cough*

    Anyway, though I miss the old fabric mats of olden days (I still have mine, though its seen better days), there are a few options I can think of to make cool-looking custom play mats.

    You could simply draw and color your own, then take it to practically any larger office supply store (Office Max or Staples, for example) and get it laminated.

    You could take it a step further and design one on computer, then take it up to an aforementioned store and have it printed/laminated. I'm actually considering this now. Hey, send me a PM. I can probably come up with a blank template, then apply designs. Photoshop rules like that.

    i now have found a place (Local) that does that sort of printing. i bought a blank playmat off of e-bay, took the mat to them and they said they could do it, but it is EXPENSIVE!

    for the mat,shipping,and printing it came to almost $75 a piece.....i got 2 :D

    i am picking up later this week when i dont have to work, and i will let you guys know the results.

    Great designs blizzard. Id love to get the one of the gardy's. I know there has to be someplace that can make a professional mat like you see for naruto,yugioh. I gotta look into that because for the longest time i also have been looking for a mat like that for this game. One of my friends last year got a naruto mat like that and i envied the **** out of her for it.

    Sorry, Fanart is technically illegal as it is an unauthorized reproduction of an image with a copywrite. Although it is not usually prosecuted, it can be if the company so chooses to.

    In addition to my earlier post - I have some new information for those of you who're interested in making custom mats:

    My local OfficeMax has a large printer which prints off a roll of paper. 36" is the maximum width which you can print, and the sky's the limit for length.

    I have been working on a template in Photoshop that is 12"x24" (though, this feels kinda cramped with slots for 6 prizes, 5 bench, active, supporter, stadium, deck, and discard. I'll probably up the dimensions by a few inches in both directions). Your standard Pokemon card is aprox. 3.5"x2.5".

    As I make more progress, I'll make another post. Somewhere on the mat I'll place rule reminders, like how special conditions work, and the setup phase of the game.
