Creative Mouse Pad Designs

The mouse was first used on the desk surfaces on which it lived, but as more and more accuracy was needed the mouse pad was eventually introduced. Nearly 10 years, mouse pads were essentially all the same-a piece of rubber cutout in the shape of a rectangle with some fabric glued to the top. Some companies eventually made mouse pads in different shapes, but generally that original, basic mouse pad remains the same today.

Advertising eventually came into the picture and changed the face of mouse pads as we knew it. They recognized the value of their logo being on desktops, right where people would see it on a daily basis. Even today, it’s easy to acquire branded mouse pads at trade shows, conventions, and fairs. Most people can’t stand having a mouse pad with a logo
