Ordering a Custom Playmat can be Easy and Affordable.

If you're a trading card game enthusiast, you know what a flex it is to roll out a stunning and unique Playmat at the start of a match. A custom playmat not only provides a non-slip surface for your cards but also adds a personal touch to your gaming experience. Ordering a custom playmat can seem daunting, but with the right steps, it's a breeze.


First, you need to download a template for the playmat. SublimeGaming.net offers a downloadable template at tinyurl.com/SublimeTempV8. It should work well for any vendor offering a 24” x 14” playmat. The template is in PSD (Photoshop) format and contains guidelines for the artwork and bleed areas. It's essential to use the correct template to ensure that the final product looks exactly as intended.


Next, you need to add your art to the template. If you don’t have Photoshop, there are many online photo editing tools available. Photopea.com is an excellent option as it's free and has similar functionality to Photoshop. When adding art to the template, it's essential to keep in mind the bleed areas, which are the parts of the artwork that extends beyond the playmat’s edge or onto the stitching. It's best to keep any important details within the safe area and out of the bleed areas but you need to cover the entire template with your art.


Once you're happy with your design, export it as a PNG file. The PNG format allows for transparency, which means that the playmat company can print your design as is, without a white background.


It's crucial to only use art that you have a reasonable claim to. This means using art that is either free to use, whole owned by you, or hiring an artist to do a commission piece for you. Most playmat companies do not offer commission work by request, so it's essential to have your artwork ready to go.


If you're unsure about the art you're using, Sublime Gaming is happy to assist and answer any questions you may have on this subject. You can reach out to us via admin@sublimegaming.net. We offer excellent customer support and are dedicated to ensuring that our customers are satisfied with their purchase.


Finally, provide a PNG file for the playmat company to print from. Some sites like SublimeGaming.net have a Drop Box for your file while others may require the image be sent another way. WeTransfer.com allows you to send large files quickly and easily. You do not need to create an account to use WeTransfer.com and it is free. WeTransfer.com is a great tool for purchasing on Etsy where things like files Drop Boxes are not possible.
