THE ORIGINATOR OF FULL COLOR CUSTOM CLOTH PLAY MATS
MetaMats is a company that creates custom cloth playing mats. Our motto is "Made by us, designed by you." When we say custom, we mean virtually almost any image you can find can be put on one of our Grade A microfiber mats. Our fabric has been highly researched and is proved to be of the highest quality. Each microfiber insures a soft to the touch feel.
Our new printing process allows us to print full color on our mats, making us the only business to provide this service. Because of this process, the ink will not chip or fade overtime.
You may also realize that on our competitors mats, the parts that are printed feel raised compared to the parts that are not. Our mats have a smooth transition from the inked areas to the cloth. This means the areas that are inked feel exactly the same as the rest of the mat. This allows you to perfectly fan your cards every time without fail.
Everything started when one day Dave wanted to have a custom mat created for himself. He ended up looking online to see if there were any businesses out there that provided this service, and found out there wasn't. He then went to a local fabric store and picked out a fabric that he thought felt nice. It was a cheap suede that frayed easily. He then bought the tools necessary, and created an original design on the mat. He brought it to his local card shop, and the response he received was more than what he expected. After many hours of research and trial and error, he created a process to print full color on a cloth mat. And so MetaMats was born.
Dave's passion to create something unique and affordable is the main force behind MetaMats. As a casual player, Dave understands the importance of affordability. Other competitors make a set number of mats and allow you to pre-order them. This results in the mats being sold only minutes after the release. Also, there are cloth vendors out there that buy the pre-order in bulk and resell them for double and sometimes triple the profit.
At MetaMats we personally think this business practice is unfair. While we understand they are trying to create a want versus demand for their mats. It is unfair that you are limited to such a small time frame to be allowed to purchase this mat. If you miss it, you have to pay double sometimes triple the original asking price. Like any thriving business, we may be backed up at times, but we will never deny a customer a mat.
We at MetaMats believe that every player should get a mat that they want at an affordable price.
