    Honest question, is it just a rug?

    #3 10 months ago

    Nice idea. Kind of reminds me of the mats you hang over the front fenders of a car when you are working inside the engine compartment.

    #4 10 months ago

    Is it grippy on the underside to to keep it from sliding?

    #5 10 months ago

    These are made out of a material I am quite familiar with! Great idea, and good pricing! If you can get somebody to print an image on these, I am in big time.

    #6 10 months ago

    Interested but please answer the above posts.

    #7 10 months ago

    Shoot. I already moved my games in from the backyard.

    #8 10 months ago

    Cardboard works, not as pretty but a lot cheaper.

    #9 10 months ago

    Just a thought, maybe donate to this website.

    #10 10 months ago

    Looks like a yoga mat... good luck!

    #11 10 months ago
    Quoted from TheLaw:

    Honest question, is it just a rug?

    No, The material is not cloth in any capacity.

    #12 10 months ago

    I've been using a cut-down yoga mat like this for years' to do this on the adjacent machine when working on a game. Keeps your tools and everything in place due to the grippy surface. Price isn't bad for something that's already pre-cut.

    Quoted from zacaj:

    It is the same texture on both sides, available in standard and wide body glass sizes with custom sizing options available.

    We are currently in the process of performing testing, utilizing different methods of imposing images onto the mat. Print quality has varied so far but we are close

    The material is of a higher consistency as compared to yoga mat material.

    #16 10 months ago

    It seems to be neoprene.
    How much is the shipping internationally?

    #17 10 months ago
    Quoted from Nihonmasa:

    International rates vary depending on location. PM me your Swiss postal code so that I may calculate the exact shipping cost.

    #18 10 months ago

    Five suggestions for you.

    First off add a location to your user so people have an idea where you are shipping from (if these are being drop shipped likely best to give that location). And also advertise average shipping cost.

    Second DONATE to Pinside - it is the least you can do if you are using their site to advertise

    Third give people some idea of shipping cost, material item is made from, etc so they have some kind of a clue what they are buying. Not too much detail just enough so they know they are not buying a piece of carpet.

    Fourth Offer some kind of an introductory discount (say &12.50 for first 30 days to get your name other there and create some buzz) Then once you get a few feedbacks go to your regular price.

    And lastly offer quantity discount - your best customers will likely want a few of these to cover all their machines not just one!

    aren't these the same thing but just different color with a stuck on diy logo?

    #20 10 months ago

    I have a roll of cheap tool box liner that I unroll when putting tools/etc on the adjacent machine.

    I just finished setting up the seller store so the location has been added. Bakersfield CA 93313

    Donation is incoming

    I will have an exact shipping cost posted within the next few hours i just have to get down to USPS and weight the box.

    $12.50 introductory price is active!

    Once I get the shipping estimate i will gladly offer a quantity discount.

    Im afraid not, but it will hide the ghosting and pooling so you dont have to see it when you walk by!

    Run some LEDs around the perimeter and people will go apeshit for them.

    LOL

    #33 10 months ago

    Find a way to print game logo's on them, and you'll have a winner. But also probably be sued.

    #34 10 months ago

    $22 shipping for four sound right? They’re prob pretty bulky.

    #35 10 months ago

    Bring these to expo, you’ll make a killing

    #36 10 months ago

    I’m still trying to find a good way to ship single mats. Multiple mats will be charged actual shipping so it would be cheaper to buy more but I am still looking for a solution for small orders. Thanks for all the suggestions and positivity guys !

    #37 10 months ago

    Was anyone else not able to order via Pinside and PayPal?

    What's the memory of rhis material? If you end up having ro roll them up for shipping, are they going to retain any curl?

    #39 10 months ago

    All:

    Thank you everyone for their interest in our product. I have been working on this for some time and wanted to see if there was interest and after today we know there is. We are going to be processing all orders and inquiries received so far for our new product, but going forward we are going to put a temporary hold on all further orders so we can regroup. We will be reaching out to everyone who has already inquired about an order to be processed, my PayPal Store is not working correctly. We are actually working with Company on branding these and adding custom decals to the mats as well. Thank you guys for your understanding and we are looking forward to the feedback after the first group receives their order.

    ... showcasing it with a PCB on there also implies that it is static safe... going forward you might want to clarify that as well.

    #45 10 months ago

    I am one of the few that have seen and tested these in person. I had towels on all my machines till I tried one of these PinShields. These work great for working on pins without worrying about the old towel cover sliding off the end of the machine taking all your tools and pinball parts off with it. It grips the glass so it does not slide off and looks really clean since it is not hanging over all the edges. He is already working on the next version, improving the logo so it has a nicer finish.

    #46 10 months ago

    $15 isnt bad. Id like more info though.

    #47 10 months ago

    I ordered a few... I am sick of my moving blankets sliding off! Hope these work out better!
    Thanks,

    My payment won't go through... any idea why I can't use the paypal shopping cart checkout?

    #50 10 months ago

    Nice Job! I like the product and the clean lines when used across multiple games!

    (Im too much of a cheap bastard though, I use the Free Harbor freight moving blankets that cover the rails and side art)

    Best of Luck!
