"I am very satisfied with this mouse pad. I got one for my mom for mother's day, one for my grandpa for father's day and then one for my dad for father's day after he said he wanted one too. The pad quality seems very good. It doesn't just fall apart like free mouse pads you get in the mail. The image quality on the pad is great! I used a grey scale, black and white picture and it was stunning!
One bad thing about the mouse pad, but is something you would get with ANY freshly created custom mouse pad, is that IT STINKS LIKE OLD TUNA! :-) I used to help my parents make custom mouse pads a few years ago, and they would smell the same way. If you are getting this as a gift, try to give it a little extra time so you can air out the mouse pad before gifting the old fish... I mean mouse pad. :-)
It truly is a great product, and the smell is normal. Just let it air out and it will go away. GET THIS AS A GIFT!
The only other thing I can think of is that my mom was a little uncomfortable with putting a mouse on a picture my sister and myself. She felt a little bad about squishing our faces, so she uses a different pad and tilted the one with our picture up so she could see it next to her computer. My dad and grandpa on the other hand had not problem putting a mouse on our faces. :-)
This is not an issue with the product, but is just something to think about when you are getting this for a friend or family member. It really depends on the person's personality and what they think about. :-)
Good luck! Again, I recommend this product and the quality is "Shutterfly Great", as usual!"

"Boy! I was truly amazed at how Shutterfly transferred my photo onto the mouse pad. The fabric of the mouse pad had a tighter nit and softer feel. The clothes that we wore in the photo looked so real. When you touched the mouse pad, you felt that as if you were touching the real clothes! The image on the mouse pad had a very high resolution. On top of all that, the mouse pad was a quarter of an inch thick--a very well-made mouse pad. I am very happy with Shutterfly's mouse pad."

Nice mouse pad, but the odor...
"Nice quality mouse pad, quick service, but still stinky after one week. The rubber odor is less pronounced and I hope will abate soon. I'm glad I aired it out before I give it away as a gift."
