The Design/Saying is printed on the mouse pad, we use the newest & best technology to print the design with great inks that are cured into the product. This new high tech way of producing garments and mouse pads is very fade resistant. WE DO NOT USE TRANSFERS. It is great, since you dont have that thick transfer feeling. The feel is very smooth.
