Hello, I am another member of producing it.
you have a great idea and you are right !! but I want you to know something that nice etched kitchen chopping board is about US $10 and I can find under $5 one. but Kitchen chopping board made by chip green glass but this Glass Mouse Pad is used by white glass which is 5 times expensive than normal glass. A green glass changes a based color, so it cannot show real white what I want.
The other one is mousepad surface. We tried a lot of chemical and physical method to make perfect surface for all mouses, and we found how to make surface. It needs two physical steps and one chemical step. However, The chemical step is little dangerous work so we skip it now.
Think about material cost + labor cost + shipping cost, it is not chip product.
I really want to sell it around the world. but I dont know how to sell it. surly, except logo. it is just sample for private using.
