Does anybody make a 4 by 8 mouse mat terrain mat? and one that can be shipped to the United States within the next two weeks?

TinyWargames makes mouse mat material and has a US seller. This is the seller's site

Both are on facebook if you use that. I would recommend you email Chuck (US guy) before ordering to verify what is in stock. There have been some shipping issues from the UK, volume related I believe. If he has what you're looking for you'll probably be able to get it within 2 weeks no problem. But email him for sure.

Tiny mat does good work.

If you just want green or sand for your mat (i.e. no fields or roads printed on it) check out your local fabric store. Many cloths come in 48 and 60" widths and you can buy as long a mat as you need.

There is a cotton print that looks like the background in school photos. Comes in a variety of colors and the mottling helps break up the "battle of the 19th green" look. I have tan for desert, blue for ocean and reddish brown for Mars.

Thanks for the suggestions folks, but I am specifically looking for a mat in Mouse Mat material that is 4 x 8 at least. The largest I have found has been 4 x 6. Your suggestions are appreciated but unless there is something that I missed are quite right. Thanks any way.

Most companies will do custom sizes if you ask. I got a 7 x 5 recently, for example. Sized so I can use it on a 6x4 table as a flat mat with hills on top or draped over hill blocks.

I know Tinywargames do larger than 4x8. I can't say 100% about the mouse pad material but I own 2 10x6 mats in their normal cloth.

Is there no one that makes these in the US? Shipping from the UK adds significantly to the price. :(

8x4 should be doable. From some stuff I have read, widening beyond 4' is the big problem for many.
