The original version of the Jackalope Typewriter Pad sold out fast, and it has gotten good reviews:
"I am enjoying the very useful pad. Incorporating the non-skid material with the felt is genius."
"It is a marked improvement from the placemat and its mild protests to the typewriter's journey across the table."
"The non-slip surface on one side is a great idea!"
"I could not be more pleased. I had been using shelf liners with either felt scraps or dish drying pads atop. While they helped keep my typewriters in the general vicinity of where they were being used, they all, eventually skittered away. So far, my Jackalope has held fast. Neither my Olympias nor my Smith Coronas have budged it. If I'm taking a typer with me I just put the pad in the top of the case, close it up, and I'm good to go."
"It's definitely the best one I've got. The rubber footing works much better than the other rubber mat I have."
"It definitely does a great job muffling typewriter noise, in fact, much better than any makeshift pad I've used. The thickness and firmness are just right, and the texture of the felt provides a good grip so that the typewriter stays in place while typing."
One typist requested a different color choice, and a couple of people would prefer a thicker pad. I haven't been able to get a thicker option, but I do have a version of the pad in a different color now. These pads are also an inch shorter on each side (12" x 13" x 0.25") and a dollar cheaper. The price is $10.99 + $3.00 US shipping.
Just about every typewriter, portable or standard, will fit on the pad.
Like the original Jackalope, this pad combines soft felt with budgeless rubber to provide a quiet and stable typing experience. (Click to enlarge photos.)
Again, quantities are quite limited, shipping is to US only, payment is only through PayPal (credit cards can be used), and I will note on this post that the pads are SOLD OUT when they're gone.
Once again, all profits will go to WordPlay Cincy.
