You all voted for "A" so I went ahead and put the design to production. The softness of the wrist support system is perfect and is designed to cater for wrists of all shapes and sizes. The mirai mousepad can also be used for taking a nap at work.
It has taken a while to get the quality up to what I've been expecting and at last the time and effort has paid off. The reason it took so long was because I wanted the wrist support to be very soft - much softer than other mousepads with similar support systems. The problem is that when they are too soft, the material tends to come loose which makes mirai look 70 and not 17.
You will first be able to buy this at the Anime Festival Asia in limited numbers.
Will soon be available to the rest of the world though online retailers during end of November and is being released under the Culture Japan label.
The market price of most Oppai mousepads in Japan retail at 4,200 yen but I've only managed to get the price of mirai mousepad down to 3,980 yen as I only had budget at this moment to make a small quantity - the larger the quantity I make, the lower the unit price becomes. Am guessing that some retailers may sell cheaper as they do with figures though.
I'll do a separate post on how to work with factories to make stuff and take into consideration things like logistics, taxes, packaging, samples, retailer/wholesalers and pricing strategies.
I do most of my design work in Fireworks and export to PSD. Its annoying that the latest Photoshop does not allow you to save in an earlier version ToT
Decided to keep the box design simple.
