    Help? Mouse Mats???

    Hi everyone,

    Not been on here much latley, moved house and not got internet sorted yet. Im after a bit of help for work. I work in a school, and we normally get free mouse mats sent to us, but we havn't had any in over a year. That was becoming less of an issue until we got new desks, with holes in anyone know where I can get some from?

    Thanks,

    Claire

    I bin all of mine as the kids hit each other round the head with them! I also remove the keyboard wrist rests for the same reason.

    Ikea plain colours think about 50p each, not those awful plastic ones that the mouse slips on.

    Last time we needed any, we picked up a load of these at 36p each - http://www.ebuyer.com/product/43972

    Makes the IT rooms look a bit more professional than mix and match freebies and advertising everywhere!

    Not that simple, we need about 60 of them, and our buisness manager wont pay for them, He states they should be supplied with every mouse.

    Can't you ask your business manager to join the real world and realise that nothing comes for free?

    Well, that's a new one. I'd hate to see what they're like when they go shopping... "Ooh! A mug! HEY WHERE'S MY COASTER!" "Hey, let's get that TV... WHERE'S MY TV STAND!" etc

    Put a request out to parents in the school newsletter. You''ll find plenty of parents whose company have them as marketing giveaways. We have all sorts. I also put out a plea for VHS players and got loads, including a VHS/DVD combo that was virtually new and a 28" widescreen TV that adorns the staffroom.
