Desk mats and blotters

Desk mats and blotters are one of those things which are part of an everyday office environment but of which we rarely take any notice. Yet they can protect your desk from scratches and wear and provide you with a comfortable working surface on which to write with ease to blot your quills or even move your mouse. They also smarten up your desk, a posh blotter, for instance, lending your desk a 1950s doctor's surgery look. At Paperstone we have a terrific range of desk mats and blotters and if you are stuck trying to decide which one to get, give us a call on 0345 567 4000.

A desk mat is a large, flat pad made from a range of materials that, among other things, provides a smooth writing surface. A blotter, or blotting pad, serves a similar function but is comprised of sheets of blotting paper joined at the edges so that in addition you can drain off excess ink when using a fountain pen or ink in artistic uses.
