      • ACTION: Kartik will look into printing more mousepads
        • Update from KS: Checked with Pat. There are 35-40 of them left. They cost roughly $2--$3 per pad and obviously more we order the cheaper it gets but $2 is a good number to go by. We are getting a quote for 500,1000, 1500 and 2000 and we will have the quote by Monday. I would recommend that we order at least a ~1000.
