Frontline Gaming has acquired the means to manufacture an entirely new line of gaming mats here in the United States of America at our new facility in San Diego, California. These are exciting times as the ability to manufacture our product domestically gives us unprecedented flexibility in design and quality control, ensuring that each mat we sell is just what our customers are looking for. Your new gaming mat will be made by us, your fellow gamers! The possibilities are endless with these new tools and we look forward to a bright future in game mat design. Sign up for our newsletter over at Frontline Gaming to stay informed as to when these new mats will be available and what we will be possible of manufacturing here in the good old US of A!
