Coasters - Beer Mats

Blank Coasters - Beer Mats

Wonderful blank chipboard in the form of drink coasters or beer mats! These coasters are an offwhite color, waiting for your decorating inspiration to take over. When used with colorful papers, they make perfect backboards for our Calendar Pads.

Since their function is to absorb liquid spills, using ink on them directly will probably feather out, but they could be pre-painted with acrylic or gesso to prevent that. 4" x 4" x 1/16".

10 Square Coasters $0.80
25 Square Coasters $2.00
50 Square Coasters $3.75
