It takes a little while to get the mat, but you have to keep in mind that they custom print your word, name, whatever - on it.

Mine came rolled up in a box, and was well packaged for a mat. This makes a couple edges stick out for a few days, but I think they'll flatten out eventually.

Another reviewer mentioned the mat as being thin, and possibly insubstantial? I tend to agree. For some reason, when I looked at the description of the mat on the Uncommon Goods website, I thought it would be thicker. Maybe like the rubber of the mats in your gym? My mistake. After re-reading the description, We certainly aren't being misled, but the reviews usually tell the story a little better. The mat is very thin.

Does this mean it's not useful? No, it's still a cool looking do-hickey, and people will comment on it (if they're the type of people who notice floormats; you know - analysts, engineers, introverts...) The mat may absorb a little water, like from the bottom of your shoes after walking in the rain. But you got muddy feets? Fugged-about-it.

SO, keep in mind that this is meant to be more decorative than heavy duty, and you'll be OK when you get it in the mail.

ALTHOUGH THIS IDEA IS VISUALLY CLEVER, THE EXECUTION IS VERY BAD. THE MAT IS SIMPLY A PIECE OF FLAT COMPUTER-PRINTED THIN POLYESTER FABRIC OVER A 1 MM. THIN SHEET OF FLAT RUBBER BACKING. THERE IS NO TEXTURE OR STURDINESS TO IT AT ALL; IT IS VERY FLOPPY. IT IS DESCRIBED AS SUITABLE FOR INDOORS OR OUT- I WOULD DEFINITELY NOT PUT IT OUTSIDE. I HAVE DECIDED TO USE MINE ON THE BATHROOM FLOOR. IT LOOKS CUTE BUT DOES NOT ABSORB WATER, EITHER (IN FAIRNESS, IT IS NOT MEANT TO) .
SORRY I WASTED THE MONEY.

    I purchased two manhole cover mats for use at trade shows and conferences. We ended up using them everyday around the office because of the high quality and realism. They get comments all the time.

        Comments about UncommonGoods Personalized Manhole Cover Doormat:

        I've never left a negative feedback in my life but I just had to on this one occasion. The mat in the photo makes it appear like it has a bevel to it and grooves. The mat is quite flat in reality and it looks like they just picked a font and printed it onto a surface. It's my mistake to have assumed they would have a mat that has grooves and bevels like that of a real manhole but the pic they advertise gives you that false impression. The mat is super thin, but I can live with that.

              I think I would pass on this item. I thought it would be substantial in weight but it is flimsy and curls up so it won't lay flat. Looks cheap. The rubber backing is less than ¼ of an inch. I am really upset I bought this item.

                  This is a unique and well done mat .. If you don't expect to put this in a heavy traffic area it's great ! It is thin and flat ( it appears to be dimensional) and probably won't wear well with muddy boots erc. but it looks fabulous in the gym in front of the door and is a great conversation piece ! The lettering looks like it belongs and was there for 50 years ! My husband loved it ! I don't recommend this for outdoor use no matter what weather you live in ...
