Floppy Disk Coasters

These aren't just floppy disks. Some of them are floppy floppy disks. The ones with the exposed strip of film housing the original Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Lounge Lizards. Sadly for me, while the nifty wood coaster versions are a benedable or hard 3 1/2" square trip down memory lane for many people, due to having a 68-year-old boss who won't allow any accessory or piece of data that has had previous relations with a computer hooked up to the Interneton our office network, floppy disks are still part of my everyday document storage and transfer life. I actually kind of hate them. So much that it might be as cathartic as it would nostalgic for me to have a few coasters in their likeness that I can let my Bud Light Limes sweat all over.

The 4-piece floppy disk coaster set is made of birch plywood finished with a clear matte coat. Optionally, each disk can be laser engraved with personal messages designated upon order. Luckily, at 3.25" square, the coasters are a little smaller than their 1.44 MB counterparts, so there's less chance I'll shove one into my external floppy drive. Well, not mistakenly anyway.
