Set Your Beverage Of Choice Down On These Geek Coasters

DO WANT

I own a set of coasters and although I don’t actually use them much I find myself compelled to buy more all the time. In this particular instance I blame Etsy user Jason Barfield (jb2designs). He went and made some wonderful geek coasters. So wonderful, in fact, I feel like I may have to start tiling my walls with them. Hit the jump to see Doctor Who, Harry Potter, superheroes and more!

Not only do Barfield’s products look great, I love the idea behind them. “As a child my imaginary friends were a tribe of Ewoks and I dreamed of being the captain of a federation star ship when I grew up. I am now grown up and while I don’t command a star ship I do love graphic design and creating things…most of them tend to have a geeky spin to them,” he writes. “The problem I’ve found with being a grown up and a geek is that I want to let my geek flag fly but I don’t necessarily want my house to look like a dorm room. It is from that desire that I started creating subtly geeky items that would fit into most any home.”

Coasters of Lost, Super Mario Bros., True Blood and more are in the shop and he’s open to custom orders!
