    HASH(0xa7602900) out of 5 stars Grid on mat is not square June 8 2013
    By Banicks - Published on Amazon.com

    The mat is terrific but the grid is not square. Over the 42" length it is almost 1/8" off square. For most projects this probably will not create a problem but if you MUST have absolutely square cuts do not use the grid. I will make the necessary adjustments to compensate when I need the absolute square or use my T square to attain it. Other than that I love the mat.

    HASH(0xa7602d8c) out of 5 stars A Cut Above June 5 2013

    This mat is just what I needed and does all it promises to do. I doubted the self-healing part but it really does not show any cuts after using it for over 6 months. I don't use it every day and I use a Tonic Studios 806 Mini Rotary Perforator as my cutting tool so other uses and durations may tax it more. But for my use it works great. I make card-stock hang tags for my handmade products I sell at craft fairs and perforate one part of the tag to use as an inventory management tool. The little perforator works great with this mat. The lines printed on the mat help me keep the cutting edge straight and it has a great feel to cut against. The price is outstanding for what it does for me. I'm a very happy camper.

    HASH(0xa7602b64) out of 5 stars Do not use it for measurements Sept. 30 2013

    I just started using this mat and noticed once that the grid is not very accurate, unfortunately I noticed this 2 days to late when making some cuts and having them all short, now have to just eat the loss and throw it away

    HASH(0xa764b084) out of 5 stars Surprise! There is NO better cutting mat. March 31 2013
    By josaysso - Published on Amazon.com

    Surprised? Yes, I was. But it's been 4 years since I bought this 42 x 30 mat. No disappointments. No regrets. It still looks brand new. I'm still happy.

    My original LARGER than large flexible plastic mat was very expensive. It was made for blade cuts. NOT! It got grooves, pits, and was not easy to store. The cutting marks were not exact enuf. It slid all over the table top. When in doubt, I threw it out! Never looking back. Very good move. Cause this Professional Cutting Mat will go on forever. And if I need another size -- I will buy it!

    HASH(0xa764b2b8) out of 5 stars Gauge your depth, avoid heat, don't depend on the grid May 2 2014
    By J. Thorpe - Published on Amazon.com

    I got a nice big one, 36x48, to cover my drafting table. I use it as a workspace for leatherworking, day-in and day-out. Lots and lots of cutting, with a mix of rotary tool and utility knife, cutting through cloth, leather, bookbinding board, and varying thickness of glue/epoxy.

    I kinda figured this would (ultimately) be a disposable item with wear, but I didn't think it would start showing damage within a month or two. It's already starting to shed little green bits on my work. At this rate, I'm probably gonna have to flip it and use the black side within another couple months. I figured I'd be able to use this thing for a couple of years and then need to replace it, but I'll be lucky if I can stand to use it for a year. So, there's that.

    Also, I recommend not putting anything even remotely warm on it: laptop (or laptop charger brick), iPhone charger brick, mug of coffee, bowl of soup…doesn't matter. As soon as the mat heats and expends, it's pretty much gonna be warped from then on out. The only thing I've not yet tried is to just bring the whole thing out and lay it on a hot sidewalk for a while, and then bring it back inside to my cold floor. Could fix it, could make it worse. Not sure I wanna risk it.

    One final thing: I've seen Alvin products pretty much all my life, and I think they used to uphold a much higher quality than this. The screen-printed grid and numbering is really fuzzy, completely imprecise, and roughly the quality I would expect from a Chinese knock-off product.
