Welcome to dickblick
These protective cutting mats are made with a 3 ply resilient vinyl that heals so completely it can be used as a writing/drawing surface, even over previous cut lines.
Cutting mats are recommended for calligraphers, designers, photographers, or anyone who has a desktop to protect. The translucent cutting mat provides a protective surface for lightboxes, as well as tabletops.
Mats are marked with a ½" grid pattern with cutting angles and ¼" gradations on the base and left hand vertical edge. Non-slip, non-glare.
Green/Black mats are double sided with grids printed on both sides.

I use this product so often for anything from trimming photos and drawings to cutting out more precise things like letters for projects. It's durable for sure. It holds up well. It's portable, lightweight, and heavy duty. The price is one you can't beat.
Excellent for all my needs

Helps a lot when I'm doing lots of cutting for my design 2 class assignments
Exactly what I needed
from Milwaukie, OR
The mat is rigid and thicker than anticipated (a good thing) but it worked well with my xacto knife and barely left a scratch. The surface is smooth and it was a little difficult to pick up thin pieces of cut paper but I managed. I am so happy to have this.
Excellent cutting surface!
from Kent, OH
We purchased the 36 x 48 cutting mat for a durable cutting surface. Mat is heavy enough so it won't slide during use. Printed grid is great for precise cuts.
Would buy from again.

Great place to do business with. Quick shipping (and at Christmas, no less) could not get my paypal to work so called and was treated so nice.
By Dave Ohio
Very nice mat! Well packaged... Highly recommended if you are in the market of a cutting mat. Shipping was on-time. This item was packaged in a flat box to prevent any bending of the mat. Packaging was impressive! Thank you BLICK...
Love this mat
from Andrews, NC
This is a replacement cutting mat for an Alvin I've had for over 30 years. This time I bought a larger size because I work with larger papers and needed a larger surface. I'm sure this new mat will outlast me!
Wonderful cutting mat! Prefect for that heavy duty cutting!

This mat is perfect for cutting thick linoleum for linocuts. The size I purchased (18x24") is the right size for all my cutting. I find if the mat is too small, I always regret I didn't buy a larger size. I recommend purchasing the largest mat as possible, if you have the space. I especially like the two colors. Black on one side, and green on the other. With this feature you can always flip to the other side when one side gets too many dents.
Sharp cutting mat
For some reason no mat is made for 16x21 drawing boards, so the first thing I had to do wasto cut it down. No matter how I worked it, the diagonal lines for measuring did not line up with anything useful. And they are so thick that the grid lines are not very useful for anything I can see. It IS possible to print much finer lines on these boards, or just leave them off, but unfortunately, those are not options. I might have bought something else if I could have seen it in person, so online shopping strikes again. Turned line side down it is still pretty ugly and the lines are distracting. They could put the lines on self adhesive plastic to use or not, but no company does that. I will have to look at this ugly thing for the foreseeable future. It does its job but there can be downsides to this particular product- the biggest is that with half a dozen Blick stores in my city, none have these as a regular stock item the customer can look at.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
