Good tool for the job
By NY photog

Comments about Logan 350-1 Compact Elite Mat Cutter:
The Compact Elite is pretty solidly built and includes all of the tools needed to cut accurate mats. I had very little experience with mat cutting when I bought it; watched one of the videos on-line; read the instructions and was able to cut mistake-free mats the first time.If you expect to work with larger sheets of board, the standard Elite is the better choice, but I print my photographs to 11 x 14 paper and the Compact is all I think I'll need.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I bought this for occasional mat cutting at home. At first I found the setup rather daunting, but really it's easy peasey. Really, you just attach the guide bar and put blades in the cutters, and that's it. I found a place to stand it on end to store it between a file cabinet and a wall, so it's out of the way.I have only cut a piece to size and haven't used it to cut the inside of a mat. But I can see that's easy too, way easier than with a knife, and they have videos on Youtube to show you how.

This is easy to use . . . followed along with your videos! I really cannot compare it is any other mat cutter, but the quality is great. Solid and sturdy!

350-1 works great for my studio
By Joy Guy
from Wallowa, Or
Doing a lot different size mats for large inventory of my paintings, prints and cast paper. Handy to jump from one project size to another. Like the portability so I can move it around in my studio.

Bought to make mats for some oddly sized photographs. It was very easy to use following the instructions.The manual mentioned an app for calculating border sizes but I couldn't find it anywhere. It would have been very helpful as I did make a couple mistakes.
Fabulous & so easy
from Beaver Island, MI
I always seem to end up with art that wouldn't qualify for a standard sized matt board.This was so easy to use and looks very professional. Seems durable. Extremely happy with this and would recommend it to someone else.
Excellent Quality for the Price
from Island Lake, IL
I use this mat cutter to cut single thickness mat boards for all my artworks and to cut the backing boards.I really like having the line on the cutting handle that helps to guide you on where to stop cutting. It is really easy to use and cuts through without requiring a lot of muscle power.
from Saint Marys, GA
This is my first mat cutter so I can't compare it to others but it was pretty easy to figure out and use and does exactly what I need it to. I purchased this so that I could offer custom matting for my photography clients. It's been on my list for a while and I'm so glad I finally ordered it! I have a couple clients who ordered 8x12 prints and I was able to customize a mat for them to fit into an 11x14 frame and they are thrilled to be able to use a standard frame for their images.
