Comments about Logan 350-1 Compact Elite Mat Cutter:
This mat cutter is easy to use and produces professional looking mats. We purchased extra blades - and you do need to keep changing blades to make those perfect corners. We also purchased a selection of nice mats to learn on - just totally awesome!!!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Just as advertised - Great value
from Winnipeg, Canada
Very easy to use
from Tampa, FL
This couldn't have been easier to assemble and learn how to use. I should have bought it years ago. What's great too is that it doesn't slide, even on a granite counter top.
Two units, same problem
By Photo pro
Measurement arm does not fit in cutout on two units. Took a knife and fixed the problem with fit. Blick quickly sent a replacement after I notified them of problem.
JUST WHAT THE DR. ORDERED
from New Jersey
I had occasion to make several photo frames including mounting the photos. This product lived up to quality advertised, worked as easily as stated and saved me a great deal of time and money on the project. Many of the mats to be cut were of multi-opening types. This lent itself well to that end. The cutters and straight-edge system worked very nicely. Cutting the backing pieces was a snap. With a little effort one can obtain professional quality at a fraction of the cost to have them cut by a framing shop.
easy to use
from Palm, PA
This was easy to use. I even had a difficult first project with 4 openings and it came out right with just one try. looks great.
Does not take up much room
from Freehold, NY
Was very easy to use. I thought it would be harder should have gotten it a while ago.
from Milwaukie, OR
I am really happy with my mat cutter. So happy I bought another one for my artist friend who didn't have one.
350-1 One year later
from Bradenton, FL
I wrote a review about one year ago after purchasing this mat cutter. It has served me well as long as I don't get complacent. When cutting acid-free mat boards I find that they are somewhat thicker than the cheaper boards and therefore take greater attention to the mechanics of cutting. In some forums on the subject artists have had trouble getting a cut all the way through these thicker boards, no matter how deep they have set the blade. I have had the same issue. The problem is caused by not putting enough pressure where the thumb pushes the blade into the board, and too much pressure on the outside of the cutter assembly when following through with the cut. The blade drifts up and away from the front surface of the board, leaving an incomplete cut that has to be manually cut afterward if possible.

Excellent product, so much versatility
from Chicago, IL
Once I understood how the product worked, I was able to easily cut Matboard and mount a number of drawings. This was also very handy in cutting Foamboard to mak it fit into a frame, this was a big plus!Another plus was being able to cut wrapping paper to wrap several presents.This product not only met but exceeded my expectations and is definatly worth it price!One thing to keep in mind is 1) What will be your larger item you'll be cutting and 2) The area that you will be using this product in. I selected his size based on my now and future needs. Def a "recommend"!Blink product delivery was outstanding as well!
