Welcome to dickblick
Logan first introduced the 450 Intermediate+ Mat Cutter (originally the Model 401) in 1998. Offering full-size (40") capacity and a unique, heavy-duty pull-style bevel cutting head, the Intermediate+ is known by artists around the world as an easy, accurate, and value-priced mat cutting system.
Logan's next-generation Model 450-1 Artist Elite Mat Cutter offers even more features, at the same price as the original 450!
The 450-1 Artist Elite features a 40" (101 cm) board, capable of cutting full 32" × 40" (81.3 cm × 101.6 cm) sheets of standard-thickness matboard, a hinged guardrail, a mat guide for border widths from ¾" (2 cm) to 5½" (14 cm), and a heavy-duty pull-style bevel cutter with anti-crawl pin.
Also included are a new adjustable-depth pivoting straight cutter, aluminum channel guides, and a removable 20" (51 cm) measuring bar with a production stop for the straight cutter. The squaring bar holds matboards at a 90° angle for straight cutting. Two guiderail stops are also included for production cutting.
Designed for artists, photographers, crafters, and framers, the Logan 450-1 Artist Elite cuts standard thickness (4-ply or 1.4 mm) mat boards only. Five #270 Blades are included.

Excellent choice for easy mat cutting

Comments about Logan 450-1 Artist Elite Mat Cutter:
Have not had a chance to do any major project but the few I have went well. Easy set up.. Just remember to separate the blades as they are thin and I did not realize there were two so took a while to load the cutter.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I would buy it again!
from Colville, WA.
As an artist, purchasing a matt cutter was a no-brainer as it has already paid for itself with just the matting and framing of two drawings. This is a great deal and I would recommend this product. The only downside that I found was that I felt it would have been helpful to have a DVD of product usage included in the box instead of expecting the purchaser to download the informational DVD on the computer. Not everyone has a good working computer. But, all in all, I am quite pleased.

I make signs for museum exhibits and this is perfect for the job! Cuts precisely so I only need to do the job once.
Why did I wait?

So useful for cutting so many things square and clean. Goes thru matt board like butter! Square any paper.

I love it. It's what I needed.
By Dolphin girl
from Fremont, Ca.
Because I do my own art work and mat; I am shocked at myself for not investing in it years ago. Best investment I have made. I am sure it will pay for itself. The nice thing is, I can do custom cuts. No more waisting art paper to make fit into pre cut mats. It did take 2 of us to put it together; but we did.
Simple to use, works great
from Oak Forrest, IN
Works like a dream once you get the swing of it
from Dana Point, CA
For a person who has not used a mat cutter other than a hand held, it has worked perfectly. Easy to set up and like the instruction videos. Cut a double mat yesterday and it is perfect. I have a lot of art work to be framed, so it is more for personal use. Great price and will definitely pay for itself.
Good product, good service
from Altamonte Springs, FL
Bought for my son to use to mat his artwork. He is very pleased with the quality.
Perfect for large mats
from Frederick, MD
I use this mat cutter to cut my oversized mats. I have the Logan compact mat cutter for smaller picture mats. The 450-1 allows me the flexibility to do all of my large mat cuts at home. A good time saver and when you amortize the cost for professional mat cutting, this pays for itself with just 6 large format cutting jobs! Well worth it!
