I'm new at cutting my own mats. The Logan 750-1 made it so easy for me to learn. The cost was by far the best I found. I saved so much that it was shocking. Love my cutter.
I wish I could quit my day job and play with thing all day!

I started because I am an artist and need to present my artwork in a professional manner. This did the trick, saves me tons of money and running around having someone else do it. I've learned how to do 'v-groves now and I am matting for others as well. I like the ease of use - a monkey could do it! I have no complaints to share -
economical and versatile product
By Yoko the print maker

I'm print maker, so, cutting own mat board with this product saves me a lot ob money in long term.This product is especially versatile and economical with plastic cutter and glass cutter. Although,when I cut clear plastic plate with this,it was a little tricky to make a clean cut.
Dose what is billed to do
from lapeer, mi
In my opinion this is an expensive item based on what it actually would cost to build. But the design is very workable and it functions as described with a little practice. Again the instructions are very poor quality. Fortunately the framing book that came as a bonus with the 750 is very helpful. It is easy to get the slip sheet miss-positioned causing the sheet to become damaged. I don't like stuff that has damage to it so I wanted to purchase a new slip sheet, but I have been unable to locate this item. Will probably end up calling blick once I work out all the details of use. I'm getting pretty good with it now and if I can remember to check the slip sheet position before I cut every time, then I will look for the replacement.
Merchant response: Thank you for your review! A slip sheet is just a piece of scrap mat board that is placed beneath the mat when bevel cutting. Although we don't sell these scraps, you should have plenty available from your own mat cutting. If you ever have questions on the use of a product you purchase from us, we hope you'll reach out to our Product Information Department. They're available weekdays from 8am to 5:30pm CST at 1-800-933-2542, or you can email firstname.lastname@example.org. They're happy to assist you!
I've never had a mat cutter before but I 've looked at them for a long time and wanted to buy. I have been told by other artists not to get an inexpensive one or I would not be happy, so I did my homework. I'm producing more art now and wanted a lifelong tool. This is perfect.
Great Mat Cutter
Fairly easy to use, although it takes a bit of practice. Online videos are extremely helpful!Included everything necessary to cut mats, foamboard, glass, & plexiglass.

Logan Mat Cutter perfect for every use!
By Z Photo and Printmaker
from Denver, CO
I use the Logan mat cutter for cutting mats, foam board, and glass. The quality of the cuts and the ease of use has made this cutter an integral part of my small business. I have been using the cutter for more than 9 years and it is in still great shape. Being able to cut large pieces of mat, foam board, and glass with accuracy has helped me to do almost all my work by myself. I do have to check the square setting every once and a while, but it is amazing how well it holds true square over time. If needed, it is easy to adjust. The instructional manual and video were great to get me started.
