    Which do you feel is the best cutting mat and why? I need to get a 24 x 36 cutting mat and am wondering if one is better than the other. My Walmart has the fiskers on clearance for $27.00. Michaels has the olfa for $56.00. Do you prefer one over the other?

    I love my June Taylor cutting mat. Guess that isn't much help!

    I've had both brands and don't think one is better than the other. I got my Olfa mat at Joanne's with a coupon, and I think it was still $40. I'd go for the Fiskars for the price.

    I have had both.. I think my Olfa is lasting longer than the Fiskars.

    I started with the Fiskars about 10 years ago, it's still doing fine. I also happen to like the Fiskars rotary cutter handle best.

    I asked this question a while back and got lots of feedback.. Many said the Olfa had a bad odor... I bought new Fiskars and there is no outgassing with them...

    and got them at Joann's with 50% off coupon that I got online..

    I have both and do not see a difference between the two. Get the one that is the cheapest. They are both good mats

    My Fiskars mat is over 10 years old and still going strong; June Tailor was destroyed in less than a year. My cutters are Olfa.

    Olfa, Fiskars, and June Tailor are good cutter mat products.
    I personally do NOT like Dritz.

    Use a good quality rotary cutter (like Olfa) and you won't have any problems with any of these cutter mats.
