    I have an opportunity to get a 24 x 36 OLFA cutting mat for 28 bucks, but is it the one I really want? It is self-healing, but only one-sided. Green with yellow markings. Some have block-sized grid lines which I think might be nice. Other brands? - 3 times Joann's has been out, only having Dritz - with no price and I didn't have the stomach to stand in line to find out. What mat do you use? It's like I'm frozen and can't buy any of them.

    I have a Dritz and a Donna Dewberry. Both are fine but the Dritz is easier for me to read.

    If you can get the Olfa for that price, go for it. I haven't used mine yet, but all their products have been fine. I've ben using an old wavy Fiskars, so I'm sure the my one will be a pleasure.

    Olfa is my favorite. I have Dritz and I do not like it.

    I use an Olfa mat. At that price, I would snap that mat up without a thought. Mine is an 18x24, which does the trick, but I really want a bigger one.

    That size of mat here costs $90+.

    I love when Joann's has a sale on cutting mats and cutters. I picked up the mat that you can turn. It costs like 74 bucks and I got it for 40% off. I got the big huge one that goes for 150 bucks for half price once with a coupon. I love Joann's.
