    Smile What is the best rotary cutting mat on the market?

    Looking to replace my Olfa cutting mats that I have had over ten years. I would like to get your feedback on which mats you like best and why. I am looking at an 18X 24" size.

    Olfa is my favorite, really don't like the pink ones (whatever brand they are). Ten years of use I think makes for a good quality cutting mat.

    I too like Olfa the best. I do have one bigger which is not an Olfa and I do use it once in a while, but it's not self healing and my cutter blades seem to dull faster on it....
    Families are like old quilts....although they tend to unravel at times...each can be stitched back together with love.

    the (off=brand) mats may work well and be (someone's) favorite when they first get it- but they do not hold up well-and certainly would not last the 10 years your olfa lasted(more like 2-3 years)
    you have the answer to your own question- the mat that is best is the mat that you personally like- and holds up- is worth the $$ it costs.

    Olfa for me too. I have had great luck with them. I bought another brand (less expensive) and thought it was okay but didn't last.
