    What's your favorite cutting mat?

    I have a really old smallish Olfa that needs replaced. I have one of the large mats from Joanne's that goes on their craft table that I really don't like much, it seems too slick or maybe my other one is just so well loved it's rough now LOL. What is your favorite brand?

    I like a two sided mat. I have one from Martelli, but they are expensive. I also have a Gingher Two sided one which I like; I got it with a JoAnn's coupon.

    I have a small Olfa that I used for several years. I wanted one to cover my table top, so I bought one of the large white ones from Joanns. I never did like it. It isn't self healing and now I felt like it had enough wear and tear to justify a new one. I bought the large Olfa (35" by 70") and I again realize what a good cutting mat Olfa makes.

    I love my Olfa mats! I give it a soak now and then to help keep it from drying out. I also turn it over when first side needs to be retired~

    I just replaced an old large mat I've had for years. Bought a Fiskars 2 sided 24x36" and I love it.

    Olfa is all I own, in a few different sizes.
