    You asked, I'll give you my two cents...
    I LOVE my creative marks cutting mat, its 3x as thick as those cheap olfa mats!
    www.jerrysartarama.com 23x35 is like 44.00$, but sew worth it! it seems to
    heal better than olfa does, happy hunting!

    I need a new mat. Looked on line for the price of the Martelli - WOW! I'll replace mine with another Olfa.

    Ruby, My thoughts, exactly! The two smaller Olfas I have are great & I need to replace my large one. Overstock.com has the best price & shipping is a flat 2.95. A good deal IMO. :-)

    Can you tell me where I could buy these mats?

    My Olfa is 12 years old, gets lots of use and still works great. I have the two Olfa rotating mats and enjoy using them.

    Umm.....my MIL and I have had our Olfa mats for 25+ years. One of my DILs has that one now and I have a 24"x36" in my sewing room. None of mine have marks in them. I didn't like the red ones, whatever brand they are. I felt like fabric slid too much on them.

    I wish I could find another Olfa ruler like the one I bought with the mat but 36" long. I truly don't intend to ever replace my mats. I assumed they were a once in a life time purchase.
