o Long Life Durability. A cutting mat should stand up to...cutting...alot of cutting...with sharp things. This is their lot in life.
+ Inexpensive. Slightly less expensive than the rest.
+ Nice Grid Imprinting. Good contrast. Nice 30/45/60 degree angles.
+ Nice semi-transparent design. Usable over a light table for improved visibility on materials that allow some light through also.
- Non-durable. From the way that the cuts are healing on this "self-healing" cutting mat, I would be surprised if I get 25% of the life span I get from the Alvin brand mats. Even the first cuts, made with a fresh sharp blade without undue pressure left cuts that are visible and easily detectable by touch as surface breaks. I have a year old Alvin that is in better condition.
Consider this mat only if you won't use it very often for cutting. I made the mistake of giving Pro Art a third strike having purchased two other Pro Art products that failed early due to bad design (such as ruler that has its markings rub off after light use). I can't see choosing to make this mistake again.
