From The Manufacturer

Caution: Some Cutting Mats Are a Health Hazard! Cutting mats made with untreated material (i.e. Chinese imports) are usually laden with toxic heavy metals and VOCs that can cause a variety of health issues… Even buying a name brand mat is not without problems: * Some crack, some warp and some don’t self-heal as they’re supposed to * … because most are now made in China too! Ours Mats are Safe and Odorless: EN 71-3 Compliant (Newest EU Safety Standard) Our mats were independently tested in 2016 to be EN 71-3 compliant (free of heavy metals and harmful chemicals). EN 71-3 is the most stringent chemical standard to date, published by the EU in 2015 for children’s toys Self-Healing, For Real We are a several decade-old cutting mat specialist, and our 5-step manufacturing process produces high material density, so cut marks heal in seconds and your cutting mat stays smooth for years Accurate Grid Markings on Both Sides (inches / cm) We tested to ensure grid lines are accurate, and you get both metric (cm) and imperial (inches) measurements, one per side, for quick measuring & line-up Now is a fantastic time to try our mats, because you get free extended warranty during this promotional period (ending soon)!

Expert Reviews


What reviewers liked

Have higher material density, providing superior healing properties per square centimeter. The cutting mat has 15 thin layers of a self-healing material.
This is a versatile cutting mat, and will work equally well with rotary cutting blades or any other type of blade you may use in a craft setting.
It resists warping and cracking even when exposed to direct sunlight when it is not stored flat. This alone makes your mat more durable and comfortable.
Won’t warp or crack easily (even if not stored flat).

What reviewers didn't like

Heavier compared to other models.
It's expensive.
Numbers may peel off if a tape is used to clip materials to the mat.
