Top critical review
on 1 January 2015
Having a grid, this mat allows you to place bits of paper for precise cutting when you aren't using a whole sheet (unlike the Craft Robo, the Silhouette Portrait software doesn't seem to have a function where you can place the blade where you actually want to start cutting a specific shape). But there its usefulness ends - it is flimsy, has a funny adhesive that doesn't hold some media and sticks so firmly to other that they don't come off cleanly, and because it is so thin and flimsy it shifts during cutting! The latter is particularly annoying with very intricate cuts. I shall stick to my old Craft Robo carrier sheets, which allow far more accurate cutting, are sturdier and easily refreshed with 3-M spray adhesive.
