I still have nothing but great things to say about this mat...I did notice the price has gone up on it, but I would expect that as nothing stays the same price year to year...I have had no problems butting the 2 mats together to make for one large cutting surface. I did put some of the rubberized shelf lining one can purchase from the dollar store under them as an added "help" in making sure they don't slide around while I am cutting...the 1st board I bought is almost 2 years old, and I must say the surface of it is still in great shape! I would consider myself pretty heavy duty into quilting...I use the mat probably every couple of days, and when I use it, I use it...So, summing up, I still highly recommend this mat. I also say even with the price increase, it is a bargain if you compare the cost of an Olfa mat to it...
Update: June 14, 2011- I just ordered a 2nd mat, not because the 1st one is worn out, but because the price is too good to pass up, and I can put them together to have a really big cutting area. The 1st mat I ordered does have some areas where it is obvious that I cut at that measurement often, but it has had no impact on how the mat works. I also compared this mat with Fiskars and Olfa brand mats, and this mat is much thicker, more pliable, and has not remotely warped on me. I use this mat a lot with my quilting, it is a great size, and so far has held up wonderfully! The price is much better than other brands, same size mat surface. Having the black side as well as the green also comes in handy. I just received my 2nd mat, and it is just as good as the 1st one, and most importantly has no chemical odor! Highly recommend this mat!
I am extremely happy with the quality and performance my mat. It is a little heavier and thicker than the other brands I've seen -- Olfa, Fiskars, and Dritz/Omnigrid, but that is all to the good. I highly recommend this mat to anyone who is looking for a good mat, and especially to those who want one that is larger than the standard.
To my surprise, the Alvin mat turned out to be much thicker and and there was an annoying drop when the cutter reached the ridge between them. I also found that the Alvin mat was truly self-healing while my Fiskars mat was filled with gouges. The quality of the Alvin mat was so good that I ordered another in the exact same size and now have a nice large cutting surface that is also easy to store.
As I hoped when ordering, the mat fits my cutting table perfectly. I can cut with impunity and not worry about damaging the wood finish of the table.
After months of use (about 10 quilts and a few garments), it has held up well so far. Cuts heal instantly and completely and it still looks brand new.
The mat is resilient - not too soft or hard. This makes it easy to cut without applying a lot of pressure, and helps keep the rotary blade sharper longer.
The only drawback I've found so far is that the grid lines on the mat do not line up with my Omnigrid cutting rulers. I can use the lines to make sure the fabric is squared, but have to use the ruler's lines to get an accurate cut. The mat's grid lines are closer together than the cutting ruler, resulting in a discrepancy of about 1/4 inch per yard. (Hmmm, my local quilt shop uses these mats to measure and cut. Am I getting shorted?)
On the whole, a good mat, especially if you need it in a bigger size.
