I mostly cut fabric pieces, with iron on adhesive attached. It used to cut beautifully with the older style mats, which were more opaque and stickier. These barely hold onto the fabric. I actually have to scotch tape it around the edges, and then because the fabric jumps around the cut is not as clean.
Also, they smell funny. This probably wouldn't bother me if the product was otherwise good. But they smell kind of like brand new bath toys - pvc? - and it seems to linger in the room for a while....
I did email silhouette about these and learned that this redesign is unfortunately a permanent change. Here's what they said:
"The mat in question would represent a product adjustment made to the light-hold mat product. The new style of light-hold mat offers a lighter adhesive level in order to avoid curling fine or delicate paper materials as they are removed from the mat. Though some materials may not stick as well to the mat and come off very easily, please rest assured that the horizontal adhesive level should secure the material in regard to its side-to-side tension in order to ensure proper cutting alignment."
I will continue to use these because I have no other options. The regular hold mats stick too strongly to the paper backed adhesive and take me 20 minutes to get all the paper off. These are just nearly disposable. I can use them like 3 times and then have to get new ones.
I'm back to using my old, worn, barely tacky mats. :(
The light hold mat is wonderful! It holds my card stock and sticker paper in place and allows me to remove it easily after cutting without spending the next 20 minutes peeling away scraps of ripped paper. Frustration free? Yes!
Alternatively, I haven't used my Silhouette to cut fabric yet, but I imagine that a very sticky mat such as this would be perfect for fabric.
