I have a feeling I need a new rotary cutting mat. Both of mine are probably 15 years old and even with a new blade, my cutter isn't working well. The mats do have some grooves in them. When should they be replaced?
I bought a new mat today and the blade is cutting like a dream. Don't know why I didn't think of this before. I'll bet I've been using the old mats longer than I realize! Thanks, everyone.
A mat is not a cheap investment, but a very important one.
