Why Quilters Love the GO! Cutting Mat-6" x 12":
- Specially formulated cutting mats are part of the precision system that makes the GO! cutters and dies so efficient.
- Cutting mats can withstand hundreds of cuts on both sides before a replacement is needed.
- You can use the same cutting mat for a variety of dies, so there’s no need to purchase a separate cutting mat for every die you own.
- Mats are designed to fit the same size die board so it’s easy to know which mat to use. You can also use smaller-sized mats on different-sized die boards to cover only the shape you want to cut. This will exponentially help your mats to last even longer.
- Cutting mats protect the rollers on the cutter and keep the fabric from shifting while it’s being cut.
- 7 cutting mat sizes available: 6" x 6", 6" x 12", 6" x 24", 5" x 10", 10" x 10", 10" x 24" and 14" x 16".
Cutting Mat Tips:
- It may be time for a new cutting mat when you notice that the die is not cutting through the fabric all the way.
- Recommend keeping an extra cutting mat on hand if you’re intending to use your cutter regularly.
- Rag dies tend to wear out the cutting mats much more frequently due to the number of blades.
- Prolong the life of your cutting mats by alternating the sides each time, so you’re not cutting in the same spot every time.
- Store mats flat and avoid direct sunlight.
- Replace mat when cutting performance of die is reduced or mat shows excessive wear.
- Do not use warped mats.
- To clean, use lukewarm water and mild detergent. Avoid harsh chemicals.
