Properly Caring for Craft Cutting Mats

Having the proper tools for your project will make all the difference. The craft cutting mat can either make or break your project. If your mat is worn out and beaten down, your cuts will reflect that. Typically you can expect your self healing cutting mat to last about 1,000 cuts. Here are just some ways you can lengthen the life of the mats you purchase:

  • Keep Them Out of Harm's Way - It is always a good idea to put your mats away the moment you are done with them. This will keep them safe from liquids that get spilled, children, and even pets.
  • Never Store Your Mat Without a Proper Cover - When you purchase your mats from CraftDirect, most of them will come with a plastic cover over the sticky part. Whenever you are done cutting with your mat, it's so very important to place this cover back on them. This will keep them from building up dust or other debris.

Here at CraftDirect, we want you to get the most out of the products we have to offer. By properly caring for cutting mats for crafts, you will save in the long run.
