Dahles Vantage® Self-Healing Cutting Mats are extremely durable and provide 1/8 of work surface protection. This 24 x 36 professional grade cutting mat features 5 layers of PVC construction with screened inch, metric, and angled alignment guides. Vantage® Mats can be used on both sides and are ideal for sewing, crafting, rotary cutting, and cropping photos. SELF-HEALING DURABILITY- Outstanding self-healing ability allows cuts to virtually disappear, maintaining a smoother surface and extending the life of the mat and your cutting blades. For versatility, you can use the mat on both sides. Use the top with the rulers and guides for precise trimming, and use the reverse side for free-hand work. PVC CONSTRUCTION- This is no standard cutting mat! The 5-ply PVC construction creates a solid, non-glare worksurface. The thicker inner core stabilizes the mat while the outer, resilient layers offer superior self-healing capability. This mat has no odor and is stiffer, more durable, and more stable than lower quality mats. SCREENED GUIDES- Whether you are cutting quilting squares, trimming photos, or creating works of art, align your work precisely with the ½ grid and inch and metric rulers. Diagonal cuts arent a problem with the 45° and 60° diagonal guides.
