The 32-Inch Compact Elite Mat Cutter from Logan is designed to cut mats of any length. Most mat cutters have 2 closed ends, limiting the size of the mat boards they can cut.

      After waiting what seems like years to buy this, I can't believe I waited so long to buy this.It Is So Very Simple To Use! And the results are professional, clean and as advertised.Just finished cutting my first mat - a double - this afternoon after reviewing the clearly understandable video dvd which comes with the package. Really very nice. Exactly as I hoped.Since I can purchase 36" x 48" stock mat board at the local art supply, I told myself I should be doing this instead of paying the high cost of pre-cuts at the frame shops. As I did my first panoramic at 9" x 18", this would have cost even more to custom size over stock frame/mat sizes.I can't express enough how NICE it is to do this myself, with the freedom to create sizes which I can afford to present. If you've thought about creating your own, this model is a no-brainer. Hinges and hardware are solid, parts are well- labeled, instructions are clear (on the dvd, anyway...didn't read the user manual/visual learner, here... :) )and the result are wonderful.Only one complaint, and it's a pretty lame one, too...The package is designed to be a carry-all and storage for the cutter and accessories when not in use. Great Idea! They put the plastic carry handle on the wrong side of the box, allowing everything to fall out if the lid is not secure. Bad Idea!A piece of painter's masking tape takes care of the problem, but just saying... :/

      I didn't expect I'd have to re-parallel the mat guide on a brand new product, but when my borders were a bit off, I discovered the mat guide was not parallel. The instruction manual gives instruction on how to do this. The results are good now.

              Does everything it is supposed to and does it well, lots of vids on the net for instructions. If you want to make custom size mats to fit digital formats, it is great. After the initial investment you will save greatly on mats and not be limited to what size/colors are locally available. Easy to use and functions wonderfully, a great product. Double mats can be tricky at first, but watch the vids available and you will master it!

                I needed a mat cutter for occasional use (I usually let my print buyers choose their mat from a professional framer), and the reviews suggested the 350-1 might just be a good buy. It is. It's definitely not a production cutter, but for small volume, and with care, it does a fine job. My yardstick is the ability to cut a double mat with even borders; the 350-1 does it fine. I'd call it more 4-1/2 than 4 stars, but I don't have that option.

                      Comments about Logan Graphics 32" Compact Elite Mat Cutter:

                      I decided to buy the cutter because framing companies in my area charge a lot for framing. I ordered the Logan Compact Elite Mat Cutter 350-1 on 12.30.13, with the free shipping option, and received it on 01.05.14 - 2 days before expected delivery day. I spent about 15 minutes reviewing the CD and finding how to use with different options.
                      I found it really straightforward to use, both in straight and beveled cuts. After a few tries on a spare piece of mat I was able to produce frames of the same quality as the framing companies. The cutter will pay off just after framing in a 3 months. I could not be happier.
                      Thank you B&H for selling good products and excellent customer services.

                        This is the second mat cutter I've used, so I have something to compare it to. I found it easy to use right out of the box with a ton of handy features. The only drawback that I've encountered so far is that it is difficult to square up your mat and I end up using a ruler to double check myself before I make a cut. A second ruler for setting length would be handy. This is a huge step up from my other mat cutter and I would recommend it to anyone shopping in this price range.

                        Elegant in its simplicity and functionality. Made great mats within minutes. I do think the mat cutter could be improved by having wider base with which to square up large pieces of mat board for totally square cutting--there is only about a 4' piece of aluminum in this design. Also the perpendicular measuring arm mount is rather loose, allowing the to wobble about.

                              Since I very often make prints that don't fit traditional frame or mat sizes, having my own mat cutter really helps the presentation process. Great product, easy to use, comes with how-to DVD, stores easily.

                              I didn't expect I'd have to re-parallel the mat guide on a brand new product, but when my borders were a bit off, I discovered the mat guide was not parallel. The instruction manual gives instruction on how to do this. The results are good now.

                                    Good value purchase. It takes some time getting used to, specially cutting the corners correctly. Once you master the corners it is very easy to use.

                                        I have a smaller Logan from many years ago. Predictably the old one is heavier and the pieces more substantial. But the new one, large enough for matting my 17x22 prints from the Epson 3800 is very good. And the design has been improved in small but important ways. They've changed the direction of the blade so as the cut begins, inadvertent matt movement has been eliminated---and no more need for that thumbnail to hold the matt as the blade is lowered. Terrific piece of engineering and great for serious work---not quite right for business; right for serious artist/photographer not doing mass production. Documentation and video instruction and matt cutting app. Nice package.

                                          I use this product for basic mounting of B&W prints. The best thing about the product is the accuracy of the cuts. It worked the very first time just like in the instructional DVD which amazed me. It can also be used for trimming a matt board if needed. A simple product doesn't take up much space in my dark room.

                                            tried cutting mat by hand and despite having a very sharp knife found that it was near impossible to cut let alone cut straight. I got this and the difference was night and day I now have professional looking mat and as the highest size I go is 18x24 I can buy a sheet of 24x36 mat and good to go for 2 for [$] cheaper than I could get it before. Also BHphoto sent it and I received in less than a week.

                                                    I am an amateur painter. I love my compact elite. It is easy to use and although I have not used it a lot yet, it is easy to use and the instructions and DVD that came with it were concise and clear. B&H was easy to deal with and sent the product quickly.

                                                      I finally purchased this mat cutter in order to mat a bunch of pieces for an art show. I can't believe I waited this long! I'm very pleased with this cutter, it's easy to use and does the job. The only slight downside: The right arm of the cutter, which serves as a ruler, can cause pressure marks on your mat board when you press against it and finish the cut. This is easily remedied by keeping a scrap mat beneath yours, or by holding down on your mat to the right of the blade during the final 2 inches of the cut. Overall I'm very happy with this purchase.

                                                          The Compact Elite Mat Cutter was a lot easier to use than I had anticipated, even on my first try. The CD made it all very easy to setup and make perfect cuts every time. Having a small work area the 32" was just the right size.
