Quality Mat Cutter

Comments about Logan Graphics Simplex Classic Cutter - 40":

As a photographer, I got sick of paying big dollars for getting photos matted and decided to start doing it myself. This is a simple, straight-forward mat cutter for first-timers like myself. It comes with instruction manuals, a how-to-frame manual, and DVD. YouTube is also a great source for learning how to use it. This cutter is extremely well made. The base is heavy and solid and the squaring arm is long enough to square even the 32X40" mats. It makes clean, straight lines and corners and the dual production stops are very handy to have (some models only have one production stop).One thing to be aware of is that the depth of the blades are made for standard thickness mat board. If you use a thinner mat board, be sure to practice beforehand, because it over-cuts the corners. This is not a problem with standard mat board because the cut is set for it, but practice beforehand so you know how much to compensate for different thicknesses.This is a great mat cutter and well worth the investment!

Comments about Logan Graphics Simplex Classic Cutter - 40":

This mat cutter is so easy to use - not much different than a rotary paper cutter (the only difference being that you have tools to set the cut perfectly where you want it) - that fellow photographers complimented me on my first set of cuts (16 bevel-cut mats for my portfolio photos) and were amazed they were my first! They all said cutting mats was hard, but they must not have tried a cutter like this one because it is very simple to use. I definitely recommend this cutter, especially if you find cutting mats hard!Setting up the cutter was easy and using it was easy (I had watched the video online prior to receiving the cutter, so was familiar with how to use it). My only disappointment is that I either did not realize that for a little bit more money I could have gotten the Elite version, which comes with an 8-ply mat cutter, glass cutter, and a few other tools. Had I known that (or maybe the cutter wasn't in stock at the time), I definitely would have gotten that version instead. Now I have to pay the same price as the price difference just to get the one 8-ply cutter, which is something I will purchase in the future. So, definitely look into getting the Elite version (750 I think) unless you are certain you will never cut 8-ply mats, glass, etc.I recently purchased a pack of 100 replacement blades so I will have plenty in stock for my cutting, as it is recommended to replace the blades often, such as with each project/batch of mats. You want to make sure you are only cutting with sharp blades!
