    poor quality |

    I had issues with my blade cutting right through my mat even tho I had used the same settings before on that material. I does make me wonder if these are the same quality as the original mat that came with my machine.....somehow I doubt it. I asked silhouette if they were ever going to come out with a more durable plastic mat or a self healing mat...no response, they just told me to lower my blade setting which didn't help. The tack on the mats fade so fast i barely got 5 cuts out of mine before it wouldn't hold anymore. Then I tried to wash it and get the residue off so I could re-tack it using re-positional spray adhesive (youtube recommended this). The original glue residue from the mat ended up getting all over the sides when I was washing it, so I never even got to test the re-tacking method, I had to throw it out. Very disappointed with the quality of these mats, I would gladly pay more for a durable mat but they don't offer one. I will however try the Cricut mats as people have recommended and hopefully they can do the job. Thanks

    Wears out to soon. The plastic starts to curl and break at the corners making it necessary to buy at least three at a time which can run into money. I use it often but expect more for my money

    love my silhouette! |
    BOTHELL, WA, USVerified Purchase

    I really do love these mats b/c they are light weight, are see through (so if I have paper stuck to the underside, I can see it before putting it in my machine, experience talking here) and the sticky last longer. I had a cricut from 2006 until I sold everything last year to buy the silhouette cameo and really like these mats over the ones for the cricut b/c their sticky lasts longer. The major problem with these mats is the price. You only get 1 per package, not 2 like the cricut ones. But I will pay the higher price to get, at least to me, better mats.

    The mats came quickly and you need several if doing a lot of cutting. You can have one mat set for the next cutting. They last a long time if you remember to cut properly.

    Verified Purchase

    As this is a necessary part of the Silhouette Cameo, I will use this space to say that I think Amazon's subscription service for the Replacement Cutting Mats is wonderful. When you set up the subscription, you can choose how often you want to receive a new mat. Not only am I saving money (because the subscription price is literally half what I would pay in a craft store) I am also saving the time it would take me to go shop for the pieces I need to papercraft. My new mats will be shipped to me when I feel I need them, no more dealing with being out of stock at the store. Should I ever feel I have too many, I can change how often I receive a new mat. Way to go, Amazon!

    Okay mats |
    Del Rio, TXVerified Purchase

    I love my Silhouette, but usually use Cricut mats with it. The Silhouette mats are very thin and ridiculously expensive in comparison (like twice the price) I ordered these by accident, because they were still on my Amazon wishlist from before I discovered that I can use Cricut mats. I've removed them from my wishlist and will continue to use Cricut mats.

    sticky and a little flimsy |
    Verified Purchase

    These pads are VERY stick to start with (though not as bad as the cricut). There are easy ways to make it unsticky- my wife's method is just to use it profusely till it dies a sad unsticky sliced up death. It lasted approximately 25 12x12 card-stock cuts = about 2 days of use for my wife when the paper muse is on her. They are pretty flimsy and can be sliced through entirely with the wrong blade setting.

    Best mat on the planet! |
    Verified Purchase

    I can best describe this mat as a giant post-it note! When I finally have to throw out a mat it is because it is simply scarred up to bad, never because it lost stickiness! Silhouette has truly mastered the cutting mats. Warning- If you get glitter or ink etc on the mat, DO NOT try to wipe off with a baby wipe! Water will resolve the glue and create a "Windex" clean plastic window to cut up to make shaker box cards & pages! ??. Also get the Silhouette 12x24 mat, made of the same, high quality material & glue!

    Super Sticky |
    Salem, UT, USAVerified Purchase

    I never realized how crappy I let my original mat get until I got this replacement cutting mat for the Silhouette Cameo. It's WAY stickier than the original mat ever was. I initially had a problem getting things off safely, but, after some research I just ran my sweatshirt sleeve over it a few times to tone down the stickiness, and now it works great. I've bought multiples of these over the past few months, so I can get multiple projects ready to go all at once. I'd definitely recommend having 2 or 3 as backups, just in case.

    Long lasting, perfect stickiness. |
    Verified Purchase

    These mats are great. Some people say that they are too sticky, but they have been perfect for me. I generally use two different mats for different materials. One that has been broken in (less sticky) for thinner paper, and one for thicker materials. These mats have lasted me a long time. I've been able to resurrect them somewhat by using a scraper to rub off excess lint and particles. Even though these are more expensive than the Cricut mats (that you can also use in the Cameo), they last twice as long in my experience. Love the Cameo, and love these mats!

    Bought this to have a spare on hand. Generally speaking I think the accessory products you buy from Silhouette America are over-priced, especially their backing/interfacing products, but you have to use their mats. The price was decent from Amazon and the mats do work well.

    WEST BRIDGEWATER, MA, USVerified Purchase

    If you have to replace your cutting mat, this is the one to get. I use my Silhouette Cameo almost daily, and I find that I need to replace the mat every few weeks so that they stay sticky. I wish the mats would last longer, but this is the best option available at this point. I recommend buying a bunch of these so you have them on-hand when your mat stops sticking in the middle of a project!

    Poor cuts |

    I have read many reviews on the silhouette and know it is a good machine. The quality of the cuts should be superior with this machine. I have read it cuts like butter. However, the initial machines had faulty blades. I believe I must have a faulty blade. So I do recommend the silhouette if you get one that has a good blade.

    I buy these for my girlfriend who is very crafty. She love, love, loves her Cameo, but these mats really don't hold up as well as you'd think. They get gouged up (which, to be fair, is their job) and the adhesive wears out pretty quickly. They start out way too sticky, then wear in, and then wear out -- all fairly quickly. We've also gotten the cuttlebug mats which work well too, and are a bit cheaper.

    sticky mat |
    VINE VOICEVerified Purchase

    The mat is quite sticky, and material sticks to it well so not to shift during cutting. It helps to use a spatula to remove the pieces after cutting thinner materials. Use scrubber or a plastic card to scrub paper fiber from the mat. I like to have two mats on hand for loading one with material while the other one is in the machine.

    Anaheim Hills, CAVerified Purchase

    This mat does the job. It's sticky at first, but will lose its adhesiveness fairly quickly depending on the types of paper used. I go through these about once every 2 months because I'm too lazy to apply spray adhesive to bring it back to its original glory (steps on how to do this can be found easily online). I'm giving it 4 stars simply because it's pricey for what it is.

    The Silhouette mat is crap. Buy the Cricut mat instead. |
    Farragut, TN, USAVerified Purchase

    I have both the Silhouette mat and the Cricut mat. The Cricut mat is much better. It's the right amount of sticky and it lasts much longer, in terms of tackiness and longevity of the mat. It's simply more heavy duty and more durable. The Silhouette is a joke. It's too sticky at first but then loses stickiness way too quickly. Also, it just doesn't hold up to repeated use. They probably only spend a few pennies to manufacture this piece of crap.

    Prohibitively Expensive if You Use a Lot |
    Los Angeles, CAVerified Purchase

    I use my Cameo to make items that I sell. While I adore the Cameo and think it is a wonderful tool, I go through these mats like I change my socks. My Cameo gets heavy use, I understand that, but, at this price, buying Silhouette brand mats is prohibitively expensive. I may get 30-40 cuts out of a mat before it becomes questionable to use and I will do 30-40 cuts in a matter of a couple of days. Using a not-sticky-enough mat can ruin your project as the paper lifts and can become jammed in the machine. I have tried all of the popular "re-stick" options I could find on the web and they are just not very helpful. I find all Silhouette branded items to be much too expensive to use for high volume commercial purposes. Perhaps Silhouette needs a wholesale department.

I bought circut brand mats, I trimmed the feeding edge off a bit to match the silhouette because I'm too lazy adjust each time I feed it in. You get two mats for the cost of 1 and I have ran through 4 silhouette mats in the time that the circut mat is just now loosing it's tack. I very much recommend using the circut mats insteads.

    Verified Purchase

    This mat works fine for me. I panicked when I first received my order as I had been sent a smaller size than I ordered. I needed it to finish cutting flowers for Vacation Bible School. However, I called Amazon and talked to a very helpful person who arranged for the correct size mat to arrive the very next day. She also arranged for UPS to pick up the incorrect pad. I was impressed and appreciated this good service. Love shopping at Amazon!

    I use my Silhouette cutter all the time because it is so much fun. The mats,when new, are really sticky so the paper curls when you remove it from the mat. But after a dozen cuts, it is just about right!

    These are really good mats from my experience. I keep several on hand with various degrees of stickiness. I do wash them when they really used and reapply a temporary adhesive so they can be reused. I like to keep one or two with really good stick for more detailed patterns to cut.

    Ft Lauderdale, FL United StatesVerified Purchase

    Using Silhouette paper die cutter is like learning basic CAD. The Silhouette stick mat that comes with the machine works like a charm so I'm afraid to invent my own cheaper alternative. Two tips--somewhere on Amazon in a good description of refreshing the mat (block off non- sticky edges with blue painters' tape and spray Slice or similar adhesive on the sticky part to renew the mat.). It won't last forever, but it does prolong the life span. The other tip involves lining the mat up with the far left (smaller) "groove" . If your cutting starts and ends where it is supposed to, the your machine is calibrated. Calling the company's tech support almost always works.

    Silhouette Cutting Mat-- An Essential tool but seems to lose stickiness quickly |
    DallasVerified Purchase

    You can't use the Silhouette Cameo Machine without this mat. You need it for paper placement so the machine can grab the paper and cut precisely. I used several weights of paper on this mat. It's sticky because it needs to be but I found the stickiness diminished as I used different weights of paper, especially glitter paper. I found that I had to supplement the stickiness with my own glue stick-which was an OK work around but a little inconvenient. Also the paper would slip while cutting which ruined the cut. I reviewed the directions and I didn't see where Silhouette mentioned or recommended when you would need to replace the mat. I purchased a new mat and of course it works fine, but I haven't used the new one as thoroughly as the old one. Also it doesn't seem to be a self-healing mat, the cut marks stay on the mat surface. It doesn't prevent the machine from cutting a nice design but I wonder how effective the mat will be the more that I use it and the more cut marks appear on the surface.

    Verified Purchase

    This is different from the other light hld mat that I own. I definitely prefer the original - it's thicker, better stick, better cuts, longer lasting, and sketching was better. The sketching on this mat causes bumps on the back of the paper. Overall I think I just continue to use my older mat and use a regular stick mat by attempting to remove some of the stick.

    Perfect as long as you take some precautions |

    I had just recently started using the mat and recognize how many people were having issue with the mat being overly sticky. I have found that the best way to deal with this is to cut an additional blank sheet of paper into strips and place them under the item that you are going to cut. This will keep the item that will be cut on the mat. But the removal will be almost effortlessly with the portions that have the paper placed. The item also comes with a sheet that protects the "sticky" side; use that sheet when you are done cutting so that dust wont get to the cutting mat. Enjoy!

    Verified Purchase

    I usually only use my mats for cutting vinyl ((Adhesive and HTV)). Haven't really used my cameo with different materials, but I'd say that after a month, it loses most of it's stickiness. If you cut anything, on a non sticky mat, you run the risk of the material moving along with the blade, destroying the material, and giving you a heartattack... I'm sure you know how annoying that can be. I've just become really good at taping scrap pieces of vinyl down to the cutting mat once the mat loses its tack. But it makes me so paranoid. Haven't tried resticking it. Prbably wont. Just purchasing my third in a few months.

    I like the fact that I can cut a bigger piece of vinyl, but I was a little disappointed with the mat because it came with bent creases in it which made it get hung up in my cameo and ruined a few of my stencils. I have to be careful when loading it each time.

    Poor quality mats don't stay sticky after 1 day of use. I bought one, returned it. Got the new one today, same thing.

Have purchased 3 mats in 4 weeks and not one would stay sticky more than one day. This is not the same mat that came with my machine when I bought it obviously.

    Maybe I received a defective one because the adhesive was crooked and passed the lines on the mat and it shouldn't have. I needed an extra one as my original one would no longer stick, but this one was just disappointing. The adhesive was crooked so all my cuts were extremely off - so much that I ended up having to use no mat. I wish I could've returned it but I had already used and opened it. Truly a waste. I recommend if you can go to Michael's/joAnns etc and being able to physically look at it to prevent getting a defective one & that way you could use a coupon as these are pricey.

    What can I say. If you have a Silhouette Cameo, every once in while you have to replace the cutting mats so they retain their stickiness and keep your workpiece from sliding around while it cuts. It works just as it was intended.

    Warning - Wrong Size Mat Received |
    Verified Purchase

    I love Silhouette and the mats are great. However, I want to warn anyone ordering from Amazon. I ordered two of these last week. I was very dissapointed when I received my package and found the wrong size mats were sent. The description of the item is for the 12 x 12 Cameo mat. They sent the Portrait size mat.

    Great for card stock |
    Verified Purchase

    This is perfect to use with card stock. I had previously used the original mat that came with my Cameo but I needed a replacement and decided to try this mat for my card stock as new mats tend to curl my card stock. The light hold on this mat is perfect and didn't tear or bend my card stock when I removed it.

    Verified Purchase

    I recently switched to the Cricut mats and like them much better. These tend to not last as long and, if you don't get your cut correct, will even have the blade cut through the mat. Overall, the Cricket mats are thicker, more durable and less expensive. I will be using the Cricut mats from now on with my Cameo...

    Costly |
    Verified Purchase

    The mat is wonderful, but twice the cost of the Cricuit mats, and half as thin. Being so thin, if you forget to change your blade depth, you will cut right through it. I wrecked a new mat this way....the only thing holding it together is packing tape on the back. I use it for cutting manila folders into stencils.

    This mat peeled up immediately on the first use. I had to use goo gone to remove the glue from the carrier sheet of the vinyl I was cutting. Had I been cutting paper, my project would likely have been destroyed. My original mat lasted a long time and the two that I have purchased from amazon have both been defective.

    A friend of mine wants me to cut large letters for her on my silhouette to put on a mirror and this mat works just great. The mats are a little better than what I had experienced with Cricut because those are so sticky that I could never get my work off them without ripping them and with these mats I never rip my work.

    I love my Silhouette mats! They are always a great deal on Amazon. I have found that I can scrub these down when they get extra sticky and let them dry and they are good to use again. I try to use different mats for different mediums so I keep a few on hand. I would recommend these to anyone of my crafting friends!!!

    Verified Purchase

    Perfect for big projects. TIP: Try to use it putting your Cameo on a big table with plenty space at the front and back of the machine. In my case, my table is very narrow and it's against the wall, so when the machine is cutting the big cutting matt gets stuck between the machine and the wall next to the table.

    I'm not so sure about this mat... The first project I tried to cut, I couldn't get the paper off of the mat. This was a reasonably thick card stock. It left bits of shredded paper all over the mat making it useless the second time around. This is not the same quality mat I've used before. Is this legit Silhouette company?

    SUPER sticky. Of course, they're suppose to be, so it isn't a complaint. Mine arrived with a bend in one of the corners. I didn't want to hassle with a return, so I kept it.

    Purchased this mat to replace my old one, I found it extremely sticky. I searched the internet and found that placing a towel over it and removing it several times helped remove some of the stickiness, but it still tore some of my vinyl for awhile. After a period of time it became more useable and I had very little trouble.

    sticky mat |
    Verified Purchase

    The mat is quite sticky, and material sticks to it well so not to shift during cutting. It helps to use a spatula to remove the pieces after cutting thinner materials. Use scrubber or a plastic card to scrub paper fiber from the mat. I like to have two mats on hand for loading one with material while the other one is in the machine.

    The mat is extremely sticky when using it the first few times. I have to be extremely careful when taking paper off so it doesn't rip. The paper sheet ends up curled after lifting it up.

    although I have a silhouette I am not a huge fan of these cutting mats, they seem to crack really easily and they are not good if you are the time of person use repossesses them by re sticking them.

    I've used other cutting systems in the past and had to replace mats so often. I've had my Silhouette a year, and this is the first replacement mat I've had to purchase. They last forever! They have just the right amount of tack. They hold things in place to cut, but don't make you tear them trying to rip them off the mat. Love these things!!

    This is not to be confused with the standard blueish cutting mats. This is an off white, laminated, matte that has a subtle tacky surface that holds the medium in place well. I am replacing all of my blue mats with these self-adhesive white ones, as they have yet to damage paper even as light as tissue, and hold up well with regular use.

    Nice mats, but I wish they lasted longer. Perhaps the manufacturer could sell an adhesive spray that really works with these mats so we can use them a little longer. I know there are spray adhesives on the market, but I have not found anything that is not too tacky. We love our Silhouette cutters, but need our expendable supplies to last a bit longer.

    Verified Purchase

    If you have a Silhouette Cameo it is always recommended to have an extra cutting mat on hand as you never know when you will need one. I have a few mats so that I can have one for paper, one for fabric, and one for vinyl. By having extra mats you don't have to worry about the debris from the paper or fabric getting on your vinyl projects and vice versa.

    This is different from the other light hld mat that I own. I definitely prefer the original - it's thicker, better stick, better cuts, longer lasting, and sketching was better. The sketching on this mat causes bumps on the back of the paper. Overall I think I just continue to use my older mat and use a regular stick mat by attempting to remove some of the stick.

    Needed a new mat after the one that came with my machine lost it's tack. There are apparent ways to spruce and old mat up, but I could not get them to work, so I opted for a new one. Boy, did I forget how sticky the mat first is! Would recommend buying a seperate mat for each type of material that you cut, as card stock and paper can really dull your mat.

    The Silhouette Cameo 12" by 24" cutting mat does exactly what it was designed to do = cut stuff. My only complaint is that when you start off with it, it can be really REALLY sticky. Take an old shirt and lay it on there and take some of the tacky off. After many uses it does lose it's stickiness and I have found to use Scotch Adhesive to re-sticky the mat.

    Verified Purchase

    They're a bit "too" sticky at first (cardstock tore when I tried to remove it), but after about 5 uses, the tackiness is just right. I wish Silhouette sold a spray product that one could use when these lose their stickiness, though. I have "washed" these lightly, after "heavy" usage, and I think that a spray product would be a great addition.

    This mat is very adhesive and I could cut many times with it. I am storing the additional ones for new intricate cuts for lettering, pictures with intricate cuts are necessary. Remember to keep the cyan plastic sheet intact when not using the mat as dust may settle on the adhesive should you prolong expose to the environment, rendering the mat not sticky.

    It works perfectly for thin paper |
    0

    It's exactly as the description says. It has a light hold, for paper that is thinner and tends to curl when removed from a stickier cutting mat. I would not recommended using cardstock on this mat, it won't stay on while cutting, and it will jam your machine. One complaint about this that doesn't change its effectiveness, but I find odd, is that it smells really weird.

    It worked out good for me for big block letters, but when it came to cursive and any small fancy letters, it was hard to get them. I found some solutions on Pinterest though. It would really hold on to the vinyl which ended up ripping my letters. It could've been the operator also though. I was a Cameo owner for about 8 months so this is just based on the times I used it.

    I love many of the silhouette products and the mat is no exemption. I used my first mat for over 3 months very regularly. I like that it is thin and very sticky.

    This mat does the job. It's sticky at first, but will lose its adhesiveness fairly quickly depending on the types of paper used. I go through these about once every 2 months because I'm too lazy to apply spray adhesive to bring it back to its original glory (steps on how to do this can be found easily online). I'm giving it 4 stars simply because it's pricey for what it is.

The sizes are not exact matches, but the use the Cricut mat "backwards" and all is well. I had even tried resticking options for the Cameo mat. Nothing worked as well as the Cricut mat.

    I designed some complicated pocket wedding invitations, and needed to use 11"x17" metallic cardstock for each one. This mat was perfect to cut them out. I had to pre-blot with an old Tshirt to get rid of the major sticky (so it didn't tear my paper) but once that initial process is over with, just like the normal 12"x12" mats, the remaining stick will last for a while.

    so far I have liked all the silhouette brand accessories I have purchased. I hear there is a way to clean and re-sticky the mat. But I just order a new one when I need it. YOU MUST remove some sticky before you use this or you will never get your paper off it. Do this put patting you clean hands all over the mat for a few minutes. I guess the oil from your hands is what does

    This is a very heavy hold mat so be careful about placing paper and thin items on it when first using. They will rip easily.

    Makes the cutting easier |
    Verified Purchase

    I love my cameo products! they are wonderful & they allow me to complete my fun crafting projects :) One of the biggest pieces of advice is that the mat first comes quite sticky and so you NEED to use a clean shirt to "desticky" it just a little so that your materials (especially cardstock) doesn't stick to the mat. If your mat is too sticky it makes those first cuts kind of frustrating.

    If you have to replace your cutting mat, this is the one to get. I use my Silhouette Cameo almost daily, and I find that I need to replace the mat every few weeks so that they stay sticky.

I recommend buying a bunch of these so you have them on-hand when your mat stops sticking in the middle of a project!

    I bought these when they were on sale for about $8 each or so...... these are fantastic to use with the Silhouette and I highly recommend using only Silhouette Cameo Replacement Cutting Mats with your Cameo machine...... I would not substitute a Cricut cutting mat for this purpose. They are just too stiff and a bit thicker which is a possible problem causer. Only use Cricut mats with your Cricut machine.

    I buy it because there isn't an alternative but I'm not happy with it. The mat is always much too sticky in the beginning. I have to blot it with a dish towel to dull the adhesive enough to keep it from ripping my paper. It's frustrating to have to do that because it really shortens the life span of the mat and makes me feel like I'm wasting money. If anyone has an alternative method, I'd love to hear it.

    These pads are VERY stick to start with (though not as bad as the cricut). There are easy ways to make it unsticky- my wife's method is just to use it profusely till it dies a sad unsticky sliced up death. It lasted approximately 25 12x12 card-stock cuts = about 2 days of use for my wife when the paper muse is on her. They are pretty flimsy and can be sliced through entirely with the wrong blade setting.

The projects that I complete are 22" long and it was quite tiring to have to perform multiple cuts to finish one project. With the 12 x 24 mat I can now cut the item in a single project! The silhouette products are top notch and will definitely keep me coming back for quite some time to come!

    I love this Silhouette cutting mat! I've used these mats for the past two years and they've worked wonderfully. I recently bought a cricut mat and it was awful compared to these... For one, the measurements are off so you have to either 1) trim the mat or 2) guess where you think the machine will cut. Do not buy any other mats if using a Silhouette, you absolutely need this product. I will forever be a life customer of these mats.

Not a fault of the product, totally my mistake. I would completely recommend the cameo and this product!

    This is a great cutting mat, then again I have never ventured off to use different brands. I have not had a problem with this mat. I don't like to cut anything without the cutting mat, so cutting the vinyl projects on the larger mat, gives me peace of mind that my cutting project will not slip and slide-and make me waste my precious vinyl. It is still sticky even after 3 months. This is a necessity when purchasing/working with a Cameo.

    Great for long designs! Not everything is 12x12 so it's a good idea to have a long mat, it saves time so you don't have to split your designs in two. It's nice and sticky when you first get it so a good tip is to dab it all around with a clean cotton t-shirt. The only trouble I have is trying to get the protective plastic on it for when I'm not using it. If you're a silhouette addict like me then you definitely need this mat in your collection.

    I really cant' think of a single reason to buy this cutting mat again. I stupidly thought it would last as long as a standard cut mat, just with less intense adhesive. Instead this mat is basically the equivalent of a standard mat that's been well used for a couple weeks. It lost all adhesiveness after roughly 20 uses. You're better off buying a standard matt and just adhering a piece of paper to it a few times until you wear the adhesive down a bit.

    I bought these because I cut a lot of paper for my business on my Silhouette Cameo. These worked great from the first cut just like the other reviewers said. Didn't tear my paper and everything released beautifully. My problem was that after cutting about 5 or 6 sheets of cardstock the paper stopped sticking! I cant use it anymore. I'm very disappointed. I would much rather buy a regular mat and deal with a few torn sheets if I get to cut a couple hundred sheets of cardstock on it.

    This is my second mat for my Silhouette Cameo. The first one lasted about 5 months. Sure it's sticky at first, but it "normalizes" soon. I love this mat for the 12x12 size and the 1" markings on it so that I can put multiple sheets of paper in different spots and know exactly where it will cut. For the person whose cardstock tore apart on this matyou might want to look at your blade settings. You probably don't have them correctly set for depth or your blade needs replacing.

    Bought this as an extra mat for my silhouette since I was making 180+ detailed cut outs for my friend's wedding favors and wanted to speed up the process. I was lifting the paper off of one mat while cutting on this one and vice versa so I wouldn't have to wait inbetween. Starts off just as sticky as the mat that came with the silhouette so I rubbed it with a t-shirt a couple times before use and it was perfect. It didn't curl my 65lb cardstock and held it in place enough to make nice intricate cuts.

When it is brand new and you use it for the first time, you can expect that part of your paper will stick and tear. After a few uses and it loses part of it's stickiness that is when it works best for me. I feel like I don't get very many uses out of it before paper wont stick to it anymore. For now I will keep using these until I find something better.

    These mats are incredibly useful, but when you first get them they are WAY too sticky and will often rip apart your paper. I try to use vinyl on it a few times or a card stock that doesn't stick as much so that it wears it out. It also tends to lose it's stickiness fairly quickly so there is a small window of perfect use. I find that even when it's lost most of it's stickiness I can still make it work though. All in all I like it and can usually stretch it's use for awhile before having to buy a new one.

    I have a love-hate relationship with these cutting mats. At first they are too sticky and I can hardly get my cut pieces off without ripping them. Then, all too soon, the adhesive wears off or succumbs to dust in the air and the paper slides around ruining my cut. However, it is impossible to use my Cameo without a cutting mat.

    The mats don't seem to last as long as my Cricut mats did, but then again, I don't have the issue with my paper tearing. This is really the only quickly disposable part of the Silhouette; and i really don't mind. Mats come in at least two "stickinesses" and I think this is the low tac, which is probably why it doesn't stay sticky for very long (by very long, I mean I used this one mat non-stop for an entire day (10am on Saturday until I left on Sunday afternoon); I think thats reasonable to ask from a mat).

    I never realized how crappy I let my original mat get until I got this replacement cutting mat for the Silhouette Cameo. It's WAY stickier than the original mat ever was. I initially had a problem getting things off safely, but, after some research I just ran my sweatshirt sleeve over it a few times to tone down the stickiness, and now it works great. I've bought multiples of these over the past few months, so I can get multiple projects ready to go all at once. I'd definitely recommend having 2 or 3 as backups, just in case.

Have purchased 3 mats in 4 weeks and not one would stay sticky more than one day. This is not the same mat that came with my machine when I bought it obviously. Disappointed, frustrated and ready to pull my hair out. A costly mat at 10.00 when you cut 6 things and it is useless.

    Helps me to cut longer designs and keep the vinyl straight so my design doesn't go off the edge! Works perfectly with my cameo. |
    Verified Purchase

    I previously only had the 12x12 mat, but when I tried to cut longer pieces of vinyl the mat ran out or I would try to do it from just the roll. Well when I didn't use a mat and just fed the roll of vinyl in, it was impossible to keep it perfectly straight so my design would often go off the edge (I try to conserve vinyl so I cut very close to the borders). This mat is perfect to keep it straight and I can cut really long designs now without having to worry!!! Love it and have already used it numerous times since I got it a few days ago. :)

    Works well but very sticky at first |
    Verified Purchase

    I like these cutting mats, though I don't have anything to compare them too. They definitely work like they should. Now that I have used mine quite a bit it is easier to get stuff off after you have used them for a while because they are very sticky when you first use it. The worst part about the stick it sometimes the paper, even thicker paper, will roll up as you pull it off. I like it better now that it has a little less stick. I think if it started off with less stick though it wouldn't last as long so overall they have worked well for me.

    Great mats |
    Verified Purchase

    Ian learning more about the cutting machine silhouette Cameo2 everyday. These are great mats. They half the paper/card stock etc well during the process. To cut heavier textured product like 80 wt or more new mats are really helpful helpful. To cut lighter weight card stock and papers I recommend using less sticky/older mats. There are actually mats made by silhouette that have less stock to them. It is easy to tear or shape the lighter weights if the mat is too sticky. I save my old mats to do the light weights with. Silhouette makes a great product

    Doesn't last long |
    Verified Purchase

    These mats don't keep their "stickiness" for very long. For the price I would expect product that would last a little longer. I did find a woman online who gave directions for spraying repositionable spray adhesive on the mats to make them last longer. I did try this and it seemed to work ok for awhile, but the adhesive builds up on the mat and it gets gummed up. I hate that I have to buy so many of these to do my projects, but of course i will continue to buy them until i can figure something better out. overall, I am very happy with my Cameo.

    I really do love these mats b/c they are light weight, are see through (so if I have paper stuck to the underside, I can see it before putting it in my machine, experience talking here) and the sticky last longer. I had a cricut from 2006 until I sold everything last year to buy the silhouette cameo and really like these mats over the ones for the cricut b/c their sticky lasts longer. The major problem with these mats is the price. You only get 1 per package, not 2 like the cricut ones. But I will pay the higher price to get, at least to me, better mats.

    Long lasting, perfect stickiness. |
    Verified Purchase

    These mats are great. Some people say that they are too sticky, but they have been perfect for me. I generally use two different mats for different materials. One that has been broken in (less sticky) for thinner paper, and one for thicker materials. These mats have lasted me a long time. I've been able to resurrect them somewhat by using a scraper to rub off excess lint and particles. Even though these are more expensive than the Cricut mats (that you can also use in the Cameo), they last twice as long in my experience. Love the Cameo, and love these mats!

    The cutting mat is an essential part of the silhouette cutting system and it works well--for as long as it lasts. Unfortunately, that isn't as long as one would prefer. You can keep using it for a while after it looks like it's gone to war, but eventually it must bite the dust. It seems I'm constantly buying mats and blades. It's a lucky thing that the projects all turn out so nice that it makes me (almost) forget the investment. NOTE: Do stock up on Amazon. They are so much cheaper here than at Michaels or Jo-Ann Fabrics that it's like getting a free mat every couple of purchases!

    Maybe I received a defective one because the adhesive was crooked and passed the lines on the mat and it shouldn't have. I needed an extra one as my original one would no longer stick, but this one was just disappointing. The adhesive was crooked so all my cuts were extremely off - so much that I ended up having to use no mat. I wish I could've returned it but I had already used and opened it. Truly a waste. I recommend if you can go to Michael's/joAnns etc and being able to physically look at it to prevent getting a defective one & that way you could use a coupon as these are pricey.

    I bought the light hold mat for my Silhouette Cameo. I make stickers with my machine and don't love how the regular mat tends to destroy the first few sheets because it's too sticky. Thought the light hold mat was the answer to that problem but boy was I wrong. Sure it worked great for about a week! I cut about 10 sheets of stickers a day on it and it barely lasted a week before it was no longer sticky and the paper would slide off during the cutting and destroy a whole sheet of stickers. Let's just say they aren't kidding when they say light hold, don't expect to hold on to it very long.

    Cameo Replacement Mat |
    Verified Purchase

    The Silhouette Cameo Replacement Cutting Mat is exactly what I expected it to be. No better or worse than the original Cutting Mat that I received with my initial purchase of the Silhouette Cameo machine. The Mat is very sticky upon first use, but other than that I have never had any issue with the Mat at all. I have learned through my own mistakes that making sure the blade is correctly applied for the fabric, card stock, or vinyl is the most important part when using your Mat. Other than making sure my blade is positioned correctly, the Mat is exactly what I would expect it to be.

    I usually only use my mats for cutting vinyl ((Adhesive and HTV)). Haven't really used my cameo with different materials, but I'd say that after a month, it loses most of it's stickiness. If you cut anything, on a non sticky mat, you run the risk of the material moving along with the blade, destroying the material, and giving you a heartattack... I'm sure you know how annoying that can be. I've just become really good at taping scrap pieces of vinyl down to the cutting mat once the mat loses its tack. But it makes me so paranoid. Haven't tried resticking it. Prbably wont. Just purchasing my third in a few months.

    As this is a necessary part of the Silhouette Cameo, I will use this space to say that I think Amazon's subscription service for the Replacement Cutting Mats is wonderful. When you set up the subscription, you can choose how often you want to receive a new mat. Not only am I saving money (because the subscription price is literally half what I would pay in a craft store) I am also saving the time it would take me to go shop for the pieces I need to papercraft. My new mats will be shipped to me when I feel I need them, no more dealing with being out of stock at the store. Should I ever feel I have too many, I can change how often I receive a new mat. Way to go, Amazon!

    Using Silhouette paper die cutter is like learning basic CAD. The Silhouette stick mat that comes with the machine works like a charm so I'm afraid to invent my own cheaper alternative. Two tips--somewhere on Amazon in a good description of refreshing the mat (block off non- sticky edges with blue painters' tape and spray Slice or similar adhesive on the sticky part to renew the mat.). It won't last forever, but it does prolong the life span. The other tip involves lining the mat up with the far left (smaller) "groove" . If your cutting starts and ends where it is supposed to, the your machine is calibrated. Calling the company's tech support almost always works.

    Needs to be redesigned |
    Verified Purchase

    I don't think these work as well as they could. Initially their adhesive is so strong that it will tear your paper if you don't stick the mat down on a towel or something first, but the stickiness rapidly reduces until after no more than 10 pieces of cardstock I have to stand next to it while cutting to make sure that the paper stays down while cutting. It seems to work better on fabric, which doesn't tear as easily when you take it off the mat, and sticks down more completely on a used mat. I have read on the internet that they can be cleaned and fresh adhesive can be put on, but it seemed to be too complicated for me. Plan on purchasing these in bulk if you use a lot of cardstock in your silhouette.

    Perfect for card stock... |
    Verified Purchase

    You can't wait...people complain the regular mats are too sticky, they lose their stickiness too quickly, or they aren't sticky enough. But this is why I think you need a good mix of mats for what you are looking to do. Too stick and you end up curling stock paper when you remove it after cutting. Not stick enough and the paper or vinyl slips and slides as it's cutting and you waste valuable materials. That said, I have newer mats and needed one that had less stick to it and this light hold mat is just perfect for that purpose. Yes, you can use Cricut mats with the Silhouette and vice versa. It's a matter of preference...so don't let other comments deter you from trying out a few and determining what's right for you.

    Mat Not Usable; Shipping Terrible |
    Verified Purchase

    I ordered this mat in the hopes that it would speed up my cutting operations. To ship, the mat was placed in a box that was too small, resulting in severe distortion of the mat, which was not obvious until I opened the package. I tried to remove the distortion by bending the mat, but only ended up distorting it more. Had the mat been placed in a shipping box that was the correct size (i.e. at least 12" wide and 24" long), I have no doubt that it would have performed as advertised. Should you wish to purchase one of these cutting mats, try somewhere other than AMAZON. If you do purchase one from AMAZON, you might as well get ready to throw it away; the AMAZON shipping department appears to be clueless concerning how to ship it.

    Have To Replace Frequently |
    Verified Purchase

    So you actually need a cutting mat for most things. The down side is that (at least for me), they seem to loose their sticky relatively quickly? (I do tend to drop them occasionally or they slither off the counter onto the floor by accident...and I do have a dog...I try to vacuum daily...but is that even realistic with a 3 year-old?) So I find, I have had to replace them 3 times, since February...It is the beginning of October now...So 3 every 8 months. I do use my Silhouette often, but not that often. I am not running a scrap booking store or anything like that at all. Maybe cut out a dozen lambs for Sunday School one month? I don't know. A helicopter for my daughter to glue on a piece of paper for my husband? Not a factory here? Hmmmmmm.

    Prohibitively Expensive if You Use a Lot |
    Verified Purchase

    I use my Cameo to make items that I sell. While I adore the Cameo and think it is a wonderful tool, I go through these mats like I change my socks. My Cameo gets heavy use, I understand that, but, at this price, buying Silhouette brand mats is prohibitively expensive. I may get 30-40 cuts out of a mat before it becomes questionable to use and I will do 30-40 cuts in a matter of a couple of days. Using a not-sticky-enough mat can ruin your project as the paper lifts and can become jammed in the machine. I have tried all of the popular "re-stick" options I could find on the web and they are just not very helpful. I find all Silhouette branded items to be much too expensive to use for high volume commercial purposes. Perhaps Silhouette needs a wholesale department.

    Better to cut vinyl without a mat |
    Verified Purchase

    We bought our Silhouette in order to make some custom vinyl templates for acid staining concrete. Figuring we needed the mat as part of the kit, we bought this as well. While it works great for my paper projects, we found that it's simply easier to send the vinyl through on its own. The sticky surface was enough that it interfered with our ability to pull up the negatives with the transfer paper. Maybe we're just new at it, but it was definitely far easier to just put the vinyl on the concrete and then use the transfer paper to carefully remove the negatives. When we used the mat, we had problems with the letters and numbers sticking too much. As I mentioned before, there were no problems like this with my paper crafting, but something about the repositionable vinyl made it too eager to stick.

    How to get your Sticky Back! |
    0

    I am a veteran of these mats, they are good mats but annoying. I have finally solved "losing the stickiness" problem. I discovered a product called Pallet Adhesive. It is used to hold T-shirts in place as they are printed. It leaves no residue. It is a spray and I say use a mask as it is pungent. The product is on Amazon. It is called Sprayway Spray Adhesive "82" MIST not WEB. At least I bought the MIST and I am thrilled. You spray is ever so lightly (a little trial and error here) and let it dry and you will have your sticky back. So far it isn't building up but the can says it can be cleaned with a thinner. Remember, let it dry before you use it or it will make a sticky mess on the back of your material. The can is giant. 13 ounces. I bought a case and I think I have enough for a lifetime. I hope this helps. I know how frustrating it is to lose the stickiness. Just a little spritz and you are back in business.

    I had issues with my blade cutting right through my mat even tho I had used the same settings before on that material. I does make me wonder if these are the same quality as the original mat that came with my machine.....somehow I doubt it. I asked silhouette if they were ever going to come out with a more durable plastic mat or a self healing mat...no response, they just told me to lower my blade setting which didn't help. The tack on the mats fade so fast i barely got 5 cuts out of mine before it wouldn't hold anymore. Then I tried to wash it and get the residue off so I could re-tack it using re-positional spray adhesive (youtube recommended this). The original glue residue from the mat ended up getting all over the sides when I was washing it, so I never even got to test the re-tacking method, I had to throw it out. Very disappointed with the quality of these mats, I would gladly pay more for a durable mat but they don't offer one. I will however try the Cricut mats as people have recommended and hopefully they can do the job. Thanks

    Buy the mats. Check out my advice on using the mats and why you should not try to make your own. |
    Verified Purchase

    These are replacement mats. I would like to pass along a couple items of advice regarding the mats. First of all, keep 2 on hand. Yes they are super tacky at first. Some say to stick it to something linty and that will decrease the stickyness. This does work but it also cuts the lifespan short. I read somewhere that someone had better luck removing paper from the mat by turning the mat/paper upsidedown and pulling the mat away from the paper rather than the common way of pulling the paper away from the mat. This helps immensely. Take it slow. This technique also keeps the paper from curling after it has been removed. If you are using standard weight paper, you may not be able to pull it off a new mat without it tearing. I recommend using an older mat for standard paper or a mat that you have decreased the tackyness with lint. Again, having 2 on hand is a great idea. When mats begin to get too much build up of lint and paper, lightly wash them with plain or soapy water and let them air dry. Another item of advice: To anyone who thinks about making your own to save $--just pony up and buy the mats from Amazon. I am always up for making something rather than buying it, but in this case I will never do it again. I guess some people have had luck making their own but I think it is a waste of time. I read up on how people have gotten the best results. I puchased cutting mats from the dollar store. Cheap. Good. They were 11" by 15", so I cut it to 12" by 11". I wanted to at least keep the width at 12" because lots of things that you cut are made in 12" width, like paper and vinyl.. Okay, not too bad so far. Then you have to buy painters tape. You don't need much but you still have to buy a whole roll and it's not too cheap. Then you have to buy repositionable spray glue. Also not cheap. You still have to buy the whole can. Then there is the matter of marking the mat. I tried with a marker and ruler--time consuming. Also tried printing out graph paper and gluing it to the back of the mat, but you either have to piece the graph paper together or you have to go to a print and copy place to get the same dimensions. Oh, also I forgot to mention that the repositionable glue. It doesn't work well at all. I tried 2 different brands-one sputtered out and wouldn't spray anymore even though it was mostly full-and, yes, I do turn it upside down to clear the nozzle after each use. Neither one of them had lasting tackyness. I had to keep respraying, which meant also retaping. All of this attempt at making my own mats resulted in subpar mats that were too small to fit a full sheet of 12"x12" scrapbook paper and the amount of $ I wasted didn't compare to the amount of time I wasted. Time that I could have spent working on cutting projects instead.

    This mat works great for projects requiring a lot of cuts because you can put so much paper on it. You do really have to condition the mat (with an old blanket, pillow, or t-shirt) before using because your detailed designs are likely to tear very easily and it can leave a tacky residue.

    The mat was a bit too sticky at first, but after the first few cuts it was perfect. I have done over 50 cuts on the same mat and its still holding strong. If you are using a brand new mat, do some heavy cardstock cuts first before cutting thinner papers or just press your hands on it a few times. Using a T-shirt to lessen the stickiness will drastically shorten the life of the mat.

    There are other cutting mats on the market but I really feel like going name brand in this instance makes a difference.

    Verified Purchase

    If you want to cut larger than 12 x 12 papers or vinyl you need this cutting pad. Some people say they use the Cricut mats because they cost less, but they are not the correct length from the top of the mat to the cut area. There is somewhere close to a 1/2" longer space from the cut area of the Cricut mat to the top of the mat and I find that they do not load properly because of that. Also they are thicker and cause the blade to have to be adjusted differently than you would with a Silhouette mat.

    Verified Purchase

    I guess there is not a lot to say about the replacement mat other than it is exactly the same mat that came with my machine. I do the Subscribe and Save option and love having it sent directly to my home every few months. I admit when I first got my machine I didn't think I would need to replace my mat that often, but have come to love having the new one arrive every few months. Some designed just require that fresher mat and this keeps my supply going without me even having to think about it. Very pleased!

    Best mat on the planet! |
    Verified Purchase

    I can best describe this mat as a giant post-it note! When I finally have to throw out a mat it is because it is simply scarred up to bad, never because it lost stickiness! Silhouette has truly mastered the cutting mats. Warning- If you get glitter or ink etc on the mat, DO NOT try to wipe off with a baby wipe! Water will resolve the glue and create a "Windex" clean plastic window to cut up to make shaker box cards & pages! ????. Also get the Silhouette 12x24 mat, made of the same, high quality material & glue!

    Perfect as long as you take some precautions |
    0

    I had just recently started using the mat and recognize how many people were having issue with the mat being overly sticky. I have found that the best way to deal with this is to cut an additional blank sheet of paper into strips and place them under the item that you are going to cut. This will keep the item that will be cut on the mat. But the removal will be almost effortlessly with the portions that have the paper placed. The item also comes with a sheet that protects the "sticky" side; use that sheet when you are done cutting so that dust wont get to the cutting mat. Enjoy!

    Very sticky, but works great |
    Verified Purchase

    I had worn out the 12x12 mat that came with my Cameo, and I decided to try the 12x24. I am mostly cutting letter-sized cardstock, and this mat works great; I can generally put either 2 or 3 sheets of cardstock on it (depending on the pattern I'm cutting) and it will cut multiple sheets before I have to change them, which is a huge time saver. The only slight downside is that the mat is extremely sticky when new: when pulling the 110-lb cardstock off, the stickiness is strong enough to curl the paper pretty significantly. Not a problem for my purposes, but might be a bigger issue if someone was using lighter or more delicate materials.

    Love this mat! |

    I had an original Silhouette for two years before getting the Cameo and I love this mat! Early stickiness is no big deal. Flip it over on a clean surface and pull the mat away from the cut paper. After a few sheets of cardstock the stickiness decreases (or dab it with a clean cloth to de-tack it). I had a blade that was a couple of months old and it worked like new with this mat and the Cameo! My first mat I've been using for five months of heavy use and it's still going. I've added a little Krylon repositionable spray twice, and that's it. And I have a spare for backup when the sticky really does wear off. The beauty of this mat is its precision with the Silhouette Studio software for the Cameo. You wouldn't believe how precise you can get cuts!

    Silhouette Cameo cutting mat |
    Verified Purchase

    I purchased a silhouette cameo for Christmas and I needed cutting mats so I purchased this cutting mat. It fits perfectly in my machine. I have purchased 2 mats since getting my machine. They come super sticky. I recommend dabbing a cloth or tshirt onto the mat first to take some of the stickyness off. Depending on what media (vinyl, cardstock, etc) you are using it might not come off as easily. Once you take some of the stickyness away your media will be fine. I love my silhouette and the cutting mats. I'd also recommend ordering two so you have a back up once the sticky is gone after lots of use. You can clean your mats with a baby wipe and it will clean and resticky your mat so it lasts that much longer. This is an A+ product. My photo shows lots of wear & it's still going strong.

    It was time for another one of these, I had used my old one for a couple years now. But of course I didn't throw out the older one, as I save and re-purpose as many things as I can. No I am not a hoarder. Because of the size I was so afraid that they would try to roll it up to ship -- like I got the first one from Silhouette America. Nope, it shipped in a flat box and had all kinds of protection packaging as if it was glass. Some would say overkill, but not me as I don't want any bends, wiggles, creases nothing on my cutting mats. Amazon is my go to store for just about everything, but of course I do look at prices. This mat was half the cost anywhere else. With my Prime membership I got it in 2 days, free shipping. So same product, cheaper price, free shipping, can't beat Amazon.

    Verified Purchase

    I've never owned a die-cutting machine before, so the Silhouette Cameo is my very first. I purchased this light hold mat along with the starter bundle because a friend of mine complained that the mat it comes with was SO sticky that it ripped a few things she had done. I only have a few gripes with this (but they may become less so the more I use the machine). 1. It is a VERY light hold. It's practically there and not there at the same time (weird explanation, I know). 2. It seemed to hold on to cat fur better than anything I purposely put on it. Maybe after playing with the machine more and using different materials I may feel different. If that happens, I'll be sure to update my review. As far as using it with the machine, it's pretty straight forward and works well in that aspect. I do recommend like other reviewers that you keep the protective sheet that covers the sticky part of the mat (it's clear for the light hold mat) to keep dust (or fur) off of it. :)

    Verified Purchase

    Yes, the mat is way sticky at first, but using a white cotton t-shirt rubbed over it a few times makes it workable. I also use a piece of heavy white card stock and press on the sticky mat. My last mat lasted a year and no, it wasn't. Rey sticky. The trick....use a hard roller to adhere the paper to the mat. I use my mat every day and a year of wear I think is great. Again, use a hard roller(with a handle ) to adhere the paper to the mat when you feel it is no longer sticky. I have also in the past use the large 3 in one glue to rest icky the surface. Simple scrape the mat, wash down with a rough sponge of soapy water, rinse and let dry. Use the glue with 2 inch blunt tip, then let dry over night . I will even use a piece of white card stock to take off some of the stickiness. I'm good to go for months. The biggest help...use the roller folks...helps every time. I've worked with mats for over 4 years for other cutting machines and the same rule applies. Happy cutting and sticking!

    Great Mat But Struggles With Two Things +TIPS! |
    Verified Purchase

    So, full disclosure, I've never used a cutting mat other than silhouette's, so while I can't speak to its merits in comparison to other brands, I've spent quite a bit of time with it and have a good feel for its strengths and weaknesses. I got my cameo as a Christmas present and the included mat lasted me a year of sporadic but heavy duty use. First up, the pros. For anyone just starting out, cutting mats in general are pretty straight forward, essentially a thin plastic mat with a layer of sticky (but not stuck type) adhesive of varying thickness and a wax backed sheet to keep it from getting dirty/messed up in storage. This mat has a fantastic grid pattern that matches up with your silhouette's included software so that there is no confusion as to where your design is on the sheet. The grid lines are thick and dark and easy to see and the adhesive layer is a pretty generous thickness. It feeds into the machine with ease and has a really incredible gripping power that holds materials in place without keeping too much stuck to the mat after cutting. The biggest con in my opinion is its difficulty with construction paper and vinyl in particular. I have used this machine and mat for EVERY material under the sun, from overhead projector sheets to vinyl to magnets to foil and everything in between. The majority lift off of the mat just fine but the construction paper has a tendency to leave a fine "fuzz" of paper on the mat that can noticeably reduce its effectiveness. The vinyl also has a tendency to get stuck a bit too tight, which can become a problem especially when you are trying to use transfer paper to keep everything aligned. Coincidentally the company also sells a specialized hook and scraper for this very purpose so...take that for what it's worth. Overall I would recommend this mat to anyone looking for one. It loses a star due to its difficulty with vinyl and construction paper (a big problem for you teachers out there!), but earns the rest for its Saturday backing, generous adhesive later and sheer durability. PROS: Durable construction, Generous adhesive layer, Strong but flexible backing, thick and easy to read grid lines, and easy of use with cutter CONS: Has difficulty releasing vinyl and construction paper, the latter of which can leave a "fuzz" of paper particles that can noticeably reduce the mat's efficacy. TIPS: If your mat begins to lose its stick, extend its life with spray adhesive available at any craft/hardware store, If you need to keep your vinyl pieces in line and either ran out or don't want to pay for the more expensive transfer paper, clear adhesive drawer liner (contact paper) works great and is most likely sold at your local 99cent store! ***Did you find my review helpful? I hope so! Let me know if you have questions by using the comments section below ***

    Cricut mats are 1000X better. It's not your machine that's the problem, just the Silhouette mat... |
    0

    Didn't like it, but would've blamed the machine had I not tried a Cricut mat and it changed my life. The comparison isn't even close. Use a Cricut mat in your Cameo. Even if you're scared, just try it once and the difference will convert you. You'll get two for the price of less than one, it's less flimsy and just cuts better and easier. The only difference is that you need to line the paper up at the top left over the shaded numbered border that would be considered out of bounds of a Cricut, but lines up exactly with where a Silhouette mat would be. Good luck!

    Plan on using your own spray adhesive |
    Verified Purchase

    I am starting to make peace with the fact that you have to treat these mats as disposable, and plan on replacing them several times a year based on how much you use them. I just opened a new mat today, and cut several shapes. The cut was PERFECT, but as I lifted the shapes off the mat, I noticed that the adhesive on the mat came right off around the edges of the shape. When I tried to cut out the same shapes a second time on a new piece of the same type of paper, using the exact same settings, the machine literally ripped the shapes off the mat as it cut them. I can only assume this is because of the adhesive coming off on the first cut. I moved the paper to a "fresh" portion of the mat on the next try, and so far things look better. I am planning on getting some repositionable adhesive to spray the mat with the next time I use it, however. Hopefully this will prolong its life. But long story short, I don't think you should have to spend so much time fiddling with this thing to get a good end result. For all the expense of the machine and its accessories, I thin customers deserve more.

    This is my second mat for my Silhouette Cameo. The first one lasted about 5 months. Sure it's sticky at first, but it "normalizes" soon. I love this mat for the 12x12 size and the 1" markings on it so that I can put multiple sheets of paper in different spots and know exactly where it will cut. For the person whose cardstock tore apart on this mat...you might want to look at your blade settings. You probably don't have them correctly set for depth or your blade needs replacing.

    UGH! I hate this mat! |
    0

    It went from WAY TOO sticky to NOT STICKY AT ALL in less than 20 cuts. The first 5-8 cuts I made completely tore apart my cardstock. I tried Bazzill and Recollections cardstock, they were both shredded by this mat. Then I tried to de-sticky it by pressing a clean t-shirt on it. That helped me get about 8 more cuts out of it. Now it is so tackless that it won't hold anything and the paper shifts around while the Cameo is cutting. Complete fail by Silhouette. I bought a Cricut 12 inch mat that I'm going to try using with the Cameo. I've never had problems with Cricut mats before, so hopefully that will work.

    The mat is the same quality as the 12 by 12 mat that came with my Cameo. It has the same stickiness as the original mat, but it is covered in clear, not blue, protective cover, make sure to remove the cover to reveal the tacky surface. It tricked me when I first got it out of the package. Make sure to have enough space for your mat to move at the front and at the back of the machine. I am using the mat for cutting fabric - put fabric on the mat first, then cover it with clear Con-Tact paper to stabilize it, cut and then peel off the con-tact paper from the cut pieces. This way works if you do not need your fabric to have a stabilizer after the cut. I like that the mat lets me cut a whole bunch of staff in one go, I can use less material this way.

    The Cameo is my first cutting machine, and I first have to say that it is an AMAZING machine, and that this review in no way reflects the quality of the machine or the Silhouette Studio software. When I first set up my cameo, I was immediately discouraged. I used 65lb card stock and tried to cut a basic circle and the paper tore to shreds on the mat. I didn't think to make the mat "less sticky" by using a t shirt or towel, I just went for it. I had to wash the mat to get the rest of the torn paper off and accidentally removed some of the adhesive in the process. That was 2 weeks ago. Now, it is in the trash because it will not hold paper in place to save its life. I had problems with thin papers tearing, thick papers moving, and everything in between. I got some decent cuts with no extra effort about 1 week into the process, but that only lasted a few cuts. Also, there are no guides for more precise alignment for the rollers and the mat. I was really disappointed in the flimsy quality as well. I tried the 12x12 Cricut mats today and there is no contest. The price is better because you get 2 for $11 and they are readily available at my local craft stores, and I have gotten beautiful cuts with it fresh out of the package. They also have a heavier feel to them and my thin papers cut beautifully with no tearing, and the black lines on the sides help line the mat up easier. I hope Silhouette can come out with a better solution.

    How to get your Sticky Back! |
    Verified Purchase

    I am a veteran of these mats, they are good mats but annoying. I have finally solved "losing the stickiness" problem. I discovered a product called Pallet Adhesive. It is used to hold T-shirts in place as they are printed. It leaves no residue. It is a spray and I say use a mask as it is pungent. The product is on Amazon. It is called Sprayway Spray Adhesive "82" MIST not WEB. At least I bought the MIST and I am thrilled. You spray is ever so lightly (a little trial and error here) and let it dry and you will have your sticky back. So far it isn't building up but the can says it can be cleaned with a thinner. Remember, let it dry before you use it or it will make a sticky mess on the back of your material. The can is giant. 13 ounces. I bought a case and I think I have enough for a lifetime. I hope this helps. I know how frustrating it is to lose the stickiness. Just a little spritz and you are back in business.

    I've had a lot of experince with cutting mats and die cut machines. This mat is no better or worse that any other mat that comes with these types of machines. Most people that die cut alot have tips for getting the most out the mats. Here are a few of mine: -All mats are very, VERY sticky when they are brand new. They will shred your paper if you are not careful with them. Solution: Get some of the stickyness out by rubbbing a cotton T-shirt all over the mat. The barely visable fuzz from the shirt will soften the sticky to a managable level for your paper while not interferring with the blade. -Sticky wears off after time. This is not really true but it seems like it. The real problem is dust and paper fibers adhere to the mat over time and block the sticky. Solution: Rinse with cool water and rub some dish soap with your hands over the mat. This will remove the debris thats blocking the sticky. Let air dry when done. -Washed the mat way too many times and now the sticky really IS gone. This happens much later on in the life of the mat. Solution: Buy a can of spray adhesive (Making Memories Slice Removeable Adhesive works GREAT) or a broad tipped glue pen and reglue the mat yourself. Make sure it is completely dry before use. If you chose to use a Spray, make sure the unsticky edges of the mat are covered before you spray so they stay that way. You can YouTube "Reglue Cricut Mat" for the technique. Hope this helps with the mat problems alot of reviewers are having. Rest asured, this is typical and normal issue and not at all exclusive to this machine or this mat.

It loses a star due to its difficulty with vinyl and construction paper (a big problem for you teachers out there!), but earns the rest for its Saturday backing, generous adhesive later and sheer durability. PROS: Durable construction, Generous adhesive layer, Strong but flexible backing, thick and easy to read grid lines, and easy of use with cutter CONS: Has difficulty releasing vinyl and construction paper, the latter of which can leave a "fuzz" of paper particles that can noticeably reduce the mat's efficacy. TIPS: If your mat begins to lose its stick, extend its life with spray adhesive available at any craft/hardware store, If you need to keep your vinyl pieces in line and either ran out or don't want to pay for the more expensive transfer paper, clear adhesive drawer liner (contact paper) works great and is most likely sold at your local 99cent store! ***Did you find my review helpful?

    I can't tell you the difference this has made for my vinyl biz. It has been soooooo nice. This is an absolute must if you are cutting vinyl. Plus, you save on the amount of vinyl you use. Totally worth it!
