    Sounds like you may have a Martelli mat. I'm going to try it out. Thanks!

    I will definitely check it out-thank you!!

    Have you tried flipping it over? Not sure if the Olfa brand are gray on the back, but many mats are.

    I have an olfa mat and have never had a problem but I also cut at the kitchen table with a ceiling fan and light overhead

    I have a gooseneck table lamp over mine. Try that first if you have one around. My cutting table is in front of a sunny window and don't use it that often.

    Cutting Mat advice/suggestions needed

    I've been working with a lot of dark fabrics lately and they don't show up well on my Olfa cutting mats. Does anyone have a different mat that would work with darker fabrics? Or is there another way to work with the green ones that I have?
