The compact mat cutter is easy to use. All it takes is a few practice cuts to get the feel for the right pressure and you're off and running. Once you've mastered the straight cuts, it's time to get fancy and add designer cuts to the mats. Using the mat cutter to make your own mats reduces the cost of buying pre-cut mats. It's easy to find mat scraps at all framing stores or buying in bulk is another great cost saving option.
