    David,

    surely you get score / cut lines in the material which can make a blade (unless under a lot of pressure) wander off course? i don’t even use cutting mats for the same reason!

    No, because you don’t hack through it with a stanley like you are cutting lino! It’s new scalpel blades with enough pressure to do the job. It’s covered in light scores and as 99& of the time the cuts run perpendicular and I always align my vinyl to the existing billion cut lines (force of habit) if it does follow an old cut line…it’s going in the same direction anyway.
