This is my go-to mat when starting any project. It has various measurements to work on, wipes clean,
and accommodates many sized-projects. The mat is beginning to tear where it folds (slightly). I have not tried a self-healing mat.
This mat is a nice size and color but I do not recommend for cutting or using a spring action eyelet setter. It is not self healing and the cuts will stay and the mat will become rough. I made one slice and one hole to know not to do it again. I sue a small self healing cutting mat to do use my eyelet setter this mat is for my measuring and to use a smooth surface when scrapping
