Artistix Carrier Sheet for Brother Scan N Cut
**SOLD OUT OF MATS FOR S-DX SCAN N CUT MACHINES**
MATS FOR ALL OTHER SCAN N CUTS STILL AVAILABLE
We are the only stockist of Artistix Carrier Sheets for the Brother cutting machines in Australia.
We 100% recommend this mat over the genuine Brother Mats when it comes to cutting cardstock in particular. They keep their sticky for much longer.
We purchase all our stock from Artistix Direct, so you are getting the genuine Artistix mats from the UK.
They will work for all the Scan N Cut / Design N Cut machines.
If you have the DX Machine - please select the mat made particularly for this machine.
PRICE COMPARISON FOR ONE MAT:
*Our price works out $7.50 cheaper than buying direct through the UK company when being posted, and $15.50 cheaper when being picked up from Harrisdale WA.
*Our price is $5 cheaper than the Brother mats purchased from Spotlight when picking up from Harrisdale WA, and $4.50 more expensive if being posted - but please keep in mind this will save you money in the long run as you will not need to purchase as many mats as you would the Brother mats, as they have a longer life span when used correctly.
**IF BUYING 3 OR MORE, PLEASE USE DISCOUNT CODE 'ARTISTIX' FOR A 10% DISCOUNT** (Orders will be refunded in full if used for only 1 or 2 mats)

Tips and tricks:
*To easily remove cut material from your mat, gently bend the mat until one edge of the material releases. Slowly remove enough material to grasp, then place mat and material on a flat surface and pull the mat away from material until released
*Remove material from the mat using an upward motion, rather than pulling it back over the top of itself. This will help prevent the cut image from curling
*Remove all negative pieces around the cut image and then lift your image off the mat using a plastic spatula
*When your mat is new, just use your fingers to lightly press the material onto your mat
*When your mat is worn in, use more pressure, or use a brayer to help your material stick to your mat
*Keep your hands off. The oils in your fingers quickly contaminate the adhesive on the mat, causing it to lose its stick. Try to avoid touching the adhesive if possible
Care and attention:
*After each use, clean all media from your mat and replace the dust cover to keep the mat surface free of paper scraps and dust.
*Never store a mat that still has media attached to it, as the mat adhesive will absorb unwanted fibres.
*Baby wipes contain moisturiser which can weaken the adhesive
*Alcohol wipes can neutralise the adhesive
*To refresh the mat use really light tack masking tape/lint roller to remove dust & fibres but only when the mat start to lose its strength & not between every cut. Test the masking tape on a small area first. If the tape is too strong it can pull the adhesive away. Also it needs to be lightly dabbed, just enough pressure to remove dust & fibres
*Don't use solvents anywhere on the sheet ever.
*When the tack is completely flat the mat can be washed with hot water to and left to dry. This can regenerate the adhesive a number of times
*Laying the sheet dust sheet down under a heavy book when not in use also helps re-constitute the adhesive and stops the sheet from warping.
*The sheet and markings are designed to last longer than the adhesive but if you plan to re stick the mat please take care as the machine will not recognise the mat if it is warped or the registration marks are damaged
