I've had my expression for a couple of years now, but have never needed to cut on a 12 x 6 mat. Now I do! However, there is a problem. When I have the mat flush to the right (as it should be), the left side of the mat is no where near a "rubber feeder" on the paper roller. When I press load paper, it goes in somewhat okay, but as soon as it starts cutting, the mat slides all over the place. I've tried gently holding it in place, but that doesn't work. The only solution I can think of is to cut some off my mat off and turn it sideways (as if it were a 12 x 12), but I don't want to do that since my mats are brand new.

Has anyone else run into this problem? Has anyone tried moving the rubber feeder out of it's proper place so it will grab the mat?

Any help would be appreciated!

The 6x12 mats aren't designed to go in the E. it can actaully cause damage. If you need something cut to fix on a 6x12 paper why not just place that size paper on your 12x12 mat and use the set paper size and then fit to page?

I'm not using my 12 x 12 because they are all worn out and I didn't want to have to deal with buying spray- on temp adhesive. Also, our local Walmart (the ONLY place for me to shop within a 2 hour radius) doesn't carry the 12 x 12 any more. In fact, they hardly have any Cricut stuff at all. Why can't things just work the way I need them to??? Angry

Thank you for your reply! I really appreciate it.

I've read on the MB where some people have measured the 6 x 12 mats with the 12 x 12 mats and cut the excess off the top and bottom so it fits sideways in the Expression.

PC really doesn't want you to use the 6 x 12 mat in the Expression.

The mats are really tough to cut so I would just order from Walmart or maybe Ebay.

FYI:

You can order 12 x 12 ($12) and 12 x 24 ($14) mats on walmart.com and have them either shipped to you or shipped FREE to your store so you can pick them up there.

I have cut my 6x12 to fit my "E" and have used them quite often. You just have to be really careful and not forget that you only have a small mat in there. I have also taken 12x24 mats and cut them in half to use with problems.
