This 5.5x8.5 Grip Mat fits perfectly in our 6x9 Media Mat. It's not always "the bigger, the better" when it comes to Grip Mat sizes. Our stencil sizes are usually 5.25x6.5 or 6x6. This 6x6 Grip Mat is the perfect size for stenciling with our stencils — simply leave a little corner of your stencil hanging off the mat so you can easily peel it off when you are done inking.

The Waffle Flower Grip Mats are designed to gently hold your stencil and cardstock in place during stenciling and ink blending. When using cardstock alone, the smoother the paper, the better the grip. This mat reduces the need for taping significantly, so you can spend more time playing!

Made from high-quality photopolymer, stickiness is a natural property of the material. You can use this mat repeatedly without any adhesives or glue. Between uses, refresh the surface with a dampened, lint-free cloth. Peel the mat off the cardstock to minimize warping.

When needed, use the included printed Guide below or above the mat to aid your placement. The Guide is slightly smaller than the mat, so you can leave it on the back of your mat to help easily move it in and out of your work surface. To prevent any print transfer, always apply the Guide to the mat with the reversed side facing away from the mat.

If the mat loses its cling, clean it with water or photopolymer-safe cleaners. If using soap, rinse well under running water—do not leave it in the sink. Never use alcohol or other chemical-based cleaners. Return it to the transparent sheet for storage. Do not stack heavy items on top.

User experience may vary depending on the size, weight, and texture of the paper. Low spots and air bubbles are normal and should not affect the mat's ability to grip. Avoid contact with foiled images and fine glitters/powders. Avoid contact with sharp edges or abrasive materials. Wear and tear are expected with regular use.

Grip Mat is a Keeper

The 5.5x8 fits in my MISTI and works perfectly. Paper stays down with no magnets and doesn't tear or get weird when lifting up. Perfect for stencils. I want the big one now!!
