Q: Why are my mats not coming out square?

A: First off understand that full sheets of matboard bought at a store will most likely be un-square. To insure all four sides to be square, you must cut all four sides in a perfectly square mat cutter. If you still have the problem consult the instruction manual on how to check and re-square your squaring arm. (machines that have squaring arms only)
