I got mine (6" x 12") at Hobby Lobby with a coupon a few years ago, but haven't seen them there recently. You can get them on Amazon, possibly other places. I use mine in place of the regular plate that would be on the cutting side. It's slightly thinner than the acrylic plates so I have to shim it, but I often had to shim with regular plates to get a decent cut, too, so it's no big deal to me. One thing that I like is that I get great cuts every time with the proper shim. One thing that is potentially problematic is that tiny bits of paper can get embedded in the mat, since it's self-healing. To solve that issue, I just sort of bend the mat (it's flexible) to open the cuts and wipe it with a microfiber cloth (Zwipes) - problem solved!
