Back in the 1970's, Malcolm (Mal) Logan was busy inventing. An engineer by training, his creative mind led him to design and patent various products including coffee makers, aluminum Christmas trees, and metal section frames. Logan Graphic Products began when a friend who sold mat board approached Mal and challenged him to design a better mat cutter for picture framers. That led to the development of the Logan 101 Supreme Framing Mat Cutter, which was designed with innovative features including the squaring arm, mat guide and production stops. Out of that product evolved the Logan handheld mat cutters, which effectively moved Logan into the art materials industry.
While Mal's expertise helped the Logan product family grow, his own family also grew. Over the years, two sons, M. David and Curt, as well as daughter Cindy, joined the business in various capacities. In 1998, Mal officially retired and son Curt took over as President. Armed with an engineering degree and a lifetime of experience growing the family business, Curt continues to bring innovation and quality design to Logan products.
Almost half a century later, mat cutters continue to be the heart of the Logan business, though the Logan product family has expanded to include Do-it Yourself Framing Tools, Art Deckle Paper Crafting Tools, and the new FoamWerks Foamboard Modeling Tools and Accessories. Wet Paint offers a broad selection of Logan products, including the staff favorite 301-S compact mat cutter.
