Got mine at M's in the sewing section black on one side and green on other side. Great price after using a 40% off coupon.

-I have the very large (24x36) Martha Stewart Cutting Mat that fold in 3 for storage. I love it, the only issue I have is that one of the edges is a bit wonky...it doesn't lay completely flat on the table. It is a grey color, and one side is a grid with measurements and the other side is a plaid like pattern
-My mom has a giant mat (probably 36x48?)that is a made for quilting (as the previous poster suggested)and it is great! It is dark green.
Both of these were purchased at M's with a coupon

I have an excellent mat by Prima. It's turquoise on one side and black on the other. As far as the size, I think it's 24x36 and fits nicely on my desk. As far as a larger one, I think you'd have to shop in the quilting/sewing section.
Gingher makes a beautiful large black mat that's pretty large, but pricey even with a I've seen it at joann.com. I have a huge Olfa mat from when I was quilting regularly but it's green.

I know this isn't what you asked for but I wanted to mention it. I got a glass top made for my scrapping table. I LOVE it! I no longer need a cutting mat, it's the best!

Wal-Mart might even have some in their sewing section as well.
Can you tell I don't have many options where I live??

Just keep in mind that blades will blunt faster on glass, but it is an excellent cutting surface. I was considering getting a piece for detail cutting.
mats - the self healing ones are great! I bought mine years ago (like 9 yrs) and they're still in fab condition
