Quartet Natural Cork Tiles, 12" x 12", Modular, Frameless

Quartet Natural Cork Tiles
The cork is all natural and has a self-healing feature so that pin holes will not be left behind.
Create a custom cork board
Quartet Natural Cork Tiles
The tiles can be used alone or as a group to create a fully tackable cork bulletin board.

Cork tiles offer virtually unlimited versatility. Modular functionality allows each 12" x 12" cork tile to be used alone, or placed alongside other tiles to maximize the tackable surface. The frameless design of the tiles allows them to hang seamlessly next to each other, or you can leave space in between for a more creative, and stylish look. Like with any standard bulletin board, items can be quickly and easily tacked up on durable cork surface using push pins. The cork is all natural and has a self-healing feature so that unsightly pin holes will not be left behind when you take down your display items. At 1/4" thick, the cork also has the ability to absorb noise which is an added plus in busy households and work environments. Mount cork tiles to any wall, in any configuration, with the included self-stick adhesive tape and you've got a custom cork board. Cork is designed for light use and is suitable for work, home or school display purposes or for use in arts and crafts projects. 100% Satisfaction Guaranteed.

Frameless, modular cork tiles are popular because of their varied functionality. The tiles can be used alone or as a group to create a fully tackable cork bulletin board that matches your style and meets your needs. Cork tiles are sold in packs of 4 or 8; 4 pack available in natural or dark cork.

They worked well for my project and I am really happy with them.
JudyM
The cork square would have probably been ok, but the self stick adhesive tape was useless and the tiles keep falling off of the wall.
Kathy Curtis
Maybe I just got a bad package of tiles and this will never happen again.

Last Friday, my wife bought several packages of the Quartet Cork Tiles. She wanted to provide our daughter with a place to hang pictures etc. without taping them to her wall. The package claimed easy installation with no tools necessary and self-stick pads were included to fasten them to the wall. So far so good.

It quickly became evident that the properties of the cork and the properties of the self stick pads exhibited an effect that NASA would be interested in. While the self stick pads adhered to the wall like gorilla glue, they rejected the presence of cork like Damien being dragged into church in the Omen. If NASA were to fashion a cork rocket and cover the launch pad in self-stick pads, the rocket would reach orbit very quickly indeed.

Of course, the other property of the self-stick pads would them become apparent. They are virtually impossible to remove from anything but cork.

Fortunately, I was able to fashion a solution. I cut a piece of plywood the size and shape required. Then I wood glued the cork tiles to this. I hung it on her wall like a picture. Not elegant, but functional. It also hides the disgusting remnants of the self-stick pads that remain behind.

Of course, that made the "no tools necessary" claim on the package kind of wrong. I used a table saw and a sander to install the tiles.

This is a good price for a solid product. They are thinner than other tiles available (at 1/8" thick...which is NOT specified in the product description), but will perform just fine if adhered to a solid substrate. Word to the wise: do NOT try to adhere these or any cork tile with the included tape pads. Instead, use a suitable adhesive. I personally use flammable contact cement to adhere them to plywood or particle board, but I would imagine that a decent wood glue would work fine also if it's spread evenly.

I bought these a few months ago and had the same problem as everyone else who has posted. When I saw they were on sale at Staples for $2 a pack I decided to try again with a little more ingenuity involved. To make these work you need:

1. 2 packs of the 4-set of cork board (this solves the fact that the cork is too thin to stick tacks into)
2. Super glue
3. Removeable adhesive pads (DO NOT use the ones provided in the pack, find ones that are actually designed to come off your wall without ruining it) I used these: Scotch(R) Removable Mounting Squares , 1 x 1 Inches, 16 squares ,Grey(108)

Instructions:

1. Gently clean the cork board with a damp cloth to get rid of any residue or dust. Be careful or it might flake off.
2. Once dry, super glue one cork board piece to the back of another and repeat until you end up with 4 thick cork board pieces that you can actually stick thumb tacks into.
3. Wait for the super glue to set and then use the removeable adhesive pads you bought to stick the cork board to the wall. I used 4 pads on every board just to be sure.

It's been two weeks and there's no sign of them falling off like the did the last time and I can actually stick stuff into them! On top of that, I paid basically the same amount for all of the above that I would have paid buying just one pack of this stuff from amazon. Took one star off because the product had to be altered and did not come ready to use.

65 of 74 people found the following review helpful By Tidewater on November 3, 2009
Style Name: 12 x 12/ NaturalSize Name: 4 Pack
Each corkboard comes with four pieces of double-sided adhesive tape. I mounted each piece of cork to a large piece of foam board that I purchased separately, using the adhesive tape included with the corkboard.

The tape sticks to the form board great -- in fact, I can't get it off! But the tape doesn't support the corkboard at all. I came back the next morning, and all four pieces of cork had fallen to the floor.

Worse, the cork is so crumbly that now I can't even superglue it to the foam board, because it's broken into little pieces.

My guess is that you would have the same experience whether you used foam backing, as I did, or made the mistake of trying to stick this cork directly to your wall. The adhesive tape just doesn't support the cork.

I wish I had saved the time and frustration and used a (thinner) cork ROLE instead... My entire project is ruined because the adhesive tape that comes with this product isn't up to the job, causing the cork to crumble. Now I can't even get the tape off the foam board to start again.

(If you purchase the product, I would suggest using superglue rather than the adhesive tape that's included.)

The cork tiles are fine, I wouldn't have dreamed of using the double stick foam pads that come with it. I'm using a spray adhesive and mounting directly on a wall, no issues.
