This product got a lot of undeserved negative flack by people who didn't understand how to properly mount it. This is raw cork and it's better suited towards people who have a knack for thinking outside the box, and want to make their own custom board. I will admit, this product is marketed wrong. It's NOT a finished product you can't just hang up. It requires a little prep work, and trust me, it's easy…

Here's what you need to do... Cork is naturally dusty and crumbly, so you need to make a backing for it using glue that will soak into the cork a little. All finished/framed cork boards have backings… The backing aids in supporting the board and helps keep the cork from falling apart. (Note: If you need to cut it to size, do this first.) I simply glued plain 8.5X11 copy paper to one side of each tile. This can be done with just about any type of glue, wood glue being the best choice. Running a bead will work, but spreading it out thin over a large area is better. After it dries, you're ready to hang it. The included adhesive pads will stick to plain copy paper very well if you want to use them.

So why should you buy this over a finished/framed board? Well for me, this board is superior because it's thicker than most finished boards and thumb tacks can be inserted easier. I also like the look of the big chunks of cork and its dark color. Papers and other items contrast well with it. And being unfinished, it allows me a lot of flexibility for customizing. I'll be buying another pack soon.

I have a small home office shared with a guest room. I thought the look of the 4 cubes would look less like a dorm room than a large framed cork board. I bought them on a whim even though they seemed more expensive than they should have been. And it turned out they are terrible!

The adhesive pads do not stick to the cork boards. The small cork bits stick to it, and then the board itself falls off the wall. Once it falls off, that's the end of the stickiness on that side of the adhesive pads.

The adhesive pads do, however, remain firmly intact to the wall. So much so that they are nearly impossible to remove in one piece. They have taken off paint and have left chunks of foam and glue on the wall. VERY ANNOYING.

Now I have no cork boards, and my wall looks horrible like a dorm room with these stickers left on it. Totally not worth it. Do not buy these.

  • Difficult To Mount

    Comments about Quartet® 1' x 1' Frameless Cork Panels:

    VERY messy! It sheds little pieces all over the place, and the mounting pieces don't stick to the cork. The backing is also really hard to get off. I'll be replacing these!

      Comments about Quartet® 1' x 1' Frameless Cork Panels:

      I liked the fact that I could make my own cork board to the size I needed. Product smells like smoke (strong) and the tack strips included are hard to get a part.

      Pros

      • Easy To Mount

      Cons

      • Difficult To Clean
      • Shed Easily
      • Smell Like Campfire

      Best Uses

      • Maybe A Workshop

      Comments about Quartet® 1' x 1' Frameless Cork Panels:

      Like I said above they smell like a campfire. It doesn't bother me as much but the girls in the office hate the smell. I'll probably have to take them down and replace them with something else. Also they shed so there are little pieces of cork on the floor below where they are hung.

      Don't Buy It!

        Best Uses

          Comments about Quartet® 1' x 1' Frameless Cork Panels:

          The mounting tabs included with this product are all defective. The paper will NOT peel off the sticky tabs. I had to buy 3M mounting tabs to make this product work. Once on the wall I discovered that the cork is not thick enough to use push pins to hold even a single sheet of paper. Think twice before purchasing.
