I carefully installed the cork tiles on a clean wall in my office. They looked really nice, however, several people said they would not stay on the wall very long and they were right. The next morning several had fallen on the floor and some had broken. Very disappointing product.
Wonderful product, easy to hang-still hanging after one month. Only drawback is that it's thin and a regular push pin does not go all the way in.
Keeping in mind that these cork squares are inexpensive, they are not going to be superior quality (obviously).
I purchased these as a cheaper option to display my kids' artwork. The sticky tape it comes with does not hold very well, but if you add more of your own, it will hold okay.
You cannot put anything with much weight on them or they will rip (like a heavily decorated piece of art...i.e. my kids decorated a letter "B" with beans and it did not hold). Two of mine ripped at the corners. I was able to piece them back together though.
Overall, I actually think they work fine for the value. If you want something heavy duty or more durable, buy one of the more expensive boards.
The product does exactly what we wanted it to. The only thing I would improve on is the quality of the double sided tape used. For walls, the tape included did NOT hold for anything. I eventually got spray adhesive to put it BACK up after it fell.
I would like to firmly reiterate what others have said: despite following the directions, thoroughly cleaning both surfaces - these squares start falling off the wall within a few hours. I've tried repeatedly to re-stick them, but they continue to fall, breaking corners and additional pieces every time. A complete waste of my money and time!
bought these for my husbands office, thought they looked very cool once up but the backing they give you doesn't stick for anymore than 5 minutes. not to mention because the backing didnt hold them up (THERE WAS NOTHING HUNG ON THEM, SO THERE WAS NOT ANY WEIGHT ADDED) when they fell to the floor they all broke. very disappointed and completely ridiculous.
While I am sure it is due to the fact that my walls are textured and have a gloss finish, I found the supplied adhesive strips inadequate. So be sure to order double sided tape with it or as I was forced to do find decorative nails to secure the corners to keep it from falling off the walls.
I have purchased "cork" from Walmart before and was very pleased with the product, these, however, were not the same quality. These cork tiles crumble very easily.
I wanted an inexpensive cork board in my home office and didn't want to spend what they want for the framed ones. Also unable to find the su=ize I wanted. This was a great solution. I just wish Walmart would stop being so wasteful with their packing to ship. Came in a giant box.
just received yesterday but they are fine just not as thick as i would have liked but will do. thank you
Too thin for push pins and the double sided tape that comes with does not hold, three have already fallen off my wall. Gonna super glue them and maybe double them as well.
Within 2 days, the boards fell off the wall, along with everything on them, hit the floor, and broke. I had arranged them on the wall to hang my preschool daughter's artwork - it was nothing heavy, just a few pieces of paper she had finger-painted. The white, double-sided taped tabs provided obviously won't hold them to the wall.
The tape didn't stick, the cork board was thin and flimsy. It broke and shredded when it fell (because of the tape) the first day I put it up. It went right to the trash. Waste of money.:(
It's been two months and mine haven't budged. When I was shopping around I only wanted two squares so I all the tape to hold up half the cork board and I haven't had any problems. I did notice that pins were hitting the drywall so my solution was to take my extra two squares and spray adhesive them over the ones I had on the wall. Now they are the perfect thickness. I'm glad I only needed two!
I've had these hanging up in my sons room for about a week now and so far they have been holding up perfectly fine. I have even taken them off and reapplied using the same adhesive and it has not fallen down. Thumbtacks do not go all they way into the boards but it works well for us. I hang my toddlers art on it.
Perfect for project. Needed a base under a ceramic square to be used as a hot pad. Cut easily. Glued well!
Perfect size. Perfect shape. Happy customer.
These are both decorative and can be used to post notes. I've used the application in my office on the wall in back of a long desk workspace. Would suggest not to bother with the stick on squares that come with the product as they do not hold the tile. Instead, purchase some tiny nails with a flat head to secure on each corner of the tiles. Works great! Also, keep in mind they are not thick, may need to put your tacks on a slight angle to post items. Other than that, love the product!
I was pleasantly surprised when I found sticky pads to attach the wall, but a couple are just really bad at staying stuck to the cork. The squares are also thinner than you would think
I gave this a three bc I'm comparing the cost to product. The boards were cheap but they are very thin. Too thin to put thumb tacks into them without pressing the tack into the wall. If you put a piece of cardboard behind the cork that may help, I'm going to try it.
