- Amazon Prime rocks; it's fast AND easy to return IF damaged. I've read so many other reviews of the larger sheets of cork board (and bulletin boards) coming in damaged and the manufacturer was a pain to deal with. Plus without Prime, a large 8x4' sheet would have taken the manufacturer till September 4th (over a week).
- These being smaller and easier to pack, are less likely to be damaged. And I was right--they came in pristine condition!
Now the second question everyone wondered was, are the sheets 1/4
The adhesive squares just don't hold the tiles, and when they fall, they are brittle so the corners break off, making a mess and making the squares more shabby looking. I ended up gluing them to a board and hanging it on the wall from a nail so that these awful tiles can at least get me through my exam. I may as well have just bought a regular corkboard for all the trouble these gave me.
They are NOT worth the money or trouble.
The problem, though, as seen in the photo, I can count. 8-pack does not NORMALLY mean 7 tiles!
These cork tiles, I thought would be perfect for my office, however, there are two issues that I have experienced.
1. The cork tiles are not thick enough. A normal thumbtack (I tried two different kinds) is too long and pushes all the way through the cork and potentially into my wall. My workaround is to simply not push it that deep into the cork; not the end of the world, but certainly not ideal.
2. Most importantly, the adhesives that come with the package do not seem very strong. Of the eight tiles I have, in the month since I put them up, one has fallen off the wall and one is slowly sliding down the wall. This is a pretty significant issue for me. And I'm not putting excessive weight on these.
It's likely that I will keep using these as long as I can, perhaps building a wooden frame for them and attaching that to the wall to alleviate the falling issue.
I also purchased the Command Medium Mounting Refill Strips here. They are a great price as an add-on item. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0014CQGW4?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00
