We are a mom and pop store that started over 10 years ago selling at trade shows. We found that people liked our creative solution to organization and we have continued to grow every year. Our main business is now an on-line store that has been operating for 8 years. In October 2015 we updated the store with a robust and attractive new website and over 1,000 new products. We hope you like our new look!
Each hand-crafted decorative cork board is one inch thick and consists of three layers. We start with a quarter inch of high-quality cork from Portugal. Next, we add a layer of lightweight dense fiber to give extra support to the cork. Finally, we add a layer of plywood backing. After gluing, cutting and sawing, the board goes to the fabric room. Here the unique fabric, picked out by the customer, is professionally attached. If ribbons are ordered they are added here as well. We finish the product with a felt backing and attach heavy D-rings for easy hanging.
Our push pins are hand-made in the workroom. We offer over 1,000 push pins and are constantly updating our stock. In the workroom, we use a regular wooden, plastic or metal push pin and attach the decoration to the head of the push pin with an industrial adhesive that cures for 2 days. The pin shaft is 3/8″ and the head is approximately 1/4″. The longer shaft allows us to offer many different kinds of mediums and materials that “pop out” and are easier to insert and remove. The uniqueness of our selections can add interest and personality to your bulletin board or project.
We have worked with well over 1,000 clients ranging from large corporations, such as Starbucks, to the individual customer shopping for a board that is room specific. Some clients we see regularly are interior designers, universities, law offices, and doctors’ offices. We can accommodate large orders and our turn around time is usually within 5 days.
