Quartet® Cork Bulletin Board(9 Products)
For many of us, cork boards represent everything that was fun in school: news and announcements of all sorts, birthdays and holidays, events like concerts, dances and proms, grades and exam results… Well, maybe not! But hey, they were everywhere, and now that you’re in the workplace, it's hard to picture not having them around, right?Read more
As straightforward as it gets!
Bulletin boards have been a constant for many of us over the years—from the nursery to school to the workplace. But why are they so ubiquitous? Well, it's probably because they provide such a simple and efficient way to broadcast the news that matters: announcements of all kinds, from birthdays and holidays, to accomplishments, people coming and going, events like football and basketball games, end-of-year social events. Of course, you may also have to announce less exciting things—like the underground parking being closed for a week—but there's not much we can do about that!
Even in this era of digital communication and high-tech workplaces, the cork board remains an effective tool to disseminate information. It's nice to see that such a traditional solution has retained its relevance, providing a reassuringly tactile communication medium—even though its primary purpose is to allow people to connect without crossing one another's paths.
So many different kinds
Cork is a natural product with exceptional qualities. Natural cork surfaces actually self-heal, which makes them tremendously durable: a welcome feature in heavily used areas such as lunch rooms, corridors, and lounges. Combine that with Quartet's tough frames and heavy-duty mounting systems, and you have a product that will keep its integrity throughout its life.
Of course, cork bulletin boards are also a budget-friendly communication solution. That takes the pressure off choosing which board to buy—and where to place it—because it's easy to build up a varied collection to suit the entire workspace. Sizes start 11" x 17" and go all the way up to 72" x 48", which means there's a product (and a price point!) for every situation.
The classic Quarter model is rectangular and has an oak finish frame, while the Home Décor collection features a classy ebony finish frame that will fit well in almost any setting. An original choice would be the Contour Faux Granite cork bulletin board with black plastic frame: the surprise here is that the cork is actually colored, giving you more aesthetic options to choose from. Note that you can also get cork boards with aluminum frames, if you wish, and that some of the more sophisticated models are encased in a lockable cabinet that lets you keep control over what is being posted.
Create your own
Did you know that you can actually get modular cork tiles to create a customized a bulletin board surface as small or as big as you want? Quartet's frameless cork panels—you can get them in natural or dark color—measure 1' x 1' and can be placed on walls anywhere. These cork tiles are not only highly convenient and customizable: they also help to absorb noise in loud areas, helping to create a much quieter (and calmer!) working environment. Perfect for those spaces where people are regularly on calls, collaborating at their desks, or simply socializing during the work day.
Other ways to spread the word
Cork boards are part of a larger family of low-tech-yet-effective communication tools. That family also includes whiteboards, chalk boards and easels, all of which provide practical presentation solutions in a range of environments.
