Aren’t cork boards amazing? The incredibly versatile material is just a simple object that lets you keep things organized, display notes and reminders, all of which happen without damaging a wall by poking hundreds of holes in it. Since they were popularized in the early 1900s, cork boards have been used in businesses, home offices, and children’s bedrooms, and as a result, have become staples of the modern home and office space.
However, here at Felt Right, we feel the time has come to upgrade and improve your corkboard like all the other tools around you have been upgraded. Just like no one is still using a computer from the 1990s, there is no reason to still be using that old, unattractive, corkboard when there is a much better alternative.
Felt Right tiles are perfect replacements for your run-of-the-mill cork board – which can be picked apart by uncaring hands or fall to pieces over time. The durable yet cushioned material is perfect for any pushpin, tac, or staple without having to worry about damaging the board over time. They are also echo-dampening, helping minimize sound which frequently reverberates off bare walls.
But it's more than just a thin layer of cork mounted on a wooden board. It’s a piece of art for your wall. You can design a wide variety of colors and shapes, and it can be scaled to fit any space. You don’t have to compromise by getting a size that’s either too big or too small. Felt Right allows you to build the size and shape you want so you can have a cork pinboard tailored to your space. You can customize your felt tiles with our layout studio, making your cork board more than just a tool, but an engaging background for your workspace. Bulletin boards can be revolutionized, entryways can be given texture and life, and walls can be decorated, all by customizable felt tiles
PET felt is made from spun plastic fiber that is pressed and sewn together to create a lightweight, durable material that can be machined into a variety of shapes. It’s the same plastic material used to make water and soda bottles. Our PET felt tiles are incredibly durable and easy to clean and maintain, while looking and feeling warm like wool.
Each Felt Right tile contains the equivalent of at least four recycled water bottles to create a product that is at least 50 percent recycled content and helps keep single-use plastic out of the waste stream. Sustainability is a core value and we work towards continually reducing the impact of our operations. When we say more than just a felt board, we mean it---we design long-lasting felt tiles that will brighten up your surroundings.

The customization ability lets you design what you want in the color you want.
Don’t settle for less than the perfect fit for your office. Instead of compromising and getting a corkboard that isn’t the right size, color, or shape, customize your own and make it as much a part of you as the rest of your office equipment.

How do I uninstall tiles without damaging paint?
There are 2 important steps to uninstalling felt Right tiles without damaging paint:
Step 1: Carefully separate each tile from the adhesive tabs. Tiles are removed, leaving the tabs on the wall surface. This is done by inserting fingers between the tile and the wall, away from the tab location and gradually applying pressure until the tile separates from tabs. Avoid pulling the tile directly away from the wall in an abrupt or forceful manner as the tile needs time to release from the tabs.
Step 2: Roll the tabs off the wall. Once the tile has been removed from the wall, leaving the tabs, then remove each tab from the wall. This is done by starting at a corner of the tab, applying pressure and rolling the tab off of the wall with your finger or thumb. Avoid pulling the tab directly away from the wall.
If you have difficulty getting the tab to begin rolling, you can use a block pencil eraser to start the process.
