Notice Boards and Pin Boards
Notice boards and pin boards are used in many situations around the workplace and at home. Also often referred to as bulletin boards they are used for displaying notices, for advertising items, for announcing events for showing pictures and pinning up important reminders or To-Do lists. Corkboards are perhaps the best known and have been around for the longest period of time, however we also supply a great range of both felt boards and foam notice boards.

Types of Notice and Pin Boards
Cork Boards - Are familiar to most people and are widely used in workplaces and homes to pin notices, reminders and pictures too. Cork boards are relatively cheap as they cost less to produce than other notice boards and come with either a pine, plastic or aluminium frame. Combination cork boards are also very popular, where one half of the board is a cork surface and the other half a drywipe surface.
Felt boards - Provide a more professional looking appearance than a cork board and are often used in meeting rooms, training rooms or for general office use. Felt boards can accept any standard pins and Velcro can also be used to attach items to the boards surface.
Foam Notice boards - Manufactured from closely woven diamond mesh fabric that self heals when pins are removed to prevent unsightly pinholes. Felt boards are ideal for executive offices, conference rooms or training rooms.
Notice Board and Pin Board Features
Size - The smallest size boards available are found in the corkboards section and measure just 600m wide by 400mm high, these size boards are perhaps best suited to home use in a bedroom or kitchen. At the other end of the scale the largest boards are 1800mm wide by 1200mm high. These boards are available in felt, foam and cork and are ideal for large spaces and for posting large volumes or material.
Surfaces - Depending on your requirements and budget the first choice to make is the type of surface you require. However, many boards are now available with dual surface making your decision easier. The way the surfaces are presented varies, some boards have a cork surface and dry wipe surface side by side whereas others will have a different surface on each side of the board.
Frames - All entry level, lower priced notice and pin boards will have a basic pine frame. As you move through the pricing brackets more choice becomes available. The most common frame available is aluminium. This is a tough, durable and lightweight material that also has a contemporary feel meaning it will fit the decor of most modern office space. Other options available are light oak or durable plastic, with the later being used to create more colour options.
Colour - Choices or colour are very limited in cork or foam surfaces, however in felt boards the possibility are endless. Felt can be died to any colour so as well as having a wide range to choose from in our standard range we can supply bespoke felt boards manufactured to specific colour requests.
