Cork tiles offer virtually unlimited versatility. Modular functionality allows each " x " cork tile to be used alone, or placed alongside other tiles to maximize the tackable surface. The frameless design of the tiles allows them to hang seamlessly next to each other, or you can leave space in between for a more creative, and stylish look. Like with any standard bulletin board, items can be quickly and easily tacked up on durable cork surface using push pins. The cork is all natural and has a self-healing feature so that unsightly pin holes will not be left behind when you take down your display items. At 1/4" thick, the cork also has the ability to absorb noise which is an added plus in busy households and work environments. Mount cork tiles to any wall, in any configuration, with the included self-stick adhesive tape and you've got a custom cork board. Cork is designed for light use and is suitable for work, home or school display purposes or for use in arts and crafts projects. 100% Satisfaction Guaranteed. Frameless, modular cork tiles are popular because of their varied functionality. The tiles can be used alone or as a group to create a fully tackable cork bulletin board that matches your style and meets your needs. Cork tiles are sold in packs of 8.

These cork tiles are thinner than 1/4" each--it is somewhere between 1/8" and 1/4" per tile, as shown in the picture. When you stack up all 8 tiles together, you see that it is clearly about half an inch thinner than 2"--that makes a huge difference when it comes to cork board. They are not as sturdy as I had hoped, though it would take a little bit more pressure to rip than some other cork boards I've used before (like Board Dudes 2' x 4' Hobby Cork Roll (DDT60), but I knew these would be thin and needed something very large for a project so I bought 3 and layered those together).
I needed something thicker for an art project and was sorely disappointed by how much thinner than 1/4" these tiles were. If you are looking for cork tiles that don't need to be so sturdy, these would be fine to hot glue together for something more durable. However, as they stand, they don't seem durable enough by themselves to hold up.
These are not your moms old cork tiles that were about three times thicker and had the entire back of each tile covered in adhesive after pulling off the protective sheet.
In summary, they are cheap looking, very thin, not nearly enough adhesive included with product (could use your own but for what they charge they should included more) and the adhesive they do include does not do a good job of sticking to a painted wall. I had several come loose in after only 24 hours.
I ended up tearing down the entire wall and putting up reclaimed wood planks - looks much better and took about the same amount of time as it did installing these cheap, poor quality tiles.
Another 'con' is that push pins go right through them- they're a fraction of an inch too shallow and so any push pins I push through will go into the wall behind it if I'm not careful.
But I do like them! They're a board that is cork so I got what I expected!
