Post-It Self-Stick Bulletin Board - Great Idea...But Depends...

Pros:Works really well...

Cons:As long as you can keep dust and dirt away from it...

The Bottom Line: A great alternative to regular cork bulletin boards BUT its longevity greatly depends on how it's used and where it's used.


Many of my folks sit in the same aisle as I do and one of the things that I wanted to do this year was to jazz up the hallway area.

People normally take posters and flyers on the outside of our cube walls and those are adhered to the cube walls by stick pins. While those work okay, I don't like to damage the actual document nor do I appreciate having little holes in the cube walls. I'm not anal about this - it just irritates me a teeny bit.

As I was thinking about how to jazz up the area without having to rely on the traditional means to do so (and of course - knowing that I needed to keep within the "bounds" of what was acceptable to our facilities crew), I stumbled upon something that I had no clue existed! That product was a Post-it Self-Stick Bulletin Board (unframed).

Gasp Could it be? 3M took the essence of the sticky note and made it into a bulletin board?! Wow! I was so there.

When I placed my order, I had several choices to make. What colors? What size? With a frame? Without a frame?

Because I like lots of flexibility in my life, I decided to go with the middle-sized (18 x 23), no framed-bulletin boards, and of course - I had to order all three available colors (beige, burgundy, and charcoal).

I'm not sure what I was expecting however, when my order arrived, I was a little surprised by the lightness of the bulletin board. The paper stock that the board is made out of - I can only describe it as thin, but stiff and rigid enough so that it doesn't bend when the wind blows by you :).

It was wrapped with plastic (like cellophane) and at first, I didn't even notice that a thin film of plastic covered the front of the bulletin board. Ah! That is where the sticky part of it is.

The bulletin board comes with Velcro adhesive mounting tape (which do actually come in handy) and because of the lack of stiffness of the board, you can cut it down to a size that better fits your needs (assuming the current size does not).

For me, I just ended up mounting it - as is. It adhered very easily to the fabric cube walls and when I peeled off the thin, plastic film, I found the front of the board to be very 3M sticky note-like.

And how did these work out for me?

This is the part where I tell you - mileage varies. I learned the hard way that depending on where I located the bulletin board AND depending on what I did/did not place on it - that had a direct correlation to my satisfaction with the product.

For example, if the bulletin board was mostly covered with items, I found that they stuck well, were easy to remove and reapply, and overall, met my needs.

If the bulletin board was not mostly covered then I found that the exposed/non-covered areas attracted dust. The more dust it attracted, the less sticky it became. When I wanted to put something new on the board - in an area that wasn't previously used, the item may or may not stay in place, depending on - well - just plain ole randomness.

The moral of the story? I made sure when I purchased replacements that I utilized the space efficiently, avoiding the collection of dust bunnies.

Ten months later, they are still functioning well.
