Where to buy cork board or white board for hanging on wall?

Postby slmkhoo » Mon Aug 19, 2013 8:22 am

I am looking for a cork board or white board to hang on my kids' bedroom wall. The ones I've seen at Popular don't come with provision for hanging and are supposed to be stuck on the wall with double-sided tape, which I don't like. Anyone know where I can get something that can be hung from wall hooks? Thanks!

slmkhoo,
By white board, do you mean the ones we can write on?
What size are you looking at?

Popular/other stationary shops at bras basah.
The very big ones ( like 3ft x 4ft) have a wooden plank support making it very heavy ( like ones in school)
The 2ft x 2.5 feet ones are much lighter and can be hung easily.

How big do you want them to be? Ikea and Popular are your best choices. If you're looking for a small one, Daiso has too.

Just bought 2 58x39cm cork boards from Ikea which have string behind for hanging. Waiting for my daughter to get back from school so we can decide exactly where to hang them. Ikea doesn't sell white boards, in case anyone want to know. The ones at Popular are all to be mounted on walls by double-sided tape (at least at the branches I checked out) and I didn't want that. Thanks for all the responses!

You mean we can hang them like how we hang paintings at home :?
Do all the populars sell the white boards? Any delivery?

Some have wooden backs and can be quite heavy, especially the larger ones, so you would need to drill screws to carry the weight. The ones I have seen at Popular are smaller (under 50 cm) and with board backs so are light. They come with double-sided tape for mounting on the wall, but I'm concerned that they may take paint off if you decided to remove the board. The Ikea cork boards are also light and can be hung from a picture hook. But because my kids are going to be using them, we will probably use 2 hooks for added strength, and I plan to use Blu-Tac at the corners to prevent them moving.

We use 3m double sided tape. Those that come with the hook. No need to drill and paint will not peel off when remove. Have to estimate the weight and use the size and number of hook to be use

I bought at Popular. One is normal white board and another is calendar type for her to write down daily activities.
