Tackboards / Magnetic
Can you make non-standard sizes?
Yes, up to 4' x 8'. Call for a quote. Shipping very large sizes may be a concern.

What fabrics can I use?
Almost any except very sheer or thin fabrics. Could run or show through.

Can you make 3 piece segmented designs without the magnetic strips?
Yes, Velcro, repositionable or permanent tape, or plain.

Could the 3 pc. designs be used on a wall?
Yes, recommend repositionable tape.

Are they available for 2 or 3 high files?
No, not enough area for 3 pc. design. Recommend single tackboard.

Are there other designs available?
No. However, if volume is 50 or more, we could make a custom design.

What is the construction of magnetic tackboards?
1/2" compressed fiberboard with fabric glued to face and pulled to back to create self edge.

When I measure the height of my file - do I give the full height?
Yes, we will subtract 1-1/2" for toe kick and to avoid carpet interference.

Which fabric is #1 and which is #2?
#1 covers the single tackboard piece and #2 covers the two tackboard pieces. This is correct on the order form and on website but incorrect in the binder ordering guidelines.

Do I need to specify when I'm covering sides and back of the same file?
Yes, we will increase the size of the back tackboard to overlap the sides.

Can a directional fabric be turned (railroaded) from the direction shown in the ordering guidelines?
Yes, however, there may be an added cost if fabric yield is reduced.

Any lower prices for large quantities.?
