I'm a homeschool mom and wanted cork for custom sized bulletin boards for my kids. I searched around and due to affordability I went with this product. I was able to make 4 'art boards,' as we call them, by doing three layers to be able to take the depth of a thumb tack. The kids LOVE them! As a bonus I have enough left over to line my kitchen shelves. As for shipping, we're currently in the middle of the pandemic, so you can imagine how stunned I was when it arrived only 2 days after I ordered it. Amazing!
