Hertz Furniture has a wide selection of bulletin boards in a variety of sizes and surface materials. They are meant to withstand daily use with no deterioration for many years. Whether you want to display the lunch menu, announcements, sign-up sheets, official forms or just about anything else, cork boards offer an excellent space.
Why are bulletin boards often made out of cork?
The classic bulletin board design has a cork surface with a metal or wood frame. Cork is the ideal surface material because pins can be easily pushed into it. It also possesses a “self-healing” quality, closing up holes automatically when tacks are removed. This is what keeps a cork board looking and functioning like new for many years.
How can I make my bulletin board look nicer?
While the typical cork tackboard surface is great, you might want something that looks a bit more refined and professional. One solution is to cover your bulletin boards with colored poster paper. This is an option that is often used to enhance classroom colors and decor because poster paper can easily be replaced when it's time for a new theme or season. Although paper is helpful, it cannot be used for a long time because it may rip and holes will remain after pins are removed. For this reason, it might not be the best option for a professional environment.
If you want a more sleek appearance without having to constantly replace a paper covering, vinyl-covered bulletin boards are a great option. Vinyl is stain-resistant and waterproof and can be washed off with the use of a mild detergent. Vinyl is available in a number of colors and will maintain its original appearance for many years.
Another colorful option is the fabric cork board from Interior Innovations. This brightly-colored board comes in a huge selection of vibrant fabric and frame colors. It is designed to be used with regular tacks and pins and has the same “self-healing” advantage as cork. A colorful tack board will draw attention to whatever is displayed on it and can help brighten up classrooms and hallways.
How can I make my bulletin board safe?
Worried about pins and tacks falling on the floor and causing potential danger? You can have the same great hanging space without needing pins with the self-adhesive corkboard from United Visual. Papers will simply stick to the fabric surface without any pins, staples or tacks. Rather than having to rummage around for something to hang up announcements with, you can simply bring papers straight from the printer and stick them onto the classroom bulletin board.
What kind of tack board should I get for the conference room?
Bulletin boards can be quite useful in professional settings. Our sleek conference cabinets from OSC have attractive wood veneer exteriors which open up to cork boards and a white board inside. This is a great arrangement for a conference room or meeting space. You might also want to consider a conference cabinet for executive offices.
If you need both a pinboard and a whiteboard, but aren't sure which one should get more prominent placement, you don't have to choose. Ghent has both in one convenient model. With a tack board outside and whiteboard inside you can hang important announcements in a highly-visual space without taking up room on your whiteboard. With this arrangement you get the best of both worlds as your bulletin board and marker board share prime placement.
Of course, there are always the classic school bulletin boards. Tack board placement should definitely be a consideration when making decisions about hallway and classroom layout. Bulletin boards can really brighten up a school, making it a positive and inviting atmosphere. With all of the time and effort that teachers put into making sure that their classrooms are decorated properly, it is fitting that the bulletin boards get prime placement.
Hertz Furniture's wide selection of bulletin boards has many options that will be great for your school or office. Cork boards will always come in handy whether in the hallway, classroom, cafeteria or staff lounge.

Not every room has the same style or acoustics, so it is important to choose a podium that meets a space's practical and aesthetic requirements. We have wooden models with built-in sound systems as well as sleek acrylic ones. Hertz Furniture's full selection enables you to consider all of the options and ultimately choose the one which fulfills your needs.
It can be hard to make the right choice when buying a church lectern or podium. Although practical concerns such as the size of the sanctuary and the nature of events it will house are important, stylistic concerns must be taken into account as well. The ideal model will help the congregation focus on the person behind the podium. It is important that this piece of furniture not become a distraction or detract from the harmony of a spiritual setting.
The right church pulpit ultimately depends on the size and style of the room it inhabits. If you have a classic-style house of worship, a basic wooden lectern will probably fit in well. If you want one that has built-in sound capabilities we have a number of models that seamlessly integrate speakers into the podium structure so they maintain a basic style while serving a functional purpose.
For new-age churches and modern companies such as startups, a wooden model might seem to be a bit behind the times. For a more updated and unique look, acrylic podiums are an excellent option. Their sleek see-through material keeps eyes focused on the lecturer or presenter as the light appearance breaks down the barrier between the speaker and the audience.
When there is no space in the room for a freestanding model, but you still need a surface that is at a comfortable height for reading notes, a portable podium is the way to go. Tabletop lecterns can transform virtually any table-height surface into a speaking space. This arrangement is perfect for a room that is used for a number of different purposes where a podium is required on a regular but not constant basis. Portable models can easily be kept under a table, in a corner or in a storage closet without taking up very much space.
With a large congregation or student body, it is important to make sure that speakers and lecturers are heard loud and clear. With the aid of a microphone, you get great voice amplification without having to strain. We have mics in a variety of styles so you can find the arrangement that is best suited to your purposes and space.
The basic wireless microphone enables you to enjoy the benefits of amplification, even as you move around a stage or a room. While being able to move around is convenient, having to hold something in your hand can become a nuisance, especially when one is speaking for an extended period of time. Headset microphones provide hands-free use so speakers don't have to hold anything as they present. For those who prefer equipment that is more subtle, tie-clip mics can be clipped right onto the lapel where they are hardly noticeable.
In an age where technology is at everyone's fingertips, sometimes plain old speeches just aren't enough to entice a packed house. If you want to keep up with the times and draw a crowd, you need one of our versatile AV carts. With the capability to play digital slideshows from a laptop that is hooked-up to a projector, you will impress everyone as you provide multimedia demonstrations. With an audio visual cart, you can easily bring technology into the classroom, sanctuary or lecture hall.
Hertz Furniture is proud to bring you the Oklahoma Sound Corp's comprehensive collection of lecterns and podiums. These sleek user-friendly models are built to serve your institution through years of speeches, lectures, services and presentations. With the right furniture, you can make any presenter feel like a valued asset to your company, school or house of worship.
