The Felt Board is being seen everywhere! If you’re on Instagram and a follower of blogs, these are all the rage for adding flair to photographs. When trendy products hit the market, it’s hard to figure out which one is worth purchasing. Reviews of products can be misleading and that’s why I refer to certain bloggers for advice. Recently, I was given the opportunity to try a FELTNOOK Letter Board Set and I can’t wait to share my thoughts on this board with y’all!
An Affordable Letter Board – Made With Love
FELTNOOK is the idea brought to life by husband and wife team, Alison and Rob. They love bringing people together through creative thinking, thoughts, stories, and words – and what better way to do that than with high-quality felt boards?! This small, family-owned company truly understands that communication is key for relationships and how inspiring a few words can be. Not only did they create a communication tool; but, they also made it affordable and durable.
Currently, the boards come in a 10″ x 10″ and 10″ x 3.5″ gray/black combination. You can choose for the bigger board to be black and smaller to be gray, if you prefer. The frames are made of a sturdy oak and the felt is soft, vibrant, and made to last without fading or pilling. A large assortment of letters, numbers, and emojis are included for creating an endless amount of messages. They are a little difficult to initially remove; however, once you have them broken apart, all of the pieces store in an included drawstring bag.
In the near future, the company will offer an organization box to enable you to organize the letters, numbers, and emojis to speed up your creative process. They offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee, available for 30 days and backed by a 1-year manufacturer replacement warranty; however, I don’t see anyone being disappointed with this set.
A Pledge to Children’s Literacy
In addition to being fun accessories for bloggers, photographers, and general everyday use, the felt letter boards can be used for literacy education. They help children learn the alphabet, choose words, expand their imagination, and create. FELTNOOK pledges 1% of their profits and products to support children’s literacy programs. They also donate boards to classrooms nationwide.
Nearly 32 million in the United States cannot read as of 2013 and only ⅓ of 4th graders are literacy proficient. Sadly, 25% of Canadian households don’t own a book because they aren’t affordable. It breaks my heart to know that so many in the world can’t understand the places that reading can take you. Reading is life!
