This is my third magnetic message board from Ballard, my first in the horizontal size. I ordered the document brown to go above my laptop/desk area for quick and easy organization. It suits that purpose beautifully – – a highly functional and stylish way to unclutter the desk and keep things in sight and within reach. The only negative comment I have with this message board is that the magnets are really tiny. I would have much preferred the larger magnets that came with the large vertical message boards I ordered previously from the same manufacturer. An upgrade in the magnet size would have made this a 5-star product. I’ve attached a picture of the difference in the magnet size between the large vertical board and the horizontal board (by the same manufacturer) so future customers can see for themselves.

NOTE: I initally ordered the horizontal board in rattan and it arrived damaged. The straw was broken/torn in two spots and it’s such a thin covering of rattan, I did not want to re-order this material as a replacement. I went with the document brown fabric I reviewed above, which is better quality, in my opinion.
