Cornhole is one of the most popular outdoor party games of all time. From the lawns of fraternity houses to the backyards of family cookouts, millions of people have participated in this classic game of bean bag toss. Despite many knowing of the game, most people don’t know of its origins.

History of Cornhole

Despite cornhole having a very clear and concise set of rules, its true birthplace is highly contested.

Some believe that the game originated in Germany in the 1300s when cabinet maker Matthias Kuepermann was watching children throw stones into a hole they had dug out. Kuepermann then proceeded to build a box made out of leftover cabinet materials. Aside from creating the box, he also filled small bags with grain for tossing. One of the other most widely accepted origin theories is that Jebediah McGillicuddy, a farmer from Kentucky, came up with the game as a fun way to pass time with family and friends. The game wouldn’t become widely popular until the 1980s, where a large player base grew in the west side of Cincinnati, Ohio. Although the initial origins of cornhole are blurred, its impact on outdoor games is massive. Now that you know the history of cornhole, let’s look into the process of how we wrap our boards with custom vinyl designs.

How To Wrap Cornhole Boards With Vinyl

When it comes to the process of wrapping cornhole boards, the vinyl wrap acts similar to an adhesive band aid- the outer layer must be separated to allow the adhesive layer to bind to the board. The first step in the vinyl application process involves removing a small center strip of the outer vinyl layer so that the adhesive layer is anchored to the center of the board. The rest of the vinyl is then smoothed over side by side. This is done using a large squeegee, which unravels the outer layer from the adhesive one (just like when applying an adhesive bandage). The squeegee not only helps keep the vinyl flat, but it prevents air bubbles from forming. This process is done for both sides of the vinyl. Once the design has been applied to the board, a knife is used to remove the vinyl that is covering the score hole. Additionally, any excess vinyl surrounding the board is trimmed off. Aside from being aware of how the boards are wrapped, the various board sizes and pricing are also important factors to consider.

Board Sizes, Dimensions, and Pricing

What’s so great about our cornhole boards? Besides our custom board designs, our boards are handmade by a local professional woodworker. Utilizing only the finest genuine wood, our cornhole boards are a cut above cheaply constructed fiberglass and particleboard boards.

We offer three different sized cornhole boards. Each size fits a certain space requirement and social situation. The price for each set of boards includes the design fee, bean bags, and the material required to construct the boards. Our smallest size is the “indoor” board, which is priced at $200. The “indoor” board’s dimensions are 1 foot by 1.5 feet. The next size up is our “tailgate” board, which is $225. The dimensions of the “tailgate” board are 2 feet by 3 feet. The final size board we offer is a “tournament” board, which costs $250. The “tournament” board measures in at 2 feet by 4 feet. Now that you have taken sizing, dimensions, and pricing into account, it is important to consider how to take care of your cornhole board and bags. With use must also come proper handling, so we will talk about proper care and storage next.

How To Care For Your Cornhole Equipment

When it comes to maintaining your boards, there are a few things to consider. First off, never store your boards face to face, as the wrapping can be torn if they scrape against each other. Boards should be stored with their backs together and covered with a tarp or cloth cover. Another important thing to take into consideration is the environment in which you store your cornhole boards. As the boards are made of wood, they should be placed in a dry place to prevent warping and moisture damage. This is also applicable to the bean bags, as improper storage can lead to mold forming. Bags should be stored in a secure place where they are not at risk of  being lost or even worse, being torn open by an animal or a lawn mower.
