Please help me identify this tile


Hi all, I hate dropping in to ask for help but I'm pretty desperate.

I need to identify the vinyl tiles in the pictures. I am sure they have been discontinued but if anybody knows any information about them I would be sincerely grateful.

I have attached a picture of the tile (which is 12 in. x 12 in.) as well as a picture of the back of one which may help with identifying the manufacturor.

I know some have identfying markers on the back, but seeing as these are 15-20 years old it no longer exists on any of them I've taken up. I've looked at every resource I know of on the net (which isnt a lot) and havent turned up anything.

So if anyone can help me identify these tiles I will be sincerely thankful. Or if anyone has any tips on what I should do or where to look or where else to post I would sincerely grateful. THANK YOU

Don't remember the brand, but you are right, they are old. You won't find any. Probably Armstrong. They look like mid 80's peel and stick.

They also look like peel and stick tiles, my first clue was all the seams that have opened up.
Peel in stick is the last thing I'd ever suggest anyone using on a floor.

Thanks big Joe, I know realize they're old and cheap but I'm moving and need to replace some broken tiles and really can't justify buying new flooring right now. Thanks you for the help
