Much like a tweet on twitter, sticky notes allow us to leave short, valuable, timely messages to ourselves. It’s no wonder millions of these little papers are sold every year. Who can resist them: easy to stick, easy to remove papers that keep us on track, mark our place and give us a quick little bit to jot down an address or remind us to take Fido to the vet!
Sticky Notes from d-bros that look good enough to eat!
We love them to:
• create a short shopping list
• write a quick love note
• post up a reminder to ‘Call Mom!’
• tell our kids we love them when they open their lunch box
• remind our man to take out the garbage
From their humble beginnings in the early 70’s at a 3M factory in Kentucky (why didn’t I think of that) to present day, we can now personalize our own or purchase funky and unique shaped notes in a wide variety of styles and colors. Sticky notes are a must have in any office or work bag. There are even cool programs for our computer allowing us to use stickies as reminders on our desktops.
