I’m always writing little notes. Notes with little reminders, favorite quotes, and even little love notes to my husband and my kids. I’ve been writing little notes – to myself, to my family, to friends and co-workers – for as long as I can remember. And so many of those notes have been on Post-it® Notes! I usually keep a few Post-it® Note pads scattered around my office, and I love the bright pop of color on my desk. Post-it® Brand products have been a huge part of my life – from student to creative entrepreneur – and I’m thrilled to help them celebrate 35 years of helping great ideas take shape!
Believe it or not, Post-it® Brand launched in 1980 with the introduction of the original Canary Yellow Post-it® Note! Fun fact: To help introduce the brand new product, Post-it® Brand mailed packs of the original notes to Fortune 500 CEOs and their secretaries. Pretty smart, huh? Since then, Post-it® Brand has introduced everything from Post-it® Notes in new colors, shapes, and sizes to help us all create and collaborate, to Post-it® Note Flags and Tabs to help keep us all organized, to fun Post-it® Note Big Pads that help us when we need to dream a little bigger. Post-it® Brand products are an indispensable tool for anyone trying to create or stay organized, whether in the office, at school, or at home.
Last year, I partnered with Post-it® Brand to create a fun cocktail party menu made entirely of Post-it® Notes from the World of Color Collection! The Post-it® Notes come in a range of bright colors with 9 color palettes inspired by global design. We used the tropical-inspired colors of the Bora Bora collection, but I also love the bright neons of the Rio de Janeiro collection, the soft pastels of the Bali collection, and the candy colors of the Cape Town collection. It was such a fun challenge to think of a new way to use a product that has been a constant presence on my desk for so many years!
Post-it® Brand products have transformed the way we work, create, and even inspire achievement over the last 35 years – I’d love to hear the creative ways that you’ve used Post-it® Notes and other Post-it® Brand products in your life!
