Getting Ready for School with Post-it Brand

I’ve always loved the beginning of school . . . brand new clothes, books, and most of all . . . school supplies. There’s nothing like pencils that are all the same length, erasers still in their original shape, and clean notebooks. And with all the modern designs and colors available to today’s kids, back-to-school supplies are not only practical but great looking, too!

I recently received a surprise gift box filled with Post-it Brand products in the mail and I couldn’t have been more excited!

The Post-it Note was invented as a solution without a problem: Dr. Spencer Silver developed a unique, repositionable adhesive, but the 3M scientist didn’t know what to do with his discovery. Then, six years later, a colleague of Dr. Silver, Art Fry, remembered the light adhesive when he was daydreaming about a bookmark that would stay put in his church hymnal. The rest is history.

Today, Post-it Brand boasts more than 4,000 unique products, and has become one of the most well-known and beloved brands in the world.

First of all, here is a selection of their signature product – Post-it notes. However, did you know that there are a variety of them ranging from super sticky to full adhesive to pop-up notes? Even the original Post-it notes now come a wide assortment of colors. And there’s also Recycled Notes that are made from 30% recycled paper. These are my favorite because they’re a little larger than the usual Post-it Notes and come lined for easy writing.

Next are the labels and tabs. The Label Pads are fully adhesive and can be used to label books and tablets. Just write, peel and stick. Then there’s the Filing Tabs for organizing your file folders. I like that they come in 4 different colored labels so I can differentiate by just a glance. The Flags can be used to make pages in a book that you want to come back to later and the Note Tabs give you a little extra room to make notes. This is a great idea especially if you’re borrowing the book or want to resell it one day.

Pockets are another great way to keep you organized. We receive a small pack and a letter-sized pack both of which come with 3 pockets each. The Small Pockets are completely adhesive so you can attach them to the front of your tablet or folder. It’s a great way to keep smaller pieces of paper all in one place since there’s a closure on the front. The Letter-Sized pockets can be attached to your wall to keep all your important things handy . . . theater tickets, bills, coupons, etc. Both of these products removes cleanly without damaging surfaces.

Finally, why not show off your Post-it Sticky Notes with a cute dispenser? We received a Wall Mounted Dispenser for Pop-up type Post-it Notes as well as a cute Apple designed one. This Apple dispenser would make a great teacher gift!
