“ Brand: Post-it / Type: Stationery „
I always find that when I need a bit of paper there's none to be found anywhere despite the face that I own several notepads. I think it's because notepads are a little big and unslightly to keep in the kitchen. I was really glad when my daughter bought me this dispenser for my birthday as it's lovely and girly and looks nice enough to sit on the side in my kitchen.
The dispenser came in a clear, plastic box and was sat in a cardboard tray. It's solid and quite heavy which is good because when you pull the post it notes out you don't end up moving the dispenser accross the counter. The dispenser itself is a lovely dark pink colour and has been made into a heart shape. It's a shiny, smooth plastic with a recangular hole in the middle where the post-it notes come from. You re-fill the dispenser by taking the back off and putting a new pack of notes in. It's really simple to do.
When I first got the dispenser, it came with a little packet of pink post-it notes which looked lovely in the pink dispenser. They're like normal post-it notes with the small adhesive strip at the top so you can make notes then stick them on the wall or cupboard doors if you're me. They stick pretty well so they're increidbly handy to use when you're in the kitchen and discover you've run out of something, you can make a note of it and stick it on the fridge to remind you later.
The dispenser is lovely, it's really easy to use and the post-its come out easily. I found myself trying to find excuses to make notes about anything when I first got it just as an excuse to use it. When the pink post-it notes ran out, I bought the normal yellow ones to re-fill it which are available at most places like Asda, Tesco, WHS, wilko's etc for a couple of pound. On my last shop, I discovered a pack of three post-it note pads in different colours for £2. You get a blue pad, pink pad and green pad which look quite pretty in the pink dispenser.
I'd definitely recommend this dispenser, it looks ever so pretty on my kitchen counter and comes in handy on a daily basis. It's ideal for home or work to jot down sudden brainwaves, appointment reminders, shopping items etc. I've had lots of compliments from visiting friends about it. It's sturdy, does the job and looks pretty, what more could you ask for?
You can get these dispensers from a variety of shops and online but make sure you shop around as they vary quite greatly in price. The cheapest I've found them for is £5.99 on ebay but there was the same one on amazon for £18.00 so be sure to find the best price if you buy one!
So our house is a bit of a post it shrine but for some reason there is never any to hand when you need them. So when I saw this on offer I had to have it for the hall side table.
So it's pink, shaped like a heart and holds your standard size post it notes. What else would you need to know. Well quite a few things are important when dealing with post it notes in a dispenser.
First for me is can you pull the notes out one handed? That gets a great big yes. The base is weighted which makes it nice an secure on the table for pulling out your notes. It has the added advantage of doubling as a paperweight if required.
The next question is does it hold a reasonable amount of notes at a time? Again a big yes. Admittedly the initial pack it came with was not that big but there was plenty of space for more and there is a pop up part to the dispenser which ensures the pack always sits at the top. The only problem with this is that you can't see how many notes you have left.
And finally, is it easy to refill. Now that's a mixed answer. Actually opening the device and refilling couldn't be any easier. Just turn it over and there is a clip to press and the base separates from the top with the new pad of post its ready to go in. It clicks reassuringly back into place when closed. You need to choose carefully what notes to fill it with however. Your ordinary notes just won't work and you need the concertina ones. You could create your own by swapping alternate notes round but that would be way to dull. Post it do sell these packs but I'm not aware of any of the slightly cheaper alternatives doing so.
A nice wee dispenser that is easy to use.
In our house whenever we want a piece of note paper we can never seem to find any despite having several note pads in various places, so a few weeks ago my Mum brought me a posit note dispenser, I have one of these at work, although the one at work is rather plain and boring, and so far I have found it to be extremely useful, so having one around the house was also going to be handy as it meant I would always have a piece of paper to hand should either of us need it.
The Post it Note dispenser came in a large clear plastic box, it had the name of the product written on the top and the dispenser itself sat within a cardboard tray to keep it still and from moving around as the whole thing is quite heavy.
The Post it Note dispenser is basically a large bright pink shiny heart shape , it is totally plain apart from the Post it logo in white in the corner, however this is very small and does not detract away from the dispenser itself. Right in the centre of the dispenser on the top is a large slit about a couple of centimetres high and about an inch long, this is where the Post it Notes come from. The base of the Post it Note dispensers is a slightly darker coloured pink compared to the top, near the pointed part of the heart shape is a small leaver set within the plastic, if you push this one way it releases the top of the dispenser from the base allowing you to put the Posit Notes inside ready for use. Setting up the dispenser was very easy, this actually comes with a small packet of pink square Posit Notes, or as they are sometimes known Z Notes, these are basically Posit Notes joined together in Z shapes so that when you remove one Posit Note from the dispenser another one appears in its place ready for use, a bit like when you take a tissue from a tissue box.
To set up the dispenser I simply pressed the leaver on the base to remove the top, inside there was a small square sharpened area, I sat the Posit Notes within this an poked the first Posit Note through the slit in the top of the dispenser, I then put the top part back on top of the base and clicked to the two sections back together, that was basically it the Post it Note dispenser was ready to use.
The pink square Posit Notes which come with the dispenser are the proper Post it Note brand, they are basically a small square of pale pink paper, they have a sticky strip along the top of each note so that you can stick notes to things whether it is a reminder for yourself or someone else. The sticky strip sticks extremely well to all sorts of surfaces, however you can easily remove them without leaving a glue mark behind. The Post it Notes pull out of the dispenser very smoothly and as soon as you remove one note another one is instantly in its place ready for use.
Personally I like the design of the dispenser, it is a little bit different to the regular boring ones you see in offices and I particularly like the bright pink colour, despite the brightness of this product it does not look tacky or out of place at all. We actually keep ours on the table next to our telephone, that way we know where it is and it is also handy should you want to write something down when on the phone. The Posit Note Heart Dispenser can be purchased from a variety of shops, my Mum got mine from Tesco, it should have been sold at £10.00 which personally I do think is a bit on the expensive side, I do really like the design and style of the product but I'm not sure I would be prepared to pay £10.00 for it, however when my Mum purchased mine they had money off and she only paid £2.00 for it, personally I thought this was an excellent price and a real bargain, I would certainly be happy to pay this for the product. Obviously the price does vary depending on where you purchase it from for example Amazon have them for £8.99. I do think this product has proved to be extremely good value for money especially at £2.00, but I would not pay £10.00 for a Posit Note dispenser.
Overall I would definitely recommend the Posit Note Heart Dispenser, we have had a lot of use out of ours, it is very handy to have in the house as you can always find a piece of paper when you need it rather than having to hunt around for a note pad. I particularly like the design and colour of my dispenser, it is a bit different to the boring ones you tend to see in offices. It is easy to refill the dispenser when needed and the Post it Notes needed are readily available from a variety of stationary shops as well as some supermarkets, also you do not have to stick to the pale pink Posit Notes that come with the dispenser, you can buy these in a variety of colours. My only criticism with this is probably the price when it is sold at full price, however as mine was only £2.00 I would definitely say it was well worth the money. I would certainly recommend the Post it Note Heart shaped dispenser, it is extremely useful to have in your home, or you could even use it at work to brighten up your desk.
