Handy little squares!
Member Name: hanmillie
Advantages: Good adhesion to most surfaces, good quality, excellent visual prompts
Disadvantages: None in my opinion
I have recently started a new job, and as a result I was given a number of new items of stationary when I started, one such item being a number of packets of post it notes. In my opinion, a girl can never have too many post it notes, and therefore having a number of options given to me with my new desk was great as they were one of the first things I used upon starting my new position.
For those who haven't had the pleasure of owning a stack of post it notes, let me explain. Post it notes are quite simply little squares of paper which are stuck together with a strip of sticky back to create little towers of squares and these are typically used to create memos which can be stuck around your office to create lovely little visuals. Traditionally these little notes were yellow in colour and square in shape, however over the years, and certainly in during my working career, they have been added to so that they now include squares of varying shades of seemingly every colour in the rainbow which are both small and large and even flower shaped. Being a girly sort of girl, I can't think of anything nicer than having a stack of pink post its on my desk at home, and these create a lovely square of shocking pink around my house, reminding me to do tasks or simply to call someone back.
Moving to my new job, I have the privilege of owning various sizes of post it notes, however they are all yellow in colour much to my dismay. The beauty of these little squares of paper in my opinion is that they will stick to virtually any surface around my office without leaving a mark and this extends to the pages of books and to the sticking of them to my new bosses computer monitor. In addition, the stickiness of these notes is quite strong and they will easily stick to a surface for a few days until the task is completed and they can be put in the bin. The handy little size of these notes, being around 7.5cm by 7.5cm in dimension, means that they give sufficient space to write a brief note and give a flash of yellow against my otherwise quite plain coloured desk making sure that they stand out and prompt me. I do not (currently) own a smart phone, preferring to use my Outlook as a reminder and post it notes as prompts throughout the day, and these little squares suit the task perfectly.
The quality of these notes is excellent in my opinion. The sticky back ensures that they stick together in a neat little tower in between uses and the thick paper with which they are constructed means that they provide an easy surface to write on which does not allow the ink to penetrate through as thinner paper might.
The only thing that I would say about my new post it notes is that they are slightly too large to put inside contractual documents to prompt people to sign certain pages, and therefore I have put some post it 'flags' on my next stationary order. Price wise, you should expect to pay around £1 - £1.50 for one stack of notes and whilst I have not counted how many notes you get in one little tower I have found in my experience that they will easily last me for a couple of months with regular use.
I have been very pleased overall with my experience of post it notes and believe that they are good quality and functional little squares, therefore they come highly recommended by me. As a result this product scores an excellent five stars.
I hope this review has been of some help and thanks for reading! x
