The invention of sticky notes is credited to Dr. Spencer Silver and Art Fry from 3M. Dr. Silver discovered a unique adhesive in 1968, leading to Art Fry's breakthrough in 1974, where he applied this adhesive to small papers.
The official launch of Post-it Notes by 3M in 1980 marked the beginning of a new era in note-taking and organization.
Sticky notes are crafted using eco-friendly, lightweight paper from sustainable sources, ensuring compatibility with the adhesive and ink for longevity and clarity.
The key to sticky notes' reusability is their unique pressure-sensitive adhesive. This allows them to be repositioned multiple times without leaving residue or damaging surfaces.
High-quality inks are utilized for printing, ensuring that branding and lines remain vibrant and distinct throughout the lifespan of the sticky notes.
