Who Invented The Post-It-Note?
A Post-it note or post-it, is a piece of stationery with a strip of unique low tack adhesive that enables the post-it notes to be easily attached and removed without leaving marks or residue, hence the actual name post sticky note. They are called many names: post-it’s, post-it notes, sticky notes, stickies, postit, sticky pads, desktop post it notes, postits, and many others. Custom post-it notes are available in many shapes, colors, and sizes. Post-it note is frequently used as a generic term for any such product.
Dr. Spencer Silver, a scientist at 3M in the United States, developed a low-tack, reusable adhesive in 1968.
