Think big with Office Corporate and Post-it Notes
No matter what people tell you, words and ideas can change the world." – Robin Williams
Humble ideas and thoughts have sparked life-changing solutions for decades. A simple idea sparks others, and with a little luck, perseverance, and dedication, little ideas become historic solutions or multi-million-dollar businesses.
The Post it notes has held little ideas for over 70 years and has been sparking creativity, facilitating communication between people, and housing thoughts for decades around the world.
Whether you need to leave yourself a reminder, flag important sections in documents at work, or even stick affirmations to your mirror, Post it notes has the perfect solution.
The famous Post it notes the story of chance
You may be surprised to find out that Play Doh range, the microwave, potato chips, penicillin, the match stick, the x-ray, cornflakes, chewing gum, superglue, and the Post it has something very specific in common. All of these life-changing inventions were born completely by accident.
Play-Doh was originally meant to be wall cleaner. Potato chips were created by an annoyed chef who jokingly sliced potatoes paper-thin for a customer who wanted thinner french fries. Cornflakes were made by the Kelloggs brothers who left some cooked wheat out too long. Even chewing gum was created while trying to make a rubber.
All of these products that have become engrained in our lives were mistakes. The legendary Post it story is no different.
The ground-breaking Post it adhesive formula was discovered by chance in a 3M lab by Dr. Spencer Silver. Dr. Silver was attempting to create a super-strong adhesive but ended up stumbling upon something quite different. The result? An adhesive that seemed to contradict itself! The adhesive stuck effectively to surfaces but also was easily removed and left no residue.
The Post It notes in its current form, however, was only created years later when Dr. Silver’s colleague, Art Fry was looking for a solution to a very specific problem. Every Wednesday evening, Fry practiced with his church choir and used scrap paper as bookmarks in his hymn book. Fry became increasingly annoyed with these scrap paper bookmarks as they kept falling out. The two 3M colleagues collaborated to solve Fry’s problem with Silver’s science and the first Post-it was born.
The iconic yellow paper of the Post it was even accidental as well with the 3M employees sourcing the paper for their Post-its from the lab next door, who only happened to have yellow.
