These are exactly what you expect, 3x3 yellow Post-it Original Note pads. Each pad is 100 sheets and there are 12 pads in this package. I won't have to buy more for 10 years!

I like that pads themselves. The quality is very good, and I appreciate that they are recycled. Unfortunately, I think this product is way too expensive. Right now, the price is over a dollar a pad, and they aren't even full-size pads. The pads in this set only have 75 sheets, compared to typical post it notes with 100 sheets per pad. The use of, most likely, chemical dyes offsets any environmental value. I say most likely because the packaging doesn't mention the dying process, but I think it is fair to assume that if the dyes were environmentally friendly it would have been mentioned on the package. So, ultimately, you are not really benefiting the environment by using these, which makes it a waste of money.

First of all the light yellow color is soo pleasing on the eyes. Then they hit you with the 3" by 3" size! WOW! As a kicker, they throw in a little bit of semi-sticky glue that allows the sticky-note to be applied time and time again!! Who invented that, some super genius space alien???

As far as write-ability goes, the light yellow background boldly shows off both a blue ball-point or even a No.2 pencil - SPACE-AGE STUFF!

Finally, I can't say enough about the sheer number of Post-It notes included in this little 3 by 6 pack. 12 pads at 100 Post-Its each. You guys from NASA calculated that right, 1,200 Post-It notes in one handy package! Thats enough to annotate every single page of The Lord of the RIngs Trilogy and still have 63 Post-Its left over for making pencil flags, doll house window shades, or even one helluva Möbius strip!

The folks at 3M got this one right.

I have tried every type of post notes and by far, there are none better than the Post-It brand. Save your money and buy the best from the beginning.

I love color - brights, neutrals, pastels, basics, mixtures, etc. I am thankful that we have lots of colors to choose from, and that we don't live in a black and white world, or that we only had one color to choose from. I live in a color world.

These particular Post-It Notes are an assortment of pastel colors. I love blue, yellow, pink.

I color-code a lot. Sometimes I don't necessarily color-code, but I love having an assortment of colors to choose from just so I don't get bored with the same color.

I love these Pastel Post-It Notes.

And also, they are recycled, so that makes them even better!

I don't know what we ever did without them. I've found so many uses for these from posting notes on doors, to TVs, to messages in the kitchen to office uses to temporary bookmarks, etc. I have a book of these in almost every room. And the price shown here is a great deal.

I am a huge lover of sticky notes. I have them stuck all over my desk and I just don't know how I'd remember anything without them... There's really not much to say about sticky notes: they're square, you write on them, and then stick them somewhere. That being said, there is one requirement I absolutely have for a good sticky note - it needs to actually be sticky. Herein lies the problem with these Post-It brand "Greener Notes" - I've noticed that they just aren't as sticky as my regular sticky notes, nor many other sticky notes I've come across. I don't know why, but when I compared one of these sticky notes to one of my regulars, the stick-factor was much less. Since I like to stick these to my desk, it's very annoying when my sticky notes get accidentally brushed off (or blown off by a gust of air from the air conditioning vent) because they just don't have enough stick. I will say, though, that these are not the least-sticky post-it notes I've ever dealt with, and they would probably work fine in a situation where they aren't as close to your work area (where you might be accidentally be brushing against them). Other than that, the only other thing I can think of to comment on is the color - the package says these are "pastel", and they really are! Don't expect these to jump out at you with bright colors! The color of these is actually quite soft and muted, but of course, that's what one would expect from "pastels". I honestly don't care about the colors much either way, but I thought I'd mention it as some people prefer brighter attention-grabbing colors. Well, other than the stickiness problem, these are okay sticky notes; I give these sticky notes 3 stars for being decent but not perfect.

Almost anywhere you live around the globe it's probable that you have heard about Post-it Notes.

These originally yellow 3'' x 3''(76mm x 76mm) pieces of paper (now available in different colors) are coming in cube of 100 pieces, have sticky line of glue on their back that allows them to be written on, peeled off, glued to any surface and moved if needed multiple times without losing its adhesive abilities.

Post-it Notes are certainly one of the simplest but also the best office innovations that regardless of its basic premise have wide application.

Due to that I can fully recommend you to try Post-it Notes, you won't be sorry.

These are, functionally, 3x3 inch Post-it notes. They are in three pleasing pastel colors; no problem with reading notes written in normal ink colors. They differ from regular Post-it notes in using recycled and a (mostly) plant-based adhesive. Close examination suggests that the paper is slightly less stiff than the regular notes, with a slightly rougher surface. But if you aren't thinking about it you won't notice it. The adhesive seems to work very much like the regular sort.

Why might you want these, rather than some other variety? Not to make an ostentatious display of your greenness, since they don't shout out "recycled". (You'd have to tell everyone they're recycled.) To save the planet? If you are like most people, Post-it notes are a very small part of your paper usage, and all Post-it notes are recyclable.* So their major use is to make you feel a little better about using them. For the sake of the planet, remember to recycle as much of your used paper as you can.

* If Post-it notes make up a large part of your paper usage, please consider professional help. This could be a symptom of a more serious underlying problem.

I purchased these "greener notes" for use on a Kanban board. Unfortunately, every day a few more fall off the board making a mess and invalidating the board. The Kanban board started as a large sheet of paper, but we speculated that maybe removing and re-sticking the notes a couple times was picking up paper fibers and reducing the glue's effectiveness. We changed the board to some adhesive dry-erase material, and yet these greener notes keep falling off. If they were as sticky as the regular notes, I'd be much happier with them.
