Elegant Paper-Weight Dispenser is part of an Efficient Office System with Customizable Options
on April 10, 2012
Just started using this and wish I had found this product back in 2007 when it first became available on Amazon. It keeps your Post-it notes handy so you don't have pads scattered all over your desk or lost under piles of papers and as a bonus it works as a great paper-weight.
Here's the stats and some info about the system:
+ Weight = 1 pound, 1 oz which makes it a great paperweight
+ Square = 4" x 4" on top. 3.25" x 3.5" at the base.
+ Height = 1.5" at the height of the curve where the Post-its dispense and 1.125" at the corners
+ Post-its = This comes with what looks to be a pad of 50 3" x 3" Post-its in the original canary yellow. I've loaded a pad of 100 which seems to be the Post-it standard and close to maximum capacity of this dispenser. In addition to the original yellow, it holds any of the more than half a dozen color schemes that 3M makes including: Spring into action, Be brilliant, Stay sweet, Go bold, Bright on! Etc. My personal favorite is the Ruled Canary Yellow as the lines make it easier to compose an organized, legible and professional looking note or list. You can find the ruled pads at a nice price on Amazon at:
These ruled 3" x 3" Post-its work great with my large 22" x 17.5" traditional wall calendar as the daily columns are 3" wide so they match the Post-its. They work even better with my Board Dudes 7.5"x23" Weekly Planner Combo Board that I keep in my office. Again the 3" x 3" pads match the column width and there is room to layer multiple post-it notes and shuffle them as needed. You can find the Planner Board on Amazon at:
+ Customization = Oh yeah, you can make your own templates or try to get them from 3M to personalize the look of this product as other reviewers have pointed out. Personally I like the black & clear acrylic look; very elegant, very sharp. It looks better in person than the picture on the web.
I've found no negatives to this product yet and I don't expect to based on its solid design. However, if I do, I'll update this post as I have with others.
