Reusable Sticky Notes with Thousands of Tiny Suction Cups. (Really.)

Stickies can do so many things. But how do they work?

Stickies are reusable sticky notes - like a little whiteboard you can stick just about anywhere. Write on them, and post them almost anywhere. Then wipe them clean, and write on them again - thousands of times. Peel them off and reuse them in a new spot. It’s surprising how reliably they stick to shiny surfaces, while still being easy to remove.  

When people use Stickies for the first time, one of their most common questions is, “How do these little whiteboards work?”

So I asked one of our engineers. He told me to visualize a surface covered with tiny suction cups. And I mean tiny. So I grabbed a magnifying glass and took a closer look. As I suspected, they’re just too small to see. But being small doesn’t mean they’re not strong. They’ll stick to just about any shiny surface, and they only come off when you peel them away. 

We use a new material called BubbleBond™ micro-suction foam, and we attach it to our premium dry-erase finishes. The result is sort of a small whiteboard you can stick to almost any shiny surface: your fridge, a bathroom mirror, a computer monitor, even windows. 

One of the best things about these little suction cups is that each Stickie stays tacky for a long time. As you reuse your Stickies whiteboard sticky notes over and over, they might collect a little dust. Just wipe the BubbleBond backing with a damp cloth, and they’re as good as new. You can reuse each Stickie up to 2,000 times! 

And because our Stickies don’t use any moisture or adhesive to stick, they don’t leave any marks or residue behind. Peel your grocery list off the fridge and take it with you. Have your young artist make new Stickie whiteboard art day after day. The more feedback we get from our customers, the more we see new ways that Stickies help you conquer the chaos of your everyday life.
