Advanced Sticky Note Handling

Reading Time: < 1 minute

I’ve run a fair few workshops over the years, and they tend to include many sticky notes and have learnt a few tricks along the way. Here are my top tips for professional sticky note handling.

They’ll be easier to read and photograph, Pull a sticky note down firmly to remove it while gripping the pack underneath. They won’t coil or fall off the wall as much

  1. Pull notes ACROSS not UP/DOWN when removing from the stack; This will remove almost any chance of coil, and as a result they will always stick properly (glue quality notwithstanding)

      A sharp pull down is the best way I know to keep them super flat, not coiling and staying on the wall (see the diagram above). Across is second best in my opinion.
