You’ve got to hand it to the written word: In spite of ongoing advancements in visual communications, photography, film, computer graphics and video, the ability to write well is still valued.

“Ideal for temporarily marking pages in books and reference materials.” – OfficeMax.com
“Adhesive backing makes notes defy gravity, as if by magic.” – Poppin.com
