I am the person who jots down notes on almost everythin that I have. This type of post-it allows me to make notes without ruining the original template or copy. As is the standard for post-it products they lift off easily without tearing the paper or leaving a mark. I'd love it if the writing surface was a bigger. I'd be estatic if the post-it covered the same width but was nearly as long as the standard 8x11 paper that I'm affixing it to. I would definately purchase these tabs again. Pleased!!!
