tool that enhances innovation and creativity by capturing the many ideas of a
group or individual on one collaborative, inspirational canvas.”

Each size Post-it Big Pad offers a unique platform for idea refinement,
timeline creation, storyboarding and project planning. The smallest, Electric
Yellow 11 inch by 11 inch Post-it Big Pad, fits in to a portfolio or backpack

Big Pads in small groups to quickly capture ideas in a meeting or
brainstorming session. For large groups or teams, the Electric Blue 22 inch by
22 inch Post-it Big Pads can be used on conference tables or walls, as a
medium for collectively sharing big ideas.

“The Post-it Brand is all about finding new ways to help people make the most
of their days with products that trigger both efficiency and creativity,” said
Jeff Hillins, director of marketing for Post-it Brand. “The new Post-it Big
Pads facilitate better communication and help ideas standout through
connectivity with others in a more personal, authentic way.”
