Designers for the Post-it Signature Series  range from established artists,
illustrators and pattern makers to breakout art students. Each artist has
created an exclusive collection that expresses their distinctive design
aesthetic, offering a variety of patterns to appeal to every taste and style.
Designer Khristian Howell’s geometric collections feature patterns with
classic shapes and a modern twist of cool blue and green hues, while famed
stationery illustrator Bonnie Marcus brings her signature fashion-forward,
metropolitan inspired approach to her collection.

The line also taps the fresh talent of the Minneapolis College of Art and
Design. Student Morgan Hoff-Golmen incorporates elements from iconic 1950’s
menswear into her designs, while playful sea creatures and vibrant underwater
patterns make up fellow student Madalyn Fusco’s aquatic themed collection.

“The Post-it Signature Series features high end design and originality that my
customers are looking for,” said Allison McWilliams, owner of the
Wisconsin-based Touch of Whimsy invitation and stationery store. “This
collection features an extensive variety of colorful, eye-catching patterns
that have the personal feel and premium quality I have come to know from 3M. I
love all the sizes!”

The designs fall into four categories: casual charm, classic allure, lavish
elegance, and eclectic chic. Each artist’s collection for the Post-it
Signature Series includes three different styles of adhesive notes: a classic
4 inch by 4 inch Note Pad for fashionable everyday reminders, a 4 inch by 8
inch List Pad for chic to-do lists, and 1 inch by 3 inch Page Markers in three
different designs to hold your place in style. Each note style is packaged in
a premium gift box and sold separately, giving the option to mix-and-match and
create a unique stationery set or stylish gift. Suggested retail prices range
from $14.95 - $19.95.

“The Post-it Brand is proud to partner with the artists of the Post-it
Signature Series,” said Jeff Hillins, global business director for Post-it
Brand. “Through these exclusive collaborations, we are celebrating and
showcasing an array of incredibly talented and creative designers, while
expanding our presence among independent retailers and giving customers new
ways to express their personality and style.”

The collection represents a new channel for the Post-it Brand, targeting
boutique stores and other stationery, gift and specialty shops. The Post-it
Signature Series is available to retailers nationwide through an e-commerce
ordering platform The user-friendly website allows
retailers to easily browse through each of the note collections, as well as
