Amazing - I've been blogging since October 2006 and I have yet to write about sticky notes! Well, it's time to remedy that. Office supply fans, this one's for you!

But even staying with the 3M Post-it brand, you have a wide range of options. Especially noteworthy are the Post-its made from recycled paper. [photo from The Green Office]
And if you want something a bit more interesting, there's plenty to choose from. Russell+Hazel is one place worth looking.

These simple lined adhesive notes (available in four colors) come from M.O. Update on Jan. 13, 2011: It seems these are no longer available.
Moving on to more elaborate sticky notes, Galison/Mudpuppy has a number of choices. Each set has eight pads; the pads are in three different sizes.
Lotta Jansdotter has some lovely sticky notes, available through Chronicle Books. The sticky notes are sold in sets of 8 pads, with 25 sheets/pad. [photo from Amazon.com; via frolic] Update on Oct. 3, 2012: You can also buy these through Ingebretsen's Scandinavian Gifts.
You can get a similar set of sticky notes designed by Sukie, also published by Chronicle Books. [Again, photo from Amazon.com; via frolic]
And moving along to Etsy, Cicada Studio has these sticky notes with foxes - as well as others with birds.
If you want cute, Asking for Trouble is glad to oblige. Update on Oct. 3, 2012: I'm no longer finding these sticky notes for sale.
Rachael Hale is known for her animal photography, and some of that has been translated to sticky notes - available here.
And then there's Jellycat, known for its stuffed animals - which now provides animal-themed sticky notes, too.
And finally, from Australia, kikki.K brings us these fanciful sticky notes. Update on March 31, 2010: Kikki.K still sells sticky notes, but not the one shown above.
