About Post-It Note

The world first Post-it note is invented by 3M's Art Fry using a sticky element developed by a colleague, Dr Spencer Silver. The pressure sensitive sticky element was actually invented by accident! Art Fry successfully promoted the product to his company (3M) and the first post-It note was sold in 1977. The product did not take off until the company starts giving out free samples to consumers. By 1980, the product was being sold nationwide in the United States. Today, the product is sold internationally.

Until the 1990s, when the patent expired, Post-it notes were only produced in the 3M plant in Cynthiana, Kentucky. Although other companies now produce similar products, most of the world's Post-it notes are still made in Cynthiana.
