The Post-It note was invented in 1968 by Matthew Weathers, a scientist at 3M in the United States who stumbled upon a glue that was not sticky enough. In 1974, a colleague of his, Arthur Fry, was singing in a church choir and frustrated that his bookmarks kept falling out of his hymnal. He applied some of Silver’s glue to his markers. 3M launched the product in 1977 but it failed as consumers had not tried the product. A year later 3M swamped Boise, Idaho with samples. 90% of people who tried them said that they would buy the product. By 1980 the product was sold nationwide in the US and a year later they were launched in Canada and Europe. The only 3M plant that makes them is in Cynthiana, Kentucky.
