The Difference A Promotional Sticky Note Makes

If you've ever used printed sticky notes, you'll know just how useful they really are! Our memory is an outstanding concept that allow us to remember things, such as people's names or directions to a certain place. In a way our memories make us who we are, as we usually learn from our past experiences... and how do you know you've experienced something in the past... you use your memory to remember it.

Our memory is a part of us, but it doesn’t exist in the same way as other parts of our bodies do – it's not a “thing” you can touch. It is a concept that refers to the process of remembering. If you think back to what you had for breakfast or dinner the previous night and images of beans on toast or a breakfast cereal pop into your mind, this is your brain remembering.

When you try and remember someones name your brain usually tries to picture them, or something that relates to their name to help you remember. Everything we do on a daily basis requires your memory at some point, whether it's remembering the train times, bus times, what time you have to pick the kids up from school or even if it's just how to spell something... we need our memory to be able to write, eat, drink and even walk.

With our memory storing all of this information for us to function day to day, it's no wonder we often forget the little things like 'buy milk' or 'remind the boss about his meeting'. This is where printed sticky notes come into play. Just a little note on the side of your computer, by the phone or stuck on the fridge (with the thing you must not forget written on) will trigger your memory and stop you forgetting.

Sticky notes have been used for many years, to help people remember all sorts of things. However they also have another very entertaining use as a flip book. Flip books (for those of you who don't know) are books with a series of pictures that vary gradually from one page to the next, so that when the pages are turned rapidly, the pictures appear to animate by simulating motion or some change.
