Adhesive note holders tend to stick out, even on a cluttered desktop. And we all know that desktops can be cluttered. I once saw a desk (belonging to a particularly eccentric Professor) with stacks of paper, pens, and other items that nearly reached the ceiling – but at the center of those stacks was a single adhesive note holder in which this quirky Professor managed all of his business. It was small and yellow, with the crest of his alma mater imprinted in bold colors at the top, and looked as if it had been around as long as he had. Clearly, these items have the potential to become extensions of recipients’ own existences, which seems to have been the case with my old pal the Professor.
