Memo pads

Something from history

The firs manufacturer of memo pads is considered to be an American company “3M”. In 1968 Spencer Silver, the chemist of 3M, invented the easily removable glue which left no traces. Later that glue became a basis of sticky notes thanks to Arthur Fry (another employee of “3M”) who used Silver's invention for gluing bookmarks in his prayer book.

In the United States the bulk sale of the sticky notes began in 1980, and in 1981 it entered the European market.

In 1999 the Fortune magazine recognized the memo pads as one of the most important inventions of the XX century.
