Let's talk about post-it note details, the actual physical characteristics of a post-it note. There are a couple of things I want you to be aware of. Typically they're going to be 3x5 - that's what I'll call a small size - or a 4x6, and they can be landscape or portrait.
You have them pre-printed. There are a number of websites that you can go out to for that. We'll get into this in a minute.
The Marketing Message
Typically you're going to be looking to do a marketing message with a couple of bullet points about why they should do business with you. Then you have your contact information: website, email, phone number, and a request to call or email you.
You typically probably do somewhere in the range of 20,000 to 30,000, maybe even 50,000 of these to order at one time. You get some costs benefits of ordering larger quantities.
They're going to cost you around $0.03 a post-it note if you buy fairly large quantities. If you buy fairly small quantities it might be $0.07 or $0.08 per post-it note printed with your custom message on there. If you can afford to order 20,000 to 40,000 at a time - even if you don't deliver them all today - there are some cost benefits to doing that.
They generally come in pads of 25, 50 or 100 per pad. They will not typically have the cellophane wrapper around them. They'll come in a big box.
The way you get these is you go out to Google and you type in pre-printed post-it notes and several thousand people will come up. These are becoming more popular, so there are a lot of people that allow you to go into their website and you can upload your message, proof it and all that.
There is a company that I've used before and called The Discount Printer. There's a website there and they are very familiar with these. They work with Richard Roop, who is the original person who designed post-it notes.
He's the first person I'm aware of that was doing this. The Discount Printer still works with Richard in terms of doing that. He's got a number of templates that are already Richard Roop style. You can even simply go with one of those. They're good messages.
You would obviously change your phone number email. Other than that you wouldn't have to change too much. Then you can order them from The Discount Printer.
