I'm very surprised that no one has mentioned how it is hard to write on these
with pen. It's sort of a scratchy plastic surface that doesn't lend itself well
to pen, especially rollerballs. My favorite Uniball Signo 207's won't even write
on the surface. Pens that are very inky can ball up and take FOREVER to dry.
Only pens that work decently are marker type pens, like the Sharpie Pens. Actual
permanent Sharpies also work well and don't bleed through, so this is great for
Sharpie fanatics. But if you're trying to use these for note taking and don't
want to carry around an extra pen/pens just to use them then these definitely
aren't for you. I would actually repurchase (and plan to) since it's so hard
to find clear sticky notes that are clear and aren't tinted another color.
Another thing I like is how thin and sleek they are, when you put it down on one
side of the page and need to write on the other side, there is minimal
bumps/raised edges around the note; in contrast to how you can definitely feel
regular stick notes/post its.
As for the stickiness, like another review mentioned these are less sticky than
I thought they would be, but for my personal needs, which is mainly using these
for texts/literature, this is a good quality since they will be easily removable
later on and I won't have to worry about ripping any pages.
