The discovery of the memo
The discovery of Post-it note was very accidental. The Scientists were trying to invent a highly viscous glue, only to find that it was weaker. Just when everyone was frustrated, a man at 3M discovered its true value in this experiment. So it becomes an opportunity to make billions of dollars.

 
In 1968, Dr. Spencer Silver, a scientist at 3M in the United States, attempted to develop a super-strong adhesive. Instead, he accidentally created a "low-tack", reusable, pressure-sensitive adhesive. For five years, Silver promoted his "solution without a problem" within 3M both informally and through seminars, but failed to gain "adherents". In 1974, a colleague who had attended one of his seminars, Art Fry, came up with the idea of using the adhesive to anchor his bookmark in his hymn book . Fry then utilized 3M's sanctioned "permitted bootlegging" policy to develop the idea. The original notes' pale yellow color was chosen by chance, from the color of the scrap paper used by the lab next door to the Post-It team. 

 

The markting of the Post-it
In 1978, many market studies showed that people's reaction to stickers convenience stickers was mixed. Marketing staff realized that the key to success was for customers to try out the product first, so they conducted a well-known pilot promotion in Idaho, called "Boise Bombing" -- they stuffed the test supplies into the local office stationery supply market, surprising 90 percent of consumers who said they would buy the product. Soon, 3M management gave the product the green light. In 1979, newspaper stickers convenience stickers were first introduced in 11 western U.S. states, with a large number of trials. Market testing has been very successful and some people even buy convenience stickers before the products start to be launched in the market and ship them to other cities for their colleagues to use. In 1980, stickers notes were rolled out throughout the United States. Lee Iacocca, a former president of Ford Motor Co. and Chrysler Automobiles Co., and other Fortune 500 executives have written to 3M to express their love for the new commemorative gift.
