NoteShel Sticky Note Holder Review

5 April 2018 By ian

NoteShel are a UK based company who asked me if I’d like to take a look at a couple of their products, one of which is this holder for sticky notes (post-its). These are my own opinions

NoteShel Sticky Note Holder Review

The Sticky Note holder costs £10 and comes in five colours: pink, green, purple, blue and orange. It holds 90 3” by 5” post-its and comes with a ballpoint pen that’s held in with the case magnetically.

The post-its sit in a tray within the holder.

They’re aren’t fixed there in any way so they can lift up when you’re pulling a note from the stack.

The case looks good, with the two colours of plastic, and it’s robust too. The spine feels like it will last forever.

The pen rests in a lip at the edge and is held in place, just about, with magnets. The magnets aren’t very strong. If the holder is sat on a table then they’re enough to keep the pen in place but if you move the holder around, or carry it about in a bag, the pen will wander off.

The pen itself has a satisfying click to the mechanism. The tip does have some play to it and the refill is very average. It’s a Parker (G2) style refill, though, which means there are plenty of good alternative options. However, for the intended purpose, scribbling notes on a post-it, the included refill is absolutely fine.

I’ve been using this holder routinely. It’s a great way of keeping ugly looking sticky notes out of sight but within reach on a desk. Before it arrived I’d been hoping it would be something that could live in a bag. It isn’t and I think that’s a missed opportunity. All it needs is a way of being kept closed securely. However, as a desk item, it’s great.
