A few weeks ago I was checking out my local Staples, and I came across these unique and interesting looking mix of paper clips and page flags. I figured I’d grab them to take a closer look, but Staples no longer has these on their website, so here is the unbranded version on Amazon where they also have a ton of different colors, designs, and patterns.
The KeyNotes are essentially paper clips that have a pretty sturdy cardboard flag loosely attached to them. The cardboard is about the same thickness as your average index cards, and in this case they come in orange, pink, purple, and green. Each of these measures about 3/4″ at the widest point, and they are abou 2 1/4″ long.
To me, the most obvious use for these was to stick them in my notebook to act as dividers for different subjects. In doing so I found that they went in fairly easily, however it was not as easy to adjust them by sliding them up and down as I thought it would be. When I tried to adjust the vertical position of them, I quickly found that the paper clip portion separated easily from he cardboard portion. This is not really a huge issue, just more of a minor nuisance. I think these would probably also make for a good way to separate index cards in any kind of holder, like a recipe box or old school way to manage your contacts. Not a bad product, but not a great product either, as I said before though, you can check them out here on Amazon in all kinds of different styles.
