Rocketbook, which makes reusable notebooks like the Rocketbook Pro I reviewed in late 2022, is expanding beyond notebooks to launch reusable Sticky Notes that can be used alongside them.
Rather than use throw-away sticky notes, you can jot down what you need on the erasable pen and paper notes, stick them to the document or object you desire, then erase and use them again. They can stick and re-stick thousands of times, says the company. While there are similar dry erase products, the Rocketbook Sticky Notes offer a traditional pen experience, using any Pilot Frixion pen.
The Sticky Notes also work with Rocketbook’s cloud-connected scanning technology so you can scan and keep the contents of sticky notes in a digital folder if desired. This might be useful for professionals, students, creators, ideators, and others.
“It’s an exciting time for the brand,” says Jen Elmashni, new General Manager of Rocketbook by BIC. “With the Sticky Notes launch, we’re tapping into Rocketbook’s innovative spirit and doing what we do best: redefining notetaking by creating new products that will drive change in the paper industry. I couldn’t be happier to join the team and help further their goal of eliminating the need for single-use paper.”
The Rocketbook Sticky Notes Starter Kit is available for US$24 and includes a stack of 18 reusable sticky notes housed in a specially designed storage case. The set also comes with a Pilot FriXion pen and microfibre towel for wiping the notes clean. There will also be Expansion Packs with additional sticky notes in different colours for those who love leaving notes around the house, flagging pages in a novel or project, and colour-coding things.
The launch goes live on Kickstarter today, and it marks Rocketbook’s 10th crowdfunding campaign and the brand’s first entrance into an entirely new product category. According to the company, crowdfunding has helped Rocketbook raise more than US$3.4 million for product development since its first campaign launch in 2015.
Rocketbook was acquired by BIC for US$40 million in 2020. The company’s products not only focus on convenience, but also on helping the planet through saving trees and eliminating paper use. I can attest to the difference it makes: since getting a Rocketbook, I have not used a paper notebook for my work, and written and erased the same pages numerous times.
