Tips for creating Post-it® Super Sticky Note pixel art

We're excited to see so many people creating wall art with Post-it® Super Sticky Notes. It's a fun way to transform an office space or to bring life to a plainly decorated space at home. It's also a great project for students, families or co-workers to do together.

  • If you're ready to create your own pixel art using Post-it® Super Sticky Notes, here's a list of tips to get you started.

  • 1. Measure your wall space

    Wherever you plan to install your pixel art, measure the space and then use those measurements to figure out how many Post-it® Notes high and wide your design will be.

  • 2. Plan out your mural on a grid

    Having a plan will make it easier to install your pixel art mural, and it will make the whole process go a lot more smoothly. Lay out your design on a computer or tablet, or if it's a simple design, you can sketch it out on Post-it® Grid Notes, or graphing paper. Each pixel in your grid represents a 3" x 3" space-the size of one Post-it® Super Sticky Note.

  • 4. Keep color contrast in mind

    Pixel art looks best with high-contrast colors next to each other, so when you're picking out colors, think strikingly different, not noticeably the same.

  • 5. Super sticky, super awesome

    Use Post-it® Super Sticky Notes instead of original Post-it® Notes. Post-it® Super Sticky Notes are made with with a stronger adhesive that's better for vertical surfaces, but also removes cleanly, when you are ready to take the mural down.

  • 6. Look for single-color packs

    When you're ready to purchase supplies to create your mural, start with single-color packs of Post-it® Super Sticky Notes to ensure you have a good amount of the colors you need.

  • 7. Lift from the side

    Instead of lifting each sheet from the bottom and pulling it off of the pad in a vertical direction, lift each sheet from the side. Carefully pull it off the pad in a horizontal direction. This helps keep the notes flat and reduces curl in the note.
