What Are mcSquares Stickies?
mcSquares Stickies are reusable, dry-erase, adhesive-free stickers.
How can they be adhesive-free and still stick?
The sticky part is a special foam called Bubble Bond Tape that actually form microscopic suction cups, almost like hundreds of octopus tentacles. When you press them on smooth surfaces, they form hundreds of tiny vacuums and stay that way.
Can Stickies damage what they are sticking to?
In rare circumstances they can bond to inexpensive, porrly applied paint. Essentially, the vacuum forms so strong that the Stickie can pull the paint off. We have seen this happen once on cheap paint that was applied to unprimered aluminum. We recomend that you test Stickies on very smooth painted surfaces before using.
Will they stick to anything?
Almost anything smooth. Because they work with suction, they attach to non-porous materials. We've tested them on everything from glass to file cabinets, to dry-erase boards, and even satin painted textured dry-wall.
How long will a Stickie stay put?
They should stick for years on clean, smooth surfaces. As long as there is no way for the vacuum to escape, they'll stick there for a very long time.
How long will my Stickies last?
They will last up to 2,000 sticks - more if you do not wrinkle them and you store them in a cool-dry place when not in use.
What if my Stickie stops sticking?
That means it is dirty. When dirt gets into the microsuction pockets, they will stop adhearing. Simply wash the back of your Sticky off with a little dish soap and water, let them dry, and they will stick as good as new.

What Are mcSquares Tiles
mcSquares Tiles are magnetic dry-erase tiles. If you need to plan your next big project, categorize your production processes or just keep your thoughts organized, mcSquares Tiles are the perfect, easy to use solution.
Will they stick to my fridge?
Many refrigerators have ferrous metals in them (meaning they attract magnets). If cheap store-bought magnets stick you your fridge, Tiles will work very well!
What are Tiles made out of?
They are made of a lightweight composite material, consisting of a plastic core and a thin aluminum skin. One side is painted with a durable, high-performance dry-erase enamel and on the back side we attach a rare-earth magnet. They sit a little off the surface they are sticking to, making them easy to move around.
