Press release from the issuing company

CHICAGO, March 6 - Publishers and advertisers will soon benefit from increased revenue opportunities and brand awareness as a result of R.R. Donnelley's introduction of Post-it Notes products in telephone directories. Utilizing the world-famous Canary Yellow Post-it Note from 3M, the company is the first to offer a variety of product formats to this market.
