Noting on labels

The Manual Thinking Removable Labels are meant to recollect all thoughts, ideas and opinions of your team members. To achieve the best end-result it is important to:

– Be brief & to the point
– Be visual, draw!

By using the right drawing material, the user is encouraged to abbreviate the content and the resulting map will be readable at glance.
