Searching for smaller post-it note flags. Anyone know where I might find them?

Specifically, there's a Korean style of Post-It Flag (item #683-9KP) that is only 1/4" wide, rather than the 1/2" that is the norm for American flags. Does anyone know where I might find this (or a similar) product in the US? I'm trying to avoid large shipping charges/find a local source. Thanks!

I swear I've seen this all over, at Office Depot or the like. Alternately, I just get a post-it note pad and cut it into strips if I need flags.

CVS carries them. I just bought a bunch - they were $3.99 for a pack with five or six different colors.

Any local office supply store (office depot/office max/staples) should have this.

Ruki, were those the 1/4" wide ones? My girlfriend is looking for these, and we have only been able to find flags that are 1/2" wide. She's particular about the width of her bookmarks.

If she'll settle for 3/8" (i.e. split the difference), you might try these. The ones she is looking for are, apparently, 6mm in width rather than 1/4" in case that helps.

The smallest (US) ones appear to be the Flag Pen refills - they're 3/8", though.

I hate suggesting this because the .com site is an abomination but Muji do a "Page marker thin" that are really useful.

Stateside, they're only in New York but you can order online (£1.95 per pack of 10, no idea what the $ cost will be, sorry).

Ack, I'm sorry. My sense of scale is off. These are the half inch ones - they just seemed so much smaller to be because I had been using inch flags before. Sorry again.

Here's 3/16", they're a tad smaller than 1/4". If you look at the main site, they come in stripes and a wide range of colors (more than the 3M ones you showed).
