@chrisaldrich Prob wouldn't work for your use since the paper stock, but Post-its come in 4x6 portrait (usu w/lined) gummed into a pad. Issue is post-its are usu lightweight stock - closer to 80#text (ordinary copier stock: 125gsm) and what we call cardstock is typically 65#card or thicker (175gsm+).
@econproph Thanks! It’s not only the thickness, but also the fact that they stick together front to back. I have used these in the past like a faux-whiteboard on walls, which is great by the way, and then stuck them to index cards for filing/later use, but for day to day use the sticky backs is an additional fiddly bit that’s probably worse than the stock issue.

  1. @chrisaldrich Oh! I misunderstood the “gummy” reference. Sorry, long day. Also I’m pulling on my background in paper distribution to printers industry background decades ago. Probably any small print shop can do that for you – commerical printer or internal. It’s just a stack of cards (if pre-cut) or guillotine cut the stack from what’s likely scrap stock, then end glued into a pad. Ordinary stuff – or at least it was 20 yrs ago when I researched ’em.
