Printing onto Post-its from Excel

I'm doing an affinity diagram exercise, and I want to avoid hand-writing individual observations onto post-its. Does anyone have an Excel spreadsheet template that can help me transfer data onto 3" x 3" post-its that I can output from a laser printer? Thanks!

Designing for change (was: JOB: Interaction designer for GoDaddy.com)

Schwab.com has done a pretty good job of managing change on their site. They
