  • 1.
  • 2. People are particular about their staplers
    (just ask Milton)
  • 3. Background of the stapler
    Previously known as the “fastener” or the “Hotchkiss” the name Stapler wasn’t used till 1909
    1914 staplers were used in offices, 1 for 500 employees and the staplers were either loose or wrapped in paper
    Staples were not glued together until 1923
    Swingline revolutionized the stapler with its top loading design in the 1930’s
  • 4. Stapler Etiquette
    What not to do:
    remove a stapler from its designated home
    jam the stapler (you will be hated by all)
    leave the stapler empty
    staple a document together more than once
    borrow someone’s stapler and not return it

  • 9. Target: College Students
    Everyone needs a stapler, especially students. With recent budget cuts colleges are having to cut back on everything including staplers in common areas. Though to some this may seem a nominal tool some professors will refuse assignments if they are not stapled making it a necessity for a successful college life.
