I’m looking to buy a really good desktop stapler, and am finding myself overwhelmed by the choices at the local office supply store (e.g. vertical, reduced-effort, “One Touch” &c. &c). I don’t want a big industrial hunk of metal that can perforate 200 pages, just a tidy design that can handle 20 pages without ever bending a staple the wrong way.
Imposing appearances and novel designs are preferred. The stapler must project the impression that its owner is a bit vain, and probably needs to get his priorities straightened out. Any ideas?
Also, while we are on the subject, I would really appreciate any useful advice regarding the purchase of an eraser. I would like the general style to say something along the lines of ‘if you demonstrate even the slightest imperfection, the owner of this product will not hesitate to wipe you clean out of existence!’.
I have the all-metal Swingline 94-02. Not only does it effectively put tiny metal wires through paper, it weighs about 14 pounds and has sharp edges. I can pistol-whip the UPS guy, drag his unconscious body behind the dumpster and remove his wallet before he ever knows what hit him and before my staff starts thinking, “Wow, she’s on a long restroom break.”
