Swingline SmartTouch Compact Stapler, Reduced Effort, 25 Sheets, Black/Gray (S7066508)

I recently had to staple by hand 1,150 individual sets of papers. I needed to do it quickly and efficiently. An electric stapler would have been nice, but was 1.) too expensive and 2.) actually takes longer than manual stapling. A plain old desktop stapler was my best best to get the job done until this little beauty became available.

Over the 1,150 sets stapled I had:
Zero (0) jams.
Zero (0) messed up staples.
Zero (0) hand cramps.

Frankly, as far as stapling goes, it was a great experience!

I have one complaint, and it is minimal:

It doesn’t hold a whole “standard” length of staples. However, you can buy boxes with shorter lengths, or just snap a standard length in half. This really didn’t affect my experience with the stapler at all, but I felt it might cause some people to give the stapler 4 stars instead of 5.

I really don’t see using this as my “every day” desktop stapler. I will save it for those daunting stapling tasks that come along every few months.

Overall: 5 stars. Great stapler!
