Welcome to MyBinding video. This is an introduction to what staples you should buy. When using a standard stapler, do you purchase premium staples or standard ones? Well in the end, it doesn’t matter. It can get confusing when there are different kinds of staples, like the S.F 4 and the S.F. 3. They have the same type of premium staple, simply in different strip lengths. With the Swingline staples, you’ll see a lot of different abbreviations and numbers on them. This acts more like a part number to help you match which staples you should use but sometimes one stapler can use multiples of the part numbers. As a rule of thumb, if you’re looking for staples for a normal office stapler, look for the word standard or premium in the staple description. The staples should have a ¼” leg length and they usually have 210 staples at a full size strip and make sure not to use staples that say heavy duty or use other descriptives as they simply won’t work unless your stapler specifically asks for them. So now the question is are premium staples better than standard? In my first test, I tried to jam one of Swingline’s cheapest staplers. I started with standard. It jammed about halfway through. I repeated the process with premium staples, which had similar results but results could vary per stapler. Next, I tested stapling through the maximum amount of sheets the stapler could handle. With the standard staple, several did not staple all the way through. But with the premium, results looked more promising. I even tested specialty staples to see how they held up and they compared more to the premiums. Now if you aren’t fairly sure what staples to use, first search your stapler to see if it will tell you or look at the box it comes in. There are various types of staples to look out for, all of which in the end staple your pages together. For more demos, reviews and how-to’s, go to MyBinding.com.
