How to choose a heavy duty stapler

Posted on January 8, 2010 by Frankye Robinson
Regularly assemble documents usy with high sheet-counts? Heavy duty staplers are the ideal solution for busy offices. There are three important factors to consider before you buy.
How many people will use the stapler?
How often do you staple documents?
How many sheets do you usually have to staple together? Heavy emphasis must be placed on "sheet capacity" when shopping for a heavy-duty stapler. "Sheet capacity" refers to how many pages a stapler can staple at one time.
