Review: Swingline SmartTouch Stapler & Swingline Premium Chisel Point Staples

Grandma Bonnie's Closet has been given the opportunity to review some office supplies from Shoplet.com. Two of the products are a Swingline SmartTouch Stapler & Swingline Premium Chisel Point Staples. I was very excited to see the Swingline SmartTouch Stapler for the first time. The stapler is shaped ergonomically and comfortable to hold.  It has rubber grips on the top and bottom making it easy to hold while stapling many pages. The Swingline SmartTouch Stapler is made to be strong and jam-resistant while only requiring a light touch to staple. This stapler can handle up to 25 pages at a time with very little effort. 

What did I like most about the product?
I really liked how easy it was to load. There is a button at the back of the stapler. Press the button and pull out the tray at the front, load a line of staples in the tray and push the tray in. You are ready to go. With other traditional staplers I have always had a hard time loading staples from the top loaders. I get them loaded and squeeze the stapler shut and always get a jammed staple in the opening. With the Swingline SmartTouch Stapler I have not had a jamming problem. 

Along with the stapler I am reviewing the Swingline Premium Chisel Point Staples. The first thing I noticed different about the staples was the packaging they came in. They are package in a sturdy plastic container that is easy to open. The box contained 5,000 staples with 210 in each strip. When I removed a strip from the container they felt sturdy and did not fall apart while I was loading them. 

What did I like about this product?
I really like the reusable storage container the Swingline Premium Chisel Point Staples came in. The container is not a cardboard carton that will fall apart in your desk drawer after storing for weeks. Have you ever had to search around in your drawer for loose staples because the staple box fell apart? This container solves that problem! 
You can find these products and more like this at Shoplet.com.

  1. Every time I see a swingline stapler I think of the movie Office Space.

  23. Great review. I'm going to check out their website. I really need a stapler for home to keep things more organized.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Thanks for the review! I love that this stapler can handle 25 pages at once. And that's a unique way to load the staples, but it's great. Can't believe it wasn't thought of sooner.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Thanks for the review, Staplers hate me, I use paper clips now

    ReplyDelete

  36. A stapler is one of those items not needed until something needs to be organized and in one piece to go to the boss.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I LOVE that it can staple so many papers together with ease. I absolutely hate when i staple too many and the stapler gets jammed

    ReplyDelete
  38. I always have that problem of jammed staples too! This looks like a great stapler to try to fix that problem. I for one hate finding staples on the floor , especially on bare feet! ouch!!! Yep gotta try this stapler!

    ReplyDelete

  59. These sound great - I wonder (hope) that they'll work in an electric stapler, which is what I use at work and which loves to get jammed up!

    ReplyDelete
  60. Great review, I've always liked the Swingline brand staplers. I'm like a few of your readers puts me in the mind of office space.

  67. Great review and I so agree with you about loading staplers. Why did they make them so difficult and clumsy? I have an older, gray, heavy, swingline and it's a pain. I'm sure they have improved their product in the last 20+ years ago. LOL
    One thing about it, it doesn't break (or hasn't yet)

  69. Great review. I should look into getting one, then I wouldn't have to go hunting for "my" stapler everytime my husband takes it. I'll just give him "my" old stapler and get a NEW one. Sounds good to me. :)

  72. Thank you for the review. A stapler that works! Awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  73. The one good thing is, that even though technology has changed the way we do things, staplers have stayed the same, and are still very useful, whether at work, home, school, or just about anywhere.

    ReplyDelete
  74. It's good to see even basic items get updated and made easier.

    ReplyDelete
  75. Oh my gosh, this stapler looks fantastic! It would definitely come in handy when sorting and stapling all my coupons!

  88. I haven't used a stapler in forever! And I always had the problem of the staple getting all stuck after I punched it down.

    But here shortly I'm going to have to get some office supplies (starting back school) and a stapler will be on my list. I'm going to check this one out!

    Thank you for the review!!

  89. I used to work in an optometrist office with paper charts for patients. Swingline staplers were a must for stapling through patient records. We have some that went between the 1960s-2011!

    ReplyDelete
  104. I wonder if that model stapler comes in red.
