Have you seen the 1999 movie, Office Space? Featured in it prominently is a bright red Swingline stapler. When the movie was made, the featured stapler was actually a different stapler that was spray-painted. In 2002, due to popular request, Swingline made a similar red model, which is THIS ONE! It's still not quite the same as the one in the movie, but to celebrate the movie's 20th anniversary, they made an exact replica. In case you're curious, here's an article about the impact Office Space had on the legend of the Swingline stapler.
Swingline was founded in New York City in 1925 and is credited with inventing the first top-loading stapler, which quickly became the industry standard. Its most popular model, the 747, was introduced in 1968 and is still made to the same specs today!
Fun fact: Swingline’s founder, Jack Linsky, emigrated with his family to New York from northern Russia in 1904. They resided on the Lower East Side, which is where our shop is located, where his father was a fabric salesman and Jack worked at a stationery shop.
This stapler takes S.F. 4 staples (the standard American staple size). Note: This stapler does not come with any staples.
