Swingline SmartTouch Stapler and Chisel Point Staples Review


Shoplet.com  is an Office Supply company that offers a whole range of products to keep your business productive and running smoothly.   They even have furniture and break room supplies.   I am excited to be a new member of the Shoplet Office Supplies Blogger Program because I do office work for a living and am always on the lookout for products that will make my job a little easier.


A few days ago Shoplet sent me the Swingline SmartTouch Stapler along with a box of Swingline Premium Chisel Point Staples to try out and tell you about.  The stapler came at just the right time because I was just wrapping up a big freelance project I’d been working on and all the backup work needed to be stapled together and filed.  This allowed me to give it a good test run.



The Swingline SmartTouch Stapler is an ergonomically designed stapler designed to fit in the hand easily and require less effort to use.  It is capable of going through up to 25 sheets of standard paper and features a quick load staple access.   The stapler is built with a flat bottom and rubber hand grips.  The two-toned black/grey color adds a stylish look.    The Swingline Chisel Point Staples are engineered to give superior paper penetration with minimal jamming.   They even carry a 100% performance guarantee.   These ¼ inch staples have a 25 sheet paper capacity and come in a strip of 210 and fit all standard use staplers and are contained in a reusable plastic storage case.


I really liked both products.  My favorite feature for the stapler was the loading feature.  I love how you just  lightly press the grey button on the back and the staple tray pops out.  In my job it seems like the staples always run out at the worst possible time – when you are rushing to get something done.  This feature really does make it fast and easy.   The stapler fit in my hand really well and the staples went in nice a smooth, without that “clunk” – “pop” sound that I’m used to.  It reminded me a little bit of how an electric stapler works – quiet, precise and fast!   The only thing I might change about this stapler is the size.  It is fairly long and desk space is pretty cramped in my home office.   However, the performance makes up for this shortcoming and it certainly would not stop me from purchasing or using it.


The staples come in a high quality plastic box with a slide out lid.   Staples tend to last a while in both my physical and home offices, so I was happy to see that the box would hold up to being shuffled around in the drawer a lot.  The staples themselves are of good quality as well.   I understand why Swingline gives them a performance guarantee because I received no jamming at all, even when I tried to put it through 20 sheets.


Both products receive my Office Manager vote of approval for design and use.  I highly recommend that you check out the Shoplet Website and take a look around.  Their prices are reasonable and they offer free shipping for all orders of $45 or more and there is sure to be something there you can use.
