We buy ONLY Swingline staplers. One: because we have had them for years...like over 10 years! We started this company in 1988 and I have been in the office since 1996. There are two staplers in the office we still use!! And any staplers we have purchased recently (which, unfortunately don't seem to last as long anymore) the company quickly replaces with their warranty. So we will never be lacking in working staplers as long as we continue to purchase Swingline! And we will!
I bought an alternate brand of staples than Swingline's at first because I didn't need the large box offered as a minimum. The stapler was HUGE disappointment w/ jams and wasted staples. Swingline even sent me a replacement stapler at no cost as it seemed to be defective stapler issue. When problem still persisted w/ new stapler, I bought the Swingline staple brand and issue went away immediately. Bottom line, don't pinch pennies w/ alt brand staples.
I do genealogy for both sides of the family. I depend on my Swingline heavy duty stapler to keep all my information in order. I print genealogies for all the kids, as they marry, so they can keep track of their families. I staple bind these with my Swingline. It has been so reliable, easy to use, easy to refill, and relatively problem free. When you need to depend on something, depend on Swingline!
This is a very nice heavy duty stapler, we use these staplers for large corporate closing and found they can handle the job. Easy to clear if jamms, Easy loading. Price is alright. if you need service Swingline is easy to work with.
