When you think of staplers, you would probably think of the small metal hook holding your papers together.

But there are many cons to using metal staplers:

  • It can get jammed and you have to spend time trying to fix it
  • You may have forgotten to refill your stapler bullets and if you didn’t bring extra, you can’t use your stapler
  • Bringing around a box of stapler bullets takes up extra space in your pencil case
  • Buying stapler bullets is an extra cost
  • Using stapler bullets every time you stapler is wasteful and not eco-friendly

The solution? Bullet-free staplers! 

It cuts out a hole in your papers and fits the cut-out into a small slit, so your papers are holding themselves together on their own, with no refills of other materials needed.

The good news is that now, carrying a pair of scissors with you everywhere you go is so convenient. There are compact scissors that are so small that they can fit into your hand, and are even smaller than your regular pens!
