EDM #130 - Draw School Supplies
Although I am attracted to school supplies, I haven't needed any in decades. This is a recent stapler purchase that should be considered an art supply.
My regular staplers weren't strong enough to control on gatorboard, and I didn't want to use my heavy-duty stapler, so I tried this PaperPro stapler. It's supposed to work with a light finger touch and easily staple 20 sheets at a time.
It's perfect for stretching watercolor paper on gatorboard! It has so much more power than a regular stapler, and it's a delight to use. It uses the same staples as a regular stapler. I already have three or four boxes of 1,000 staples each stashed away.
It can be stored horizontally like a regular stapler or vertically as shown. The vertical position is nice because it takes up less space.
The only minor problem is that when I open it wide to use the stapler on the gatorboard, it thinks I'm opening it to refill the staples, so I must open it with care and close the staples holder section. No big deal.
