I bought a long arm stapler over the weekend so I could staple my new cd (packaging was letter-size sheets folded sideways, instead of a jewel case). $40...for a stapler!? :( I considered returning it when I was done since I only needed it the one time, but it worked so nice for me, I thought it didn't deserve such a crappy payback. So I kept it.
The long arm stapler is a necessity for any self-publisher. When I worked at Kinko’s it would always magically disappear… I think the store went through three in a year.
Actually, Emi, it occurs to me that I have a long-arm stapler too--I just don't know how to refill it? If you know how to refill a long-arm stapler, feel free to borrow it anytime.
