In the world of staplers the Swingline 747 Classic Stapler has established a dominance that no other stapler has even presumed to challenge. Made in the USA, this stapler is more American than apple pie! Here is a list of functions the 747 has to offer: 1. Stapling In addition to this basic feature, there is advance tacking function that should only be utilized by advance stapler users. In my experience, the 20 sheet paper limit is a good rule to follow but in extreme situations I have stapled up to 21 sheets. (note: Swingline is not responsible for damage to your stapler if exceeding the maximum 20 sheet paper limit). This stapler is a must have for all stapling enthusiasts. Impress your coworkers when they see you stapling with this, the Cadillac of staplers. For the ultimate stapling experience use only Swingline staples and Swingline approved accessories. Happy stapling!

I purchased a Swingline 711 (mini desk) many years ago and it still works - after a big bump. This stapler recommends use of "standard staples". I have a half a box of Swingline SF-15 staples and the 711 staples once and then fails to feed the next staple. The staples do not slide forward easily, even though the spring seems to have sufficient tension. I don't recall having this problem before. I thought it was too old so I bought a new Swingline 747 Classic today. This stapler recommends the use of SF-4 staples. Since I already have the SF-15 staples I used it again but have the same feeding issue, except the staples seem to fit tighter over the staple slide feed and do not slide as easily as in the 711! Penetration of the sheets is not the issue - feeding the next staple is the issue. Is there a difference between the SF-4 and SF-15 staples? Are the SF-15 staples too old? Will use of the SF-4 staples resolve my issue?

Horrible Stapler

By Cmurr790

from Boston, MA, USA

Comments about Swingline Classic 747 Desktop Stapler:

I have used the Swingline Classic stapler for about a year and it suddenly jammed on me. I tried everything I could, but the part holding the staples is firmly stuck in the top of the stapler and won't come out. I have never had any problems with any other stapler, but I will never use Swingline again after this.

One hit wonder

By Rob747

from Milwaukee, WI, USA

Comments about Swingline Classic 747 Desktop Stapler:

My 747 will staple once. The cap then needs to be lifted to staple again. Repeat, Repeat, Repeat. A real treat at tax time! I even purchased new staples (even though genuine Swingline staples came with original purchase), no relief. The stapler is between one and two years old.

Best Stapler on the market

By janetnels

Comments about Swingline Classic 747 Desktop Stapler:

I've been using the same Swingline 747 Classic stapler for too many years to remember. Swingline makes the best staplers on the market. The only brand to buy.

Best Stapler ever made

By Dano

from Georgia, USA

Comments about Swingline Classic 747 Desktop Stapler:

My 747 is at least 25 - 30 years old and it is still going strong. It has been dropped and taken a beating over the years, yet it still works like a champ. The only time it has ever jammed up was when we tried to use some off brand staples from China that would not work in any stapler in the office. This is a quality product built in America.

Two Defective Staplers

By SmartSquad

from Amherst, NY, USA

Comments about Swingline Classic 747 Desktop Stapler:

We bought two new staplers and within a few days of our purchase the staplers will no longer staple more than once. If the stapler top is open then closed it will staple once, but then will not reset the hinge to staple again. There are no jammed staples and both staplers have the same problem.

By far the best stapler I have ever owned (actually have 2)

By JohnIn

from Indiana

Comments about Swingline Classic 747 Desktop Stapler:

I had some cheap staplers before and they would constantly jam and would be hard to push sometimes. There were times they would not put a staple in at all (it would just be a blank shot). I love this stapler and actually have one in the office and one in the living room. Works GREAT!

Cartridge Comparison Guide
  • Cartridge Types
  • Ink & Toner Basics
  • Number of Pages & Shelf Life
Cartridge Type
Genuine or OEM (Original) Cartridges Remanufactured Cartridges Compatible Cartridges
Description OEM stands for original equipment manufacturer, meaning the cartridge was made by the same company that made your printer. Original brand cartridges are very reliable and sometimes the only option if your printer is new to market or uncommon. Remanufactured ink is a genuine brand cartridge that has gone through one cycle of use. After use, the cartridge is recycled, acquired by a remanufacturing facility and put through a rigorous professional refurbishing process. During the refurbishing process the cartridge is disassembled, thoroughly cleaned and tested for quality. It's then carefully refilled, tested again and brought back to life. Buying remanufactured prevents one less cartridge from ending up in a landfill. A compatible cartridge is a brand new ink cartridge built by a manufacturer other than your printer. It's like buying the generic version of the genuine brand. Most are uniquely designed to differentiate from genuine cartridges. Despite any structural difference you may notice, the cartridge will still fit in your machine and print a full yield, just like the original brand.
Price Factors Many printer manufacturers follow the razor-and-blades business model which may result in higher priced genuine cartridges. Remanufactured ink is much cheaper than the original brand ink. It's far more cost effective to refurbish a previously used cartridge than create a new OEM from scratch. Compatible ink is much cheaper than the original brand. Compatible suppliers don't have to worry about the additional costs that hinder OEMs like new printers or firmware, which lets them keep prices low.
Quality Original cartridges work extremely well and are covered under a warranty by the printer manufacturer High quality remanufactured ink will match the quality of the original, but not all remanufactured ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results. High quality compatible ink will match the quality of the original, but not all compatible ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results.
What's the difference between ink and toner cartridges?
Ink Cartridges Toner Cartridges
Printer Type Work with inkjet printers Work with laser printers
Material Liquid ink Dry powder
How it works Inkjet printers use a series of nozzles that spray tiny drops of ink directly on the print suface Laser toner printers use static electricity and heat to bond dry toner powder to a page
Commonly used by Casual home users, small business and photographers Large businesses and schools
Number of Pages You Can Print A cartridge's page yield is the estimated number of pages you can print. Page yield is based on 5% page coverage. This means that the quoted page yield is based upon printed pages where only 5% of the page has been imprinted with ink. For example, a short memo has approximately 5% coverage. If you have a cartridge that has a yield of 500 pages, it can print 500 pages of that short memo. If you are printing letters, photos or graphics, your coverage will vary greatly and your page yield will drop significantly.
Cartridge Warranty and Shelf Life Most ink and toner cartridges include a warranty or "best by" date on their box. Remanufactured and compatible ink cartridges can last 12-18 months unopened, and toner cartridges can last up to 3 years.
Cartridge Care and Storage Only open a cartridge when you need it. Opened cartridges will eventually dry out, especially if the protective tape or clip has been removed. If you have an open ink cartridge around and would like to try and prevent it from drying out, place it nozzle side up in a plastic airtight tub. If your cartridge came with protective tape or a clip reapply both before storing. Place a damp cloth or paper towel in the tub, next to the cartridge and keep it stored in a cool, dark place.
