As a high school teacher I stand by the use of the Classic 747 Stapler. An excellent stapler that can last a long time so long as the students respect and use the stapler it was designed for. I am a "jack of all trades" in my school and teachers often send their staplers to my classroom for service. They come to my room simply because of student abuse. Missing or stretched springs. Jammed because students bang the stapler several times with or without paper. If used properly they will not get stuck with several staples. The 747 stapler on my desk is over 20-years old. The plastic name plate broke off years ago when the stapler was dropped on to the floor by a student. Missing the name plate .... no problem it still staples as well as the first day I got it.

I used a US made 747 in my tax business for many years. It was extremely reliable, with whatever kind of staples were available, so when it developed legs, a new (imported) 747 replaced it. After only a couple of seasons' use, the new one started jamming every few staples, even with the recommended S.F. 4 staples. In frustration I went shopping and came home with another brand which eats all kinds of staples, and has served for several seasons without problems. I wish Swingline still made the 747 to work the way their old US made models did!

Swingline Staplers are Designed to fail

By MyNicknameIsntGoodEnough

from Portland, OR, USA

Comments about Swingline 747 Classic Desk Staplers:

I can't tell you how many times I've had this product fail in the exact same way. There is a hinge bolt that attaches the top section to the bottom section. This bolt ALWAYS fails - then the top section will misalign with the bottom section resulting in frustration to the operator. Well I've had enough. This standard office product will never again adorn my desk.

The Classic Stapler lasts and lasts

Comments about Swingline 747 Classic Desk Staplers:

I've had my steel gray Classic Stapler for more years than I can count. It was originally retrieved from a trash can, covered in purple mimeograph ink (told you it's been around a long time!). Once I cleaned it up and put in some Swingline staples, it worked like a champ, and has continued to do so. It takes a lickin' and keeps on staplin'.

A Classic Stapler

By ThomasFlorida

Comments about Swingline 747 Classic Desk Staplers:

I was looking for a replacement stapler like the one that I use to use back in the day and this Swingline® 747® Classic Stapler fit the bill. This is such a great durable device. It is very easy to handle and to load the staples and does the job with ease. It has a nice weight to it so it is stable feeling in your hand. Just a beautiful classic design.

I used this particular model at my office for years and found it very reliable. When my boss retired earlier this year, I wish I had been like the movie Office Space and had taken my stapler home with me,

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.
