This stapler is better than the one you’re using now because papers bound with it lie much flatter. When using a traditional ‘bubble” stapler, a stack of stapled documents will quickly begin to be higher in the corner where the staple is. Because the Max staple is flat the stack lies flatter, and takes up less space. It does this using commodity staples, and after six years of use I find that it jams less than other staplers I’ve used.
