It’s a necessary evil to learn the do’s and don’t’s of email exchanges. Sure, throwing out abbreviations and recognized expressions may be appropriate when sending quick texts back and forth with your best friend but, “Sure, I’ll totes finish that project later. Super swamped right now. Ttyl!”, won’t go over as well with your boss. Therefore, to help you with your etiquette, we’ve decided to compile a list of some of the most important things to remember when responding to or sending out emails.

Quality. Innovation. Reliability.

The Swingline name means products you can trust. For over 80 years we’ve helped you successfully achieve your workplace goals and move on to other projects. From staplers to trimmers and punches; from sharpeners to shredders including the revolutionary NEW Stack-and-Shred; you can depend on Swingline to help you get the job done.

A Few Words About Staplers

Staplers have been around for 300 years, and the idea is even older. But they weren’t exactly practical until the 19th century. There’s a lot more to know, and it’s fun and interesting (no cribbing for term papers, now.)

A Few Words About Us

Located in the rolling hills northwest of Chicago, Swingline made its reputation over 60 years ago as the first stapler manufacturer to let you pop open the top of the product and drop in the staples. Seriously. We’ve been making equally revolutionary developments in office products ever since. Swingline is a division of the ACCO Brands Corporation.

You don’t have to be a megaplex warehouse retailer in order to sell Swingline products. A good number of our dealers are people like–well, people like you. If our products fit into your business plan, we’d love to hear from you.
