STAPLERWhen we were cleaning out my parents’ house a couple of years ago, we found something like 37 staplers. We kept count as we were amused there were so many. I remember a childhood where my mother’s stapler was something that was not touched without permission. We found that stapler and its two dozen plus siblings and used it as an illustration of how my parents had a little bit of the hoarding gene within them.

I will admit that I chose one of the staplers to keep, and I do use it from time to time. However, the stapler I kept, and none of the other staplers found in the house, are nearly as cool as the colorful staplers from Poppin.

About Poppin: “Poppin believes you should be able to surround yourself with objects of beauty everywhere you go and in everything that you do. Whether you are making grocery lists, taking notes at the latest TED conference, or pitching the next big account, you should be able to do it with a smile and style. This is why we exist. Poppin is chock-full of people with a crazy-passion for this stuff. We love tape dispensers, file cabinets, and the way a new notebook sounds (and smells) when you turn the cover for the first time. What we don’t love is the selection out there. Why should the tools-of-the-trade be dressed up in drab and dreary? Why does the customer experience always have to be lousy? So, we decided to change the way people work.”
