The Swingline travel stapler is an ideal stapler for when you need to staple things on-the-go or when you simply don't need to staple that many things. This travel stapler comes in a variety of different colors, which you can coordinate easily with your other office supplies. The stapler uses mini-staples instead of standard size, which I guess could be a drawback but they are readily available just as much as regular staples. The thing itself is really tiny, which is ideal. It also is pretty durable. I have had the same one for three years and it has survived many punishing travails inside my messenger bag. The only problem is that I have lost the thing multiple times, but that's the cost of it being so small. It's cheap, it's small, and it really does the job -- I must recommend it whole-heartedly.
