Sep 06, 2017

The traditional way of binding books is to sew the pages together according to "sticking Code", which is a rather complicated process, which is simple for skilled bookbinding workers, but it may be difficult to do by a machine. Therefore, bookbinding workers who want to improve their working speed, especially when producing brochures and magazines that are often asked to do so, are trying to find a way to staple a piece of curved wire.

1869, Boston, Massachusetts, Thomas Briggs invented a machine to act in this position, he set up a manufacturing and sales of the machine "Boston wire binding machine company, his machine wire cut off and make it bent into U shape, and then use it to nail the pages, then bend the book will be properly fixed.

Briggs's original stapler is quite complicated because it has so many steps to operate on. As a result, he used a manufacturing process in 1894, which first rolled and bent the wire and made a string of "U" staples. These nails can be fitted into a much simpler machine, which can be embedded in paper, the machine is the prototype of today's stapler.

Early "U" nails are wrapped in paper, or individually packed into a stapler. The use of stapler has become increasingly popular in the the 1920s, when the U-shaped nails have been glued to the market.
