Fill Our Staplers Day is an annual American holiday celebrating stapler refills. These devices play a large role in corporate offices around the world. When there are a lot of sheets of paper and they need to be connected, the stapler always comes to the rescue! With this device you can quickly staple the sheets so they don’t get lost. The holiday is celebrated annually on the second Monday of March.
Paper clips were invented back in the 18th century. We owe the appearance of the stapler to Louis the Fifteenth. He needed to staple various documents, and the first stapler was made for him. Over time, the design of the device has been continually refined to make it as convenient as possible.
The modern stapler appeared in the 1930s. After that time, almost no changes were made to the design of the device. It’s accepted that Fill Our Staplers Day was created by McGraw-Hill to fill the 2013 calendar of events. Since then, we have celebrated this holiday every year, remembering the history of the stapler and rejoicing at how much this device has made office work easier.
- Staplers began appearing in U.S. offices around 1914.
- It is believed that the ancestor of the paper stapler was a device for stapling brass sheets, patented by D. McGill in 1866.
- Initially, one staple was inserted into the stapler.
