Which Copier Staple
Staple Cartridges for Photocopiers
Important – NO manufacturers make their own staples they are all outsourced and merely branded by manufacturers as their own (to the best of our knowledge).
In fact there are only about 15 different size of staples which are cross compatible over many brands, yes a Canon staple may fit a Konica Minolta finisher or a Toshiba or Sharp may fit a XEROX model and vice versa.
People often make a huge mistake when choosing the right staple for their photocopier, they assume that they use the photocopier make and model number, this is WRONG!
Photocopiers are fitted with an accessory, originally it was easy they were called a stapler unit but as functionality has improved, they are now called:
- Staple finishers
- Sorter Staplers
- Booklet makers
- Saddle Finishers
All these finishers need staples to work, usually they will come in multiple pack of up to 3 staple cartridges, some photocopier staples units especially saddle stitch and booklet finishers will take 2 different size staples
With approximately, 30 brands of photocopier, printer manufacturers some branding the same product under different names, its estimated that there are over 10,000 models of MFP machines which can perform a staple function when fitted with one of approx. 500 finishers options.
Our search references should make it easy for you to find the right one.
