To staple or not to staple


Lantern Swinger
For anyone who reads Navy News, we've made a subtle difference to the paper as of the September edition (which should be out now): we've stapled the pages together, rather than having it loose and spilling all over the place.

We'd be interested in hearing your thoughts on whether you like it with or without (or any comments on the paper as a whole as ever).

As an avid reader of this esteemed tabloid, my observation is that due to the glossy nature of the paper, a strategically placed staple is an advantage to the reader.

Another (cheaper) option would be to print on normal newspaper or achieve a 50% saving on staples by just using one per copy & reducing the bulk postal costs.

Just a thought...

I must say that is a rather good idea, as it does get quite tiring having to keep picking up all the pages of the Navy News when they keep falling to the floor.

Thank you

Look forward to reading next months :thumright: Navy news.
No staples for me thanks. All the people in my rest home read my copy, and many of them find staples hard to deal with.
If you insist on sticking the pages together, a mint flavoured, easily digestible and non toxic gum would be preferable.

Big cheer for the staples.... fed up of holding onto the pages like a loon to stop them blowing away in the wind... (usually read outside at "work" as its the only chance i get)
If you maintained the non staple policy then the recepiant has the option to apply his/her own staples of choice. That would keep all happy.
