Stapler of the Week Archive- Ace aceliner

aceliner brown plastic and chrome finish

The third example of Ace brand staplers from my collection is another addition made by my wife. A careworn, though not distressed example, this aceliner is still commercially available. An "executive" model, it is also comes in black. Vintage items were available in green, red in a similar plastic and also earlier Bakelite faux tortoise shell in a variety of colors. It's a very comfortable stapler to use both in the hand and on the desk top. The cursive name moulded on the handle and the neat detail of the brown plastic in the tab of the spring loading mechanism cheer me right up.
