Paper clips

From: Gregor Trinkaus-Randall <gtrinkaus>

Ann Pat Smith posted an inquiry regarding paper clips.  One of the
problems that plastiklips have generally is that they tend to crimp
the paper on which they are used.  I see two options, although I
personally do not know the makeup of the second one so I have
concerns about it.  The first one is to use stainless steel clips
with a piece of alkaline paper folded over the top of the papers and
under the paper clip.  The other, of which I am uncertain, is the
rubber/plastic covered metal clips.  With this option I would be a
bit wary until we were able to learn more.
