One of the several wire fasteners used in SADDLE STITCHING and
pamphlets, periodical issues, and the like.
Staples for this type of work are of two general
types: those already formed and fed automatically,
and a continuous roll of wire that is snipped off,
formed into a staple, and clinched. Round wire
staples are used for saddle stitching, and flat
wire staples for side stitching. (234 )
