DIY Booklet Stapler: 7 Steps (with Pictures)This is a problem which has vexed me for years - but no more! This is despite the facts that the staple itself has long enough arms to fit through the bundle, and that the stapler's jaw is big enough for the bundle. The problem seems to be that the staple, when forced into the thick stack, bends, rather than penetrating. The solution is really quite simple: make holes for the arms through the stack before stapling. For this, you will need a sharp implement of roughly the same diameter as the staple's arms, but much greater rigidity.
How to Staple a Booklet

It can be a pain trying to reach the spine of the booklet with an ordinary stapler, but as long as the arms of your stapler can swing apart, there are at least two ways to achieve this with household materials. If you are stapling a large quantity of booklets, or an especially thick booklet, you will probably want to save time by purchasing a specialized stapler  described below.

This magnetic hack allows you to use a plain old stapler to fasten very large pieces of paper. To get around this, the crimped connections between the base and the dispenser were drilled out. Larger holes were then drilled in both the top and bottom halves to accept a set of magnets. These were held in place temporarily with some tape while the super glue had time to set up. The magnets are responsible for aligning the staples with the die which bends them to their final shape. The whole process is shown in the video clip after the break.
