I love the movie Office Space so much that I have an autographed Office Space movie poster hanging in my office. When Swingline released their collector’s edition Rio red stapler in 2002 I had to have one, but they weren’t very easy to find. I thought we owed it to Office Space fans to correct this situation and we set about making the red stapler easier to find on the Web. I think we succeeded as this week BuyOnlineNow passed a milestone; we shipped our 10,000th red stapler! I think Milton would be proud.

I should introduce myself; I’m Bob Herman, the President and founder of BuyOnlineNow. I’ll be a regular contributor here, along with other members of our company. We think office products are pretty interesting (we’re a little weird I guess) and hope you’ll find something interesting, amusing or useful here.
