We’ve been helping businesses get what they need for over 25 years. And it’s all thanks to one man – and a broken printer ribbon. In 1985, when our founder Tom Stemberg wasn’t able to find a replacement printer ribbon on a holiday weekend, he came up with a way to make office supplies more accessible — and affordable. Now, Staples is about much more than paper clips and pens. And to realize our vision of becoming the world’s most trusted source for office solutions, we’ve put our trust in our associates – that’s what we call the dedicated people at the very heart of Staples.
