The iconic red stapler coveted by
Milton was created for the film by the prop
department. They needed a bright enough color to be seen on film and chose red.
After the film was released, Swingline began to receive requests from customers
for red staplers. Having stopped offering red a number of years before, they
made the decision to start offering the color once more.
