HOLLY SPRINGS, NC- OFM, a leading office and school furniture manufacturer, distributor, and wholesaler, together with Swingline, the makers of the iconic Red Swingline Stapler, have launched the Hands Off My Stapler Contest.

“This is a fun contest for people to share the creative ways they keep their stapler at their desk,” said Blake Zalcberg, co-founder and chief executive officer of OFM. “We know that many office workers go to great lengths to protect their stapler and we can’t wait to see how far some people actually go.”

To enter, contestants must email a photo in jpeg format to stapler@ofminc.com with a short description of how they make sure their stapler stays at their desk—whether it’s attaching it to a chain made out of rubber bands and paper clips, writing their name on it with white correction fluid, or some other creative idea. All entries must be submitted by 11:59 p.m. on September 30, 2012, to be eligible to win.

All contestants must “like” OFM and Swingline on Facebook to be eligible to win at www.facebook.com/ofminc and www.facebook.com/swinglinered. Photos submitted will be posted on OFM’s Facebook page, although the number of likes a photo receives does not affect its chances of winning.
