Old paper welders were small metal presses that essentially embossed two or three pieces of paper together — no staples or paperclips needed. Here’s a look back at these handy old-fashioned silver-toned office desk accessories!

Wonderful Paper Welder

Papers are fastened together by simple pressure of hand on lever of Paper Welder. One press of the handle welds papers together. The weld is as strong as the strength of the paper itself.

A definite saving in money because there are no metallic fasteners to buy. It costs nothing to push down the handle. The Paper Welder is precision built, neat, smart appearing, polished chrome plate, and should last indefinitely.
