Swingline® Announces This Year's Performance Rewards Grand Prize Winner

LINCOLNSHIRE, Ill., (June 13, 2007) – Swingline® today announced that Donald Ephraim, 50, from Bay Shore, New York, was selected as this year's winner of the Swingline Performance Rewards Sweepstakes.

The sweepstakes celebrated the launch of the new Swingline® Optima™ PowerEase™ stapler, which helps secure important documents, especially financial records during the busy tax season and paperwork in the field. In conjunction with major office superstore retailers and independent office supply distributors, the five-month promotion featured more than 550,000 entries across the country for a chance to win a prize of a lifetime.

Ephraim is a Heating Ventilation Air Conditioning technician who has used Swingline staplers his entire life. “This money will allow me to do some things I would not have done otherwise, such as replacing some of the windows in my house and setting some money aside for a nice vacation,” said Ephraim. “Performance Rewards to me means something that works!”

The Grand Prize was a $100,000 savings bond, redeemable for $25,000 cash. Other prizes include five first prizes of a $1,000 savings bond and 10 second prizes of a $500 savings bond.

"ACCO Brands is thrilled to reward winners of the annual tax season sweepstakes,” said Jeff Ackerberg, president of the ACCO Brands' Workspace Tools business and the Swingline Brand. “By introducing consumers to the efficient and effective ways that Swingline can help them prepare for tax season, such as high-performing stapling and punching tools, we hope to alleviate tax season stress and help them plan financially for their future.”

The Swingline brand is aligned with performance, and Optima staplers have quickly become the popular choice for office professionals, administrative assistants, small business owners and others who rely on their staplers for jam-free performance, innovative product features and ergonomic comfort. Consumers have applauded the unique design and feel of the product.

The new Swingline Optima PowerEase Stapler and lightweight plastic Swingline PowerEase Stapler take stapling to a new level of performance and ease. Their reduced force technology reduces operating force by up to 70 percent, taking the frustration out of stapling. Loading staples is also easier with the addition of the innovative QuickLoad™ magazine system, which loads at the front of the stapler.
