Letter openers help ease the process of opening letters. This can be a tiresome exercise in high-traffic offices that receive lots of mail and sealed documents. Speeding up the process helps reduce the response time and enhances delivery to the appropriate desks and persons. Staples carries a wide selection of letter openers that come in different designs, materials, colors, and sizes.

Electric or manual styles
Manual letter openers include simple handheld designs with blades that slide into the edges of envelopes easily to make single cuts. These designs offer various advantages. They create a single cut at the furthest edge of the envelope, protecting the stamps from any damage. This is beneficial for stamp collectors. They leave details such as the return address undamaged and still visible. This design is most effective in small offices where incoming mail is not plentiful.

Electric letter openers come in two designs. Some designs require manual feeding of one letter at a time, while others can take up letters in bulk. Electric models facilitate faster processes. They may damage details, such as stamps and contents of envelopes, if not handled carefully. Some designs allow users to adjust the settings to cater to the different types, thickness, and size of mail that comes into an office.

Type of blades
Different designs come with varying blades. Some letter openers come with either a straight, curved, or recessed blade. Designs that have a recessed blade offer more grip on the letter's surface and provide fast smooth cuts. With these designs, the blade is sometimes durable plastic. This adds another advantage as the blade never rusts. Handheld designs mostly come with a slim, straight, and blunt blade. Curved blades offer an added security measure. By having the blade curved or recessed, letter openers are safe from nicking and cutting the user or the storage space.

Consider style and design
Letter openers come in various styles, designs, colors, and materials. Apart from being functional devices in the office, they can also serve as stylish statement pieces. Some designs have quality wood handles with delicate engraving and finishes, while some feature polished stainless steel, silver-plated, or other plating to give an elegant feel. Opt for designs and colors that match the office decor.

Should you sharpen a letter opener?
Most letter openers come with an efficient blade whose design promises efficiency and does not require sharpening. Some designs allow users to sharpen the blades with a whetstone or blade sharpening device if the blade is dull and slow.

Are these items sold in packs?
Letter openers come in a variety of packages. Some brands offer individual pieces, while others have multiple pieces in packs. The smaller designs sometimes come in multiples.

Are there unique designs?
Some designs have more aesthetic appeal than functionality. These serve best as gifts or collector's items. Some designs come engraved with a message and are part of heirloom items, while others feature as little swords paying homage to films or books.
