Scissors

Scissors are necessary tools for homes, offices and schools. They have different handles, blades, tips and sizes for cutting paper, fabric, tape and envelopes. Staples carries many options in single and multiple packs.

Choosing the Right Scissors
For general purposes such as cutting construction paper for school projects or wrapping paper for presents, all-purpose scissors are an excellent choice. They can also cut through most fabrics including leather and twine. General purpose shears can slice through up to two layers of cardboard. Use all-purpose models to cut up boxes for recycling purposes or cut through a variety of materials while scrapbooking.

If you are using them strictly for crafts, crafting shears are a good choice. For crafts that involve a lot of cutting such as trimming multiple patterns for quilts, consider an electric pair. These cutting tools run on rechargeable batteries and can shear through paper, leather, cardboard and thin metals.

Scissors for schools and children have safety features for young and inexperienced cutters to prevent injuries. They have short, small rounded handles and the blades are 5 inches in length or less for small hands. Kid's shears don't have a point. Instead, they have round, plastic coated ends and safety edge blades that can only cut through paper.

Finding Scissor Handles that are a Comfortable Fit
Choose a style with comfortable, well-fitting handles. Shears are available with left-handed, right-handed and ambidextrous handles. For general office and school use, consider ambidextrous options for multiple users. Handles come in stainless steel, plastic, plastic covering stainless steel and rubber. Choose between bent handles for more comfort while cutting on flat surfaces, and straight ones that allow more movability while cutting intricate patterns.

How do you Choose Scissors' Blades?
Most blades are made of stainless steel and vary in length between 5 inches and 9 inches. Shorter options allow for more control while cutting and weigh less, putting less stress on your body during use. Longer blades are useful for reducing the cutting time on long pieces of paper or fabric.

Do you Need Non-stick Scissors?
For office scissors that cut tape, envelopes and other surfaces with adhesives, non-stick shears are a good choice. This feature non-stick coatings that protect the blade from sticky substances that can cause uneven cutting and dull the blades after multiple uses.

How do you Maintain Scissors?
To properly care for shears, wipe them down with a dry washcloth after cutting any surface that leaves a residue, such as a tape. Even non-stick blades should be wiped down before storing to prevent damage to the blade. For tough to remove spots, use a light soap and thoroughly dry them before storing in a dry location.

Stainless steel will rust when exposed to moisture. To keep shears cutting smoothly, apply a small amount of oil to the pivot. The pivot is the screw that holds the two blades together. If the blades are loose, you can tighten the screw with any flathead screwdriver after cleaning away any dirt and debris that will reduce the blades effectiveness.
