For the first time in several years, I am actually mailing a printed script to someone, bound with brads. And I've discovered a couple of things.
1. Staples does not have #5 Acco Brass Fasteners. They have 1 1/4" brads, but they're too thin.
2. Everyone (Amazon, even the Writers Store) seems to be charging over $15 plus shipping for a box of 100 proper #5 Acco Brass Fasteners.
When did this happen?
Anyone have a source that charges less than $10?
Years ago. Been that way for my entire professional career.
You can only buy them on the cheap in bulk. Can't find them anywhere. And when you can they are at outrageous prices.
America: Gouging the little guy since forever.
I thought it was my fate to be brad-less and sad in South Africa, and that you you writers in the States and Canada were rolling in them.
Our grass is equally brown, it seems.
