I came across a suggestion to use Sharpies to color the staples yourself, so I searched for info on that. Not much came up though, no tips, how tos, pros or cons. It sounded like a good idea, plus I have loads of staples and dozens of different colored Sharpies, so I tried it out for myself. Here's my experiment, complete with unprofessional pictures!
Got any hints? Got a better idea? Done a similar tutorial? I'd love to hear about it, so bring it on!
