Staples

Has that staple always been right there in the logo?

MMDE: The Staples logo is all a regular font

Current: The Staples logo has a staple attached to its "L"

Some people are saying the Staples logo has changed and are claiming this is a Mandela Effect. References today show a styled staple on the "L" in the middle of their name, which is appropriate for their brand, but this seems to jump out as new to others.

Businesses, especially nationwides ones, invest millions in their brand. Every detail is carefully designed to give an immediate impression to their current and potential customers. They are very unlikely to tinker with it needlessley without a very good reason.

Nevertheless, this is being seriously discussed and is of real concern to those who feel there is more to this than just a false memory.
