    Do you mean 'stamp'? Do you mean 'pages'? I have no idea what your last phrase means. Is it something to do with web-sites? (I doubt if anyone will be able to give you a useful answer unless you can re-word your question.)

    You probably do mean a staple, but you can also use a paper-clip

    Re: What word can we use to express the stamp which combine two or more pages togethe

    I'm sorry not to ask clearly.

    I want to concern about the work in office of a company. We often do some documents like contracts, agreements, Invoices, Packing Lists,... At the end of these, we always need a signature of the valid person as director or manager... and the stamp of the company (in our country, it is often the circular stamp). And when these papers have over 2 pages : example the contract has 3 pages, we often need a more joining stamp in both these 3 pages (it means that in a corner of each page there's a part of joining stamp).
    And I really don't know the word to express it.
    Do you understand my meaning?

    phoenixqn81 is saying that in Vietnam they use a stamp for a purpose that we do differently in the U.S. In the U.S., we write on the pages, "Page 1 of 3", "Page 2 of 3," and "Page 3 of 3." Our way shows whether any pages are missing, but it does not show whether an original document has been tampered with.

    I was an executive secretary for 12 years, and I worked in the offices of international companies, but I never saw a stamp like this. I do not know if there is an English name for it. A quick Google search on "Vietnamese document stamp" shows some results that talk about a stamp used to authenticate documents, but it only calls it a "seal," which is another word for "official stamp."

    If no better name is found, I suggest calling it an "anti-tampering seal."

    Re: What word can we use to express the stamp which combine two or more pages togethe

    In Canada, if you have an official document, signed by an officer of a particular company, sometimes the legal seal is stamped over the signature. The seal has a top and a bottom, the paper is placed between the two, and the seal pressed together. This makes a physical indentation in the paper, so the signature cannot be altered any more. this seal has the legally registered name of the company on it.

    Re: What word can we use to express the stamp which combine two or more pages togethe

    when we do the Original one, we don't need to do that stamp, just when we copy it into another/others, we put it. The reason is that:

    When we copy pages , we need one signature and one stamp done on each page.
    In stead of that, when we want to copy a set of pages, we just stamp on one any page (often on page 1 or the last page) and add more 1 stamp that join these pages together.

    So, it's just like the secure stamp for copying that set of pages.
