Cable staples

I have a large amount of 13/16 wide x 1 3/8 long insulated cable staples left over. Is it ok to use these on 12/2 romex cable size? I know they are much bigger than intended for 12/2 but is there any code or anything that would flag this?

You can use them on the 12/2.

The only person who will care is the guy that pulls them out someday. You will be cursed at, but that's OK.
