"TOOL TIME TUESDAY" The Fastenater by EK Success


This week's tool is brought to you by: EK Success. It's not a new tool but one that should be showcased. It is called the FASTENATER STAPLER.

As you can see it is not your ordinary stapler with your ordinary staples.

Use this "fascinating" tool like a desk stapler to enhance projects of all sorts. A great alternative to using brads! Tool Features: Ability to staple anywhere on a 12 x 12" paper; Alignment Stopper can be moved along ruler base to aid in precision; Loading capabilities just like a regular desk stapler; Comfort grip on handle; Rubber stoppers on bottom keep tool from sliding; Staples up to 5 pieces of cardstock. The Silver Word Staples contain 144 staple bars with a variety of words and icons that you can color with paint, ink or markers. The Silver Word Staples have multiple words per strip so that the staple bars do not need to be changed to create phrases. The Color Staples contain 72 staple bars which have blank surfaces that can be sanded, engraved and more! While it works just like a regular stapler it is NOT a regular stapler. You cannot fit regular size staples in this stapler. It requires those specifically made by EK Success to accompany this tool.

Here it is in action:

Many online retailers sell the tool & the staples as well. They even have a mini version of it along with a staple remover specifically for these one of a kind staples.
It's price point runs anywhere from $18.99-$24.99 depending on where you purchase it. You can use your 40% or 50% coupon on this item at your friendly neighborhood Michael's, Joanne's, A.C.Moore or Hobby Lobby.
The staples run anywhere from $1.99-$5.99. They come in a variety of colors, decorative styles & metallic finishes as well.

I know not too long ago I featured a long reach stapler where the premise is the same. But, one clear advantage with this one is the VARIETY of staples, not only in colors but styles, themes and words. Which is why I decided to also highlight this stapler. It has unique options that may appeal to you more so than the other stapler.
It is always good to contrast & compare then decide based on the facts.

I have one & use it. I think it's time for me to take it out to play again.
Thanks for tuning in.

  1. How about the brand new tool, created for Craftys, the Staple Jack? It can grab and pull and do all sorts of fine work. It holds things and pulls staples, etc.
