I love my whale stapler!!!!
Got mine today.
Mine had Joke #90
What did Paul Seaman say to Art Garbarnacle?
You can call me Albatross.
Anyway. Thanks Ari. I'm going to man the harpoons.
Just got my wife's whale stapler today. Great stuff. The joke was a good one!
Just got our whale stapler. Love it. Where are the "sounds of the whale stapler?"
Since you had to chop up the whale to make the stapler you could probably make a tap despensor from the tail section. :)
Gratz on successful funding!
Congratulations dude! Whale staplers~!
Thanks everyone, I'm really excited about the new species. The whales are evolving. I will post any new FAQs as questions arise ...
Dude! I saw the whale stapler on https://www.kickstarter.com/mobile!
Will you be adding more to the FAQ about the new whale species?
The new designs are great. North Atlantic Grey for us. Like that classic look.
Hi Keith & Greg, Thanks for the important question. See the FAQ for an answer.
Thanks Lee! This is also the first Kickstarter I've felt compelled to launch. Can't wait to to send you your whale stapler!
This is the first Kickstarter we've ever felt compelled to support. We cant wait for our whale stapler.
Hi Ari -
What does the Whale Stapler eat? Is it a filter feeder or does it need a steady diet of giant squid? Thanks!
Great work, fighting to save the whale staplers! Thank you!
I meant 1 and a half foot wide. Like a huge one!
You should make a whale sized version that is like 1 and a half long! I would buy that.
You had me at "Unfortunately, normal lego bricks barely exist anymore, just this crap, so I didn't have time to find some for this project.".
Thanks for the update! Looking forward to my whale stapler.
JJ: See the FAQS section for a prior question on blow-holes. I know this is an important issue, so I want to set the record straight.
Thanks for your question. All the whale staplers will be made by hand, which takes time. But then again, I am prepared to get them all done, I just won't have much of a life outside of "sleep-work-staplers" until they're finished. I've started production already based on the incredibly positive response, and hope to post a production update soon. Friends have also offered to help out in meeting the demand.
Short answer then is I plan to have all the staplers ready April, if not sooner.
I ordered LOTS of internal stapler parts from china, since that is the only way they let you do business there. If for some reason I need to order more stapler mechanisms, there might be a slight delay, but the manufacturer is on notice and will ship quickly if it looks like I'm getting to the point where I need more (not likely, but you never know!)
Thanks again and can't wait to send you your stapler!
Love the project!
Will you be making these based on backer order? Just curious in can you project gets super popular in the end.
Last question: no blow hole?
He had me at thieving children.
Very cool idea you have going here.
I came for the whale and stayed because it stapled me here
I had to back this because it's quite a big project you got going here.
Also-- If you need a mailing address can you please contact me firstname.lastname@example.org so it's not sent to Alexandre Peralta... He's my director, but he's not getting my stapler!
Totally excited about your Whale Stapler! I can't wait to get mine! I just friended you on FB -- My name is Alexis Morrell .. I backed you under my friend's name because we are "Looking at the Stars" on Kickstarter. Good luck and so glad I found your project!!
Offering multiple rewards for product design is complicated under Kickstarter policy. Drop me a line and I'll explain ...
If I donate twice as much money, can I have twice as many whale staplers?
I hope so.
I hope to work on producing some of the other carve the whales projects in the future, but it's all whale stapler for now!
Most of the Sounds of the Whale Stapler made it into the video, but I will try to post the previous cut that has even more whale stapler sounds!
Do you have any samples of the sounds of the whale stapler?
I'm so excited to receive my whale stapler! Do you plan to put any other Carve the Whales creations on Kickstarter?
