      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!

      Thanks everyone, I'm really excited about the new species. The whales are evolving. I will post any new FAQs as questions arise ...

    10. sara hoffman on

      Dude! I saw the whale stapler on!
      *high five*

      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.

    12. Ari Glogower Creator on

      Hi Keith & Greg, Thanks for the important question. See the FAQ for an answer.

    13. Ari Glogower Creator on

      Thanks Lee! This is also the first Kickstarter I've felt compelled to launch. Can't wait to to send you your whale stapler!

      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.

    22. Ari Glogower Creator on

      Hi JJ,

      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.

    25. Dustin Schwartz on

      Very cool idea you have going here.

    26. Tyler Tinsley on

      I came for the whale and stayed because it stapled me here

    27. Torment- The Enduring Exile on

      I had to back this because it's quite a big project you got going here.

    28. Alexandre Peralta on

      Also-- If you need a mailing address can you please contact me so it's not sent to Alexandre Peralta... He's my director, but he's not getting my stapler!

    29. Alexandre Peralta on

      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!!

    30. Ari Glogower Creator on

      Offering multiple rewards for product design is complicated under Kickstarter policy. Drop me a line and I'll explain ...

      Hi Ari,

      If I donate twice as much money, can I have twice as many whale staplers?

      I hope so.

    32. Ari Glogower Creator on

      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!

    33. Ari Glogower Creator on

      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!

    34. Andrew Cornett on

      Do you have any samples of the sounds of the whale stapler?

    35. Becky on

      I'm so excited to receive my whale stapler! Do you plan to put any other Carve the Whales creations on Kickstarter?
