How To Choose The Best Staple Gun For Beginners

Choosing the right stapler for your project can be challenging. Surebonder takes pride in producing quality staplers and knows how important it is to the get the design right. We aim to give our customers comfort and function to make the job easy. No matter how big or small your project is we will help you choose the right stapler to get the job done right the first time.

Ammo

First, let's talk about our ammunition. Ammunition can include different types of staples, brad nails or pin nails. When referring to the types of staples, you will typically see the word “crown”. This is the top of the staple and can include the following; narrow crown, medium crown, wide crown, power crown, and round crown. Some staplers will even use brads or pin nails. The stapler you choose will depend on the project at hand and what types of staples there are available. Let's take a look at the types of projects next as that will help determine what staplers you will need.

Crafts

For smaller craft projects, usually a light duty staple gun would work just fine like our 5580 staple gun that shoots light duty staples. If you want to take your project to the next level, but still maintain the ease of light duty stapling, we would suggest our heavy duty Triggerfire Staple Gun. This is a great staple gun for crafts and upholstery projects.  What makes this staple gun unique is it’s simple trigger system. The three step system allows you to accurately place the staple gun where you need to staple, pre-engage the staple gun by squeezing the handle, and with the light touch of a finger set the staple where you need it without much force. You also have the option to use it like a normal staple gun!  Winner of the 2014 ADEX Award, you can’t go wrong with the Triggerfire!

Upholstery

Staplers are well known for their part in upholstery. The first thing you want to do is determine the fabric you are using. The thicker the fabric the longer the staple leg length you will need to fasten the fabric to your surface. Typical staple sizes for this application are 5/16, 3/8, & 1/2 inch.  

For this application we suggest the TriggerFire staple gun or the Surebonder 2-in-1 Heavy Duty Staple Gun if you prefer using manual staple guns. If you have an air compressor readily available, you would go with a pneumatic staple gun. The Surebonder 9600B Heavy Duty staple gun or the Surebonder 9615A Upholstery staple gun has been selected by Staplegunreviews.com as two of the best Upholstery Staple Guns of 2017. Keep in mind the pneumatic 9615A Upholstery staple gun uses different staples than the conventional manual staple guns and 9600 Heavy Duty staple gun.

Carpentry

For both small & large woodworking projects, something with a little more power behind always works best. Applications include using staples as the main point of fastening or they can be used as a secondary form of fastening. Some cabinet makers use glue to be the main bond between the wood, but then reinforce the bond with staples. You will also find staples being used in trim finish pieces, cedar shingles, fascia, soffits, fencing, flooring, and siding. The best staple gun for carpentry is the Surebonder 9630 1/4” Narrow Crown staple gun that shoots staple leg lengths from 5/8” - 1 9/16”.  

We hope this helped guide you in the world of staplers. Stay tuned as we will continue to share information and inspiration to help you with every project.
