There are three basic kinds of staple gun to choose from: muscle-powered, compressed-air, and electric-powered. The electric models come in both corded and cordless versions, depending on how mobile you need to be with your stapling, the cordless option is a good bet. Do you need to staple upholstery? Boards or panels may require quarter-inch staples, but if you have thicker stapling jobs, consider a heavy-duty three-in-one stapler. These models can handle a variety of fastening needs including brads, staples, and pin nails. Let the nature of your stapling work determine what kinds of staple gun to purchase. You can always add smaller or larger staple guns for special needs later on.
