I’m a pretty forgetful person. When I print a document out, it’s only then that I realize that I’ve forgotten to type the date in the document that I’m about to staple together. Usually I just print the first page again, but if putting in the date affects the entire formatting of the thing, then I have to print everything out again. Really wasteful, I know.
Which is why I think the Date Stapler is pretty much a godsend, although it’s still a concept design for now.
The Date Stapler is a design by Gonglue Jiang. As you can already tell from its name, the Date Stapler can staple your papers together and imprint the date beneath the stapler at the same time.
It’s perfect for forgetful people and those who have really bad handwriting. (I mean, how would you feel if you received a report with the date scribbled haphazardly in handwriting that resembles chicken scratches at the corner of the page? Not saying that my handwriting is anything like that, of course…)
Some cool additions to this design would be to have interchangeable cartridges so you can have it stamp on dates in various colors.
