When I hear stylus, I often think of the now ancient Palm Pilots (or if you were like me, a Handspring) of the 1990’s. The stylus’ were what you needed with these devices to take notes and update your tasks (I never did master writing in graffiti). However with the touchscreen revolution, the stylus’ of yesteryear slipped into the background.
However the stylus has recently re-emerged as a useful tool for smartphones and tablets. Stylus’ are handy for people who do not like fingerprints on their screens and would rather write and tap with a stylus vs. a finger. This short video by CNet discusses some of the ways people use stylus’ with their smartphone and tablet devices.
As a promotional product, this new style of stylus is on fire. Many of our partners have added new options and tell us that these are one of their hottest products, not just in their tech product line, but overall! The new stylus looks much different from the old version. They are wider like a pen and feature a round soft tip. There are a number of stylus options to choose from, including metal or plastic, short and long, and versions that dual as a pen. The pricing for most custom imprinted stylus’ range from around $1 to $5.
So if you want to give out a useful and hot promotional product, consider a stylus. To see the stylus options that we have to offer, click HERE.
