For the last couple of years, styluses have grown in popularity as marketing tools. This popularity can be linked to the rapid rise of digital devices around the world.
At Promo Direct, we take pride in offering some of the finest styluses available online. The purpose of this article is to introduce users to the world of styluses. Not many people are aware that styluses are available in different forms. Let’s take a look at them.
Capacitive Stylus – the most common and economical form of stylus!
The stylus you have encountered is probably a capacitive stylus. It is commonly used on smartphones that have a capacitive touchscreen. And most conventional touchscreens are capacitive in nature so this type of stylus will never go out of fashion as tech giveaways!
The majority of styluses found on our site are capacitive in nature. A capacitive stylus works just like your finger – messing with the screen’s electrostatic field to render touches! This kind of stylus is also the most inexpensive of the lot!
Wacom Digitizer – suitable for those who are keenly interested in drawing on tablets!
Wacom devices are perfect for drawing on tablet devices. This kind of stylus features a special sensor that interacts with the touchscreen. It is rarely used as a giveaway but is gaining in popularity as a consumer product. The perfect example of this form of stylus is Microsoft’s Surface Pro Pen. Samsung is another major company that provides Wacom styluses.
This type of stylus is much more expensive than a capacitive one. You will have to do adequate research to identify the best one for drawing on your devices. Note that Wacom styluses don’t work with most devices.
Bluetooth Stylus – featuring a wireless touch!
This is the rarest and most expensive of all styluses. It uses Bluetooth technology to connect with touchscreens. Just like any other Bluetooth device, you will have to “pair” this form of stylus with a tablet or smartphone for it to function.
By default, a Bluetooth stylus is a capacitive one and it creates pressure on the screen to make things work. However, with Bluetooth enabled, this stylus ceases to create pressure but sends signals to the device instead. These signals are then converted into pressure points to make it work.
It will take a while before Wacom and Bluetooth styluses make an impact in our daily lives. Till then, capacitive styluses will rule! At Promo Direct, we get a lot of orders for our range of capacitive styluses. We strongly recommend that you invest in the Stylus Highlighter Pen Combo, Techno Stylus Pen and Boston Silver Stylus Pen. These products are attractive, useful and durable. What’s more, they are bulked priced at less than a dollar! So get in touch with us and make styluses the central focus of your next marketing campaign!
