Default Stylus sources

I used my SQUARE card reader yesterday for the first time and noticed only one issue. The customers were weirded out using their finger to sign. I need to make a stylus or two.

Is CSUSA the only source?

Berea Hardwoods also has them now. I believe Exotics sells a version too.

Woodcraft sells them also, And you can put the rubber stylus on just about any 7mm pen, replacing the end cap above the clip. I've done it to a bunch of my Trimlime pens from PSI. Works pretty darn Good.

Woodcraft has a Wall St II with stylus. I just put one together. Works pretty good on my Samsung Tablet.

The stylus tip from CSUSA can be easly fitted to the Elegant Sierra, Cigar and Virage. Probably many others but these are the only ones I have done.

Ok lots of options cool. Thanks.

It was funny watching a guy with sausage fingers fingers trying to sign on my little phone. I will most likely be getting a tablet of some sort. The cost of the tablet will be less than the cost of my original card reader so this Square thing will turn out to be a win win situation.

From what I have heard from the IT community, the stylus needs to be conductive. When you take a simple rubber "stylus" and put it in a pen, in place of a refill, does it WORK on these Apple gadgets???
