Last time on Handmade Highlights I featured some adorable retro sleeves for the iPad, iPhone, and iPad mini. Today I’ve got something a bit different for you, picked especially for those of you who enjoy note taking or sketching on your iDevice. There are hundreds of great styluses on the market, like the Cosmonaut, the Adonit Jot Pro, and the Architect from Arctic, but while these styluses work well enough, they all lack an important characteristic - panache. That’s where the Quill Pen Stylus comes in. These styluses from Etsy seller Visker and Scrivener are designed to work with iPads, iPhones, and any other touch screen device. They work like a typical rubber-tipped stylus, but they’ve had a dashing feather added to the end, just like a traditional ink quill pen. Each of these 10.5-inch quills comes equipped with a soft capacitive tip that will not scratch the screen of your iDevice, and all of them feature a unique, one-of-a-kind design with a wrapped cover and a different color feather. You can get them in a range of colors and designs, from typical bird feathers to feathers that have been dyed bright colors. Quills sold by Visker and Scrivener, including these styluses, come with a lifetime warranty. If your snazzy stylus should break, you can mail the pieces back and it will be replaced or repaired at no cost. If you regularly use a stylus to take notes and write memos on an iPad or iPhone, you might as well do it in style with one of these fantastic quill styluses. You can get your own from the Visker and Scrivener shop for just $20. Want even more Handmade Highlights? Check out my archives.
