Type of Staples

UI am attaching some cedar shingles to an old railway station (from half way up the wall to the roof line). I have been using 16 gauge 1&1/4" galvanized staples, I think I should switch to stainless steel or aluminium. Any suggestions? There is an 8 ft. overhang on the sides and 40 ft overhang at each end so the siding isn't totally esposed.
Part two is where do I look for a supplier? The Home Depots don't carry and weren't much help.

The stainless steel staples won't leave any residue on the shingles like the galvanized ones.
Sources depend on where you are. Local lumberyards should be able to get them.
