Is This The New Status Symbol? Marble Business Cards, iPhone Cases And Notebooks

For thousands of years, marble has been known for its aesthetic and functional value. It has always been a part of our artistic renditions. Marble is often seen as a status symbol.

Folks at San Francisco-based design firm Mikol Marmi have come up with unique products to make marble an integral part of our daily essentials. They offer marble business cards, marble iPhone cases, and even marble notebooks.

Mikol offering marble business cards

Mikol offers marble business cards in three variants: Light Emperador, Nero Marquina, and Carrara White. The design firm has its own manufacturing facilities to ensure ethical production of its offerings. Mikol claims that its business cards are made using 100% natural marble. Its marble business cards cost $125 for 20 cards. The per unit price goes down if you order more.

Sherry Wilkins of Mikol said the company offers different personalization options such as different designs and colors. It can also give them a luxury feel with gold and diamond dust. As expected, marble business cards are slightly heavier than paper-based cards. If you want to test out a marble business card, Mikol is offering a single customized business card for free as part of a promotional offer.

Marble iPhone 7 cases

Mikol offers nine different types of marble iPhone cases – including Carrara White, Nero Marquina, and Emerald Green. The least expensive of them costs $99, while the most expensive iPhone case – the Amethyst gemstone – will cost you a whopping $699. It may cost you as much as the iPhone itself. The company is taking pre-orders for the iPhone 7 marble cases, and promises to ship them within four weeks.

Marble is one thing whose quality can’t be tampered with easily. Mikol has been able to maintain the natural qualities of the precious stone while crafting its products. The company also offers special engravings. The cases are strong enough to withstand accidental drops or shocks, but you should take some care that your iPhone doesn’t fall with sides or corners hitting the ground first.

Real marble notebooks

Marble notebooks are among Mikol’s most popular offerings. The real marble front and back covers are just 0.7mm thick. It depicts the natural beauty of the precious stone without being affected by weight or fragility. The covers are built to flex “using laminated webbing and recycled corrugate between the Marble grains.” They also offer special engravings in gold color.
