Blomus Stainless Steel Deluxe Business Card Case
I’ve seen the Blomus Stainless Steel Deluxe Business Card Case around for a while and have always liked the looks of it, so when I was recently ordering stuff from Organize.com, I figured it was about time I actually bought it instead of being picky and trying to find the perfect business card case. I feel like this is one of those things I’ve over shopped for and considering the fact that its only about $10, I’ve probably wasted more time searching than its worth at this point.
As you can see from the first photo, the case comes well packaged, and is made completely of stainless steel, even the inside springy flap that keeps tension on the back of the business cards to keep them from sliding out. The case itself measures 3 3/4″ by 2 1/2″, and is advertised to fit up to 25 business cards in it. Sometimes I feel like listed capacities like that are just “suggestions” but in this case and with my business cards it was right on the nose, I couldn’t squeeze in even a 26th without destroying it, but obviously the thickness of said cards will be the final determination of how many you can fit in there.
So far you have seen the front, and now the back of the Blomus Stainless Steel Deluxe Business Card Case, and one of the things that is clearly visible are the clean smooth lines of it which make it great for sliding in a front pocket, or into a small pocket in your brief case or laptop bag. All of the corners are slightly rounded too, so you shouldnt have any issues with getting caught o poking through things. Personally I wouldn’t carry this in my front pocket for any extended period of time because its so rigid and a little bigger than anything Id like to have to carry around like that considering I usually have my cell phone and wallet in either pocket.
My only real issue with this business card case is something that some might see as a benefit, so take the following with a grain of salt. In the photo above you can see that I’ve shifted all of my business cards to the bottom of the case, or the far left, which leaves a good size gap in the top of the case. Now this is great if you have larger than average business cards, but for someone like myself who likes to keep things small, compact, and minimal, I really would have preferred a smaller opening here so the whole thing was smaller in my pocket or bag.
I really don’t see myself using this case going forward, however it isn’t a case of the product not working as it should, it just isn’t good for my personal situation, although it will get me by for now. So, I think I am back to searching for the “perfect” business card case, which will probably be impossible to find, but I can tell you that it IS fun shopping for stuff like this, and gives me the opportunity to write up some more reviews that can hopefully help you make the right decision for you and your office supply needs.
