Key to Success

These elegant business card stands are sure to strike the right note. Not only do they have a clean, geometric design that combine natural wood with a sleek white veneer, but they are also crafted from reclaimed piano keys. They come from a Minneapolis-area non-profit that restores old pianos and makes them available to their community. In these restorations, they find that some pianos are so damaged that they simply cannot be repaired -- instead of simply throwing these pianos away, they have helped these materials transition from musical keyboard to desktop helper. Made in the USA.

Creative idea but too small for cards

    Comments about PIANO KEY BUSINESS CARD HOLDER:

    I bought this as a graduation gift for my sister, who is a pianist majoring in music education. It's a great idea, but the holder is too short to properly accomodate business cards printed in the traditional horizontal/landscape orientation. I'm bummed. Maybe she can use it as a photo holder or organizer of some kind, but as a desktop business card holder it's too short and lightweight.

    Pros: Unique & creative design, good presentation (boxed with artist card)

    Cons: Too short to hold business cards printed in the traditional landscape/horizontal orientation, too lightweight (easily topples over)

    Comments about PIANO KEY BUSINESS CARD HOLDER:

    This is a little different, not too crazy for a conservative office, and it reminds me of my piano background. But the quality could be better--I would have loved (and paid a little more for) a clear coating/sealant on the exposed wood. And while it does technically hold horizontally-oriented business cards, it's not quite long enough, so the edges of your cards will hang off the edge a little bit.

    Comments about PIANO KEY BUSINESS CARD HOLDER:

    I bought this present for a friend of mine who is a pianist. He really loved it and it's a very unique gift for someone music-oriented. The one thing I will say though is the holder itself were good, it just seemed a little lower quality than I expected. But, it's still a great gift and I would recommend it to anyone.

    Service and delivery comments:

    The packaging was pretty low quality(the box it came in was completely bent and frazzled)

        Comments about PIANO KEY BUSINESS CARD HOLDER:

        I bought this for my boyfriend who is a dr (so has business cards) and also a pianist. I was a little disappointed by the very unfinished appearance of the wood surrounding the piano keys. I think it would be better if that wood were painted black (like the black keys on a piano!) instead of the raw light brown color that it is. In fact, I may paint it black myself before I give it to him. But in any case it is definitely a very unique, useful item for anyone who loves/plays the piano and has business cards.

        Comments about PIANO KEY BUSINESS CARD HOLDER:

        I bought this for my brother, a talented pianist, who recently started a new job. I haven't given to him yet(I know he'll like it!) but am looking forward to watching him figure out what it is. I'm not sure what I was expecting (it is very plain, no frills, casual design) but it is definitely a piano key! I had to get it for him because he loves his piano, and it's timely since he's got a new stack of business cards to keep on his desk!

        Service and delivery comments:

        Delivery was great, on time, well packaged.

        I have one of these on my desk and I absolutely love it! It's beautifully crafted, unique, and a great way to re-purpose parts from a piano! I'd recommend it to anyone!

        I love these! It would be great to see what other items are produced from recycled pianos.

        I like the recycling concept but who would know it's a piano key?

        Love the recycling idea and that they are made in America. Just wish they could maybe look a little more obvious as piano keys. Great concept.

        For a music lover- great. I didn't know they were piano keys until I read the description though.

        There are fewer black keys on a piano. Why not offer 2 versions - I might pay more for the combination of colors. Does Keys 4/4 Kids have a logo that could identify them as Piano Keys, ot is it just supposed to be obvious? I've never seen Keys upside down.

        They're neat, but probably out of my price range. I don't know that I like them a lot more than many other options. I do like that they are reusing something that would otherwise probably be thrown out.
