How To Sell Stone Slabs Online in 2022

Natural Stone BIM 360

If you're looking to sell your marble slabs, there are a few options available to you. You can sell them through online marketplaces, through stone and tile retailers, or directly to consumers. Each option has its own set of pros and cons, so it's important to weigh your options carefully before making a decision. But first, let's take a look at the inherited difficulties of selling and designing with natural stone and how we can overcome them with the latest technology.



The Natural Heritage

There is a great disparity of slabs on the market, with some selling much better than others. However, this is to be expected since mountains are not uniform and can offer a variety of slabs. While strongly veined materials are most characterful, they often sell less and need to be stored for longer periods. The main reason is that they have a more dramatic and less uniform appearance, which can make them less versatile and more difficult to work with when creating intricate designs. This makes them a less popular choice and makes it harder for suppliers to offer them at a competitive price.


The Technological Revolution

Recent advancements in slab digitization and blending technology have opened up new possibilities for working with veined materials. Creating digital dry layouts from true-to-size scanned slabs makes surface design predictable and offers a cost-effective way to visualize and produce complex stone projects.


Digital Dry Layout

Welcome to drylayout.com, the pioneering website for digital stone processing! We offer a variety of tools to help you manage, market, blend and sell both cut-to-size and raw stone. Before we get into the interactive blending demo, let's take a quick look at the main components of the software.


DIGITIZE

Innovative Slab Digitization

We offer customized digitization options for slabs and blocks for every size and situation. From smartphone photos where an AI removes the background to scanners integrated in the production line. Our low-cost solutions offer an easy entry point with amazing image quality.
EXHIBIT

Online Stock Showcase

The stone gallery allows you to display currently available slabs. Filter functions help the customer to find the right stone for his cut-to-size project or direct request of raw slabs. Join our project platform or create a custom store only for your slabs and customers.
MARKET
