As the title mentioned, I am wondering is it secure to use a non-screen cold walelt to store my cryptocurrencies? since I saw some wallet brands in the markets are promoting card-style wallets that have no screen.

I dount it.
All hardware wallet need a hot-device who can communicate with them.  For a hardware wallet with screen, if your hot-device is hacked, you will know it and will stop the transaction before send your coin out.  It your hardware wallet has no screen , you won't be able to do that.

A screen is not necessary, but a screen can be used to provide increased security in addition to a better user experience.

A hardware wallet with no screen is more or less like paper wallet imo. If you want to use it as long-term storage, and by that I mean not using it to send and receive crypto regularly, it is still okay. But if you want to use it daily/weekly, maybe you should look for another option.

As long as you save it in a secure place, there shouldn't be a problem.

Not sure how it is with the brands that you mentioned that have no screen but for the Ledger you need a screen to see the PIN that you are entering. Also when you verify the account details, the address will be shown on the screen of the device as well as in the Ledger Live app.
It is probably easier to use one that has a screen though.

I know one which is called Secalot. IMO, I wouldn’t use it. Your wallet could be saying something (sending A BTC to X address) but actually sending a totally different tx (sending B to Y) for you to sign. You will always relay on the software.
