FAQs - Gray Business Cards

Are gray business cards boring?

Absolutely not! Gray is a classic, elegant, and professional color that can be dressed up or down depending on the stock you use. Plus, it's a great neutral base for adding pops of color with your logo or other design elements.

Can gray business cards be used in any business?

Absolutely! Gray is a versatile color that works well in many different fields, from finance and consulting to design and fashion. It's all about getting the right color and feel for your brand.

What's the difference between gray business cards that aren't coated and those that are?

The finish on uncoated cards is more natural and matte, while the finish on coated cards is glossy or satin. It really just comes down to what you like and how you want things to look and feel.

Can I give my gray business cards a different finish?

No problem! You can give your cards a little extra pizzazz with special finishes like foiled edges, foil stamping, or raised ink.

How do I decide what shade of gray to use on my business cards?

It depends on how you want the card to look and feel. Grays that are lighter can feel more modern and airy, while grays that are darker can feel more traditional and formal. Try out a few different shades to find the one that looks best for you.

Does gray cost more than other colors for business cards?

No, not always. The price of business cards depends on many things, like how many you order, what kind of paper you choose, and if you add any special finishes or printing techniques. Gray is just one of many color options, and our customer support can help you find the perfect card.

Can I make gray business cards on my own at home?

If you want to do it yourself, you can! You can make your own business cards with the help of many templates and design tools you can find online. Just keep in mind that Print Peppermint has better equipment and materials for printing, so you might not get the same level of finish as you would with us!

How are ink colors affected by printing on Gray paper?

When printing with ink on gray paper, it's important to remember that the color of the paper can change how the ink colors look. Depending on the shade of gray you use and the colors of ink you use to print, some colors may look lighter or darker than you expect. 

Because of this, we recommend foils for colored papers. We have pigment foils that, once applied, look just like they have been printed with ink. We also have foils that are shiny, matte, or holographic. The shine of these foils will never wear off on gray business cards.
