What kind of black papers do you offer?

We have a great group of curated black papers and can order custom papers as well if your budget allows - simply fill out our quote request form to get started.

Are black business cards a good idea?

Yes, black business cards are a great idea! Not only do they look sleek and sophisticated, but they also provide an extra layer of uniqueness that can help you stand out from the competition. Plus, since black is a timeless color, your card won't go out of style like other more flashy options might.

Black business cards have been popular for decades with powerful professionals such as lawyers and CEOs who want to make an impression at first glance. They add a touch of mystery and class to any meeting or networking event. They also reflect taste and sophistication in the same way that wearing all-black clothing does.

Are black business cards more expensive?

If choosing black paper with foil stamping then in short, yes. If you use white paper and print it black, then the cost is inline with any other full color printed cards.

Is black a good color for business cards?

Black is a bold and elegant color that communicates professionalism and strength. When it comes to business cards, black makes any information you include standout, giving your cards a modern edge. Business cards in black also give off an aura of sophistication and opulence which can help you come across as a serious professional who commands respect. Based on our past years of orders, black paper is the most common colored paper chosen for business cards, outside of white paper of course.

What color texts work on black business cards?

When it comes to black business cards, the most important thing to keep in mind is contrast. When choosing a text color for your card, you want something that will not get lost on the dark background, but also isn’t too bright or overwhelming.

White is certainly an option and can create a strong contrast against the black background. But if you’re looking for something different and more eye-catching, consider light shades of other colors such as grey or off-white. You can even try adding some bold pops of color like yellow or orange to give the card some extra personality. And for a truly stylish look, you can opt for a sleek black on black effect where your text matches the darkness of your base color!

No matter what combination you decide upon–bright and bold or subtle and chic–just make sure it’s easy to read and stands out without being garish.

What is the true black cmyk for business cards?

When it comes to producing a professional business card, you need to make sure your black looks as sharp and clean as possible. Fortunately, there is an easy way to do that: by selecting the right CMYK values for printing.

We recommend using c=40 m=60 y=60 k=100 for your business cards. This combination of values will produce the deepest, truest black color which will have maximum impact with any type of paper or card stock. 

Can I add Spot UV to black business cards?

Yes! We using a matte coated or matte laminated paper this is no problem and a great way to add depth to your design. If using uncoated paper or black paper we recommend using thermography to give a raised spot uv look or glossy black foil, depending on the intricacy of your design elements.

Can you print regular offset ink on black paper?

Technically, yes you can print regular offset ink on black paper. That being said, offset inks are partially transparent, so what you'll see won't be all that impressive or consistent in quality. 

Therefore, we recommend using foil stamping or silk screen printing to apply your text and design.

How do you make business cards black and gold?

If you want to make your business cards black and gold, there are two main options that you can choose from. The first option is to use a high-quality black paper stock and then apply some gold foil to it. This will give your business cards a classy, sophisticated look as the solid colors stand out against each other. 

The second option is using a gold metallic paper stock with black ink printed on top of it. 

How do you make black on black business cards?

There are (3) great ways to achieve this. Either print a white matte paper black, then apply spot uv. Or, use a black paper and add thermography or a black glossy foil.

For white paper printed black, you can also use a muted black color for the background and a richer black color for the glossy elements to enhance the visual contrast.

How do I make black luxury business cards?

For the most luxurious results we recommend choosing a thick exotic pre-dyed black paper and adding your design with foil stamping.

How do I make red and black business cards?

Either use white paper and print your black and red ink next to each other, or choose black paper and add red foil. We have metallic red foils and non-metallic foils that basically look like ink.

Where can I find black business cards templates?

We have a small group of curated black designs but if you don't find something there are plenty of websites offering beautiful black business card templates. One of my favorites is Canva – they have a vast collection of professional-looking designs that you can customize easily in just a few clicks. You just need to sign up using your email address or social media accounts and start experimenting with different colors, layouts, shapes and sizes to create something truly unique.

What kind of black business cards backgrounds do you recommend?

Are you looking to make a dynamite first impression? Don't settle for ordinary when seeking out black business cards backgrounds! Here are a few top picks that will set you off with a bold, confident flair:

1. Classic Black & White – For the professional who wants to combine timeless style with subtle elegance, classic black and white is always in fashion. Whether your contact information is printed in sleek silver or outlined minimally in charcoal gray, this pairing of tones never fails to look striking.

2. Abstract Art – If making an artistic statement matters most to you, consider adding abstract art like minimalistic diamonds, interlocking shapes or contemporary geometric designs as your background option for standing out from the crowd at networking events.

3. Glittering Gold – Black has plenty of glamour on its own but if it's dazzle and sparkle that you seek then pair it up gold lettering against a matte black backdrop for an eye-catching effect without being over-the-top gaudy or ostentatious. It's sure to get everyone admiring the finesse and sophistication at first glance!

4. Damask Prints– These luxurious prints ooze refinement and class whilst also giving off vintage vibes so if it's something more exotic that appeals to you then go ahead and add intricate damask designs as backdrops which will put any lacquer finishing treatments into sharp relief as well as making each card look truly special while being memorably distinctive too..

How do I make pink and black business cards?

There's always a few ways to skin a cat. You can print black and pink ink on a white paper - you could even use Pantones Neon / Pastel series inks for an extra bright pink. You could also opt to use bright pink paper and print black ink or even foil stamp in black on it.
