Foil Stamping

When it comes to black paper business cards, foil stamping is the ultimate choice to ensure a stunning and legible design.

However, with foil stamping, your designs come to life with a captivating metallic shine and crisp detail. Each foil stamp creates a bold and elegant statement that stands out effortlessly against the dark backdrop. The brilliance of foil stamping allows your black business cards to command attention and leave a lasting impression.

Black Ink Flood on White Paper

If you're working within a tighter budget, an alternative approach to achieve a black card aesthetic is by using white paper and employing black ink to print a solid background. While it may not offer the same metallic allure as foil stamping on black paper, this cost-effective solution still allows you to create a striking black card design with the versatility of black ink. Embrace the elegance of simplicity and make a bold statement with your black ink-printed black business cards.

Choose the perfect black card stock to elevate your designs and create a truly captivating visual experience.

Offset Printing vs Silk Screen Printing

While offset printing is technically feasible on black papers, it's important to note that the results may not be as optimal as one would expect. Offset inks are partially transparent, which means they may not show up well on darker backgrounds. However, fear not! There are alternatives that can deliver exceptional results. Silk screen printing, for instance, utilizes inks that are far more opaque, ensuring vibrant and visible prints on black papers. For an even more stunning outcome, non-metallic pigment foils can be utilized, adding a touch of elegance and depth to your designs. So, when it comes to printing on black papers, consider the advantages of screen print and non-metallic pigment foils to achieve the desired impact while ensuring your designs truly shine.

Metallic Ink

Enhance the allure of your black paper designs with the mesmerizing charm of metallic ink, such as the striking PMS 877 silver. Our metallic inks are formulated with a silver additive, making them significantly more opaque compared to regular PMS colors. This means your prints will truly shine on the dark canvas of black paper, exuding a captivating metallic sheen that catches the eye. To add this exquisite feature to your order, simply adjust the "spot color" field in the order form above and select the desired metallic ink option. Let your designs come to life with the brilliance of metallic ink, creating an extraordinary visual impact that will leave a lasting impression.

If you're uncertain about setting up your design for special printing processes like metallic ink, just reach out to us via email or live chat, and our knowledgeable staff will be happy to assist you.

Silver Foil & Gold Foil

Our selection includes five standard gold colors and two standard silver foils, ensuring you find the perfect shade to complement your design. Choose from a range of captivating options, including fully metallized silver for a dazzling mirror-like finish or matte metallic silver for a more subtle yet sophisticated effect. With silver foil or gold foil, your black business cards exude a sense of prestige and refinement. The lustrous shine of silver foil and the radiant glow of gold foil add a touch of luxury that captivates attention and leaves a lasting impression. Make your designs shine with the brilliance of silver foil or the allure of gold foil, transforming your black business cards into exquisite works of art.

White Ink

When it comes to black business cards, incorporating white ink opens up a world of creative possibilities. There are three primary methods to achieve white ink on black paper. Firstly, multiple passes of offset white can be employed, gradually increasing its opacity for a bold and vivid appearance. Secondly, silk screen white is inherently more opaque, providing a solid and striking contrast on the dark background. And finally, the use of non-metallic white pigment foil ensures 100% opacity, adding a touch of luxury and sophistication to your designs. With these options, you can unleash your creativity and craft black business cards that make a lasting impression with the mesmerizing power of white ink.

Black Foil: The Black on Black Effect

The result is a sophisticated and mysterious allure that adds a touch of luxury and elegance to your business cards. Elevate your brand and make a statement with the mesmerizing beauty of black foil on black business cards, capturing attention and sparking curiosity with every exchange.

Vector Format - Your PDF File for Foil Stamping

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.

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..
