Black Business Cards Inspiration – 22 Sweet Examples

Coming close on the heels of our last post featuring kraft paper business cards, here is a black business cards themed post for anyone looking for some dark inspiration. Not only does the use of black give these cards major style points, it lends whomever has their name emblazoned on the front an air of mystery.

There’s nothing like a solid black business card to turn heads, and turn heads these do. Hand a card like one of these out at your next networking event and you can bet that the person on the receiving end will be holding onto it, not just binning it along with the pocketful of others.

Let us know in the comments what you think of these black beauties!

We’ll be doing a few follow up business card posts in the coming weeks so stay tuned and be sure to subscribe to our feed to be the first to hear about them.
