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.
Black Business Cards for Fuse
Yes. Mayes Design.
Spot UV coating that reveals its full message on closer inspection.
The stark black & white lines make for a very sharp, minimalist aesthetic.
Frederik De Clercq
Loving the thick white edges!
From the designer:
Front, back, and detail shot of personal business cards. Letterpress was done at Boxcar Press, on 220lb Crane Letra, with 2-color press on front, and backside debossing. A bright green edge paint was done for added detail.
The silk-laminate with the spot UV coating make for a nice contrast of blacks.
Interesting texture on this one. Silver Letterpress Ink on 600gsm Hahnemuhle German Etching Special Black.
We Are Sweet
Premium matte card design for ‘we are sweet’ printed with foil blocked design.
Nice contrast of colours against the black.
Nice and clean. On a side note, the subtle logo is clever.
Chris Cavill – Graphic Designer
Printed on 540gsm duplex GF Smith board with blind embossing and matt black foil.
Francisco Aveledo Design
Ultra matte. Ultra minimalist. Love it.
Simple minimalist business card, black on black effect with coated mate and UV finish.
Thought & Theory
Nice textured black.
Gabriel Von Doscht
Super retro colour splash!
They seem to have messed up the spacing between the ‘N’ and the ‘A’.
So simple and yet so sweet!
