Publicide’s black business cards create immediate, distinctive looks, notably, with the most minimal of designs. The pop of metallic ink or foil on dark paper is usually achieved by printing a flood of ink onto white paper with knock-outs for the art. But if you’re going to go dark we recommend going all the way by using one of our many black papers in thicknesses from 130# up through 260#! Black business cards are more durable than black on white paper since the black goes all the way through. Black cards given out to new contacts will last longer in a pocket and have less scuffing than a color flood.

Black paper can be used with any print process, creating a multitude of possible outcomes. Silver, gold or bronze metallic offset business cards are a simple and effective way to make a stand-out look for your design. Letterpress gives that extra feel, especially nice on thicker paper. Foil stamping gives anything a flash of light and with black paper, the effect is multiplied even more. Digital printing can work on black paper as well if you’re going for a super covert black on black look. Printing black business cards takes special consideration as most Pantone inks are transparent and disappear into the black paper surface. Metallic inks are the exception to this and remain opaque on the black paper. White ink can even be used for printing on black paper in some cases.

Pricing for black business cards is based on quantity, paper type and the number of processes and machines that will be used in creating your order. More elaborate and custom print specs cost considerably more than standard orders, so it’s important to get your quote before proceeding. Production time varies with order complexity and our seasonal workload but our elastic schedule allows for very fast rush prints when required, though rush charges apply. Turnaround time is calculated from the date of PDF proof approval. If your black business card project has a hard due-date please let us know when making your request. Email us with your design file or specs to receive a custom quote for your printing project. All projects must have a custom quote number to proceed.


Some black business card printing specs are available for rush printing service. To inquire about a rush black card job, please email artwork, print specifications and desired completion date ASAP to If we’re able to accommodate your schedule we will reply with pricing and additional costs for the rush. Rush black card printing is one of our specialties but please be aware that every moment counts in a rush print schedule. Some jobs will require additional shifts and weekend work to finish on time so the price can be significantly higher than jobs on a regular schedule.
