Description

Black paper is never going out of style

Even from the sides, our black business cards make a strong statement. You can certainly print a white paper with black ink but nothing comes close to a pre-dyed rich black paper stock. Because the black stock is so dark, we apply all text and design elements with foil stamping.

This does not mean all your info will be metallic, however, because we do stock some matte & gloss pigment foils that look just like ink when applied.

Tips for black paper business cards

  • Minimal, clean, and line-art based designs work well with black paper and foil stamping
  • Superfine lines (less than 1pt) are ok by us, but results will vary from design to design
  • Need help modifying your design to work with opaque foil? No worries, our designers can handle it for you.

FAQs

What type of black papers do you offer?

Black business cards are visually stunning. The rich, luxurious look and texture of black paper makes logos, patterns, and foil or embossing treatments stand out.

If you are looking for custom black papers, we can discuss a specific quote and have it ordered for you.

We also have our standard collection that includes:

  • Uncoated rich black stock – comes in 14 PT, 16 PT, or duplex 32 PT thickness
  • Onyx deep black suede – soft to the touch; comes in 22 PT thickness

Black museum board – comes in a very thick 50 PT (for letterpress printing or foil stamping only)

What is "rich" deep black and how do I get it?

The best way to get a deep rich black is to use a pre-dyed black paper stock, as featured on this product.

However, for those designs that require full-color process printing, you can print a full bleed black background on white paper stock.

To have the best chance at a deep dark black, follow the instructions below.

Rich black is an ink mixture of solid black, 100% K, with added CMY ink values. This CAUSES a darker tone than black ink alone. When you print black alone as 100% K, the resultant black might not be as dark as you may like.

We recommend

C 60 M 40 Y 40 K 100

This will provide a dark, deep, rich black.

*Products which are printed using dye-sublimation (9oz Premium Polyester Table Covers, Banner, Flags, Fabric Tube Displays, etc.)

call for the following color values:

C 100 M 100 Y 100 K 100

How do I setup artwork for a foil stamping or embossing?

You need to create two mask files for design projects that need foil stamping and embossing.

One has to be a mask file for foil stamping while the other is for embossing.

To create a vector-based artwork, use industry-standard applications such as Adobe Illustrator and InDesign.

Foil Stamping

  1. Create a design. We offer blank print-ready templates, which you can use to make your art.
  2. Make a duplicate of the project you’re making. Go to File, and Save your project as Filename_FoilStamping_Mask.pdf.
  3. Remove details or information that you don’t want to be in foil.
  4. Adjust colored details to 100%K (C:0% M:0% Y:0% K:100%). Please be extra careful when doing this. Make sure that none of the objects in the artwork move during this process.
  5. Delete the template layer on both of the files, and hit save.

Embossing

  1. Now that you have a design, make a copy of it. Go to File, and Save your project as Filename_Embossing_Mask.pdf.
  2. Delete design elements that you don’t want to be embossed.
  3.  The area of the design must be solid white while the details that need to be embossed should be in a solid black color. Set the CYMK value to: C:0% M:0% Y:0% K:100%. Again, be extra careful in doing this step so you won’t accidentally move the design elements.
  4. Delete the template layer on both of the files, and hit save.

We have PrePress designers who can take care of everything for you.

Send us the artwork, and we will set up the mask files.

We will send a proof for your approval before printing.

How do I get the black on black effect?

There are a couple of ways to achieve the black-on-black effect:

Either you print full wash of black ink on a silk or suede laminated paper and then add spot gloss to create rich, shiny areas of black. Go check out our Spot UV Cards

Or, you choose a foil-based product from which uses a black paper base on to which you can add a glossy Black Foil Stamp.
