20 Powerful Black Business Cards

Black business cards never go out of style. As the saying goes, you can never go wrong with black. When designing your business card, the first thing and most important element of your design that you have to decide on is the color to use. Many people prefer to use black for their business cards because it is the color of seriousness, elegance and mystery–characteristics that you also would want to project for your business. . Black is also often considered to be the color of gravity, solemnity and power, which are important elements in attracting business. Aside from that, black is the symbol of authority, formality, privacy, elegance, grace, sexuality, mystery, sophistication and prosperity. This color is also strongly associated with elegance and elite.

Today, we are featuring 20 of the most stylish and elegant black business cards to inspire you in designing your own black business cards. Some made use of pure black card stock and ink with foiling or spot gloss to highlight the lements of the design. Some made use of color combinations by using ink in red, blue and other colors. I hope you find this collection inspiring!

09- Maestro Productions
From the Designer: ” I decided to make the card 95% black, and have a beginning and ending musical staff 100% black. I did this because I used a varnish coating on the 100% black so that looking at the card straight on you could hardly see the background objects, but turned ever so slightly, the light would make the symbols pop.”

10- Elegant Black Cards
From the Designers: The stars came into alignment recently as we had two clients who both needed black business cards. We took advantage of the bigger quantities by printing the cards on some really killer (read expensive) paper that has a black core and a rubberized/soft touch finish that feels quite luxurious. Both cards are printed with metallic inks and have spot clear gloss varnish effects which really pop on the matte black paper but at the same time are subtle and elegant.
