The Dark Side: Black Business Card Designs

black business cards

For many entrepreneurs, business cards are often the first impression that they leave with their prospective customers. While many of us opt for a white or light-colored business card for the sake of legibility, a darker or even black business card can be a stand out way to express your individuality. Black has long been a color associated with luxury and class, but often, designers steer away from the color choice when creating business cards because they are either expensive to produce on black paper, or can be harder to read.

However, none of those things are true. Black business cards can be just as legible and clear as cards designed in any other color, and can even make your design stand out even more. To demonstrate just how versatile black business card designs can be, we’ve collected some of our favorite below to inspire your next design.
