The traditional business card printing methods meant it was more economical to use black ink on white or off-white paper. Now, it can be just as budget-friendly to use a dark background, so you can really get creative with how you present yourself on paper.
Here are some design tips for dark business cards:
- Use a font that’s easy to read
- Text needs to be in a color that stands out from the background; use light colors for the most contrast
- If your logo is also dark, create a lighter version to use on your business cards so it will stand out from the background
Dark business card designs can be very attractive, stylish, and unique. Considering using a darker background also allows you to better match other marketing materials such as your website or printed brochure if these use a darker base palette.
If dark colors aren’t your cup of tea, you can lighten things up but still set yourself apart from the pack with different business card sizes and shapes from PrintRunner.com, including “leaf” die cut, slim, and magnetic cards.
