Last time, we featured white on white letterpress business card.  This time around, we decided to look at their black counterparts. Next to white and Kraft, black is a very popular color of stock used in printing business cards via letterpress. Black  is your safest bet if you wish to have a modern looking and elegant business card. I am biased to minimal and clean design so I prefer those black letterpress business cards with only impression on the logo and other details done through embossing or debossing. I also love to see those cards that made use of subtle silver, white, gold or copper inks.

Below, we put together a total of 25 black letterpress business cards for inspiration. Make sure to check more information and images by visiting the source. You can do so by clicking on the preview image of the card of your choice. I hope you will find these cards inspiring as well.
