There’s nothing like having a dark stock instead of laying down the color you want. There’s a real sense of authenticity that is just plain impressive when you see a card with a colored background and it’s the paper, not the ink, that is the color.
Screen printing on your business cards is a great way to do what is impossible for other processes, specially printing light colors on dark paper. White ink is a specific niche that screen printing holds over the less opaque letterpress and offset options. The other option for white on dark would be foil, which is great and has it’s place. Yes we can foil your cards, but the choice between the two is really design specific… Feel free to call us to see which we recommend for your design.
Here are a few screen printed cards on dark stocks to help inspire you for possibilities…
Duplexed to double thick 130# Neenah Epic Black, this card a 3/2 spot. The tone on tone gives the card a ‘spot uv’ feel, even though it’s just gloss ink. This paper is a rich black sheet.
A 1/0 square card on 140# French Black Muscletone, a softer more grainy black paper
Duplexed double thick on French Hot Fudge and Cement Green. 3/2 spot
2/0 spot on 140# French Muscletone Black
1/1 white ink on 130# Neenah Epic Black
A good example of how opaque our white screen print ink is.
