Most Popular Questions
We do not print ink on our Premium Black stocks as it will not show. The only way to add detail to the cards is with a foil, screen print or an emboss.
If you choose Premium Black W1S cards, the white is available with full color CMYK.
Can I add Spot UV to my Premium Black cards?
Spot UV is only available on our 16pt Coated stock (which is a white stock) with Smooth Matte Laminate or Semi Gloss coating.
If you'd like a Premium Black stock but want a similar appearance to spot UV, choose a clear or black foil. For a more cost effective alternative, opt for our 18pt Suede stock with Spot Black ink, though this option is only available on one side. You will have to go with a different print process on the other.
How are Premium Black cards different from your other cards?
Our Premium Black cards are produced on an all-black card stock, so the the edges are black and the inside of the card is black (if you tear it apart). This is unique as most standard cards are white and printed with black ink to appear black.
As our Premium Black stocks are very dark, standard ink will not be visible when printed. Foil, Screen Print and Emboss are the only printing processes available on our Premium Black stocks.
Our Premium Black cards are a premium product due to the high quality and caliber of card that is used – as well as the higher production costs from foiling / embossing (rather than printing).
How eco-friendly is the Premium Black range?
The Premium Black range has been developed keeping sustainability and the environment in mind. All of the card stocks contain a minimum of 30% recycled content.
Please note: 2-Ply cards or cards with foiling or cannot be recycled with regular card/paper.
What Premium Black stocks are available?
We have a range of Premium Black stocks available:
- Jet Black

Our 16pt Jet Black paper is acid free, lignin free, and made of 30% post consumer waste. It has an intense black colour and has a creamy texture that is smooth to the touch. Being acid free and lignin free means this paper stock will never lose its crispness and its fibers will not weaken overtime.
Black Index Value: 100
Our 24pt smooth suede paper is made of 20% post consumer waste and an additional 40% is recycled fiber from other sources. Its unparalleled thickness and smooth suede-like texture make it our most luxurious card stock. A distinct malleable feel paired with its unique surface texture will have people convinced this stock is made of exquisite suede.
Black Index Value: 90
Our 30pt Onyx Black paper combines extreme thickness with a super smooth surface. This is arguably one of our sturdiest paper stocks, sure to make a powerful impression. This exciting new addition to the Premium Black product line is currently available to order through a Print Quote request, and can be used in combination with foiling, letterpress, embossing and 3D embossing.

Select File Format:
- Bleed Area
- Trim Area
- Safe Area
Bleed Area refers to images that extend to the very edges of a design. To prevent an unwanted white border from showing at the edge of your design, or for the design to appear slightly off-center, be sure to extend any background colors or design elements all the way to the edge of bleed (.125” past the trim on all four sides).
Trim Area refers to the amount of the image that will appear on your finished product. These areas will also be marked with ‘cut lines’ on your proof and are where we aim to cut your card.
Safety Area in most cases refers to 1/8 of an inch inside of the Trim Area. For thicker papers 20pt and up or wooden papers the Safety Area increases ¼ of an inch inside the Trim Area. we strongly recommend you keep important aspects of your design such as text and logos well inside of the Safety Area, otherwise, they may be cut off.
Design Considerations for Premium Black
Our Premium Black cards are all about look and feel. We recommend keeping design details to a bare minimum for maximum impact - this means few colors (1-2) and graphics. Fine details and text are not legible in embossing, so we recommend very large sizes for any embossed text.
