Packaging made of black cardboard is extremely noble and can often be found in the premium segment. The black packaging box is also popular for high-quality short runs or manufactory products. With a simple finishing, such as a hot foil embossing or blind embossing, black packaging can be effectively staged. Even with a monochrome print in opaque white, you can achieve great effects. We will be happy to show you how your black packaging can become a noble eye-catcher in no time at all.


Black Packaging Boxes Advantages, Types, Applications

Black natural cardboard is stable and at the same time very noble – especially in combination with embossing. Not only the printing of a box conveys a certain message, but also the type of cardboard. We offer four different carton variants in our shop. Each variety tells a different story. In this blog post, we will discuss the “king of material types” – black natural cardboard and black packaging boxes.


What is Black Cardboard Paper?

The black cardboard that we offer at Luxury Paper Box is natural cardboard paper. This means that it does not have a coating finish, as is the case with our chromo board in white, for example. It is therefore an uncoated carton. It also has a high level of strength and convinces with its general effect, which is simple but at the same time very noble.


Features Of Black Cardboard Boxes

The black cardboard that we use for the production of our packaging is black natural or kraft cardboard. Kraft board is extremely stable and has high resistance, tear-resistance and bending stiffness. It is unbleached and completely black. The black natural cardboard is uncoated and has a natural, matte surface that feels pleasant and smooth when painted over. Due to its special surface structure, the cardboard remains clean and free of fingerprints. As a result, it retains its luxurious look.

This means that the black natural cardboard is similar to our brown natural cardboard. However, the two differ in a few advantages:

  • 1) Elegance: Black natural cardboard is much more elegant in effect than brown natural cardboard. But the brown natural cardboard scores with its sustainable “eco” appearance
  • 2) Printability: Brown natural cardboard can be printed with colorful prints; natural black cardboard can be printed in silver or white
  • 3) Suitable for: Brown natural cardboard can be used for natural cosmetics folding cartons or other modern natural products. Black natural cardboard is suitable for noble product presentations, presentation packaging, gift sets, invitations, sparkling wine packaging or other high-quality products.
  • 4) Finishes: Both the brown natural board and the black natural cardboard can be enhanced by our range of finishes. In combination with a print or without any printing – the finishes put the icing on the cake on your high-quality packaging!


Which Boxes Go Well With Black Cardboard?

All our box variants can be ordered in black natural cardboard. Brand new we also offer you the stands and displays in black natural cardboard, including white or silver printing – for an elegant appearance at the point of sale or at the next trade fair. In addition to the white or silver printing, there is a nice way to customize the black natural cardboard in our shop by embossing or finishing. In combination with the cardboard, these result in an elegant picture.


Best Surface Finishing (Printings) of Black Cardboard Packaging

When designing black packaging, the rule is: less is more. Due to a reduced design, the high-quality material comes into its own particularly beautifully. With discreet finishes or prints, the packaging becomes a noble eye-catcher in no time at all. A particularly beautiful effect can be achieved with a hot foil embossing in gold or silver, as this stands out particularly well from the black material color. But even with a partial UV varnish or blind embossing, the packaging receives a high-quality, luxurious touch. For more information about possible refinements, see Worth knowing.

What finishing options do you have when you order a printed box or a black cardboard stand? We will show you all the options that you can easily select in the configurator:

1) Black cardboard with golden hot foil embossing

Hot foil embossing in gold – royal result included. In the process, a golden film is applied to the cardboard using heat and pressure. The shiny, golden foil stands out clearly and nobly against the matte, dark background. The golden color brings royal elegance to black packaging that can otherwise be kept simple.

2) Black cardboard with silver hot foil embossing

Hot foil in silver – the modern variant, which is in no way inferior to gold. It is applied to the cardboard using the same process as the golden hot foil. The silver looks very noble on a black box, but at the same time modern and clean.

3) Partial UV varnish on the black box

To set a simple accent, we not only offer hot foil embossing in black – but a partial UV varnish is also a great way to highlight a logo or lettering on the black box. The UV coating can be felt as well as the other finishes and thus allows the packaging to be experienced in a new way. In the light, the paint also reflects in an elegant way and can therefore be rediscovered depending on the incidence of light.

4) Blind embossing sets simple accents

Another refinement variant is blind embossing. For this purpose, an embossing stamp is used, on which the motif of your choice is depicted, as well as the matching negative counterpart. With the help of printing, the motif can now be embossed into the paper surface. The motif now looks sublime and can be felt haptically – so the customer experiences the product in a completely new, exciting way.

Black Cardboard Packaging Applications (FAQ)

If you opt for a black packaging, in addition to the black natural cardboard, you also have the option of taking a white chromo board GC1 and having it printed black. Chromo cardboard can be printed on both sides. The paper line on the front allows a print image with a brilliant color effect. On the natural side, on the other hand, the print looks a bit dull and natural.

With black cardboard, you can also have an elegant version of an advent calendar made – for example, perfectly combined with a golden hot foil embossing.
