How will black print turn out and how to prepare for it it.. Black will turn out different on different stocks.
Essentially If you want the darkest of blacks, you need a GLOSS laminated card with correct CMYK to make 'rich black'.
The next best option is 'Premium' quality uncoated stocks (of which we have three choices)
Other stocks and options will vary the density of the back.

What is rich black? | Printing Definition | Pre-Press

On Laminated Stock

Gloss laminate will bring out the depth / richness of black ink far greater than matt laminate. You can however add Spot UV (gloss artwork over the top of the matt laminate)

On Uncoated Stock

Different uncoated cards have different ink density thresholds. If you want a ‘deep / rich’ black, the 550 GSM premium cotton has you covered.
The other alternative is to use a black stock card, however this will limit your design to using PMS 877 (metallic silver) or foil stamping.
