At American Stationery, we use many types of printing processes, depending on the product you select.

Printing Process:

Thermography - The process involves heat that joins ink and a resin-like powder together. The fusion of the materials results in the appearance of "raised" letters. This printing process is one of the most popular choice for invitations, because of its value and quality of appearance. This is the most affordable print process if you are looking for classic, elegant "raised" printing.

Digital - In digital printing, an image is sent directly to the printer using digital files such as PDFs and those from graphics software such as Illustrator and InDesign. Digital printing is most efficient and cost effective when running small quantities, and the result are beautiful, high quality prints.

Letterpress - Letterpress continues to be one of the hottest trends in stationery.  It's been around for hundreds and hundreds of years. Letterpress is an ancient printing technique that involves printing words or designs with ink while simultaneously debossing the image into thick, soft paper. The letterpress look is elegant, stylish, high-end and nothing short of stunning.

Engraving - The paper is placed on the press face down above the inked plate. It is then printed by pressure coming down on the back of the sheet while the front of the sheet meets with the plate. This "sandwich" effect creates the raised lettering and bruise on the back of the printed paper that are both classic features of engraver.

Foil Stamping -  Printing process that fuses foil to paper. A thin layer of foil is pressed between a piece of paper and a heated die. The image on the die cuts and heats the foil, binding it to the paper. You might be thinking of mylar ballons when you think of the word "foil".  But don't be fooled.  You can find many matte-ink colors such as white or cream, which produces a gorgeous invitation.

Quantities will vary according to each product, but in most cases quantities will refer to how many pieces are in 1 set or box.  So for example, when you see a quantity of "1 = $34.95", it means you will receive 1 box of cards for $34.95.

Mygatsby was one of the pioneers of the "stacked" enclosure cards!  We created these cards specifically so these accessory cards would complement your invitation stylishly yet with function.

Small Enclosure Card: 4.25"x4.50"

  • This card is typically used as a Reception Card, Ceremony Card, Gift Registry or At-Home Card, or for any "simple" information you might be trying to deliver to your guests. 

RSVP card w/ envelope: 4.25"x5.50"

  • RSVP is derived from the French phrase, repondez s'il vous plait, meaning "respond if you please." It is a polite way of requesting a response to the invitation. It allows you to have an accurate guest count and can even help with allowing your guests to choose meal options, or any other information you will require in planning your reception.Mygatsby also nclude your name and return address printed on the envelope (or postcard  for our smaller invitations) to make it easier for invited guests to respond. Traditionally, the sender provides postage, to make it easier for your guests to respond.

Large Enclosure Card: 4.25"x6.50"

  • This card is typically used as a Directions Card, Accommodations Card, or any additional detailed information you might be trying to deliver to your guests. 

Additional Matching Accessories

For flat printing, all ink color choices are included in the cost of your item.  There are no additional charges.

For thermgraphy and letterpress ink colors, the ink color you choose is included in the price of your order.  If you would like to choose a second color for an accessory item (such as wine ink for your card, and black ink for your envelopes), there is an additional charge (see additional charges below).

Pricing for each additional ink color is as follows:

  • 1st ink:  No charge.  Included in price.
  • 2nd ink:  $30.00 one time charge.  This same ink color may be used across all of your invitation ensemble pieces.

For an additional fee of $6 you can get your stationery gift wrapped. Your gift message is included on an attractive gift card.

Excellent and handy labels Review by Diane
I have used these mailing labels for years and they are very handy. They used to come on a roll, however, which is easier than the new system in which they are packed flat. (Posted on 12/25/2014)
PERFECTION Review by LynnieMae
The labels are outstanding, large enough to write a complete address with a sticky back that works every time. This is our second order! (Posted on 12/19/2014)
I love these address labels! Review by Marvee
I ordered three sets of these labels, probably the third time at least that I've ordered these for myself and others. They are so bright, the printing is very legible, the sticky back works every time; they are perfect in every way. And very easy to give as gifts to others. I am grateful for them.

Happy Review by Romans126Studio
My labels came just as I ordered and are great for me! I can just write in the ship to address and be done and don't have to take up time making a return address label as I did before. Will be getting more after I am done with the ones I have! (Posted on 9/28/2014)

Great labels Review by Penman
I have been using these labels for many years. They hold up through the USPS, UPS etc? The latest set I ordered came with the one improvement I would have liked - flat and stacked rather than on a roll which made them curl. (Posted on 8/10/2014)
Look business-like! Review by CHO
Love these new labels! Large area in which to write the addressee's information. Easily stuck to postal box's surface. Our name and address look very business-like and are easily readable. Red, white, and blue says USA. Mailed out first package using them and made a good impression. Thank you! (Posted on 6/14/2014)

GREAT!! Review by Music Lady
This is my second order of the shipping labels. They make mailing packages so easy and I love the quality. (Posted on 5/1/2014)
ok Review by Jane
The products from American Stationery has always been excellent! The process of ordering online was confusing and somewhat difficult. I got an email that my order was completed; then an email that it was not completed; then an email that I'd get free shipping. I rechecked to make sure my order was in fact completed and on its way. It was and I was told to disregard the confusing emails. I was surprised to find my product came flat, in sets of two. I liked the little box and the rolled up address labels from years past because I could put it in a drawer and pull off the labels as I needed them. Small issues. The labels were correct, they are beautiful, I got them on time. I am satisfied. (Posted on 5/1/2014)

Great Labels Review by Jack
I reordered the labels I have been using to mail packages and envelopes. Since I had some experience with the labels, I knew them to be of good quality and they work great. I really like the labels and having them personalized speeds up the preparation of anything I mail using them. (Posted on 4/12/2014)

AWESOME (Posted on 4/6/2014)
Love the labels and the convenience of the printed return address Review by Pat
You never know exactly what you will be getting when you order over the Internet. However, I am more than pleased with these shipping labels. They are sturdy, and the printing was done perfectly... nice and bold and entirely accurate. They also look professional, with the bold red, white, and blue stripes below the return address.

I ship a lot of packages, and these labels will make my life much easier. I have an old IBM Selectric typewriter. So if I don't want to hand-write the address, I can stick a label in the typewriter roller and type away. Never throw out typewriters. They come in handy, now and then. (Posted on 4/4/2014)
great labels Review by Ellie
I am just running out of them after 18 or so years. They are losing their stick, but I have had them for a long time. Glad they are still available. (Posted on 3/20/2014)
great mailing labels Review by Gram
I have ordered and used these labels for years. They are great quality and I think add a certain finished look to a package or mailing envelope. (Posted on 3/5/2014)
practical tool for mailing a package Review by Birdie
I've been using these mailing labels for years, ran out recently, and was so thankful that they are still available.
So useful and easy when one needs to mail a package. (Posted on 2/4/2014)
Confusing to order Review by Mac
The online ordering of the personalization is difficult to discern on the screen. Some script types are unavailable. Not certain how the address lines would appear on the label. Just had to take what came. (Posted on 11/11/2013)
A Many Year Label User Review by Ivey J.
I have always been proud to affix these handsome labels going out to friends and relatives. I still am proud to use red, white and blue items whenever possible. By the way, the adhesive is grade A which is important as my packages whip through the mail. (Posted on 11/27/2009)
