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.

Customer Reviews

almost perfect Review by LC
These are great for a quick little note, however, the thickness of them sometimes causes a delay in delivery through the USPS. (Posted on 11/10/2015)
Excellent quality and appearance Review by Charls
This was the third time I've ordered these postcards for different addresses each time. The order has always been acurately filled and met my expectations based on past experience. (Posted on 8/21/2015)
great value and excellent messaging tool Review by Phil Kirk-Long Island
I have purchased this postcard through American Stationery for years. Way before the internet ! I have reordered often.
I am a techie and I love this form of communication way better than email or voice mail. I highly recommended this product. Just think when was the last time you received a hand written note other than a thank you note or sympathy acknowledgement. (Posted on 7/25/2015)
Great productt and great service Review by Sue
I love these postcards! Perfect for that quick little note. They arrived so quickly and are just as I anticipated. (Posted on 7/10/2015)
Great Product! Review by romijen
I purchased 2 sets of the postcard - one for each of my sons (ages 8 and 12) so they can write thank you notes for gifts. The quality of the postcards is outstanding! A hit with my boys as they both don't like writing so the postcard doesn't seem as intimidating as a regular notecard. (Posted on 6/2/2015)

High Praise Review by Alaska

Good value but wished paper were better Review by Phil on Long Island
I like to write my notes with a fountain pen and this paper stock makes it tougher. (Posted on 10/31/2013)
Just okay Review by Spunkie
For the price, this works but it is not the quality I have come to know from American Stationery. The names are all small. If you are ordering remember to make the font big enough that it shows well. I prefer the subtle colors rather than the bright colors on the stationery. That said, it makes a lovely, personalized gift for employees. (Posted on 10/9/2013)
just as pictured - very pleased Review by nana
Just what I was looking for! Very reasonably priced, attractive and very handy. (Posted on 9/3/2013)
