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.

Great product, great value Review by DougC
I was very pleased with my recent purchase. The card stock was excellent. The card looked exactly as I had designed it on-line. Very easy process. Product was delivered in a very short amount of time. I highly recommend. My choice was ecru stock with a dark burgundy border. Lettering in the same dark burgundy. Very nice looking, I can pass them out with pride. (Posted on 12/16/2016)

Stand out from the crowd Review by Anne
I loved all the color options for paper, borders and ink. I placed a set for each family member beside the condolence book at my mother's memorial with a frame note that asked to please keep in touch. Take our card or leave one of yours. Very positive response from guests. (Posted on 9/10/2016)

Handsome Review by Tom
Tom's personal cards are a complement to his regular business cards. After I received mine, he asked if I could order him some for himself!
As usual, a very professional and beautiful product! (Posted on 8/7/2016)
great choices for color and font Review by scribbler
I bought these for my 91 year old mother, who keeps them by the phone, in her purse, and hands them to DRs offices for her contact information. This is her second set; she used up the first in less than a year.

The many choices for personalizing each line with color and choice of font make the card truly your own. But the default choices are very easy to read and easy on the eyes. With 6 lines, you can get cell, home phone, and email in. (Posted on 8/1/2016)

We ordered 2 sets of cards - one for each of us. They arrived perfect to the letter, and very promptly. (Posted on 7/22/2016)

Very nice calling cards! Review by Carol
I wanted a calling card with just my name, phone numbers, and email address that didn't look like the usual business card. These turned out great. I ordered the blue border on ivory card stock with black printing -- very classy. It was helpful to order online to see what they'll look like ahead of time. Great purchase! (Posted on 3/29/2015)

Extremely satisfied Review by Joan
I do not have a business, but I wanted a simple calling card for those impromptu occasions when I want to share my contact info and there is not pen or paper handy. I enjoyed the order process so much. It was fun to choose color and font and see it appear on the screen as one made changes to determine the desired look. The card paper is excellent quality. The shipment was super-fast and on time as promised. I am looking at other items to order at this time. (Posted on 3/7/2015)

Extreme quality at any price Review by Discriminating
The card stock is heavy and the printing well done; what a luxury! I will be very proud to use these cards. There was an error on the first printing I received, and upon notification, the whole order was reprinted quickly and without question. I've ordered from American Stationery for many years and have never been disappointed. (Posted on 2/24/2015)

Very nice Review by Netnet
I ordered the cards with dark gray order. Overall very happy and exactly what I was looking for. Printing was even and the gray border is the professional touch I was looming for. Wished they were just a little heavier card stock but perfectly fine as is.
You should consider offering a beveled edge option as well.

Ordered my cards online and am very pleased with the final product! Originally ordered from a "competitor" (trust me, there is NO competition there!) and was devastated with the product. American Stationery offers quality, professional products. Will definitely order again! (Posted on 10/18/2014)

5 star Review by ogden lafaye
Good product...good service...will order more in the future.

It would be nice to be able to select a slightly smaller (gentleman's) calling card. I am sure American Stationery is not familiar with the history of calling cards and proper card etiquette. (Posted on 5/30/2014)
Great Quality Informational Card Review by Janet
1st time I purchased this item....reason being I'm in between sales careers and since I didn't want to hand out other company cards, I decided to just have a simple, classic card with name, email, and phone number. Perfect! (Posted on 5/21/2014)

Beautiful, Convenient & Well Priced!!! Review by Snowmuff
I am constantly having to give out my phone number and/or email when shopping, making contacts, etc. It is so convenient for me to just reach into my bag and hand them a calling card with my name, phone and email without giving out my address. This is a secure and safe way for me to be giving out my email which is almost constantly and not having to repeat it or write it down. I love these cards as they are beautiful and economical. (Posted on 5/4/2014)

High Quality Product Review by Elizowen
We ordered these cards for our high school son who is interviewing for college placement. We read about having calling cards with vital information and a memorable and personal quote to help stand out in a crowd.

We loved using the online software to design and preview our cards; that is a very useful feature! There were no surprises, as a result, when we received the finished product. The cards were exactly as we created and the stock of the paper a nice medium weight quality.

I have ordered personalized stationery from here and have not been disappointed ever! I now know I can a shop the whole product line with the expectation of high quality across the board.

With thanks... (Posted on 4/26/2014)
