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

just what I wanted Review by kjax
I send things to people from time to time - articles, photos, etc., - and I am always scrabbling around for a piece of paper for a note to put with whatever it is. I finally broke down and went to my favorite stationery source for pads, and they are just what I needed. And - very reasonably priced. I love them. (Posted on 6/27/2017)
Great Product Review by SunRose
Handy single sheets for quick notes or memos -- I use them every day. Paper quality is good without being too expensive; font for name and simple design lends a modern and up-to-date look. (Posted on 5/26/2017)
Great Notes Review by nyshar
I ordered these notes for my son who has finally decided to make lists to get everything done. They were masculine enough and the perfect size. (Posted on 1/22/2017)
Great gift Review by burghgal
This made a great gift for the young father in our family, who often works from home. I notice his wife using it, too! It is the just the kind of thing you never seem to have on hand when needed. Good looking and convenient. (Posted on 1/16/2017)

Very Useful Review by Gift Giver
I have ordered these in the past for other occasions and they are a good buy. Nice size with plenty of room to write. Ordered something else at the same time and that item, in the ordering screens, showed you what the product looked like with my text printed on it. Loved that feature and it would be great to provide it for all the items sold. Gave them as a gift and the recipient thought they were great. (Posted on 6/11/2015)

Recently I ordered two sets of notepads as Christmas gifts for co-workers. Not only is the quality excellent, I received the printed merchandise far more quickly than I expected.

nice elegant design Review by kath
This is the 5th design I've ordered and I'm pleased with it as well. I like ordering pads, but find it inconvenient to toggle back and forth between different designs. I'd love to see all the pads on one page for easy comparison.
but these produce well and look great. (Posted on 6/8/2014)

Great Notepads!!! Review by Runner Girl
I was given these notepads as a gift several years ago and when I ran out I searched the web until I found them! I make a weekly list of things I need to do and these fit the bill. They are the perfect size and I love the design. On my most recent order I noticed that the paper quality was higher much to my delight. I will be back for more!!! (Posted on 1/8/2014)
Good Quality Review by Kmf
I purchased several as gifts and have been impressed with the quality of the notepads and speed of order fulfillment. A sturdy box was included which made it simple for me to gift wrap. I will order again. (Posted on 12/24/2013)
