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.

High quality correspondence cards Review by Houston 77098
This was a refill order for my husband. However, he changed it up this time & had his cards printed in white (versus ivory) with a blue ink (vs black last time). He uses these cards for formal thank you notes at work. He is very happy with the product! (Posted on 5/4/2017)

Hits the spot Review by Adrian
I was very impressed with the speed of delivery. The quality of the envelopes also exceeded expectations. I reserve the 5th Star for a slightly heavier weight on the card. Very pleased! (Posted on 1/2/2017)

Just always a great gift Review by Stationery Seller
I got correspondence cards for a friend as a engagement/birthday/Christmas gift. It was just the "write" thing. I used the discount which was a gift for me. The notes are classic, and I ordered a different ink so that they were not completely formal. I like that the cards are useful, not something people generally get for themselves, and not a gift that usually is duplicated. (Posted on 12/12/2016)

Love these as graduation gifts Review by JDERX
I am in the habit of giving these as gifts when relatives or friends have children graduating. I only wish there was a better mechanism for informing me when the recipient actually receives the order...other than having to login and check the tracking information. (Posted on 6/22/2016)
excellent quality Review by Didi
Love the quality of the paper and having the cards packaged in a box (not true of another company I've used). The font I chose was larger than I would like for the return address. (Posted on 6/19/2016)
Excellent product! Review by Emily
These cards are absolutely beautiful. I ordered the ivory cards with a gold foil monogram, paired with lined envelopes. The Diplomat Correspondence Cards are elegant and classy, and perfect for any kind of note. The size of the card is just right, and the gold foil monogram is a nice touch. The lined envelopes are really pretty and definitely worth the extra cost. Additionally, my order arrived quickly. Overall, I am extremely satisfied with my purchase! (Posted on 6/16/2016)
Personal Notes a Plus! Review by Diane
Personal notes are a "plus" on these correspondence cards. I bought them for my sons for TY notes. Who doesn't love a handwritten note? Quick processing time and good quality. I was hoping the card stock would be a bit thicker, but overall, everyone is pleased. (Posted on 3/28/2016)

Please with purchase Review by sabine
These cards are perfect for short personal and professional notes of thanks or congratulations. (I have also used them as gift enclosures.) The stock is fairly substantial and the type style I chose is dignified but not stodgy. I was pleasantly surprised when the order arrived after only a few days. They're attractive, appropriate and a good value.

Perfect for my adult sons Review by MAMA
These cards are perfect for the few notes that my adult sons need to write. They are a nice weight and quality. For one son, I chose navy ink on white and the other a khaki colored ink on cream. I love both and am happy that my sons will each have handsome and appropriate stationery when needed. (Posted on 8/30/2015)

Great Review by Brufe
Correspondence cards and envelopes were great. Nice paper great printing. My only complaint, and it's not much of one, is that upon order placement, I did not see a place to select ink color, so I wound up with the default black. I did notice that on the re-order page, I had a choice of blue ink which is what I really wanted. No big deal, one can't go wrong with classic black on white printing. Will be back for more. Thanks.

good value Review by KC
Glad to have these handsome cards which I've already put to use. I wish the ink were less shiny... but realize that's possible if I want to pay for engraving, which I don't. Website is outstanding, ordering process smooth as silk, packaging and delivery perfect. (Posted on 1/26/2015)

Nice cards Review by Jonas
The cards looked as I expected and the service was good. I was disappointed to order with free shipping and then find that the next day they were advertising free shipping and 10% off. And free shipping has come again, so it pays to wait a bit to see what the options are. (Posted on 12/20/2014)

I have been ordering your products for years and have always been very happy with the service and the quality of the product.

At least that is the kind of style I'd like to present to the world! (Posted on 5/4/2014)
