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 Cards Review by Joanie
My daughter-in-law loves the cards. What more can I say. (Posted on 6/19/2015)
Love These Review by cfred
I have used other companies but always come back to American Stationery because the weight of the paper stock is so much heavier, which I love. My only complaint is that the pictures show the name being available in a script, but it is only available in block letters. Small quibble, as this is the color border and ink I wanted. Just lovely!! (Posted on 6/15/2015)
5 stars Review by Caro
Perfect! Thank you! (Posted on 5/5/2015)

The color is true as pictured. The 3 initial monogram is very elegant in the aqua. (Posted on 4/26/2015)
Breezy and Beautiful! Review by Graham
These lovely correspondence cards have a nice "in hand" weight and feel. These are for my daughter, and, while we have matched a fountain ink to the pen she uses, Sharpie's ultra fine in AQUA is a strong match. The liner adds to the high quality. (Posted on 3/18/2015)

High Quality Review by Sarah
I was very excited to receive these cards after ordering them and they have met my high expectations. I am very picky about stationery and these cards are beautiful. The hand bordering is the perfect touch with the monogram. I'm so glad I went with the aqua color for a pop of color. I am pleased with the weight of the card and envelope. I have ordered many things from American Stationery and have always been more than pleased with the quality and value of my purchases. (Posted on 12/27/2013)

So Cute & Fun to Wite Notes on Review by Deb B.
I really love the Aqua Hand Bordered Correspondence Cards and sea life envelope inserts. They are beautifully made and are just a joy to write on. I find I am finding more and more reasons to write to everyone, as I know they will love receiving them as much as I love sending this stationery. (Posted on 10/25/2013)
Beautiful color Review by emls
These cards are bright and cheery. Really enjoying them. (Posted on 10/3/2013)
Absolutely stunning! Review by Starfish39
These note cards are just gorgeous! I ordered them for my sister-in-law as a gift, included the return address and envelope liners and they look even more stunning "in person". As an aside, I also ordered the personalized Aqua Shaeffer pen shown in the catalogue - while the pen is lovely, it clashes horribly with the Aqua notes. The pen is actually blue, not aqua. I was disappointed, but American Stationery credited my account for the charge. Excellent customer service, as usual,as Ialso used live chat for a question I had during the ordering process. Despite the glitch with the pen, A great experience.
