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.

    Elegant, traditional personal stationery Review by Chris
    I finally was able to find a source for the simple, personal stationery like my mother (and I) used to use, at a reasonable price. It was easy to choose the font style and size, and there were no errors made in the printing of my name and address. The envelopes are preprinted (on the flap side) so I don't need to use the return address labels from the various charities that are courting me. Now, to make myself sit down and write to people! I used my first letter as a quasi Christmas "card" - I just wrote a short note and holiday wish. (Posted on 12/13/2020)

    General Service Review by p2wicker
    I originally came to this company while in search of traditional products I could no longer find in local stores. I still wanted to send my family hand-written letters, but not on 8-1/2 x 11 paper! I got exactly what I ordered, at a reasonable price, and within the expected delivery time. These days...that's exceptional! I will be a repeat customer! (Posted on 3/3/2017)
