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

TRIED AND TRUE Review by Jo-De
I've been using these postcards for years now. They are great for enclosures and whenever you want to send a message with your address on it. Compact, colorful, and concise. I use them for everything except postcards! (Posted on 4/22/2021)
postcards are a good deal Review by Dibbie
I have ordered these for ages and given them as gifts as well. They are sharp looking, your address is already on them, and you can send quick notes for the rate of a postcard stamp. Sturdy, practical and a good gift! (Posted on 4/12/2021)
So happy! Review by Libby
I was pleasantly surprised with the heavy weight of the cards. They look as good as they do in the catalog, but feel even better. Good going! (Posted on 2/8/2021)

L it’d selections and handy post cards! Review by Post Card Cuties
Like to keep these on hand for quick notes to friends and family. (Posted on 9/5/2020)
Quick message Review by G
With your name and address on the postcard plenty of room for a message. When my mother was in assisted living used these cards with her name and return address, added a message printed on package label from her, stuck on the card and then on front added address label to many friends and relatives. This kept her in touch with everyone at various time of the year and holidays when it was difficult to write so many. Excellent to have on hand. (Posted on 8/18/2020)
Practical/Quick Review by JED
Love these personalized postcards and have been ordering them (from various addresses over the years ) for 'decades'. Perfect for a quick note or message, and classy too! (Posted on 7/9/2020)
Excellent/Quick Review by JED
I love these personalized postcards, and have been getting them from American Stationery for YEARS... Realized recently - at a new address - that I didn't HAVE any, and ordered them - they're perfect, and they arrived quickly. I'm already using them! They're just the right size for a quick note or message, so I would definitely miss them if I didn't have them on hand. (Hope they don't decided to stop carrying them!). Good product. (Posted on 7/9/2020)
Great form of communication Review by Phil from Long Island
Simple way to communicate in which no scanning is needed and people other then the recipient may view one's message. (Posted on 6/8/2020)
Nice quality, great value! Review by bookfreak
I loved the many choices in print color and font and found a combination I like very much. The printing is clean, clear, and sharp. I look forward to using this for quick "thinking of you" notes to family and friends. (Posted on 4/11/2020)
Perfect budget Christmas Card Review by Cards
These arrived in perfect condition. With a few stickers they will convey my Christmas sentiments. (Posted on 12/13/2019)
Thick, well printed postcards Review by Mike
This is probably my eighth order for these cards. I put key contact at the top and dash off notes all the time. Even if the responses come via email, the recipient has received a hand-written note from me. (Posted on 10/31/2019)

I love my personalized postcards. They are heavy and of high quality. I look forward to using them. (Posted on 10/26/2019)
Great fun, easy way to keep in touch Review by Karen
I love snail mail and, I find, although I don't get mail back very often, my friends and family members like getting mail, too. these cards are perfect for the occasional note - a great way to keep in touch with people. (Posted on 6/22/2019)

Great Quick Notes Review by Cindy
I love these post cards and always keep a supply on hand. They are very affordable, personalized and good quality paper. They're wonderful for sending a thank you or "thinking of you" note. It's also nice to drop a line to let someone you know you remembered her birthday if you don't have b'day cards on hand. These post cards make it easy to keep up with correspondences and brighten someone's day with hand-written first-class mail. (Posted on 8/6/2018)

Great card to add to your invitation cards if you want them to send something back to you, e.g RSVP cards. Would suggest to have more lines to print for other card options. (Posted on 1/2/2017)

About the only source for return-addressed postcards. Wish they were a little larger, but they are perfect for short communications not appropriate for e-mail. (Posted on 2/25/2016)

These are great for a quick little note, however, the thickness of them sometimes causes a delay in delivery through the USPS. (Posted on 11/10/2015)
Excellent quality and appearance Review by Charls
This was the third time I've ordered these postcards for different addresses each time. The order has always been acurately filled and met my expectations based on past experience. (Posted on 8/22/2015)
great value and excellent messaging tool Review by Phil Kirk-Long Island
I have purchased this postcard through American Stationery for years. Way before the internet ! I have reordered often.
I am a techie and I love this form of communication way better than email or voice mail. I highly recommended this product. Just think when was the last time you received a hand written note other than a thank you note or sympathy acknowledgement. (Posted on 7/25/2015)
Great productt and great service Review by Sue
I love these postcards! Perfect for that quick little note. They arrived so quickly and are just as I anticipated. (Posted on 7/11/2015)
Great Product! Review by romijen
I purchased 2 sets of the postcard - one for each of my sons (ages 8 and 12) so they can write thank you notes for gifts. The quality of the postcards is outstanding! A hit with my boys as they both don't like writing so the postcard doesn't seem as intimidating as a regular notecard. (Posted on 6/2/2015)
Very nice Review by Suzanne
Nice quality. Lived up to what was stated in the description. (Posted on 5/3/2015)

Good value but wished paper were better Review by Phil on Long Island
I like to write my notes with a fountain pen and this paper stock makes it tougher. (Posted on 10/31/2013)
Just okay Review by Spunkie
For the price, this works but it is not the quality I have come to know from American Stationery. The names are all small. If you are ordering remember to make the font big enough that it shows well. I prefer the subtle colors rather than the bright colors on the stationery. That said, it makes a lovely, personalized gift for employees. (Posted on 10/9/2013)
just as pictured - very pleased Review by nana
Just what I was looking for! Very reasonably priced, attractive and very handy. (Posted on 9/3/2013)
