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.

Great quality for the price! Review by ccfitzny
I ordered these for my husband who is retired but loves to write a personal note for many occasions . He thought they were just perfect. I gave them 4 stars because the card stock is not as heavy as I like but, really, they're his and he loves them. (Posted on 11/8/2015)

Excellent and Elegant! Review by Barbie
As always, the product is just as pictured and described.
Beautiful work! Highly recommend to others. (Posted on 5/31/2015)
Attractive for the price Review by Jan
Love the White with Blue ink and also the typeface I chose. I only wish the card stock was of a higher quality but then they would have cost more and with my budget, I wouldn't have been able to make the purchase. They have a classy look despite the low price! (Posted on 3/2/2015)
Perfect go-to notes for my sons Review by Stella
I ordered two sets; one for each of my sons age 26 and 16. Was tired of scrounging for the right male thank you note when they needed some. These arrived quickly and are absolutely perfect!

Very happy with this purchase. (Posted on 2/26/2015)
Great graduation gift Review by Maggie
I ordered this for a graduation gift. Very nice quality. (Posted on 12/22/2014)
Love these! Review by W's Mom
This double order was a refund for my son, who writes many personal notes in his business life. These cards are the perfect size to communicate a quick thank you, without having to think too hard about how to fill up the space. We especially like the simple, yet striking font. (Posted on 12/9/2014)
Simple Review by Jack
For that simple thank you or note, these are perfect. High quality product. (Posted on 10/16/2014)

I had a coupon for free shipping that website would not accept. But, I sat on the order for a new days and got an email for free shipping so processed order. I would definitely re-order this product. (Posted on 7/22/2014)
Nice paper weight, traditionally impressive Review by Teddy
I have used these for years and have heard they make quite the impression when dropping a little, "thank you."

I highly recommend for gentlemen who want to leave behind something simple and more sophisticated.

I just re-ordered. But was a little sad there wasn't a card in the bottom offering a discount on my next order, like there used to be in my other orders :( (Posted on 6/20/2014)
Lovely Cards Review by Southern Mom
I bought these correspondence cards for my college aged sons. They are in business school at the university level and needed to have personalized stationery for writing business/professional hand-written correspondences and thank you notes. These are perfect! Thank you!

What's not to like? Review by Joshua
This was one of my favorite Christmas gifts. The paper is thick, the print was classy, and the design was nice and conservative. Good job. (Posted on 1/19/2014)
