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.

    Quality cards at a bargain Review by Suzanne
    These cards are a winner all the way around. The embossing is crisp and perfect. The weight of the paper is luxurious and takes ink of all sorts nicely. The size of the cards is perfect for thank you notes, short "thinking of you" messages, and kind words that need a more personal touch.

    I have used American Stationery for many years now, and this product is another lovely purchase. I was sad to move away from my favorite design because I have too many initials after getting married, but these cards are a lovely next step. (Posted on 11/4/2019)

    Beautiful set Review by ToriLynn
    I'm always so amazed at the beautiful quality and materials used by American Stationary for the price that I pay. This is the 2nd or third time I've ordered these notes and I absolutely love them. The card stock is sturdy as are the lined envelopes. The embossing is centered on the page and fills the size of the front cover page with my short four-lettered name. If I could change one thing, I would add some additional colors to choose from for the lined envelops. I would have ordered a navy blue toile if I could have. (Posted on 2/9/2017)

    Beautiful Classic Embossed Notes Review by Emily Dickinson
    My beautiful classic embossed notes just arrived, and I'm so pleased with the custom results. All my personal information was correct and embossed perfectly. The paper quality of the notes and envelopes was excellent, but I expected that since I've been a customer of American Stationery for many years. Using these products makes the customer look good because of the excellent quality of American Stationery products. I use these notes for many reasons: condolences, congratulations, keeping in touch and thank you's. Thanks again American Stationery for such a top-notch product. (Posted on 11/4/2015)

    Monogrammed note cards Review by K
    This was an idea I had to give to my daughter for her first wedding shower.. These embossed cards were perfect. Not over the top but classic.

The quality of the card was very good and I received exactly what I ordered and "thought" I was ordering. (Posted on 7/21/2015)

    Elegant Review by lckeldy
    I ordered these cards for our Wedding thank you cards because I didn't like the ones that match our wedding invitations. Wasn't sure how professional or how these would look but I took a chance. I'm very pleased with the outcome. There was a shortage, but they rectified that within a week. More elegant than expected and would definitely buy from American Stationery again. Bravo!!

    Love them! Review by Notecards
    The paper is weighty and feels expensive, the embossing is perfect. I feel as though anyone receiving one of these cards would be impressed with the quality. When I take the time to write a hand-written note, which I often do, a quality stationery makes it feel that much more delightful, and the words almost seem to have more meaning... (Posted on 1/24/2014)
    4 star Review by Cheryl
    The stationery is beautiful. The only negative, in my mind, was the choice of liners. I would have liked a soft taupe or matching ivory. I chose the one I thought was best of the choices available, but the look was not as elegant as I would have liked (Posted on 1/13/2014)

    Just beautiful! Review by ToriLynn
    This was a splurge for myself at Christmas time. The quality of paper and embossing is top notch! I love the colored envelope liner, but it's not quite the sage (green) shade I was expecting. It's a little on the turquiose side rather that toward the mossy (green) side of the color. Either way the, the package is just beautiful and I will use these notes with pride! (Posted on 1/2/2014)

    Exceeded expectations Review by Connie
    I always have note cards. Ran out of my very expensive ones and decided to try ordering from American stationery.
    I am truly eased with the quality of the email embossing.
    The card stock is very nice quality as well. Different from what I have had previously, but I am very pleased with it. I would not hesitate to order more and know I will. The price is reasonable enough to even purchase for gifts.
    I will look forward to sending others these very lovely cards. Everyone loves personalized gifts. (Posted on 12/26/2013)
