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

Great notes Review by NHinNH
We love these notes, and although they are called "Informal" we find them so nice and "formal" for an impressive note or thank-you card. Lovely colors of ink to choose from. Envelopes very lovely also. High quality product all the way around and great service. (Posted on 12/1/2021)

Tastefully elegant note cards always in style Review by Vero Barb
I am very pleased with the folded note cards/envelopes with return address that I ordered. I'm probably old-fashioned, but I believe a handwritten note is still a thoughtful thing to do and these notecards add an statement of subtle elegance and good taste. Ordering was a breeze and I'd re-order without hesitation. (Posted on 5/4/2021)
Lovely cards Review by PAM
I am very pleased with the Debossed Panel Informal Notes. There is nothing like a written note, especially when it's written on such beautiful note cards. I purchased the white cards with the navy initials that are slightly raised and add a bit of elegance. (Posted on 4/26/2021)

Elegant, great value Review by DCA
I have used this same debossed panel notecard for years. With the "Mr. and Mrs...." in raised black ink they are the perfect way to send wedding or other congratulations from the two of us. At upwards of $5 per storebought card, these have saved me a ton of money, and they are always handy. Love them! (Posted on 4/28/2018)
Another beautiful high-quality product Review by Happy
Over the years we have bought our four granddaughters personalized informal notes from you. We selected a different style of script for each girl. We were delighted with every purchase.

Very Nice Stationary Review by banderson510
I ordered these note cards for my daughter to write thank you notes for gifts she is receiving prior to her wedding. The quality of the paper is very nice and her monogramming was perfect.

Love these notes Review by Grandma
We have given these lovely notes to each of our granddaughters when they reach their junior year in high school. The girls think the notes are both pretty and practical. I think having their names elegantly printed on the stationery not only encourages them to write thank-you notes, it also contributes to their sense of self-worth and individuality. (Posted on 2/25/2016)

I bought these notes, in the white paper with hot pink monogram, as a gift for a special friend. They are so lovely!

Good product - difficult site Review by "Bill"
When I read the review by Clark - I thought perhaps I might have posted it some time ago - then read that it was current. I like the products very much. This order was perfect! In the past, I have found one batch of envelopes that did not have enough glue - had to use some "Elmer's"to seal them. But I agree the site is not user-friendly, especially as to re-ordering, as mentioned by Clark. A previous order arrived with wrong font, (my fault) that due to the site format, I completely missed. Be careful when ordering> (Posted on 8/8/2014)

American Stationery provides a high quality product at a really affordable price point. My husband has always been a BIG letter/note/thank you writer and believes strongly in how much people enjoy receiving letters and notes. His mother used to buy him stationery every Christmas but since she passed away it is now up to me. I encourage my daughters to follow in his footsteps and also buy these as gifts for our teachers.
