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.

As usual, the paper quality, design, and delivered cards met or exceeded all of my expectations. I used gold ink for the first time and it turned out beautifully and looks very elegant.

Impressive Cards! Review by Bonnie
I purchased these cards for my son, a high school football coach, and I used the football player logo. I know there are times when he writes personal notes as opposed to texts and messages. They are heavier than I expected, and they look very professional. I received exactly what I ordered and hoped to receive! (Posted on 8/17/2019)

I'm a wine lover so that bunch of grapes in purple ink was just perfect!

Very nice produce Review by mh
Product came as described. Font a little bigger than represented on the order template but not enough to really make a big difference. Next time I would order a size down from what looks right on the screen. Over all an easy site to use and prompt delivery. Would order again. (Posted on 2/5/2017)

These correspondence cards of are of the highest quality and exactly what I wanted.I had a set of these years ago and used them all up and had resorted to boxed thank you cards which were fine but were lacking the uniqueness and design that these correspondence cards have.

Outstanding All Purpose Notes Review by Keep on Writing
Have used these for YEARS - and keep buying more! Everything from business notes to sympathy notes, forwarding donations to be acknowledged to a 3rd party - no matter what you need to write, these are a size to store easily, to fit whatever is the need, "expandable" - use front and back, and they always look sharp. Printed or cursive, the message always fits and the recipient often comments on the paper product. And best value for the price in the whole catalog!! Ordered 150, I'll be back for more! (Posted on 12/24/2013)

Absolutely Lovely Review by S E G.
We have ordered the design your own in the gift enclosure and personal correspondence card. The weight of the card is very nice. The envelopes rich and not thin either. The ivory card with gold printing in Engravure text is very noticeable & prominent. Also the purple butterfly & script text is nice for informal cards. Would definitely recommend both products & will buy again. (Posted on 4/10/2008)
