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

Attractive, quality stationery reasonably priced Review by Another winner
A longtime customer, the recent 50% sale on all American Stationery products was too good for me to pass up. The stationery arrived a week or so later. It was yet another high quality product, the monogram choices and colors yielding a sophisticated design. I'm invariably pleased with their stationery. (Posted on 10/16/2017)

Just what I wanted Review by Cambo
This is exactly what I wanted. The paper stock is great, the thermography is what I wanted and the hand done border is perfect. I like everything and I'm picky. (Posted on 5/21/2017)
Just what I wanted Review by Cambo
These will be perfect for "thank you" notes and for touching base. The paper is great, the thremography, the hand done edges. They're all great and I'm picky. (Posted on 5/21/2017)
will definitely buy again Review by jen
beautiful product and the turnaround time was very quick. The border of my cards was not exactly what I was hoping for, but fine non the less. I will definitely order from you again. (Posted on 1/8/2017)

Excellent service & quality product Review by Paper Girl
Ordering on line was very easy and the quality and speed with which the order was received exceeded expectations.
That both my orders came boxed - even the business cards - was a bonus. Only criticism is that the border color of my note cards was not quite as vivid as the monogram color.
I would not hesitate to order more products including personalized stationery for gifts. (Posted on 9/9/2016)

Almost too pretty to use Review by Beautiful hand bordered cards
I absolutely love my new hand bordered correspondence cards. I got the border and liner in navy and my monogram and return address in orange. They look amazing! So much so I almost don't want to use them! But I do and will enjoy writing thank you notes on these beautiful cards. Received them quickly for a customized order. Very pleased. (Posted on 5/9/2014)
Good Looking Stationery for the Price Review by Leslie
Pressed for time before Christmas, I did these cards on line - even decided on size of the monogram. It was easy to do - very consumer friendly website - and they came very quickly. I was extremely happy with what I received - and they went to my daughter for Christmas. She loved them! They are a nice quality and look more expensive than they really are. I also got free shipping, and should have ordered more. (Posted on 1/14/2014)
The Perfect Correspondence Cards Review by Emma
Love the size, color options, and monogram quality, but was disappointed with the weight of the card stock. The basic stock was a lot thinner than I expected--I'll upgrade to the heavier card stock next time. (Posted on 1/13/2014)
Loved it! Review by CB9
Got just what I wanted for Christmas thank you notes. (Posted on 1/11/2014)
DYO cards are great Review by Kim
love these cards!! color and monogram are perfect!
the only negative is that the glue from the envelope is a little cumbersome and needs to be wiped off before you send a card.... (Posted on 11/20/2013)
