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.

Lovely quality note cards! Review by Nat
I ordered note cards with the "dancing horse" theme for my wife, who loves everything horsey. She could not have been happier with the quality of these cards. (Posted on 12/12/2020)
Perfect Christmas Gift Review by Margie
My daughter-in-law loves the cards, and especially the Kona lined envelopes. She had actually asked for another box of note cards as she was down to her last in the previous box. I couldn't match the old ones exactly, but chose these with the seashore theme and she was pleased. (Posted on 12/30/2019)

Excellent Quality ~ Dramatic & Beautiful! Review by NANCY
This note is an excellent choice for a gift... I sent them recently in turquoise to a friend in Florida! (Posted on 10/10/2016)
absolutelly wonderful gift! Review by MyMothersDaughter
I purchased a box of the bordered cards as a parting gift for a friend. She is moving to Saudi so I chose the orange border and brown name and palm tree. When they arrived, they were even more gorgeous than expected. The name and palm tree have a shimmer to them which makes them just so high end, and the orange of the border is a beautiful tangerine color that is lovely. My friend LOVES this stationary, was really over the moon with these cards. Now I want a box for myself. Money well spent. Beautiful product, will shop again for sure. (Posted on 6/25/2016)

I gave this stationery to my sister too (I gave her the DYO slender correspondence cards as well) when she bought her condo. Love the color options. She really likes them both. I have ordered many DYO stationery options from American Stationery and have always loved all of them. Just make sure you proof read well!!! (Posted on 2/25/2016)
