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.

Gift for my sister-in-law who loves your products. I got the French Blue for her because it reminded me of the expensive jewelry store box. I chose her whole name across the top and a return address on the envelopes. I'm sure she'll appreciate these beautiful cards. (Posted on 2/24/2017)

Great purchase Review by These are lovely!
These are lovely cards. The colors did not seem to match when I ordered, but I choose the same color name and luckily I did because they match perfectly although it did not appear that way. I wish I had ordered an additional 25 at the same time--my only complaint and that was my fault! (Posted on 12/6/2016)
Good quality color paler than expected Review by Daughter
The cards and liners are good quality. The blue is paler than it appears in the advertisements and personalized online sample. (Posted on 11/14/2015)

Very Nice! Review by Greenfam
I ordered these for thank you notes for my daughter. She is expecting a baby boy and French blue with her monogram was perfect. (Posted on 10/10/2015)
Thanks for great customer service. Review by Writing fan
I was disappointed in the color of the monogram on my informals...not at all a match with the border, which was what I thought I had ordered. After speaking with a customer service representative, I returned one of the cards with a letter expressing my dismay at the finished product. Today I received a complete re-do of the cards. That kind of customer care is unusual in this day & age and I very much appreciate your valuing the relationship AND the quality of your work enough to print a new set of informals for me. Thank you. (Posted on 9/5/2015)
Very pretty Review by Didi

Beautiful Review by Penelope
The correspondence cards are so beautiful and elegant. I love the
