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.

The quality of the printing, the accuracy of my order, the triangular envelope flap, the texture and quality of the 100% cotton paper, all have me singing praises for American StatIonery.

I am on my tenth set of 100% cotton letterpress stationery, and each and every one has been stellar.
In addition to the quality of the actual card stock and envelopes, and the precise printing job, I have dealt with the most courteous group of people possible in customer service. Thank YOU American Stationery! (Posted on 12/21/2018)

Great Personalized Cards Review by Jenny Willis
I love my new elegant cards--I picked cream paper (white also available), a very good-looking font from the many options, a charming little pinecone from the many design options, and green ink--I think almost anyone could find a font, design and color to express themselves. The paper is thick cotton and the printing very clear and perfect and the price reasonable. (Posted on 1/2/2017)
Love the feel Review by DrSuccess
This is the second time I have purchased this stationary. I love the way it feels. I like sending notes with special touch so people really get the intent that I was thinking about them. (Posted on 6/25/2016)
Better than I expected!, Review by Colorado
As a southern girl I love thank you notes, especially high quality thank you notes and these don't disappoint. The quality is beautiful. The choices were fabulous. I bought ecru paper with a topiary in brighter green and lined envelopes and return address. They feel so expensive but were a good value when I purchased during a sale. I would definitely buy again. (Posted on 6/14/2016)
great product with great ordering Review by Barbara
I'm very pleased with my letterpress folded notes. The website's ability to show online views of design as I created it, and show changes as I sampled a couple of typefaces is great. (Posted on 5/24/2016)
Very good. Classy Review by Formal Writer
The paper is nice but a bit too thick. The imprint or letterpress is excellent. I think it can be done on slightly thinner paper. I must have ordered the print on the return address too big as it looks too big for the flap but fits well. A good job was done On them. (Posted on 5/20/2016)

Perfect! Review by Frank M
Great company that never disappoints. (Posted on 6/22/2015)
Wife is happy Review by Firsttime
Ordered a custom stationery set for my 1st anniversary. I am working overseas so I had the item shipped "express". The stationery arrived the day before our anniversary (Great!). However, it was someone else's order (Not great). My wife called the company and the problem was correct within the week. When our stationery arrived, she said, "the quality is amazing". So if she's happy, I'm happy. (Posted on 5/10/2015)
splendid Review by Redzapf
the letterpress notes I ordered are absolutely beautiful. They are pricey, but if you're doing custom stationary, why not get the best? It's not much more than the thermo ink, but infinitely more sophisticated. (Posted on 5/9/2015)

Exactly as promised. Classy notecards. Fast delivery. (Posted on 1/4/2015)
