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.

Best in the business Review by Bill
This is the 4th time I've ordered correspondence cards from American Stationery.

Occasionally I price shop and compare to others. Their prices appear better than any competitor's and the quality is topnotch.

Until my next order... (Posted on 3/31/2017)
Well done but keep in mind Review by Steve Scot
The cards are beautiful. They are rectangular to an extent that is a bit harder to gauge from the image. Still really nice. The print is also a bit more matte than the picture indicates but they also allow notes from two different people on the same card as opposed to a square. Likely will order again (Posted on 3/15/2017)
My product arrived exactly as it appeared on my online order and I was happy. Review by AG
I am a repeat order a number of times. I find these cards are perfect to write a note of sympathy or condolence, to say thank you for a special kindness, to wish a belated happy birthday or any other need which might arise. Sending notes is becoming a lost art, and I am grateful that those who receive mine are always made glad and can read them over and over again. (Posted on 3/13/2017)

Perfect Review by Lois
Purchased 4 sets for my teenage grandsons who live in Switzerland. Have purchased them before. They are the perfect size to write a short note of thanks and the quality of the paper is terrific and the monogramming beautiful. I've come back to your products for other gifts too.
Thank you. (Posted on 2/26/2016)
Wonderful, as always Review by Old Indiana friend
Elegant high quality product. Timely, efficient service.

My grandmother gave me my first set of your stationery when I was a schoolboy to encourage me to write my thank you notes after Christmas. I just turned 65 and I'm still using American Stationery. I learned my lessons then, and they haven't changed. (Posted on 2/25/2016)

This was exactly what I was looking for. I now give my direct reports who are departing to other jobs or did an exceptional job a handwritten note of appreciation. It has been very well received. I'll be purchasing a second set shortly. (Posted on 2/24/2016)
Love these cards. Review by Greg Murtha
For years I have been a fan of the personal, hand written card. With the emergence of electronic communication I am afraid the fine art of the personal touch is fading, however, my friends at American Stationary have provided a handsome way to hang onto real, personal communication, at a reasonable rate. Thank you AS for a job well done. (Posted on 2/24/2016)
A nice gift! Review by LKL

Haappy, happy, happpy! Review by AG
I have used American Stationery a number pf times - for gifts and for my own use. the new Slender Hand cards are perfect for all my needs. Whether it be a sympathy note, or a thank you, there is space enough to send a meaningful message that looks dignified and heartfelt. Their prompt delivery is also a plus. Just wait until I am down to my last 4 cards and then re-order. Before I run out, the new cards have arrived. (Posted on 10/3/2015)

Confident, bold look Review by Ellen
i started searching for a high quality engraved, peronalized note card, specifically from Cranes. But along the way i found American Stationery, and as it was a fraction of the price and available in less than half the time, i decided to give it a try. I ordered several types and absolutely love all of them! I ordered this for a male, with navy border and printing, siimilar to the "John Andrew Richard" in the photo. The look is exactly what i wanted...understated but bold and confident. I will be ordering more! (Posted on 5/25/2015)
Excellent, as usual! Review by Mike
I have used American Stationery products since high school (over 50 years ago) and have never had one issue with the quality or service. Excellent quality and craftsmanship at an affordable price! My current order continues the tradition. (Posted on 5/17/2015)
great cards Review by Beau Lettrist
Sometimes you want a note card that fills up quickly. Granted, it is always a possibility to write bigger, but I like these cards for the way they allow three sentences to look like an entire note. Those with more to say can always write a little smaller- but the option of filling the space is nice. The quality of the card stock is unimpeachable and the lettering adds just the right dignified touch. (Posted on 4/26/2015)
Beautiful stationary at a great price Review by GABBB
This stationary is so nice looking that I can't wait to use it. I still have to use up my "old" stationary before I get to this new material. I like the wider look, as I like to WRITE a lot on my notes.

This is well priced and high quality. (Posted on 3/25/2015)
Hubby loved his cards Review by Lifeisgreat!
I have been ordering note cards from A.S. For years. My husband just loves his masculine slender note card as the art of thank you notes is a dying breed. He always gets awesome feedback from his gorgeous cards with his name on them. They came in quickly and done perfectly as usual. Thank you America Signature! (Posted on 3/20/2015)

perfect Review by old fogie
For a 20yr. old grandson who will soon be job hunting..I want to assure him that he'll stand out for writing a thank you note, by hand, even in today's high tech computer age.
I think these are very nice looking and will last forever. I had his name, versus monogram--again, to make a positive impression with contacts and potential employers.
The letters seemed larger than I expected, though. (Posted on 12/8/2014)
