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

I like these cute little chit note cards to be just the ticket for short missives for thank you notes, reminders, or even for notes to add to a gifts. They are just the right size for quick notes, no matter what the reason is. PLUS you can choose their favorite design to add with your name AND you can also decide the font that would look best in the overall design of your chit card. What more could one want?

Love the venerable chits Review by Cathy
I ordered the venerable chits for my new granddaughter's arrival so her mom, my daughter would have something very nice to write her thank you notes on. I chose the princess crown and the pale pink (wish there were more ink options) I took alot of time picking out the font, etc b/c I wanted it to be perfect! They turned out beautifully and I couldn't be more pleased!! (Posted on 1/5/2019)

A nice way to drop a note with style. (Posted on 9/9/2017)
Love the venerable chits Review by cathy
I really love my order of venerable chits with the shell design. The only problem is the font on the envelope can't be changed and mine is too large for such a small envelope. I tried and tried to change it online but couldn't. That's the only disappointing part is that the return address looks out of place for a small envelope.

American Stationery response: In the future, please call customer service with this request. We are happy to make sizing adjustments to meet a customer's need. (Posted on 7/8/2017)
Elegant and Classy Review by WriterMama
I'm a writer and book reviewer. After I've interviewed an author, I always follow up with one of these lovely chits and I almost always get a 'thank you for the thank you.' Authors love these and so do I--the quality is remarkable, the ink, everything about them is beautifully well constructed. (Posted on 7/8/2017)

I've ordered these with the heart several times now. Adorable. (Posted on 3/8/2017)

Excellent Product Review by Ken
I was excited to receive this product and anxious to show them off. The Chits are on very nice quality paper and the printing was terrific. I also had the envelopes addressed and I am very pleased with the outcome. (Posted on 10/17/2016)
Cute and Simple Review by WriterMama
Hi really fell in love with these notes in the catalog and knew I needed to order for jotting off a quick thank you note. I wish the icon (I chose a stack of books) could be adjusted for size so it's more proportional to the text. Otherwise, amazing paper quality and love the raised ink. I also had the envelopes printed with address and that turned out beautifully. (Posted on 9/10/2016)

Even Better Than The Preview Review by Happy Camper
Product consistent with the order preview. What the preview can't show, however, is the fine quality of the paper used and the expert craftsmanship of the finished product. Thank you for the beautiful stationery. (Posted on 11/14/2015)

beautiful product Review by JeannaTV
I really love these chits! Perfect for a little thank-you note or quick hello. I do wish that the shipping wasn't so high. I would probably order more products if the shipping was more reasonable. (Posted on 8/3/2015)
Great Notecards Review by peregrine30
Love the size, card stock, and endless choices of fonts and designs. My only (and so minor!) complaint is that there isn't a matching envelope liner for the french blue ink. Otherwise, these are perfect! (Posted on 6/15/2015)

Overall very good Review by Anne
I love the chits that I ordered. They are exactly what I expected. I appreciated the number of design choices and colors offered. I would definitely order them in the future.
There were two negative aspects of the entire transaction. One is getting the same number of envelopes rather than a few extra. The other is the high cost of shipping. Most companies offer free or reduced shipping no matter the amount being spent. I thought that 12.95 was costly for a shipping fee for items that were not heavy.

Love these! Review by Mr. Anderson
I ordered the Venerable Chits on a lark and absolutely love them. They are the perfect size for a quick note, as I usually don't have a lot to say. I can't wait to order more with different icons! (Posted on 7/3/2014)
