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

Love these cards Review by Carol
I purchased white cards and the periwinkle looks fabulous on them. I have ordered many cards from American Stationary and loved them all. These are a little more whimsical than the traditional set I usually use. (Posted on 3/31/2021)

Perfect Delivery! Review by Mac
I ordered the monogramed cards with the return address and they came perfectly as ordered. Nothing was smeared and it was perfectly packaged. I couldn't be happier.

When I run out I will definitely order these again. They are so pretty and professional. Very classy! (Posted on 7/13/2015)
Excellent product Review by Judy

Love the iris liners! Review by Lisa
I love the look and feel of all of my American Stationery product. Only issue I had is that the iris lined envelopes had a pink ink smear on the front in the address area. I decided not to hassle with return and hope that writing the address over it would make it inconspicuous. (Posted on 3/24/2015)

I LOVE my order! Review by Virginia
Thank you! I was so pleased when I opened my order. I actually said WOW out loud (although home alone) when I saw how beautiful and classy all three designs were. This design is for me, the others are Valentine's Day gifts for my daughters.
I am writing notes I don't need to write just for the JOY of using my new note cards.
I can't remember when I've been so happy with ANYTHING I've ordered on line!
Thank you. (Posted on 2/9/2015)

The Best Review by Sunnye
I've been a customer of American Stationery's for years and have always found their products and service to be top notch. I particularly like the quality of the stationery. The weight, texture, colors and design are especially pleasing.
I've never had an issue the required contacting customer service, but with a product so superior I can't imagine that it would be less than superb.
Products have always arrived promptly and there has never been a problem with personalization. I intend to remain a customer and unhesitatingly give the company my highest recommendation. (Posted on 10/18/2014)

Very nice, but envelopes smudged ; ( Review by Harriet
I'm very happy with the cards, but the envelopes arrived with a pink smudge right in the center of every one! The customer service lady was very nice - I sent a pic from my phone, and I'm now awaiting new envelopes. I think the liner ink was the culprit! (Posted on 7/24/2014)

satisfactory Review by acw
I was hopeful that paper and printing were going to be a better quality overall. It is fine - but not great. DOn't know that I will order again. (Posted on 7/21/2014)
Good quality, color true periwinkle Review by MM
The color is brighter than pictured -- it is a true periwinkle. Brighter and more intense than I expected. Very pretty, but I would do a different color for font if I'd realized this.

Quality really nice. I'll order from here again. Monogram is lovely. (Posted on 7/12/2014)

It timed out on me twice as I was trying to select. Review by Patti
Thought the prices were a little high. Because I was trying to review and choose, it was taking me some time and I lost the order and had to re-type everything which was a pain. I like the quality though. (Posted on 6/9/2014)
