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 fast-becoming 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.

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.


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

The first ink color you choose is included in the price of your order (invitation, accessory cards and envelopes).  You may choose up to 2 ink colors per printed item (i.e. you can choose black & espresso for your invitation, and then gold & silver for your RSVP card, etc.).  If you use the same 2 ink colors throughout your entire invitation ensemble, you will only be charged once, across all of your printed pieces (i.e. if you choose red & gold for your invitation, RSVP card and outer envelope, you will only be charged once for that 2nd ink color).

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.
  • 3rd ink and above: $20.00 one time charge for each additional ink color chosen.

*NOTE: If you have selected accessory cards, you may see 1 additional ink color charge in your total.  Don't worry, you can adjust these ink colors accordingly to your preferences when you start customizing your accessory cards.

Customer Reviews

Beautiful and high quality
Definitely a great purchase! I am very satisfied. The background color is, actually, a different cardboard and that gives a more elegant and quality feel. The timing for manufacturing and shipping was fast. Review by Bianca / (Posted on 9/12/2018)
Trouble with sizing
The invitations were beautiful and the printing was high quality, however the background color is actually a separate piece of cardstock that comes with adhesive tabs (really? They couldn't make it one piece or put the pieces together to save work?)

At first this seemed like a good thing because we thought we'd be able to print our additional information (registry, direction map) on the silver piece, but it turns out it doesn't fit in any of our printers (We have and HP and a Brother). Paper jam, every time! Even if it had fit in the Brother--it would have been printed sideways because it's 7 1/2 by 5 1/2 instead of standard size.

American wedding would have more success if they made their invitations 8 1/2 by 5 1/2, because as it is (I ruined several envelopes and so had to buy some more online in 81/2 by 6) they rattle around in a standard size envelope.

I don't know if anyone else has had trouble but besides those few things I was very impressed with invitations and their rapid service.

Wonderful, elegant invitations
We are absolutely enthralled with my wedding invitations. Not only are they exactly as shown (if not better), they are also completely elegant. We are also extremely pleased with the customer service we received. We needed to change something on the reception card, but had already submitted and paid for the order. The following morning my mom called to see if we could change it. Not only did they change it for us, the woman we talked to went through all the components of the invitation and made sure everything was spelled right and made sense. I am thoroughly impressed with this company, and highly recommend it! Review by BridalBliss / (Posted on 7/11/2014)
Beautiful and Classy Invitations
I absolutely loved the way these invitations came out! I wanted something simple, yet classy, for our wedding and these were both. The feel of these are great, not cheap feeling at all, and I really loved how the printing is a bit raised off the invite. I paid to have them assembled and it's definitely worth the extra money. They exceeded my expectations and will recommend this site to all brides to be! Review by Mary / (Posted on 7/3/2014)
These are honestly gorgeous! I found similar designs on other websites that were double the price! Trust me, save the money and go with these! They look and feel expensive and elegant. You won't be disappointed. Review by JP / (Posted on 5/29/2014)
Love these!
PROS: We don't even know where to begin! First and foremost, extremely prompt service and was promised to us exactly on time. The raised lettering and design were extremely elegant and wowed our guests. They thought we paid a fortune for invites (clearly not!).

CONS: Beware when you buy these invites, they only come with ONE envelope! We found a white envelope that would fit from another website but I've searched high and low, no ecru envelopes in that size! Not a pain because thankfully I found them but wish they would have offered a double envelope for such an elegant invitation! Review by K&V / (Posted on 5/3/2014)
Classic Elegance
I absolutely love my invitations! The white metallic adds just the right touch for the simple, classic and elegant look I was going for. If I had to do it all over again I would always choose The America Wedding! Thank you! Review by Mrs. W / (Posted on 5/1/2014)
Great product!
Everyone has been commenting on how beautiful our invitations are! They were easy to put together and great quality (saved us a lot of money too!) The only thing I could say about the invitations were that some of the envelopes had dried glue that made te envelope feel a little rough. Not a huge deal for me since it was the outer envelope and it didn't effect the appearance of the invitations but it was a little surpising that a good amount of envelopes had this. Also some of our envelopes had black smudges on them. Again not a huge deal for me but if I was a pickier person I can see that being an issue.

I would still order from your company in the future though! Review by Wedding invitations / (Posted on 4/21/2014)
These invitations are simply gorgeous! I have already mailed all of mine out and have gotten so many compliments on how beautiful they are. I ordered a black backing and metallic white top later with black and light blue thermography font. My only suggestion would be to pay the extra $40 to have the backing assembled - I did not do this in an attempt to save some cash and I wish I would have!!! Also I somehow messed up my order by ordering double the envelopes...the first 175 are apparently free? American Wedding - if you read this please know that that part of the ordering process was somehow confusing for me and I think I paid $100 extra for a bunch of extra envelopes I don't need :( ... Other that this I highly recommend these specific invites and also ordering from American Wedding! :) Review by KellyS / (Posted on 4/16/2014)
Great value!
Just got my invites and couldn't be happier! The paper itself looks very high-quality in the printing is beautiful. Note: because this invitation has two layers, the invitation comes in two pieces. You will either need to attach the layers yourself with the glue dots the company will send you or pay the $40 fee for the company to assemble the invitations if you want them to arrive with the backing already on. I paid the $40 fee and was happy I did so. Regardless the product is still a great value, especially when purchased with their 40% off coupons. Review by June bride / (Posted on 4/2/2014)
I am very very happy with my invitations. They look beautiful and classy, a few people have called me about them. I am very pleased with the price and how quickly they arrived. The only thing is that I didn't know the backing paper doesn't come attached but you can either pay the fee and have them do it for you or they send you the tape and you can do it yourself. I only ordered 50 so it wasn't a hard job to do it myself. Definitely not a hard task. I chose a silver backing with the white paper and turquoise color font. They printed my address on all envelopes with the thermography and they looked amazing. Thanks! Review by Karla / (Posted on 3/21/2014)
Gorgeous and Fast
We ordered the white on black, which was stunningly beautiful. We also paid for the assembly, which is where the American Wedding glues the white paper to the black paper - I highly recommend paying the extra $30 for this service as I couldn't imagine aligning the white paper on top of the black paper perfectly like they did. From ordering to receiving was about two weeks. In the order received, we were missing 25 outer envelopes. When I contacted the American Wedding about the missing envelopes, they immediately placed an order for the 25 envelopes and we had them within a week. Review by Kristin / (Posted on 3/19/2014)
So happy and would highly recommend!
I loved my invitations! The quality of the paper, embossment and beauty of the invitation was top notch. We invited 190 people, and got countless complements. I would recommend this company to any bride. The quality was not compromised for the value and cost! Great find :) Review by octoberbride / (Posted on 3/10/2014)
Beautiful wedding invitations!
I got a lot of compliments on my wedding invitations : ) assembly was required (for 2 layer) but easy to do. Review by Cjhearts83 / (Posted on 3/8/2014)
I absolutely love my initiations, they arrived as promised and to my surprise they were much more beautiful that I originally anticipated. I loved being able to customize them; I got the wording that I wanted as well as the fonts for a fraction of the price other places are charging. The paper quality is very impressive, and I love the metallic sheen. I keep getting compliments from my guests, along with “you must of spent a fortune”. Review by Gina / (Posted on 2/27/2014)
I LOVE my invitations. They turned out beautiful. They arrived quickly and were easy to assemble. My only complaint was there wasn't an option to get a white invitation that wasn't metallic so I went with a cream. I think they turned out better than I had expected. Review by NickeyB / (Posted on 2/17/2014)
Even Better Than I Expected!
My invitations just arrived today, and I could not be happier! First, they arrived in only one week's time from the day I ordered them, which was incredibly fast. Second, they are wonderful quality. It is nice thick paper (and mine is beautifully and perfectly sparkly--I ordered the metallic white with the silver backing) and the thermography raised lettering is beautiful. Third, the colors are gorgeous! I ordered mine with colored turquoise ink and it looks very, very similar to the color shown in the online preview, only even prettier! I am so happy with my invitations and will be recommending The American Wedding to all of my engaged friends! Review by Renee / (Posted on 1/28/2013)
