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.

The used chalkboard and eraser look of the Helena wedding invitation is enticing and easy to remember. With its authentic gold foil debossed border and digital printing on its classy background, this is an excellent choice for a bride who is mindful, but undecided. The front gives the wedding details, and the back is available for its own special message or special sentiment, and it is a perfect way to make an impression on folkloric families who believe in craft over creativity and creativity over tradition. With the lines of time already drawn on this altrustic artsy-craftsy and funky invitation, it exists on a level all its own.

Customer Reviews

Thick quality paper, delivered fast, no issues! The foil stands out more in person than online, and is a brighter gold color. Highly recommend these invites! Review by Jen / (Posted on 4/8/2016)
Very Pretty
I liked these invitations a lot. I got the silver foil along the edge and it was striking. They also shipped very quickly, I received them only a few days after ordering. Overall I was very happy with the product. Review by Roo / (Posted on 7/13/2015)
When we first received our invitations, there were extra lines printed on them. I called Customer Service, and they immediately rectified the situation. They sent new ones immediately. Now I am absolutely IN LOVE with my invitations! Review by Caitlin / (Posted on 1/20/2015)
Happy with our Decision
Everyone has that these were very cute and the best they had ever received. We are very happy.

The one hiccup that we had was that we ordered the RSVP cards and quickly realized that the persons filling them out would need a white marker to fill them out due to the dark background. So that was $100 wasted. Straight to the trash can. Review by Bink / (Posted on 9/18/2014)
Helena wedding invitations
I am so pleased with my Helena wedding invitations. I was amazed how easy it was to format the invitations and how flexible formatting was. I was able to take out the traditional wedding language and switch it out for something a little more fun and offbeat. I highly recommend any foil stamping it adds a bit off class to any design. I received numerous compliments over these invitations. Review by yetifelix / (Posted on 8/13/2014)
