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.

Customer Reviews

Very pleased. Simple and classy. Affordable!
These invitations, thank you cards, and RSVP cards were very easy to personalize. They are simple and classy, but still very elegant. The thermography really makes it pop. Review by Teddi / (Posted on 2/15/2016)
Colors were beautiful!
The shimmery grey background is beautiful and looks rich. The red writing turned out to be the perfect color as well, and the whole invitation looks classy! We love it! Review by Nik / (Posted on 4/22/2015)
Wedding invites
Beautiful invitations for price! I love them but the only thing I didn't like was having to stick all the cards on top the navy. I didn't realize it all came separately. Review by Lolbabypink985 / (Posted on 10/22/2014)
Nice Cross Between Formal and Casual
I ordered this in two colors and omitted the date in the lower corner. It turned out really well, especially since the formal names and nicknames of the bride and groom could be included.

American Wedding was really great about sending samples, but my only complaint is that they won't send samples with the ink colors you are considering which is a big deal since some of the colors (navy, gray, etc.) are in halftones on the ink colors card and most computers cannot get exact coloring to show in examples. When I got a random sample that I thought must be the kelly green, it was actually the hunter green I'd considered so I'm glad I didn't order it. and ended up going with "safer" choices. Even then, the navy is almost black.

Also, be aware that with any of the cards with the attached backing, your postage will be for 2 ounces (70cents) and the response cards are folded instead of single card as is the usual. But, for the money and service, these cards can't be beat. Review by Vicky / (Posted on 8/8/2014)
At first, I was frustrated that I couldn't find the exact accessories in my colors for my invites, but I actually just formatted my invites to be able to add my own! I bought tiny satin roses at Hobby Lobby and glued them on to a string of twine and attached it to the invite. The fact that this gave me a chance to create my own canvas was awesome. The customization options were phenomenal and the price was obviously unbeatable. Review by Kristen / (Posted on 7/19/2014)
