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.

  • 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.

Customer Reviews

The invitations were nicely printed. However, we had no idea that that middle panel wasn't glued to the fold. That should have been clearly stated with the description! We knew we had to place the bow on the card, however we had no idea we had to glue the fold. Assembling the invitations was a lot of WORK and took a team of freinds!!!! Otherwise, the product was great! Review by Akisha / (Posted on 3/24/2014)
Great product
But I would advise to have American Wedding assemble the invitations. It's a lot of work, especially if you ordered a lot of them. Review by Steph / (Posted on 1/10/2014)
My guests loved the invitation! I did have 2 issues though.
My guests absolutely loved the invitation! The American Wedding was very easy to work with! I did have 2 issues. One, the left side of every single envelope did not stick, only the right side. I had to glue each and every invitation closed. And two, I went to mail them, and the invitations cost $2.50 each to mail due to the size of the bow (I had 250 invitations to mail). I read online before purchasing that there would be extra postage. I was not aware the invitations would be considered "parcels" by the Post Office. I ended up removing the bow, using a glue dot to keep it closed, and placed a pearl where the bow was. They turned out beautiful. Review by Kristy Sue / (Posted on 8/27/2013)
