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.

Customer Reviews

Gorgeous invites, strange packing
I was thrilled when I received my wedding invitations! They truly are gorgeous. A couple of disappointments though. First of all, the packaging itself was very poor. They were sort of all crammed into a box and portions of them were wrapped in what seemed to be saran wrap. There also seemed to be some sort of granule substance mixed in with parts of the invitations and I found myself having to wipe off many of the invitations. There were a few envelopes that had so much of the granules in them that I was unable to use them. The second thing I was disappointed about was that on some of my invitations the printing on the second page was done poorly. The black branches had bled a little bit, so they were not a fine and straight line. I had no choice but to use them to send to guests though, because I wouldn't have had enough invitations otherwise. If I had had a longer timeline to work with, I might have contacted The American Wedding to ask for them to be redone, but I just didn't have time to wait for new invitations.

Overall, I was very happy with the invitations. They arrived very quickly, about 2 weeks after I ordered them. They are very cute and unique in design and I have received a lot of compliments on them. They were easy to fold and put together. And they were very affordable. I would recommend this invitation and this company to others. Review by Radshok / (Posted on 8/1/2013)
