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.
All mix and match invitations are ordered in increments of 25.
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"
RSVP card w/ envelope: 4.25"x5.50"
Large Enclosure Card: 4.25"x6.50"
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:
*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.
What is Assembly?
We offer assembly of most Mix & Match invitations that are layered (for example the Folio Pockets, Blooms, Cecilia 2-Layer Invitation, etc). Assembly means that we will adhere each layer of the invitation together. If you order a Folio Pocket or Bloom, all of your layers will be mounted directly onto the Pocket or Bloom, unless otherwise specified. Assembly does not include inserting your invitation and accessory cards directly into your envelopes.
We do not assemble any accessories such as ribbon, seals, etc. If you are assembling yourself, we recommend a strong, thin double sided adhesive to attach the printing layer to the backing layer and then to adhere both layers to the Folio Pockets and Blooms. Please DO NOT use any type of "wet" glue, since you don't want the cardstocks getting damp or wet which can lead to wrinkling and/or buckling, and in some cases we have found with rubber-cement glue, the actual letters falling off your invitation!
