Before paper invitations became the norm, hosts petitioned for party attendance by going door to door, making announcements at town meetings, or speechlessly slapping prospective guests in the face with confetti-trimmed gloves. Celebrate the evolution of social customs with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $50 toward customized cards and invitations from City Card Shop
City Card Shop's card-crafting gurus develop personalized announcements and invitations for birthday celebrations, weddings, and save-the-date gatherings. Party planners can rally friends and family with RSVP postcards that look like Hawaii, Las Vegas, or Disney boarding passes (100 for $2 each) and detailed passport invitations (100 for $4 each) allure guests to momentous events such as weddings and superhero consortiums. Imitation baby driver's licenses (100 for $65 total) announce newborn stats—including height, weight, and 40-yard dash times—and formal graduation announcements (100 for $2.25 each) vibrantly exhibit school colors. A skilled graphic-design team is also available to handle any inquiries and requests concerning retina-catching imagery. Party sets are also available.
To ensure invitations land in mailboxes and not the open jaws of a yawning hippopotamus, City Card Shop can fashion certain invitations into self-mailing cards that contain guest names and addresses.
