In our email age, old-fashioned written correspondence is a refreshing throwback, like drinking a soda made with real sugar or watching the president hand someone a sword. Write a thank-you note to the past with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of cards and personalized stationery from Fabulous Stationery, an online paper boutique.
Fabulous Stationery's aesthetic experts employ their artistic minds to create and customize hundreds of pieces of quirky, modern stationery. More than 1,500 designs dance around Fabulous Stationery's amenable website to herald every conceivable occasion or convey any message. Sets of note cards boast space on the front to announce new births, recent engagements, or future snacks ($35+ for 20). The bevy of designs encourages casual calligraphers to scrawl eloquent well wishes beneath a bright ladybug ($45) or to cloak an annoyed treatise about corn nuts in a colorful tableau of hyacinths ($35). The stationery purveyors print return addresses on the back of each card and include free sets of back-windowed envelopes to delicately display contact information.
Fabulous Stationery also maintains a One Dollar Card Shop for shoppers to choose from a variety of modern greeting cards for special occasions such as a birthday, a thank you, and more. Several styles also run on 100 percent recycled paper to give card senders the ability to hug trees with one arm while slinging note cards with the other.
