Although tying a bow made of your own hair around someone's gift is one way to show you care, today's Groupon offers a more sanitary way to add a personal touch. For $12, you get $30 worth of personalized, customizable stationery, invitations, cards, notepads, and more from PosePrints.
PosePrints is the mind child of mother-daughter team Denise and Jen, who are known to uncontrollably shudder at the sight of generic cards. Each customized card allow you to transform your likeness and up to one other likeness (only two figures can inhabit the same card) into rosy, illustrated caricatures that are darling enough to grace the cover of any greeting. You can assemble your paper doppelganger from a selection of hairstyles and colors, eye shapes and expressions, outfits, accessories, and more. Men, women, kids, and babies are all available to construct, mad-doctor-style.
Complement your cartooned self with more than 20 different background designs, such as those featuring city skylines, the beach, a barbecue backyard, or something more abstract like stripes, polka dots, or stars. Cards are $2 each; a set of four, 50-sheet notepads is $42, and magnets run $2.50 each. There are also predesigned packaged cards featuring posed figures, silhouettes, brides, and even pets ($20 for a 10-pack).
Invite your wedding guests, thank your grandma, or remind your significant others to pick up milk in style uncommon. You can purchase as many of today's Groupon as you like, so nab enough to caricaturize the entire office and send them eerie, slightly uncomfortable thank-you notes for being so good looking.
