Before it found gainful employment as a protective sleeve for invitations and greeting cards, the envelope enjoyed a brief career as both a disposable wallet and a self-adhering "kick me" sign. Celebrate the paper package's true calling with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of gifts, greeting cards, and custom invitations and announcements at Statements in Overland Park.
For 21 years, the dedicated staff at Statements has perused markets worldwide to assemble an extensive collection of fine stationery, thoughtful gifts, and personalized products. Visitors can design monogrammed damask thank-you notes ($26 for 10) to display gratitude to gift givers or pizza-delivery drivers, or send out Birds of a Feather save-the-dates ($40 for 10) to inform family and friends of an upcoming wedding or dove-hunting expedition. Statements stocks cards to express sentiments ranging from sympathetic to congratulatory ($1.75–$5.95), and artisan studios such as Constance Kay craft handmade art cards ($6–$16) from an assortment of unique papers and designs from more than 60 artists.
Rough hands can revel in the luxury of Lollia hand crèmes, or woo a lonely beekeeper with the romantic flickering of honey- and tea-leaf-infused candles ($25–$60). Giftable bling includes jewelry from designer Nakamol, who glamorizes wrists, throats and ears with leather, crystal, and silk creations ($20+), and keychains, flip-flops, and personalized stamps represent just a few of the items sorority members can procure to distinguish themselves from rival letters of the Greek alphabet.
