Hallmark was founded in 1910 by Joyce C. Hall. When he was still only 18, he stepped off a train in Kansas City, Missouri, with his two shoeboxes of picture postcards. He had an entrepreneurial spirit and the determination of a pioneer and he quickly made a name for himself with the picture postcards he sold and this is where the Hallmark legend started.
For over 100 years, Hallmark has helped people connect with one another and give voice to their feelings. “When You Care Enough to Send the Very Best” is more than a slogan for Hallmark, it is a business commitment. “Quality. Innovation. Caring.” Hallmark is one of the best-known brands in the world with diverse businesses including greeting cards, stationery, gifts, e-cards, a TV channel and more.
Their resources at headquarters include a team of 800 artists, designers, stylists, writers, editors, web designers, and photographers as well as an immense art bank of resources collected during the last hundred years.
Hallmark is not only well known in the United States, its licensing program has expanded throughout Europe and Asia. Hallmark is now a refined brand for sharing love and thoughtfulness. “When You Care Enough to Send the Very Best!”
