Joyce Hall was born the youngest of 3 sons to the poor but religious Hall family in Nebraska. J.C.Hall was a hard worker and in 1910 he boarded a train to Kansas City as a young man with a vision - this is when the Hallmark story really began. Based at the YMCA, he started selling postcards via a mail order business, which developed to become the world leader in greeting cards. One of J.C.Hall's goals was to bring works of celebrated artists to people who might not otherwise see them, and to that end he hired artists to produce cards for him - artists from Salvador Dali to Sir Winston Churchill have produced cards for Hallmark. Currently, Hallmark's greeting cards, gift wrappings and other personal expression products are translated into more than 30 languages and sold in more than 100 countries.

We believe that consumers love what we create, as we understand their needs better than any other greeting card company - when shopping for a card, they are seeking a sentiment and design for a particular friend, loved one or occasion. And when they receive a card in the post, they understand the power of the human connection
