Hallmark is a tried and trusted name in greeting cards and Hallmark.com continues the success story. Whilst not quite reaching the top of our list, you'll find a great range of thoughtful printed cards and ecards, with some great personalizable designs.
When shopping for products it's possible to browse Hallmark.com's ranges in a number of ways. For example, using the tabs on the homepage you can shop by product (e.g. personalized cards, business cards, ecards), by occasion (e.g. anniversary, retirement, birthday-you'll also find everyday cards here) and by ideas (e.g. baby, congratulations, thinking of you). In addition, you can check out products sold in Hallmark Gold Crown stores around the country (you can find your nearest Hallmark Gold Crown store by entering your zip code into the online store locator) as well as online and in-store offers too. If you have a specific type of product in mind, there's also a very handy quickfinder search engine. By specifiying the product, occasion or recipient (or a combination of these) the search engine will bring up those products most closely matching your requirements.
The printed cards on sale here have some nice touches. You'll find quite an extensive range of greeting cards covering all themes and occasions. So, if you stop by with something particular in mind, you shouldn't be disappointed. When you click on a card that you like, you get a detailed preview of the card and its product details. You can do a number of things from here. For example, you can choose a song from the music library and add it to your card. You can also edit the message in the card, write you own or get suggestions from the Hallmark message library. You can also add messages and photos to the back of the card, change the font style, color and size in many message areas and modify the card layout options. Envelopes are included in the price. After personalizing your card, you can then select whether to have the card shipped to you or sent straight to the recipient. If you do have the card mailed you can specify the date it's sent. Hallmark.com can mail anywhere in the US and its territories.
You'll also find a good range of ecards on the site. If you sign up to a Hallmark.com membership, it's possible to get unlimited ecards for $12.99 per year, which is great value. As with the printed card selection, there are ecards to suit all occasions, plus everyday cards to send whenever. There are also special collections, including ecards with your favorite tv characters, hit songs, tv shows and movies. Card quality is very good, with most cards featuring slick animation and sound. All cards are personalizable too, so there's plenty of scope to come up with unique ecards for friends, family and loved ones.
In terms of other features, you can find other products to help your celebration go with a swing, including a range of keepsake ornaments and personalized party plates. The keepsake ornaments comprise collectable figurines including characters from Mickey Mouse, Peanuts, Barbie and Loonie Tunes (the latter suitable for deranged friends and family members). Meanwhile, the personalized party plates consist of designs for birthdays, weddings and new baby announcements to which you can upload your own photos and images. The plates are a lot of fun and only $12.99 for 10.
Whilst Hallmark.com delivers a professional service, it may be that you have the odd problem or query, or need to ask a question. If so, you'll find a detailed FAQs section on the site that should help. If this doesn't resolve it, there's also email support and a customer care phone line (Monday-Friday 8.00am-5.00pm CT). You can also contact the company via postal mail (see the website for the postal address).
Being such an established name you really should check out Hallmark.com for a great selection of quality cards and products to accompany the occasion and help you to celebrate in style.
