By Airboy: Everything is somewhere. Hallmark’s HQ is in Kansas City. They have a free museum which includes samples of things from their history.
My wife and I went to the Hallmark Museum at the corporate campus in Kansas City late last month while I was there for a conference.
Norman Rockwell, Charles Schultz and Winston Churchill all designed cards for them.
In addition to cards, Hallmark does Christmas ornaments, pop-up books, and movies. Hallmark Theater did quality dramas going back to the black and white era of network television. Today they have the Hallmark Channel and are probably best known for their Christmas movies and other upbeat cozy movies.
Weirdly, the Wall Street Journal did an article a few years back that pointed out filmmakers who do Christmas movies also do monster and slasher movies. If you think about it, both types of movies follow a set formula, are low-budget, and must be shot on tight schedules.
