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.

Hallmark UK was established in 1958 and through a series of mergers and acquisitions, Hallmark Cards PLC was formed. We are now the UK's leading greeting card publisher, representing 60% of the Hallmark International business and are proud to be the home of the International Division.

In 1966, the International Division was established and has wholly owned subsidiaries in Canada, UK, Japan, Mexico, Netherlands, Puerto Rico, Belgium, Spain, Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Singapore and China.

In the UK we have 3,100 employees working together to deliver superior quality products - we have the largest creative resource in the industry dedicated to providing first class design and innovation.

Our total quality culture is supported by continuous improvement through best practice quality management processes and superior product quality, meeting all consumer expectations, legal and safety requirements.

Today, the UK group produces approximately two billion cards per year and offers the largest product range in the UK market with almost 20,000 designs available in any one year.
