Plugging The Firm: Where I work

Hallmark-HQ-320

This video was featured on The Verge this week and features Hallmark and focuses on the precarious state of the greeting card as a means for communication in our modern age. The video also features views of the halls I walk and many people who I’ve worked with over the years (I spent several years in the humor and Shoebox group. Yes, it really is a tiny little division of Hallmark). There are images of our legendary Crown Room (not during lunch), the outside of the building and even some peeks into the cubicles of people I know.

As folks who appreciate analog tools, I hope you also appreciate cards as a way to communicate with family and friends. Not to mention that, without the lovely steady paycheck from Hallmark, this blog might not be here.

PS: Even the Ford ad that bookends the video was filmed in Kansas City.

(Sorry I was unable to embed the video.)

Edit: Updated video and article links on Tuesday, Sept 10 as the original links went bad.

  1. I LOVE real, physical cards. I watched the video and I remembred I wanted to work for Hallmark when I got out of high school. But I got married, went to college, had babies, and forgot. Tell Hallmark I am sorry I forgot. I do buy Hallmark cards….does that count? 🙂
