Hallmark Card Showers – Win a $25 Hallmark Gift Card!

July 19, 2012

Have you ever thrown a Card Shower, or perhaps been the lucky recipient of one? If you aren’t hip on the lingo, a Card Shower is basically when a group of people “shower” a special someone with a mailbox full of well wishes, gratitude, or support.

There are so many times when a card shower is appropriate:

  • Baby Shower
  • Anniversary
  • Baptism
  • Birthday
  • Father’s Day
  • Graduation
  • Mother’s Day
  • Thank You
  • Retirement
  • Wedding
  • and more!
    A card shower is the organized sending of a large number of greeting cards to a single person or group. With Card Showers from Hallmark, there’s an easy way to invite people to participate, share details like who, when and where, and even mail cardsβ€”all online at Hallmark.com. The people you invite can also pass an invitation along to people they know, helping to spread the word about your event.

    So, it’s really simple to create a Card shower. Just head over to Hallmark.com, and then invite folks via email and Facebook, telling them who the Card Shower is for and when and where to mail the cards. Hallmark tells you who has RSVP’d, and when they send their cards. While card showers have been around for a while, Card Showers from Hallmark is the first online service that helps people organize and track their card showers.

    To get you started with your first Card Shower, or whatever else you’d like to spend it on,
