New for Mother's Day: Hallmark Postage-Paid Greetings {Review & Giveaway}

Hallmark{This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations, Polly and Erin!}

Unless you happen to be the people who did an online search for "i hope you have a happy, fun weekend with your family" or "how to stop your kid from eating candy" and made it to this blog then you know that we're big fans of the mail here. There's just something about holding mail in your hands that is more meaningful than reading it in your inbox.
By the way, Person #1, thanks! I hope you have a fun weekend as well. And sorry, Person #2, I don't have that problem because I tend to have eaten it all myself before they have the chance.
Fortunately, after having spent the last 100 years helping people stay connected and best express their feelings, Hallmark has now made sending greeting cards even easier than it was before. Just in time for Mother's Day 2011, Hallmark has partnered with the U.S. Postal Service to offer an innovative addition to their product line: Postage-Paid Greetings.

Postage-Paid GreetingsI have always been a fan of Hallmark, from their classic greeting cards for all occasions to the adorable Recordable Storybooks that we know and love. So, when I heard that they had come out with a perfect way to celebrate and honor all of the moms in our lives this Mother's Day, I knew they would be a hit.

Mother's Day cardsThese Postage-Paid Greetings just make sense! The cards themselves are colorful, stylish, and high quality, which is exactly what I would expect from Hallmark, and somehow they manage to always have just the right wording inside. With extra touches like a pinch of glitter or iridescent wording, you know that they're going to make Mom smile.

Hallmark cardsHowever, great cards are what Hallmark is known for, so that isn't something new. What is great with the Postage-Paid Greetings is the envelope and the barcode right on there indicating that postage has already been paid. All you have to do is sign it, seal it, and stick it out in the mailbox - what a time saver!


With more than 90 Mother's Day Postage-Paid Greetings to choose from, 2011 is even easier to celebrate your mom, mother-in-law, grandma, friend, sister, aunt or anyone else who has been like a mother to you.

And, as the postage on these cards is treated like a Forever stamp, its value will always be equal to the price of a standard First-Class stamp, regardless of when it is mailed. So you never have to worry about buying too many or having to add penny stamps on in the future, you will always be prepared to only have to write a quick message and send your greeting out the door.

In addition to Mother’s Day, Hallmark offers more than 200 “every day” and seasonal Postage-Paid Greetings. So, whether you are thanking mom, sending a birthday card, or celebrating a graduation, Hallmark has made things a little bit easier for all of us.

Postage-Paid Greetings are sold in Hallmark stores, Walmart, Walgreens, CVS, and other Hallmark distribution partners across the country and the Mother’s Day line ranges from $2.69 - $3.99. It has never been easier to tell your mom that you love her! And, thanks to the generosity of Hallmark, two people will be able to make their friends and family happy as well, because...

TWO lucky people will win a sample pack of
Hallmark Postage-Paid Greetings!

I send about 50 greeting cards per month as part of a support group I belong to, so I suspect the next cards I will send will be 'thinking of you' and a card to my nephew who is turning 34! Yikes! When did that happen.

Thanks for the fun chance.
