Hallmark Introduces 2014 Event-Exclusive Keepsake Ornaments

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (April 7, 2014) — Hallmark continues its participation at the nation's largest pop culture fan conventions with Keepsake Ornaments exclusively developed for 2014 events.

Three event-exclusive ornament designs will be sold in limited quantities at Comic-Con International, to be held July 24-27 in San Diego, Calif., and at New York Comic Con, set for October 9-12 in New York City:

  • Batman: Arkham City — Inspired by the 2011 video game from Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC Entertainment, Batman: Arkham City, Batman crouches on a rooftop gargoyle in this Keepsake Ornament.
  • Wampa™ — This Keepsake Ornament depicts the ferocious horned predator that attacked Luke Skywalker on the ice planet Hoth as seen in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back™. The Wampa ornament is covered in velvety flocking.
  • War Machine™ — As featured in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, this is a repainted variant of last year's Iron Patriot™ Keepsake Ornament.

More information about Hallmark's plans for these events will be announced closer to the respective dates.

The 2014 Hallmark Keepsake Ornament Dream Book will be available this month in Hallmark Gold Crown® stores and online at Hallmark.com.
