KANSAS CITY, Mo. (May 1, 2018) — Hallmark is helping people celebrate the moms in their lives this Mother’s Day by putting their feelings into words with Signature cards. Featuring new selections of intricately designed Signature cards, with handcrafted embellishments and unique craftsmanship, the collection features more than 100 Mother’s Day cards, including Spanish sentiments and cards with 14K gold-plated necklaces.
“At Hallmark, we believe that every mom deserves to hear how amazing she is, especially on Mother’s Day, and we want to help people tell the moms in their life what she means to them with a Signature card that is as special as she is,” said Lindsey Roy, chief marketing officer – Hallmark Greetings. “When you care enough to put what you feel in your heart into words, it is the best gift for a mom. It can change her world.”
This Mother’s Day, Hallmark is introducing a new national marketing campaign aimed at inspiring people to take the time to put what’s in their heart into words to honor the mom in their lives. Modern mom and actress Julie Bowen’s voice provides a warm, genuine voiceover for Hallmark’s “When You Care Enough to Put It Into Words” TV commercial, now viewable on Hallmark’s YouTube channel.
Bowen also teamed up with Hallmark and Improv Everywhere for a special Mother’s Day surprise to help families show their appreciation for mom this Mother’s Day and demonstrate the impact that a card can make. The big surprise is now viewable on Hallmark’s YouTube channel. Other marketing tactics this Mother’s Day include social/online video, interactive digital ads, and radio ads.
“Our hope is that Signature cards will help people recognize and celebrate all types of moms and mom figures in their lives this Mother’s Day,” Roy said. “Mother’s Day is a time to celebrate all moms – your own mom, your mom friends, people who have been like a mom to you, and so many more. Telling someone what they mean to you, or what a great mom they are, can make all the difference in someone’s day.”
With an estimated 133 million Mother’s Day cards exchanged every year, Mother’s Day is the third-largest holiday for giving greeting cards. This year, Hallmark Signature Mother’s Day cards feature fresh, sophisticated designs paired with warm, genuine messages to tell Mom exactly what she means to you.
