Hallmark Datebooks and Planners 2017

Popular Datebook Planner By Hallmark

Each year the company famous for greeting cards, issues the Hallmark Datebook. It is a planner type calendar that has a different theme each year. The planner keeps you abreast on the important dates during the calendar year and gives a list of Holidays that occur each year. The bonus is there are coupons to be used in a Hallmark store through out the coming year. The datebooks usually span from November of one year through December of the following year.

These datebooks are given freely in Hallmark stores across the country and are so popular that they become hard to find after a short period of time. Can you get them in other ways? Sometimes, yes.

Hallmark Cards Inc: a little history

The company known as Hallmark to many people in the United States had its beginning in 1910 from Joyce C Hall who was fascinated with the popularity of post cards in the US and around the world. He initially sold post cards and then began to encourage the purchase of a greeting card instead. He felt that a greeting card was much more personal and offered a bit more class than the simple post card did.

The company was first called Hall Brothers and at first the brothers sold Valentine and Christmas cards to the public. They are also given credit for modern wrapping paper. In 1928 the brothers changed the name to Hallmark adopting the mark that was used by goldsmiths in London.
