Our free service makes it easy for a group to say "Happy Birthday," "You can do it," or "We're all here for you!" It's a snap to start one and it's fun for everyone to join in.
A card shower is the organized sending of a large number of greeting cards to a single person or group. The idea has been popular for years, relying on things like word-of-mouth, community newspapers and church bulletin boards to spread the message. Now, 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 cards—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.
You begin by creating a Card Shower event on Hallmark.com. You can then invite participants via email and Facebook, telling them who the Card Shower is for, where the cards should be mailed, and when to mail them.
We help you track the responses to the event, like who has RSVP'd, if they'll be purchasing a card in a Hallmark store or on Hallmark.com, and if they've sent their card yet.
The Card Showers event page allows participants to post comments and photos, sharing stories and memories about the honoree, even once the event is over.
Card Showers are great anytime someone is celebrating, needs some support or deserves a high-five. A greeting card shower is often held for milestone birthdays and anniversaries (40th birthday, 25th anniversary). They provide much-needed support for someone battling a serious illness. They're also ideal for celebrating accomplishments like graduations and retirements.
