Hallmark's 100th Anniversary

We couldn't be happier with the trend toward more pen-and-paper correspondence (as opposed to the electronic kind). For the past century, Hallmark has provided the pictures and words to help us express the humor, gravity, and love of all life's milestones, including engagements, showers, weddings, and anniversaries. To celebrate its 100th year, Hallmark has taken advantage of the Interweb to put together slideshows of some of its favorite greeting cards. The early Valentine's Day cards may even offer inspiration for an old timey-themed wedding. But as the section titled "Cards are Groovy, Man" suggests, sometimes nothing says "I love you" like a pair of bell-bottom pants—at least they're more original than an emoticon :-P
