A Vintage Valentines: Your favourite cards announced!
To help celebrate Valentine’s Day this year we gave you the chance to glance through Valentines gone by, through our vintage cards from past eras. At Hallmark, we have been helping you say and seal those three special words in cards for more than a century. However, the way in which people say ‘I Love You’ has changed a great deal over the years and so have the card designs.
What’s more, this year we made you a part of Hallmark’s future, as we asked you to pick your favourite cards from the past by voting for a range of vintage treasures via Facebook and Twitter. So, after a long journey from the roaring 1920s through to the groovy 1970s you decided which cards were to be actually made into a special vintage range for Valentine’s Day 2012!
Here are the results along with the overall winning card from all the eras…..
