A certified superbrand, Hallmark helps people the world over share in celebrations, whatever the occasion.
The brief, in brief.
Create an exclusive track that captures the Hallmark brand in song.
Established in 1910, Hallmark is the largest and oldest manufacturer of greetings cards in the United States, with branches in Australia, the UK, Canada, Japan and continental Europe.
Not only that, but it now also manufactures party goods, gift wrap and stationery. And, for the last 20 years, it has also run the Hallmark Channel, broadcasting programming aimed primarily at families.

Listen to Hallmark’s exclusive track
Every note of Hallmark’s unique track has been composed to capture the excitement, nostalgia and happiness held within their distinctive embossed envelopes.
How we helped
Our musicians set to work composing a unique track by following our patented process, creating a bright melody that incorporates familiar instruments for a traditional and nostalgic feel.
Handclaps and pizzicato elements add vibrancy, while discordant changes between passages introduce a quirky edge that enhances the sense of fun. When all the parts combine, it adds up to a track that carries the real Hallmark of quality.
