This Brand New Site is Brought to You by...Goofballs!

Surely you couldn't help but notice our site's new look. Ever wonder who's the brains behind that whole operation? Introducing the brains!

Maureen-Marketing Brain

Maureen (a.k.a. Mo) is our resident redhead and commander-in-chief of "get the word out" operations. She makes it her business to shout from the rooftops about our newest contests and to welcome contest participants from all across the globe. "Come one, come all," she says.

Theresa-Marketing Brain

Theresa's number one priority is making sure it's easy and fun to be involved in the contests. She's all about making the experience a good one from start to finish. Oh, and we'll let you in on her secret indulgence: she's obsessed with making spreadsheets. We've tried telling her it's an illness, but she's not convinced yet.

Kenya-Marketing Brain

Don't let that look fool you. Kenya is the ever-helpful, whip-smart woman who stays in contact with our contest participants. If you ever get an e-mail from us, chances are it's from this very lady. She may or may not wear a feather boa on a daily basis.

Julienne-Wordy Brain

It's a treat to have Julienne and her cooking on the team. She just joined in the mix this summer, bringing big ideas, a love of words and the best baklava we've ever tasted.

Megan-Wordy Brain

Megan is responsible for outfitting this photo shoot. She's also responsible for giving you behind-the-scenes peeks at what we do around here when we're not striking poses for glamour shots. She'll be answering any questions you leave in the comments section of this here blog.

Karen-Artsy Brain

Karen knows good art and photography when she sees it. And she loves seeing it roll in during each contest. She'll flex her visual expertise come judging time so it's not a bad idea to get on Karen's good side.

Shannon-Artsy Brain

Shannon's got a split personality. Half the time she's making sure everything you see on the site and everything our winners get from us looks beau-ti-ful. The other part of her time she's hanging out on Twitter and Facebook, interacting with you and the rest of our contest friends. Yeah, we know, her job's sooo hard.

Scott-Artsy Brain

Scott's our design guy. Heck, our only guy! Don't feel too sorry for him. We treat him pretty darn well. And he makes sure our site and the winning cards are in ship-shape. Not a bad trade-off.

And now you've met the scrappy, little team behind your Greeting Card Competition! We'd love to hear from you any time about the new site, your experiences with the contests, wily ideas for pranking Scott...

Have a look at the rest of the photos from our dress-and-dazzle session on our Facebook fan page!

So nice to put names with your faces!,
Till now some were just words on a page,
From the looks of all of your outfits,
On dress down Friday you come out of your cage!

GAWD..I wish I worked with people that knew how to let loose like you! FUN FUN FUN!
I think we should contact Oprah and have a grand Hallmark 100th anniversary /party/meeting...huh???

We dress UP, Sandra, no matter the day. I'd imagine you bring an air of fun to your workplace that just can be denied. Special Hallmark dare: wear an extra silly accessory to work tomorrow and see how people react. Might I suggest a feather boa?

Sandideer said...

OMG...sorry it took so long to get back to this...
about my workplace??? If a person wears a SMILE..you are looked at very strangely..you just would not believe it!!
I am job shopping next week....I have reached my limit! Good thing I have these contests to keep my sanity..woohoooooooooooooooo!
If I get a new job??.... on my last day at this place I will dress WAYYYYYYYYYY UP..and take pictures too to show you!PROMISE

Sounds like a deal, Sandra. Keep smiling, feather boa or no feather boa.
