A Guide to Selling Your Products to Hallmark Stores
While Hallmark Stores are renowned for their selection of cards and holiday gift cards, they actually stock a range of other products as well. This makes them an ideal choice if you have gift items to sell.
Useful Tips and Strategies for Becoming a Supplier to Hallmark Stores
When it comes to becoming a supplier for Hallmark Stores there are some points noting. Here are some invaluable insights from Karen Waksman;
Don’t underestimate the potential of selling your product at Hallmark Stores just because they primarily focus on cards and holiday gift cards. Their inventory includes products as well. So if you have a gift item don’t hesitate to explore the opportunity of selling it at Hallmark Stores.
Keep in mind that there are both owned stores and owned locations, within the vast network of Hallmark stores. This means that you have the opportunity to directly approach the owner or manager of a Hallmark store and inquire if they would be interested, in stocking your product. It’s a way to gain brand recognition by selling your product at Hallmark Stores. Its important to note that this opportunity is specific to a single store rather than all of their locations.
Getting Started with Selling Products at Hallmark Stores
If you have gift items that you want to sell Hallmark Stores can be a choice. They have both corporate owned and individually owned stores offering possibilities for getting your product on their shelves. If you’re interested in learning about strategies for approaching, pitching and selling to retailers, like Hallmark Stores I recommend checking out Karen Waksman’s Retail MBA training program.

Transcript of This Training…
Learn everything you need to know to become a Hallmark supplier
Today I want to talk about a question that comes up all of the time in my workshops and classes.
People always ask me,
“Karen, how do I get my product to the Hallmark Cards? I have this great product and just think I’d love to just get into that retailer. Do you have any quick tips or strategies and things to consider about Hallmark?”
What you can sell to Hallmark stores
But the truth is, Hallmark can be amazing for people who have gift items. The fact that they have so many different types of products in their stores, they don’t just have cards.
There are many advantages once you become a Hallmark supplier
I try and teach people how to go after as many retailers as possible and making serious money from them. Sometimes, retailers like Hallmark are great because all of your competitors haven’t thought about selling their product to them. So if you have a great gift item, explore Hallmark because a lot of competitors don’t even consider it, and never become a Hallmark supplier.
Why you should be selling to Hallmark
They have stores they own and so forth. They also actually have individual on-store, which basically means that the store owner can buy for that individual store because they have corporate buyers and then there are some Hallmark stores that you can go to and seriously just get in your car, go to those stores, talk to the person who owns that store or the store manager and see if you can potentially get your product into that individual store. That’s a little bit different than some other corporately owned retail stores.
How to get your products into Hallmark local retail stores & become a Hallmark supplier
With Hallmark, there are people who own individual stores, and so for those, you can actually just go there, and see if the individual store owner would be willing to put your product into their store and ultimately still get brand recognition of selling your product to Hallmark. However, it is for an individual store and not for all of their stores. That’s something to consider as well.
