The Question Club
So about 6 months ago I was in a Hallmark store in my local mall, and I found this beautiful card in the "Fresh Ink" section (Which is the brand of the card, like Shoebox, etc.) Fresh Ink ones are slightly more square than the generic type card, if that helps.
The front of the card was a beautiful blue kind of abstract, very arty and sort of akin to a sponge painting, picture of a heart. And beneath it were the words "For you"
And inside the card it said "It's mine. I was thinking maybe you could keep it."
I thought it was the sweetest card I had ever read, and almost bought it, but I wasn't dating anyone at the time, let alone in a position to give anyone that kind of card, so I didn't buy it. But I always kind of remembered it and always thought that when I was in love I would go back and buy it, because if it touched me so deeply it would get across how I felt to the person.
So not to get all gushy on you, but long story short I am now in the position where I can buy the card :)
So last weekend I stopped at Hallmark while in the mall, and looked for the card, but I couldn't find it. I went and described it to the saleslady but she said it didn't ring a bell, and unless I knew the card number she couldn't search for it on the computer. She and I seached high and low down the aisles of cards and never found it, and she said she didn't know any way I could possibly search for it any further than that.
There must be some sort of database/archive of Fresh Ink cards out there somewhere, where maybe customers can order discontinued cards (if it's discontinued.) I mean, there has to be a record of it somewhere, right? I just need help contacting the right medium. Would calling Hallmark head office be my only option? There's gotta be some way to find it online.
How can I find this card? I've looked on the Hallmark website, to no avail. I'm really hoping someone here can help me out with this.
