At C-K, our mission is simple: Make friends, not ads®. This philosophy has helped fuel seven years of the best sales Porsche has ever had, 28 quarters of record Corona Extra results while the rest of the industry’s major brands are in decline, recording-breaking attendance at Cedar Fair’s amusement parks and similar results for Vitamix and Edward Jones. It’s also how we helped make the BIC Flex 5 the #1 disposable razor.  

 

Our friend-making mindset not only drives our ideas, it also drives our structure. We’re built without silos or competing interests to truly tap into an ever-expanding range of disciplines, from advertising to SEM/SEO to social to analytics—whatever it takes to create compelling brand experiences. It has also fueled our growth, making C-K the nation’s second-largest independent ad agency and placing us among the top 20 advertising and digital firms in the country with nearly 500 employees and $900 million in annual billings.  

 

Headquartered in Chicago with offices in New York and Milwaukee, we represent major brands across virtually every industry, including Benihana, BIC Razors and Stationery, Cedar Fair Amusement Parks (Cedar Point, Knott’s Berry Farm and 10 others), Casa Noble Tequila, Corona Extra, Edward Jones, General Tire, Nikon, Pacifico Beer, Paper and Packaging Board, Porsche, Roundy’s (Pick ‘n Save and Mariano’s) and Vitamix. We are all about outcome, not output. And our results prove it. For more information, visit C-K.com.

Hallmark makes the world a more caring place by helping people laugh, love, heal, say thanks, reach out and make meaningful connections with others. 

Through moments big and small, and through both happy and challenging times, Hallmark helps give voice to caring thoughts and emotions with tangible reminders of appreciation, celebration, belonging and love. 

Hallmark was founded more than a century ago by a teenage entrepreneur with a couple of shoe boxes of postcards under his arm and the American dream in his heart. Today’s Hallmark is a $4 billion business with greeting cards and other products sold in more than 40,000 retail stores across the U.S.- including top mass retailers and the network of Hallmark Gold Crown stores. 

Our brand also reaches people online at Hallmark.com and through our retail partners' web sites, and on television through and cable’s top-rated Hallmark Channels and Hallmark Hall of Fame movies Worldwide, Hallmark offers products in more than 30 languages available in 100 countries. 

Hallmark subsidiary Crayola inspires children's creativity through Crayola® brand crayons and markers as well as innovative art tools, crafting activities and creative toys that give kids the power to explore, discover, play and dream. 

But as big as we’ve become, and as iconic as our brand is today, we’re still privately held, still based in Kansas City, Mo., and still led by members of our founding family. 

More importantly, Hallmark continues to stay close to people's needs, understanding what is universal in the human heart and meeting those needs with products and experiences that bring people together. 

It’s an honor and privilege to do so. #HallmarkLife
