Hallmark Releases New Line Of Cards For The Unemployed

09.28.11 | Sarah Harnisch

Hallmark is out with a new line of cards-- for people who have lost their jobs. If unemployment figures don't depress you enough, try this news: Hallmark now has a line of sympathy cards specifically directed at those who've lost their jobs. One card reads "it's hard to know what to say at a sensitive time like this. How about, 'I'm buying!'". Hallmark says the cards are flying off shelves. The national unemployment rate in August was 9-point-1 percent.  America's top cardmaker say it's important for the morale of the unemployed worker to know someone is thinking of them.
