And you can actually play them!
This year, you can set your Valentine’s Day to music – thanks to Hallmark’s first-ever Vinyl Record Cards. The greeting card giant recently released a fun new Valentine’s Day collection of three cards featuring exclusive 7-inch vinyl records with songs from Bruno Mars, Aretha Franklin and INXS. And you can actually play them!
“At Hallmark, we are merging music trends with greeting cards to take card giving and receiving to the next level,” Tom Brantman, Hallmark creative director, said in a release. “Sharing and enjoying music with others is an experience that spans all generations and brings people together in a way that other things can’t. Our vinyl record cards do just that: they offer more than a sentiment—they are a gift in themselves.”
The first of their kind, each card comes with a 45 RPM vinyl record with two songs from each artist built into a sleeve on the cover. Simply put it on any record player and enjoy!
Old souls will appreciate the Aretha Franklin card, which features her classic hits "Respect" and "Think," while pop music fans will swoon over R&B hits "Just The Way You Are" and "Marry Me" on the Bruno Mars version. Even rockers will be satisfied by "Need You Tonight" and "Never Tear Us Apart" on the INXS records.
