Jim Fedor fell in love with elegant writing 30 years ago and immediately felt a strong call to create beautiful scripts. Before coming to Hallmark in 2005, Jim owned a lettering studio and worked also in the publishing and graphic design world. One of his coolest projects? Being the official calligrapher of the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt lake City, where he lettered the winning medal certificates. Still, Jim says Hallmark is the greatest place he’s experienced. That’s quite a compliment, considering he’s been everywhere from his birthplace of Cleveland, Ohio, to Taiwan as an LDS missionary, to China for his own publishing ventures.

Mindi illustrates whimsical and fun Christmas cards using Snowmen, Santa Clause’s, cute critters, and fascinating lettering designs. Students will be able to see Mindi’s illustrations and watch her illustrate new ideas, ask questions, and talk about what they love about the Christmas holiday.
Marcia has been illustrating and designing greeting cards for her family since she was old enough to hold a crayon. When her 5th grade class made a field trip to tour Hallmark, she knew that she’d found her dream career and now designs cards for a much larger audience. She loves sharing her passion for greeting cards and the creative process with others.”
