Hallmark Connections Card Studio

Hallmark Connections Card Studio is an easy and fun way to create personalized cards, invitations, signs, certificates, and announcements. Offering more than 1,000 pre-designed cards featuring Hallmark artwork and messages, Card Studio provides a series of enjoyable and creative tools for designing personal greetings.

A new concept in personal expression products, Card Studio invites users to select artwork, messages, fonts, and imported images such as family photos or freehand drawings. A joint development between Hallmark Cards, Inc., the world's largest manufacturer of greeting cards, and Micrografx, Inc., an industry leader in technical graphics software, Card Studio empowers people of all ages to create high-quality, personalized sentiments on their home computers.

Along with the ability to create and customize cards for any occasion, Card Studio includes several well-designed and thoughtful features to enhance your personalized messages. A unique Event Minder and Address Book allow you to record birthdays, anniversaries, holidays, and other occasions along with the names and addresses of relatives and friends. You can also import names and addresses stored in other programs, view and print calendars by the month, and create notes for any day.

The Card Rack is organized like a greeting card display rack in your favorite store. Here you can search for pre-designed cards by category, choose a card, and personalize it by adding your own touches. The Card Finder allows another way to search for cards, announcements, or invitations by letting you combine several categories to choose a card. The Message Book contains greeting card messages that appear on the cards in the Card Rack. You can find and choose the message you want and paste it into your card of choice.

In the Studio, you can create original cards, invitations, announcements, signs, and certificates. You can also customize any choices from the Card Rack by taking them into the Studio for redesign. You can punch up the appearance and layout of your message, resize, rotate, or crop it, and select the font and colors you like best. You can use drawing tools to create interesting shapes and lines, adding symbols, photos, graphics, and your own touches to each design.

In addition to cards, invitations, and announcements, Card Studio includes a variety of attractive screen savers created by Hallmark artists. You can configure the Screen Gallery to select and deselect the artwork you want to use and specify the percentage of screen the screen saver will use.

Card Studio offers a series of fun and intuitive tools for designing cards for any occasion. Whether you are a novice, a sophisticated graphics expert, or somewhere in between, the artwork, messages, and graphics technology in Card Studio will empower you to produce electronic card designs with superb results. By using Card Studio, you'll be in the artist's seat to make the kind of card you want, in the style you like, on your own computer.

For Windows (32-bit Systems) [*Please review compatibility/platform sections in 'What You Get']


This item is for the original media, and includes only the media (ie. CD, floppy ...) UNLESS specifically stated above and/or in the title. If more than just the media is included, it will state which items are (ie. box, manual, etc ). Items that come in a sleeve refer to a generic CD sleeve (typically white) and will be sent with shipping protection to avoid damage during transit. If available, we will also send the front and/or back CD inserts if in stock. If these are important to you, please message us to verify we have them available to send. Please do not assume items are included other than what's stated. Again, ask questions PRIOR to purchasing if you have any concerns.


All images/pictures are stock photos and are for reference only, mainly to show the type of game you will be getting. Please read "WHAT YOU GET" for what is included with the media. Screenshots may vary based on your own computer system, video card, monitor, etc.


Computers are like people, each one is different. Unlike console games, a computer game may install and work flawlessly on one system but may need adjustments on another. This is due to a variety of factors, mainly the OS platform running, video card you have, drivers, protection software installed, etc. Many times manufacturers release updates to games to fix bugs and add enhancements. We would be happy to help get the game going on your computer, but ultimately compatibility issues are the responsibility of the buyer. We suggest going to Google and searching for the name of the game along with the words "system requirements" to determine if your system is suitable. Ultimately, we are not responsible for software compatibility problems or publisher's errors.


Stated within the auction is what platform the game will work on (ie. Windows, Mac, Linux...) This is a generic statement and specific platform versions (ie. XP, Vista...) will have to be researched by the buyer. Games that came out PRIOR to XP or higher will not specifically state they will work on that release, but only because they came out before those versions were made. Many, if not most, will work on XP or higher with a few quick adjustments. We provide instructions with all items purchased on how to do this adjustment using the Program Compatibility Wizard. If we find out that an item will definately not work on a specific version, we will state it. For DOS games, you may need to play it with a free DOSbox program if the Program Compatibility Wizard does not work.

64-Bit Windows OS Systems:
For 64-bit Operating Systems, older games most likely will NOT work due to 64-bit systems not being able to run 16-bit programming code (most games prior to 2000). For DOS games, you may need to play it with a free DOSbox program.

Macintosh Systems:
For Macintosh programs, most older games will need to be run in Classic Environment if you have a MAC OS X 10.0 - 10.4 version. Please research Google on how to do this, or send us a message for information prior to purchasing. If your MAC OS system doesn't support Classic Environment (ie. MAC OS X 10.5 or Higher OR Intel Macs), you will have to try running it using the free program called SheepShaver, but compatibility is not ensured. Please research prior to purchasing or ask questions.


Please verify you have the required hardware in order to use the specified media (ie. CD, DVD, floppy drives, etc.) If the item comes as a floppy disc, make sure you have either the needed 3.5" floppy drive or the bigger and older 5.25" floppy drive.


  • Ask questions PRIOR to purchasing an order to avoid any confusion.
  • Be patient if there are problems during installation or gameplay. Typically someone else has already ran into that problem and has listed a solution online. Contact us and we will do our best to help.
  • Be sure to update your video card drivers and search for updates to the game from the manufacturer.


    We typically ship all items out within 1-2 business days after payment is received. In regards to the stated shipping and handling, remember that these costs include more than just postage.

    International buyers please email/chat with us to determine if you are eligible for shipping of a specific product. If you are, then international buyers not shipping to an address within the U.S. can expect their orders to take anywhere from 5 days to 4 weeks to be received, depending on how fast/well USPS is moving. Additionally, international orders typically have to go through governmental customs, which can delay the arrival process. Import duties, taxes, and charges are not included in the item price or shipping cost. These charges are the buyer's responsibility. Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to buying. Customs fees are normally charged by the shipping company or collected when you pick the item up. These fees are not additional shipping charges.
