Hallmark purchased the company, "Springbok Editions", in 1967. At that time, Springbok was primarily a jigsaw puzzle company with a small line of craft kits. Hallmark used its knowlege of artwork and lithography reproduction to improve the offering and expand its position in the market place. [Courtesy of Frances Main.]
Recently, production and distribution has been taken over by ALLIED PRODUCTS INC.TM
