CLEVELAND — "Romantic," "sweet" and "funny" are three of the words that might describe American Greetings' line of Valentine's Day cards for this year.
The company highlighted one card in its American Greetings Premier collection that says, "Will you make me the happiest person in the world … Will you marry me?" saying the entire collection was designed for people seeking a "sophisticated touch."
The company also is marketing Boofle, a stuffed dog, which will be featured on greeting cards, gift bags and other accessories. The collection "A Heart's Journey" features watercolors by artist Kathy Davis and celebrates different kinds of relationships.
In addition, Vinyl Notes cards feature technology that plays songs with the crackle and spin of old vinyl records. Other products include Taylor Swift cards, cards with hand-drawn art by Mary Englebreit, justWink app cards and others.
