Rather than just getting a Hallmark greeting card on a birthday or any old generic calendar holiday, the company is aiming to bring some encouragement to the masses of unemployed right when they need it most.
The greeting card giant created a line of sympathy cards that targets people who recently lost their jobs.
With the national unemployment rate staying steady at nine per cent, the company thought there was an untapped audience.
'People in times of need with always need to connect,' said Hallmark's creative director Derek McCracken to National Public Radio's All Things Considered.
'When the consumers have asked us for a way to connect in those difficult situations, we try to respond in an authentic way and we think that what the greeting card does is offer a bridge,' Mr McCracken continued.
Eight such cards are available on the company's website, ranging in their level of seriousness and humour.

Daily Mail has two titles for this, which didn’t fit:
“’Sorry you lost your job’: Greeting card company makes new line of sympathy cards for victims of unemployment”
“Greeting card company makes new line of sympathy cards targeted at job loss due to high unemployment “
Send to a dozen of your favorite dem’s this Fall.
Well......it IS condolences afterall.
Now if they put in conservative, small government, tax cutting messages inside, perhaps more people would start getting the message.
I don't think it's too much to ask.
“Rose are red, violets are blue
I’m unemployed, now you are too”
But you did vote for Obama!
Karma is a bitch baby!!!!!!
The schadenfreude collection?
They should have one that says “How’s that Hope and Change workin’ for ya?”
I would take some of those. In 2013 I hope to have a good use for them.
Lost your job?
Use you head when you vote the next time a%%hole! ;-)
you = your
“I should have given
you the five bucks I
spent on this card!”
“You lost your job, that isn’t swell
That vote for Obama didn’t work out so well”
I wouldn’t mind buying one and sending it to Pennsylvania Ave.
This is disgusting.
