It’s Christmas in July as Hallmark returns to San Diego Comic-Con for another busy year. Hallmark’s Keepsake Ornaments have become a big part of the Comic-Con market and Hallmark has consistently delivered some of the most popular items of the show and this year looks to be no different, as the company revealed in a press release today just what it will be bringing to San Diego Comic-Con, under the PopMinded by Hallmark umbrella.
This year’s offerings include three exclusive Hallmark Keepsake Ornament designs, an itty bitty plush, and more – all available in limited quantities at the con (and also available at New York Comic Con later in the year).
Hallmark’s exclusives as well as an assortment of Star Wars products will be available from PopMinded’s space in the Star Wars Pavilion, Booth 2913-R. Highlights of the week in this booth include character visits, daily button giveaways featuring 2017 Star Wars Keepsake Ornaments, and sneak peeks of select Hallmark’s Star Wars products to be released in late 2017 and during 2018.
A second PopMinded location, Booth 1505, will sell a selection of Keepsake Ornaments, itty bittys plush and gift products featuring Marvel, Star Trek, DC Comics and other pop culture brands. The event-exclusive DC Comics poster will only be sold in this space, while all other event exclusives will only be available in the other booth location. Additionally, shoppers at Booth 1505 will receive free buttons featuring itty bittys plush characters.
Here’s a look at this year’s Hallmark SDCC exclusives:
