Kansas City, Mo — Hallmark Cards Inc. is cutting 335 jobs in the U.S. and Canada as it consolidates its greeting card manufacturing.
The manufacturing work is being transferred to Hallmark's remaining manufacturing plants in Topeka and Lawrence, company officials said.
The Kansas City-based company said Wednesday it will eliminate 195 positions at its facility in Toronto immediately. An additional 80 positions at its Day Spring Cards plant in Siloam Springs, Ark., will be phased out in September and October.
Sixty positions at Hallmark's Sunrise Greetings plant in Bloomington, Ind., will be eliminated, beginning in January.
Company spokeswoman Julie O'Dell said distribution and other operations at those three locations will not be affected.
