Hallmark Predicting More Jobs at Lawrence Plant


LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — Hallmark is estimating it will have about 700 jobs at its Lawrence production center when it closes its Topeka plant by the end of the year. The Kansas City-based greeting card company estimated in October that it would have 500 jobs in Lawrence and 500 in Leavenworth when the consolidation is complete. Hallmark officials now are estimating the Leavenworth plant will have about 300 employees. Company spokeswoman Linda Odell says the numbers aren't final but those are the current job estimates. The Lawrence Journal-World reports when the transition is complete, the Lawrence plant will produce all domestic Hallmark greeting cards and envelopes. Lawrence's ribbon and sticker production lines will move to the Leavenworth plant. Odell says nearly 300 employees have taken advantage of voluntary buyouts offered by Hallmark.
