Handful of Hallmark Jobs Coming to Lawrence from Georgia
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Hallmark Cards plans to end printing work at its Litho-Krome printing subsidiary in Georgia and transfer the work to Lawrence, Kansas. Hallmark officials said Tuesday the Litho-Krome subsidiary produces greeting cards and Crayola packaging. The work will end in Midland, Georgia, in the third quarter of this year. The work will move to a Hallmark production center in Lawrence. The Kansas City Star reports that 10 Litho-Krome employees will be offered a relocation option and about 40 other employees will receive severance pay. Hallmark acquired the Litho-Krome lithography and printing operation in 1979. The current plant is being marketed for sale by the Kansas City-based real estate office of CBRE.
