So the Dad was doing some research online (as he calls it - Mom calls it idling away time !) and he came across some information about a previous site called Hallbark Cards and Hallbark Gourmet - both designed with doggies in mind. Both sites were closed down due to name dispute with guess who.
Mom was worried about this too - so after a big family discussion (I had to put my thinking cap on for this) we have decided not to risk using that name even though we love it. Amber-Mae will still get her prize though as it was was a great name to think of.
Mom and Dad have been researching all afternoon and have found a name no one else has used so the new bloggie will be online soon. Mom has been very busy creating things to put on there. Please remember though all the items are hand made and often take 4-6 hours to make, so there will not be a lot available to start with.
I think it's safer that you don't use the HallBark Card name :)ReplyDelete
I can't wait to see what name you've come up with now!!!
Amber did come up with an awesome name but it is best to stay safe, right!ReplyDelete
Our post is up on how we got our names, Reilly. http://northfordmaggie.blogspot.com/2011/04/how-we-got-our-names.html
Love ya lots

Yup, no sense messing with the big corporations. Looking forward to the site. I have already sent almost all the cards.ReplyDelete
Oh yes. You do have to be careful. Don't want to get involved in a legal matter! How ridiculous though.ReplyDelete
Being from the Kansas City area, home to Hallmark, we should have realized that - and yes, they are pretty protective of anything connected to Hallmark. So probably a good idea to steer clear of anything remotely related to that. Can't wait to see what you have selected.ReplyDelete

Oh, that's too bad. It would have been a very cute name - but not worth the risk.ReplyDelete
Can't wait to check out your new site when it's up and running.
Well we don't want to make the big corporations all mad. We don't want to make anyone mad. We thought it was a great name, but look foward to seeing what the new ones is. Sniffs, The HoundDogsReplyDelete
