10 Things Still Made in America

Greeting cards
The Great Recession and high unemployment have even worked their way into the messages offered on greeting cards.

In 2009, Hallmark introduced a line of greeting cards meant to express sympathy and support for those who have lost their job.

A grumpy-looking cat is pictured on one such card with the prose: "Heard about your job. Is there anywhere I could hack up a hairball, like, say, on a former employer's head? Just wonderin' ..."

Another has a less humorous take: "Losing your job does not define you. What you do about it does. As you face what lies ahead, your strength will come from the determined and passionate person you are ... the person I already know you to be."

Given the audience, Hallmark stresses that all the cards are made in the U.S.

The $4.1 billion company sells its products in 100 countries and more than 40,000 stores in the U.S. Headquartered in Kansas City, Mo., Hallmark has manufacturing and distribution facilities in Missouri, Kansas, Connecticut, Georgia, Texas and Illinois. Among its subsidiaries is the previously mentioned Crayola.
