CLEVELAND, Feb. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- American Greetings Corporation (NYSE: AM) the creator and manufacturer of innovative social expression products for more than 100 years, today announced that Mullen has been selected as the Company's agency of record for full service advertising responsibilities—creative, digital, and media planning/buying. Mullen will work with American Greetings to develop marketing strategies for its paper and digital greetings businesses.

American Greetings began a national search for an advertising agency partner in November 2012; the search was handled by Roth Associates. The company narrowed the selection to four finalists, from which the agency of record was chosen. Mullen was chosen based on its capabilities to grow with American Greetings' marketing and business needs.

"We selected Mullen for its breadth of experience and approach to helping us meet consumer needs," said Alex Ho, executive director of marketing at American Greetings. "Identifying a strong agency partner is significantly important to our leadership team and our business. We're very excited to begin working with Mullen, and look forward to the partnership."

"Innovative, creative, digitally-driven, smart, nice people who want to do fresh new work - American Greetings is an ideal partner for Mullen," said Alex Leikikh, president of Mullen's Boston office. "We feel like we've landed on a big creative idea that, coupled with the power of our strategic and multi-channel media capabilities, can make a huge impact on American Greetings and all of its amazing brands."
