It's interesting that Hallmark cards whether printed in the U.S. or in China are printed with FM screening.
Printing greeting cards in China may not be related to increasing profit margins. Most of the cards in the Dollar Stores I've visited are printed in the U.S. and retail for about $1.

Frank--Don't forget that all those purchases are tax-deductible since they were made for research purposes. And, in your tax bracket that could be significant!
