PopMinded by Hallmark plans its highest-ever level of yearly participation at the nation’s largest pop culture fan gatherings with limited quantities of products and collectibles developed exclusively for events starting next month.

PopMinded, which debuted nationally last year, is Hallmark’s new way to celebrate fandom with gifts and collectibles created and chosen with all fans in mind. PopMinded continues and expands on Hallmark’s decade-long tradition of providing event attendees access to Hallmark’s ever popular event exclusive products through its event pop-up store.

PopMinded will appear at Planet Comicon Kansas City scheduled April 28-30 at Bartle Hall in Kansas City, Mo.

Three exclusive Hallmark Keepsake Ornament designs including the Enterprise C repaint, an itty bittys® plush, and two other gift items will be sold in limited quantities at Comic-Con International, to be held July 20-23 in San Diego, Calif.

U.S.S. Enterprise™ NCC-1701-C, a Keepsake Ornament inspired by the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode “Yesterday’s Enterprise,” depicts the iconic starship with a battle-damage paint scheme as it appeared on screen.  This repaint of a 2015 Keepsake Ornament has a total production run of 3,325 and sales will be limited to 225 per day.

PopMinded will make its first appearance at The Official 2017 Star Trek Convention, scheduled Aug. 2-6 at the Rio Suites Hotel in Las Vegas. The repainted U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-C Keepsake Ornament previously available at Comic-Con International will be sold at this event with 100 available each day.

Another first for PopMinded will be Salt Lake Comic Con, scheduled Sept. 21-23 at the Salt Palace Convention Center in Salt Lake City, Utah. Products to be sold at the PopMinded booth will be announced closer to the event.

At New York Comic Con, set for Oct. 5-8 at the Jacob K. Javits Center in New York City, PopMinded will offer all items previously available at Comic-Con International with the same daily allocations.

Additional details about prices for each exclusive product, as well as activity plans for each event will be announced closer to the respective convention dates.
