Our Valentine Program began in 1972 and has grown over the years to include a variety of Valentine community activities, as well as our nationally-known cachet stamping and postmark program.  Valentines are hand-stamped with our unique cachet, which is modeled after the year's winning card, and then hand-cancelled with a special Loveland, Ohio, postmark.  Each year, we re-mail thousands of cards to all 50 states and many foreign countries. We also stamp wedding invitations throughout the year.

 

To send your Valentines with our romantic cachet stamp and the Loveland postmark, prepare your cards, affixing proper postage, addressee, and return address, and include them in a larger envelope addressed to:

 

The Valentine Lady

Loveland Area Chamber of Commerce

442 W. Loveland Avenue

Loveland, OH 45140


If you'd like to personally drop off your Valentine cards for stamping, we'll be set up at the Loveland Post Office during the first two weeks in February from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm Monday through Friday and 9:00 am to 2:00 pm on Saturday.  This is a great volunteer opportunity for Chamber members to "grow your business" by helping us greet the public and stamp their Valentine cards at the post office.  Call the Chamber office at 683-1544 to sign up for a time slot.

Commemorative Loveland Valentine Cards can be purchased at the Chamber office, including our "stamping table" at the Loveland Post Office, the Loveland Kroger, Pizazz Studio, The UPS Store, Union Savings Bank, Loveland Health Care Center, Greater Loveland Historical Society Museum, LCNB and The Lodge Retirement Community.  Our commemorative Valentine card is sponsored by Loveland Health Care Center.

The Loveland Valentine Kickoff is held on the second Saturday in January at 11:00 am at the Loveland Kroger store.  Meet our newest Valentine Lady, former Valentine Ladies, and our winning Valentine Card artist who helps us unveil the new card design.  Our special limited edition Loveland Valentine cards go on sale that day.
