The 2013 White House Christmas Card

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) - The White House greeting card being sent throughout the country has Michigan fingerprints all over it.

The Grand Rapids Press reports that President Obama's 2013 card was designed by graphic artist Chris Hankinson of Hilltop Studios in Grand Rapids, Champion Die Inc. of Comstock Park made the die and Admore Inc. of Detroit made the card. Even the hand folding of the cards was done in state at Handy Bindery Co. in Clinton Township.

The pop-up card has a three-dimensional image of the White House and the Obama's two dogs. It was signed by Barack and Michelle Obama and daughters, Malia and Sasha.

The 52-year-old Hankinson says being chosen to design the card was an honor.
