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