In July, we posted about Hallmark’s new Storyteller packaging seen in images found on the Hallmark website. At the time we didn’t know if it was something we would see on physical packages or just limited to online images. It can now be confirmed the larger artwork is on physical packaging and is slowly making its way into stock as older inventory is depleted.
Along with the new artwork are new item numbers for the 2020 and 2021 Storytellers.
Hallmark’s third year of Star Trek Storytellers brings us our third version of packaging design. The 2021 Storytellers had an ornament image that was roughly 20% larger than its 2020 predecessors. The 2022 Lt. Commander Scott ornament has a large front image that takes up the majority of the packaging face conforming with the rest of the 2022 Hallmark lineup.
Although Hallmark stores (at least mine) are stocking Storytellers in their original packaging, Hallmark’s website has photos of the 2020-21 ornaments in updated 2022 packaging. No word if this is something that will actually be available in stores or if it is simply for marketing uniformity.

UPDATE: There has been a correction to this since it was posted. Hallmark announced that McCoy will be released in October and not July as the Instagram post indicated.
Hallmark is releasing both of the final Storyteller ornaments in July this year instead of splitting them up between summer and fall like years past. July will bring us McCoy and Scotty to round out the Mirror, Mirror Storytellers series. The Enterprise tree topper, Kirk, Spock, Uhura, Sulu, Chekov will all be available for the last time in Hallmark stores this year.
