Christmas Cards From Santa Printable

In the year 1843, Henry Cole, the first man to sell Christmas cards in London, sold them for one shilling. The money he made from these sales was used to open a public records office. As a result, the Post Office has evolved into a business that allows people to send and receive cards without having to worry about how to reply. Even though it is a small gesture to send a Christmas card, it can be just as important!

There are many types of cards you can send. Christmas cards were first printed in the United States by a German printer in late 1840s. They were expensive and not affordable for most people. In the United Kingdom, the first commercial Christmas card was made in 1915 by a Boston lithographer named Louis Prang. This allowed for a more realistic representation of the holiday and allowed for five million cards to be produced in one year.
