Henry Cole was the first man to sell Christmas card in London in 1843. He 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. It may seem like a small gesture, but sending a Christmas gift card can be just the same as sending one.
There are several types of cards that you can send. Christmas cards were first printed in the United States by a German printer in late 1840s. They were very costly and many people couldn’t afford them. Louis Prang, a Boston lithographer, created the first commercial Christmas card in the United Kingdom in 1915. This process allowed for a very realistic picture of the holiday and allowed the production of five millions cards in one year.
