Henry Cole, an American lithographer, is the one who invented Christmas cards. By the 1880s, he was producing more than five million cards annually. His cards used a new process known as chromolithography, which allows for realistic detail and coloration. By the late 1800s, these cards had become the most popular gift for family and friends. There are many styles to choose from so you’re sure to find the one that suits your needs.

Christmas cards were traditionally bought by family members and close friends. Today, they are sold for several pounds. Some are rare, and can fetch thousands of pounds. Even the first-generation original card is considered a special piece of history that is worth the price. One of Sir Henry’s earliest cards was sold for more than PS22,000 each year. A first-generation Christmas card can be purchased for as little as 1000 pounds today.
