Henry Cole, a Boston-based lithographer, is believed to have invented Christmas cards. By the 1880s, he was producing more than five million cards annually. His cards were made using a new process called chromolithography which allows for realistic coloration and detail. 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 purchased from family members or friends. They can be purchased for several pounds today. 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. You might even be surprised to learn that one of Sir Henry’s earliest cards sold for over PS22,000 a year. A first-generation Christmas card can be purchased for as little as 1000 pounds today.
