Henry Cole, an American lithographer, is the one who invented Christmas cards. He produced over five million Christmas cards per year by 1880s. His cards were made using a new process called chromolithography which allows for realistic coloration and detail. These cards had become the most loved gift for family members and friends by the end of the 1800s. There are so many different styles to choose from that you’re bound to find one that suits your needs.

Christmas cards were traditionally purchased by friends and family. They are now sold for several pounds. Some are rare, and can fetch thousands of pounds. Even the original first-generation card can be considered a unique piece of history and is well 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. In fact, today, you can buy a first-generation Christmas card for a few thousand pounds.
