Free Printable Christmas Cards From Santa

Henry Cole, the first man in London to sell Christmas cards, sold them for 1 shilling in 1843. He used the money he had made from these sales in order to set up a public information office. The Post Office was born. It allows people to send and get cards without worrying about how they will reply. And while it’s a small gesture, sending a Christmas card can be just as important as sending one!

There are several types of cards that you can send. In the United States, Christmas cards were first produced by a German printer in the late 1840s. They were very expensive, and most people could not afford them. Louis Prang, a Boston-based lithographer, made the first Christmas card commercially in the United Kingdom. This allowed for a very realistic holiday image and allowed for five millions cards to be made in one year.
