Henry Cole, a lithographer from Boston, is credited with the invention of 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. These cards were the most popular gift for friends and family in the late 1800s. There are many styles to choose from so you’re sure to find the one that suits your needs.

Christmas cards were traditionally purchased by friends and family. They are now sold for several pounds. Rare cards can fetch thousands of dollars. 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. You can still buy a first-generation holiday card for as low a thousand pounds today.
