Henry Cole was the first man to sell Christmas card in London in 1843. He sold them for one shilling. He used the money from these sales to establish a public record bureau. The Post Office has grown to be a business that allows people sending and receiving cards without having to think about how to reply. It may seem like a small gesture, but sending a Christmas gift card can be just the same as sending one.
There are many types of cards you can send. The United States’ first Christmas card was printed in 1840 by a German printer. They were extremely expensive and could not be afforded by most people. Louis Prang, an American lithographer from Boston, created the first ever commercial Christmas card in the United Kingdom. This allowed for a very realistic holiday image and allowed for five millions cards to be made in one year.
