Henry Cole, the first man in London to sell Christmas cards, sold them for 1 shilling in 1843. The money he made from these sales was used to open a public records office. 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 several types of cards that you can send. Christmas cards were first printed in the United States by a German printer in late 1840s. They were very expensive, and most people could not afford them. Louis Prang, an American lithographer from Boston, created the first ever commercial Christmas card in the United Kingdom. This allowed for a more realistic representation of the holiday and allowed for five million cards to be produced in one year.
