Henry Cole, the first man in London to sell Christmas cards, sold them for 1 shilling in 1843. He used the money from these sales to establish a public record bureau. The Post Office was born. It allows people to send and get cards without worrying about how they will 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 different types of cards you could send. Christmas cards were first printed in the United States by a German printer in late 1840s. They were very costly and many people couldn’t afford them. In the United Kingdom, the first commercial Christmas card was made in 1915 by a Boston lithographer named Louis Prang. This process allowed for a very realistic image of the holiday, and allowed for the production of five million cards in a single year.
