Henry Cole was the first man to sell Christmas card in London in 1843. He sold them for one shilling. The money he made from these sales was used to open a public records office. The Post Office was born. It allows people to send and get cards without worrying about how they will reply. It’s a small gesture but sending a Christmas greeting card can be as important as sending one.
There are many types of cards you can send. Christmas cards were first printed in the United States by a German printer in late 1840s. They were extremely expensive and could not be afforded by most people. Louis Prang, a Boston lithographer, created the first commercial Christmas card in the United Kingdom in 1915. This process allowed for a very realistic image of the holiday, and allowed for the production of five million cards in a single year.
