Henry Cole, a Boston-based lithographer, is believed to have invented Christmas cards. He was producing over five million cards per year by the 1880s. His cards used a new process known as chromolithography, which allows for realistic detail and coloration. These cards were the most popular gift for friends and family in the late 1800s. There are so many options that you can choose from that you are sure to find the right one for your needs.

Christmas cards were traditionally bought by family members and close friends. They can be purchased for several pounds today. Some are rare, and can fetch thousands of pounds. Even the first-generation original card is considered a special piece of history that is worth the price. One of Sir Henry’s earliest cards was sold for more than PS22,000 each year. You can still buy a first-generation holiday card for as low a thousand pounds today.
