History of Printing Holiday Cards
Ancient Egyptians, Chinese and romans were all known to send colorful greetings to each other during the holiday period. Printers did not see the potential in holiday cards till the 18th century. The Christmas card was sent by Sir Henry Cole when he realized that Christmas was round the corner and the annual letters to friends and family had not been written. He decided to hire John Horsely to create s set of lithographic hand written cards that could convey his wishes to all his friends. This very first holiday card was also intended to give a message with regards to the needs of the poor.
Cards continued to be an uncommon practice due to the cost of the card and the postage. In 1862, Charles Goodall decided to allow people to choose from a lot of design options. The cards had elaborate structures printed on them along with ribbons, lace and frames too. The Valentine’s Day card was actually a more common concept in the United States and became more popular than the Christmas card option.
The first line of Christmas cards was produced by Hallmark in 1915 but the first official holiday card was sent by Dwight Eisenhower in 1953 to 1300 important guests like American Ambassadors, delegates and more. It is interesting to note that the first official holiday card from the White House was sent by George W, Bush.
Today the range of cards that are available can send anyone into a spin. Each of the holidays or festivals has a different set of cards that is pre-printed with the right words that you may want to convey to someone you love. From patriotic cards to those that are eco- friendly, one can find all types.
