Photo Christmas cards today
We may be familiar with photo Christmas cards. It is made for celebrating Christmas and sending greetings to our family and friends. The first printable Christmas cards were commissioned by Sir Henry Cole and illustrated by John Callcott Horsley in London on the 1st of May 1843. The picture showed a family raising a toast to the card’s recipient: though it was controversial that there is a kid drinking in the picture, the idea of printing Christmas cards was proved to be wisdom at last. Cole had helped introduce the Penny Post three years earlier. Two batches totaling 2, 050 cards were printed and sold that year for a shilling each. One of these cards was sold at nearly 9000 pounds in the auction.
Printable Christmas cards now could be bought, usually in a package of numbers. These cards may share a common shape but differ from pictures; in the meantime they are matched with envelopes.
