Did you know…Greeting Cards!

Did you know…

– Christmas Cards originated in London in the 1840’s – An English civil servant named Sir Henry Cole came up with a strange new idea in 1843; he would sell cards that people could give to their family and friends at Christmas. Cole invited well-known British artist John Callcot Horsley to design a card, and printed a batch of 50.

The cards quickly proved so popular that Cole ordered 2,000 more. The custom spread to the United States around 1875.

– The first “Official Christmas Card” from the White House was sent by President Eisenhower in 1953. Many of the cards over the years were designed by prominent American Artists.
