Custom Christmas cards have been around since the Victorian Era. 1843 to be exact, according to the Smithsonian Magazine and the Postal Museum. At the time, the introduction of the “Penny Post” enabled people to send letters or cards anywhere in the country by affixing a penny stamp. A popular and prominent educator at the time, Henry Cole saw his unanswered correspondence piling up around the holidays. Overwhelmed with the thought of sending letters or reply to all, he came up with the solution of mailing an illustrated custom Christmas card instead. Artist J.C. Horsley illustrated a family at a table celebrating the holiday, along with images of help to the needy. It had an area for personalization with the message “A Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year to You.”
The popularity of custom holiday cards grew, and people began collecting them. The modern Christmas card industry began in the early 1900s when the Hall Brothers company published its first holiday card. Their company name later changed to Hallmark, which remains a popular name in card manufacturing today. Over the years, Hallmark has commissioned famous artists, including Norman Rockwell to design Christmas cards. Hallmark cards are fine for some, but those who want truly special holiday cards opt for custom print.
Celebrate the cheer of the holiday season with custom-printed holiday cards
While we live in a world filled with impersonal texts, email, and social media, many people still enjoy a more personal touch. This includes custom Christmas cards and holiday cards. A generic email with a holiday greeting does not make the same connection with the recipient. We all enjoy opening a good old-fashioned Christmas card. It’s a tangible way to show friends, family, business associates, and clients that you care. Take the time to custom print and mail a holiday card this year. Customizing your printed holiday card is key. Unlike a digital holiday message that will be gone in an instant, a custom printed card might become a keepsake held onto by recipients for years to come. Custom Christmas cards can be found displayed in homes and businesses throughout the holiday season. As a business owner, they’re also a great way to say thank you for your support this year.
