Love beautiful Christmas cards? Here are ten FREE printable clipart designs from antique Victorian era postcards!
It all began in 1843 when Sir Henry Cole commissioned John Callcott Horsley to design the very first Christmas card to encourage people to use the services of the Public Record Office (now known as the post office). Three years earlier, Sir Henry Cole started the 'Penny Post' delivery option when shipping via railway systems created an attractive option for mailing more pieces for less.

Over 2 billion Christmas cards and over 500 million e-cards are sent in the US to celebrate the season. My Mom had collected quite a stash of Victorian and Edwardian era post cards through the years. Thankfully, when my parents downsized, she decided to give them to me (thanks, Mom!!!). I love using them in some of my product photography and wanted to share a few with you for your own collection. Credit and a link back to this post is greatly appreciated if you re-share them.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
