The History of Christmas Envelopes

It was the Victorian era that saw the surge of Christmas card giving and receiving. In 1843, Sir Henry Cole, a British civil servant, commissioned the first commercially produced Christmas card. To our dismay, these early cards were often hand-delivered and did not come with envelopes.

Thankfully for us here at The Envelope People, as the popularity of Christmas cards grew, so did the need for Christmas envelopes. These were often plain envelopes, serving the sole purpose of protecting the enclosed card. Overtime, people started to get a little more creative. Envelope decoration and personalisation become popular in the late 1800s, with leaf printing being a go-to choice.

As the world advanced with new printing technology, and with the rise of the postal network, Christmas cards and Christmas envelopes became more affordable to the general public.

Today, Christmas envelopes have evolved and so has the choice on offer. Firm favourites like coloured & recycled Christmas envelopes, to more specialist options like pearlescent and recycled kraft pearlescent envelopes.

Popular Christmas Envelopes

The obvious go-to choice for Christmas envelopes are going to be your Christmas Green and Crimson Red. Year after year, these envelopes are snapped up in their hundreds of thousands. These coloured Christmas envelopes are available in a number of different sizes, from C6 & C5 to 133mm x 184mm & 125mm x 175mm.

In more recent times, recycled envelopes have been popular with crafters and manufactures alike. The rise in affordable recycled products has bought a whole different sense to Christmas cards. Deep kraft tones and the slightly more textured feel gives these envelopes it’s place in our Christmas envelope category.

A new range for 2024 is our recycled fleck pearlescent range of envelopes. These envelopes are made from recycled materials and have an outer pearlescent finish. They have a real sense of quality as they are made from 120gsm paper. Available in Harvest Gold, Champagne Gold, Autumn Gold, and Pewter Silver. We believe these envelopes will be very popular around the Christmas season, as they combine two firm favourites – Pearlescent and Recycled.
