Vintage Holiday Cards from Crane’s Christmas Past

Digging through the Crane archives is always such a treat—we have more than a century’s worth of stationery designs, after all. So, in the spirit of the holiday season, we thought we’d share some of our favorite festive cards from Crane’s Christmas Past.

More than 200 years ago, Stephen Crane decided to make a statement. And it wasn’t with his fashion forward breeches or well-groomed mutton chops. It was with his Liberty Paper Mill, named so just two years after the British occupied Boston – and just five miles away. A tres bold move, if we do say so ourselves. Today, Crane & Co. still calls Dalton home, our 100 percent cotton paper still incites swoons, and we’re still making bold statements. Still not with breeches.
