Special thank you goes to the coordinator of the category, tuixons. You did an amazing job at taking care of this sweet category.

Benjamin Eisenstadt, the founder of Cumberland Packing, invented sugar packets because he was working for a tea factory and got tired of refilling and unclogging sugar dispensers in his cafeteria.

Today there are many different shapes of sugar packets all around the world for collectors to collect. Collecting sugar packets is called sucrology.

Most common places to find sugar packets are restaurants and hotels, but in some countries where sucrology is common many companies are producing sugar packets and selling them. In Europe, there are many collector clubs dedicated to sugar packets, some of them even hosting international events for fellow sucrologists to gather together.

Several different uses were found for postcards other than its original one. Many schools are using postcards as the way of teaching geography and also postcards are used by libraries and historical societies to determine how a certain city used to look like at a particular time in history.

7,777 Holy Cards on Colnect!

Seven is a holy number in many religions, so it is rather symbolic that our Holy Card catalog has surpassed 7,777 items!
 
Italy is the motherland of Catholicism, so no surprise that Penisola appenninica is the leader in this category with 6,755 items. By the way, Daniele Pennisi [Lelecollector], the coordinator of the Category, owns most of them (6,717). The two following countries are Venezuela and Spain with 318 and 115 cards correspondingly.


"Felix Martyr (holy body)", San Giovanni Gemini, Italy, Colnect catalog
From aedicule-type to mechanic canivet, from digital printing to chromolithography - the variety of holy cards on the category impresses.

Jesus - Adoration of the Shepherds", Vatican City, Colnect catalog

By the way, the first holy card collectors could live even in the 15th century, at the time when first cards appeared. Not everyone could afford sacred image of their patron saint, but necessity is the mother of invention as they say. People invented handmade prints, and later on the Benziger brothers started to crank out the cards in Switzerland. Who knows, perhaps, some of Benziger prints are here on Colnect.

"Joseph", Pisano Etneo (Zafferana Etnea), Italy, Colnect catalog
