This firm began as publishers of lithographic novelties and prints going on to publish a very wide variety of postcards and greeting cards. Noted for their Gold Border series. Ullman’s cards tended to be finely printed on heavy stock paper and they had difficulty competing in price with other publishers. To solve this problem they issued a cheaper series of cards between 1907 and 1910 numbered 501 to 599 that sold for no more than a penny. These cards were largely artist signed greetings printed through the tricolor process.
