Biographical / Historical:
Lillian Frances Kennedy Pease was born February 3, 1855 in New York. She worked as a teacher until her marriage to Alvah W. Pease, a jeweler from Buffalo, New York (1855-1925) in 1883. Shortly after her marriage she started a greeting card company on Laurel Street in Buffalo. Her sister, Mary Elizabeth Kennedy Sandford, also created a greeting card company in Danville, New York in 1907. Pease used the Sandford Card Company as a distributor for some of her greeting cards. Aside from her greeting card business Lillian was very involved in the Temperance Movement. On one occasion Pease went to Ireland to take part in the Women's Christian Temperance Union convention. Mementoes of this trip are in the Sandford Card Company Collection. Pease died in 1933 and the company closed shortly after her death.

Biographical / Historical:
Mary Elizabeth Kennedy Sandford founded the Sandford Card Company in Dansville, New York in 1907. The Sandford Card Company was intended to provide consumers with a means to send messages to family and friends. These messages contained well thought out verses and images on products other than the typical postcards that were available during this time period. Initially, Mary Elizabeth created four verses with images and had five thousand of each printed by the F. A. Owen Publishing Company. The four samples were sent to two hundred bookstores and drugstores. Sales were later made with distributors and agents in various cities throughout the country. In addition, the company also sold cards to fraternal organizations using their symbols or mottos in the design. Eventually, fraternal organizations became a big part of the company's customer base expanding to more than fifty groups.

The company grew as a mail order business. All card shipments were made directly from Dansville, New York to forty eight states and countries including Canada, Alaska, Cuba, Japan, Guam, Philippines, Hawaii, Panama, and Netherlands, West Indies, England and Scotland. Although the Sandford Card Company started as a greeting card business it eventually offered place cards, calling cards, calendars, program folders, napkins, banquet supplies, gifts and souvenirs to its product line. All printing work was contracted out to lithographic businesses in New York, Boston and Cincinnati. With the death of Mary Elizabeth Sandford and her husband Frank Sherman Sandford the company continued to be operated under the guidance of their daughter Ruth Louise Sandford. In 1948, Ruth Sandford hired John G. Holden as business manager. In 1965, the company moved from Dansville to Baldwinsville, New York under the management of the third generation of the founding family. It continued to operate as a family business until 19?? when it was sold to John G. Holden. The company was later purchased by Rodney Pease the grandson of Mary Elizabeth Sandford's sister Lillian Frances Pease. Pease eventually changed the name of the company and took it in a different direction.
