Early types of these chromos would be fastened on wrapped sweets, used on letters, or attached to biscuits and cakes by the bakery trade.
As the supply of small chromos rapidly grew they were used by greeting card makers to add colour to the otherwise white embossed surface of their cards.
The chromo-litho sheet scraps were later advertised for fancy box making, screen and scrap book purposes.
