“begun in 1949 with four Christmas cards”

The Leanin’ Tree Museum of Western Art in Boulder, Colorado, exhibits the private art collection of Ed Trumble, Founder and Chairman of Leanin’ Tree, Incorporated, publisher of fine art greeting cards since 1949. His collection was born of a passion for American western art that has spanned five decades and continues to grow today. The scope and quality of this rare collection will surprise you. The tradition of Leanin’ Tree greeting cards began in 1949 with four Christmas cards. That’s when Ed Trumble started selling cards through the mail to western farmers and ranchers. Strapped for cash, Ed and co-founder Bob Lorenz started their business in Colorado by trading art for advertising. While Ed managed the business side of things, Bob, an aspiring young western artist, created a painting for the cover of Western Livestock Magazine. In return, the two entrepreneurs received an advertisement to promote their Western Christmas cards - all four of them!
