Designed to celebrate classic British telegrams using vintage, pre-decimal postage stamps.
Send a handwritten, crafted telegram message and a keepsake to be treasured forever. A perfect gift for an extra special birthday.
This message reads:
ON YOUR 18TH BIRTHDAY - STOP
CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR COMING OF AGE - STOP
HEALTH, WEALTH AND HAPPINESS BE ALL YOURS - STOP
This 3 lined-message is carefully printed onto paper strips, then skillfully applied to the telegram and the original stamps used date back to the 1960's.
To customise the telegram simply add the information required in the text boxes provided on the right hand side of the product page.
The telegram can be sent directly to you now or to the recipient for the date specified - within the UK only. Please select your preference from the 'shipping options' drop-down menu.
For the 'post on my behalf' option, you will be prompted to enter the addressee's details.
In addition to this we also offer a personalised telegram, where you can add your own three lined message -
PLEASE NOTE -
We post telegrams by Royal Mail's first class letter post - a 1-2 day service and cannot therefore guarantee next day delivery. We also prefer not to send telegrams to wedding venues, registry offices, hotels, places of work or restaurants; simply as the telegram may not be hand delivered to the addressee on the desired date and this can lead to disappointment.
Telegram is printed onto high quality, cream paper and sent in a matching envelope.
Telegram is finished with hand inked stamps and vintage postage stamps which are new, unused pre-decimal commemoratives and vary in design.
Telegram and envelope are posted out in a C5 rigid mailer.
Telegram measures 22cm x 10.5cm.
