This 3 lined-message is carefully printed onto paper strips, then skilfully 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 to you now for hand delivery, or can be sent on directly to the recipient. 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.
For something more personalised this telegram may be more suitable. You can add your own three-lined message and we'll help work the charm by adding a set of Santa themed stamps -
OVERSEAS DELIVERY ONLY - Please ensure, within your NotOnTheHighStreet account, you enter the correct recipients name and delivery address. Without this, the relevant postal charge will not be applied and your telegram cancelled.

Telegram is finished with hand inked stamps and vintage postage stamps which are new, unused pre-decimal commemoratives and vary in design.
