Telegrams are sent by first class letter post and this is normally a 1-2 day delivery service. We also prefer not to send these 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 finished with hand inked stamps and vintage postage stamps which are new, unused pre-decimal commemoratives and vary in design.
