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 finished with hand inked stamps and vintage postage stamps which are new, unused pre-decimal commemoratives and date back to 1948.
Telegram and envelope are posted out in a C5 rigid mailer.
