PLEASE NOTE -
Just a little message about delivery. We use 1st class letter post and orders are sent by Royal Mail. Due to Covid19 there are some understandable delays with their service. Please bare this in mind when placing your order as your telegram may arrive after the expected date.
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.
