In 2006, Western Union sent its last telegram. A 150-year-old method for sending congratulations, announcements or greetings; it was the IM precursor in fast communication with the benefit of a hard-copy record for future generations to appreciate.
Wishing you had known to use it before it was gone? Looking to add a touch of old-world style to your special occasion? Just want a fun, unique look for your correspondence?
These letterpress telegram blanks are the answer. Handset with lead type from the early 20th century, my cards are printed on Crane’s Lettra “Pearl White” paper, using a foot-powered 1889 press.
Each card measures 4.25 inches x 5.5 inches and comes with a matching envelope, in a set of 10.
If you like this card set but would like a particular sentiment, invitation or announcement letterpress printed in the message area (as shown in the last photo), please convo me and I'd be happy to do a custom order.
Thanks for looking!
