Telegrams used to conjure a feeling of urgency, a demand for complete, undivided attention. With the assault of communication mediums today, is there a single modern method that rivals yesteryear's telegram as an attention grabber?
The first telegram was sent a little over 150 years ago, when the first 2,500 mile trans-Atlantic cable was installed. Queen Victoria sent a congratulatory telegram to US President Jame Buchanan. It took 16 hours to send in Morse code.
So, though telegram services are still available today, one would believe that they are not so relevant as an option to deliver timely or urgent messages. But, how about for the purpose of sending a high impact announcements or messages that you can be sure will be picked up?
TelegramStop offers a service that mails the traditional looking telegram messages. The so-two-centuries-ago look & feel is perfect when one needs to create impact with an announcement or invitation. The company even inserts "STOP" to end a sentence instead of a period. You see, with real telegram, punctuation used to cost extra whereas letters were free.
For $5.65 (or more with options) you can send a keepsake message - anywhere in the world - for momentous occasions like birthdays, weddings, birth announcements, parties, save-the-date, grand openings, events or simply to send a romantic message.
Completely adorable. And relevant!
