Telegram Stop Sends Vintage Style Telegrams

The Card Shop: Send a Vintage-Style Telegram

I'm too young to have ever used a telegram, but I've seen plenty of old films where the characters receive or send them. The vintage style of messaging has always seemed so romantic and momentous to me — remember in Breakfast at Tiffany's, Holly finds out via telegram that she's lost her brother, Fred, in a Jeep accident? So sad! Though the Internet, email, and text messages have all displaced telegrams, until 2006, those signature yellow envelopes hand-delivered by courier were still available through Western Union.

The era may now be over, but thanks to a wonderful website called Telegram Stop, we can still send and receive vintage telegram-style notes. All you have to do is type your message with something memorable into a text box, and for $6, Telegram Stop will mail your message, translating periods and breaks into STOPS the old-fashioned way. Now the question is: who's the lucky guy?
