Baby is here -STOP- telegrams are back in style -STOP-

I love a beautiful birth announcement as much as the next person, but they are starting to seem redundant these days. Now nothing’s faster than a quick tweet or Facebook post letting everyone you’ve ever known since you were 4 that the baby arrived….like, two minutes ago. And that’s exactly why I like the classic old-school idea of sending out a telegram instead.

Telegram birth announcement on Cool Mom Picks


Telegram Stop lets friends and family know the newest family member has arrived, with cool retro style and no-rush charm. (After all, that baby took her grand old time getting here too, right?)

It’s not just for baby announcements, either. New house, new job, new anything–even a romantic dinner invitation can all be sent in telegram style. Or use it as a fun twist on a Mother’s Day card. Because, hey, you’re classy like that.

Unlike the real thing, Telegram Stop gives the option of attaching a photo to your telegram. But I kind of like the authenticity of going without. It’s not like they haven’t already seen the 500 pics you posted on Facebook and Instagram, anyway. -Stephanie S.
