A Trio of Fantastic Western Union Father’s Day Telegram Designs

This year for Father’s Day, I’m going to skip the vintage ads in favor of something much more unique. Here are three great pieces of Father’s Day ephemera, courtesy Western Union.

These telegram design templates, which comes from the 1940s and 1960s, are really something else. Funny how the image Western Union most associated with fatherhood in the 1960s was fishing.
