The Postograms 1984-2002
The telegrams that weren’t in great request with the public any more were abolished in 1984. As a replacement the Post Office designed an illustrated post card: named “Postogram”. The intention of the Postogram is that the user fills in the date when the Postogram had to be delivered to the addressee on the front lower left side of the envelope. At the same time also delivery on Saturday is possible.
The original price was 50 BEF. There is no postage on the envelope. The illustration can not be send without the envelope.
The Postograms were distributed for the first time on 1 April 1984.
