Personalised Original Newspapers
These certificates are personalised with the recipient’s name, the occasion being celebrated, and a personal message.
These personalised newspapers are a special birthday gift because they were published on the day the recipient of the gift was born. They have been particularly popular for special birthday milestones like a 40th, 50th or 60th birthday. Some of the personalised newspapers we sell are very old indeed. A couple of years ago we sold a personalised newspaper for a 110th birthday.
These old newspapers are a fascinating read. One can get absorbed in the news published on the day you were born, read all about the sports news of the day, and marvel at how much advertising has changed over the years. Being given a personalised newspaper does have a special resonance because of its personal connection with the recipient – people do like to know what was happening on their birthdate.
Archive of Personalised Newspapers
Historic Newspapers owns the UK largest archive of Personalised Newspapers, located near Wigtown in Scotland. This collection has been assembled over the last thirty years by buying newspaper runs from libraries, universities and government departments, both in the UK and in as far afield as Australia. We now have nearly 7 million Personalised Original Newspapers, with a wide array of titles – many of which have long ceased to be published.

We have a wide range of gift presentations available to suit all occasions. These range from our blue Gift Box through to a red Satin Lined Gift Box, the Presentation Folder, or even having the newspaper Framed. Our Personalised Newspapers are also available together with a premium Champagne or Spirit, including Macallan Malt Whisky and Martell Cognac. A perfect gift combination.
