A lovely Milestone birthday present

The Newspapers arrived very promptly in a much bigger package than expected and when opened was found to be most beautifully presented in a gold-lettered box. The birthday newspaper within was in very good condition, and the older one, though in very small print, was a very acceptable extra bonus. I will be the first to borrow them from the recipient, to read at my leisure!

Lovely keepsake

We bought a newspaper for the date of our first daughter’s birth. We chose to add a personal message and it came in a lovely presentation box and was well packaged. We are really pleased. The delivery time was very good.

This was for a 90 year old mans birthday.

This was for a 90 year old mans birthday, thats a long time and for him to see what had happened on each of his birth years gave him some memories he never remembered but then he remembered the rest it bought back many memories so he was a very happy birthday boy. The book was well made and presentable with his name on the front when I gave it to him I felt just like Eamonn Andrews
