100th birthday newspapers

Where do we even begin celebrating a 100th birthday? A telegram from the Queen will be on its way in the post, but what could possibly top a gesture so gracious and rare? How about a personalised 100th birthday certificate? Receiving a letter of acknowledgment from the Queen is about as good as it gets for a centennial, but a keepsake made by yours truly will probably mean the world to the individual.

After 100 years, the recipient has probably seen it all. There’s always a breaking story in the news and mind-blowing gadget on the market; the element of surprise is so rare. So, why not take them back into the past instead? A 100th birthday newspaper is eye opening; history is brimming in abundance, and most importantly, nostalgia. A single headline, advert or photograph could bring back a wealth of special memories. It’s the pivotal reason our birthday newspapers are unique and like no other.

A 100th Birthday Certificate Like No Other

Including popular newspaper titles such as The Times, The Guardian, Evening Standard, Financial Times, Illustrated London News and much more, you get to choose the headline of your birthday keepsake. The newspaper you select will be accompanied by a personalised certificate of authenticity guaranteeing the age of the paper itself, and will also validated by one of our archivists.

We want every personalised element of your 100th birthday newspaper to wow the receiver and make a lasting impression. Ideally, for this milestone, a birthday newspaper book would do the milestone justice. The more years the recipient has lived, the more the newspaper content inside the book, meaning more valuable moments to reminisce. The result is a keepsake equal to 100 years of their worth and as extraordinary as they definitely are.
