70th Birthday Newspapers

Turning 70 is a birthday like no other. Individuals can enjoy the fruits of their labour and appreciate retirement. With this golden age comes a bounty of birthday gifts but finding one the recipient hasn’t already received becomes more challenging as the years go by. So, what do our 70th birthday newspapers and the recipient have in common? They share an abundance of memories.

The last 70 years have been eye-opening and the person you’re buying for has lived through it all. Other than the day they were born, perhaps the birthday girl or boy wonders what else happened on their birthday. We guarantee our original newspapers will satisfy their curiosity, bringing heaps on nostalgia along the way. Offering regional, national and even discontinued newspaper titles, individuals can revisit the past. Just pick any newspaper title and date significant to the recipient.

The newspaper will arrive with a personalised certificate of authenticity guaranteeing the age of the newspaper itself. This guarantees the paper has been validated by one of our archivists who specialise in the authentication of newspapers. They ensure the paper is supplied in optimum condition, with the quality near identical to the day it was originally printed. Since our archives date back to the 1900s, the newspapers are preserved under the necessary conditions, from the warehouse straight to your door.

For this milestone, we advise our personalised birthday book. Designed to portray the recipient’s life through newspaper headlines of the day, the book starts on their birth date and features a newspaper after each birthday, right up to the present day. It’s important to keep in mind, the older the recipient, the thicker the book and 70 means they’ll have many memories to reminisce.
