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 4 million Personalised Original Newspapers, with a wide array of titles – many of which have long ceased to be published.

Gift Presentations for our Personalised Newspapers

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.

Lavinia Bradley Trustpilot product review 3 star rating December 1 2020

Very disappointed. Only 3 pages and was very disappointed as it was to be a special gift but I have now had to go and find something else. It did arrive in a lovely box but as the box was virtually empty even that looked a bit ridiculous. If you had made contact with me and perhaps suggested an additional paper , I would have very happily paid for an additional copy of another paper.

Poor shipping and poor customer service makes for a poor product!

    Thank you for your review.

    We are sorry to hear this.

    The item that you have ordered is an original newspaper from 1957 and therefore you have received a newspaper that was printed over 60 years ago. Due to the newspaper’s history and age, unfortunately the newspaper will not be as if you had brought it today. They do become fragile the older they get, however we would have sent you the best copy that we had available. We can see that a Customer Representative has explained this information to you.

    Please accept our apologies for any inconvenienced caused.

    Kind Regards,
    The Historic Newspapers Team

Newspaper arrived wrapped in tissue paper, inside a lovely presentation box. This newspaper was bought for my father’s 88th birthday and he was delighted to be reading his usual daily newspaper from 88 years ago!
