Product Description
Our original newspaper from 1956 is a unique and personal gift that's guaranteed to make their 60th birthday the best it can possibly be! Choose between the newspaper only or one of our gift box options that will also include a personalised certificate of authenticity, in addition to the recipient’s name and a message of your choice. 

What better way to own a piece of history than with a newspaper from the actual date it was printed. Not to be confused with cheap photocopies or reproductions, these are the real thing, taken straight from the archives complete with the distinctive smell and unmistakable feel of an old newspaper.

Choose the way you wish to present it from our standard box which comes printed with 'A Day To Remember' written across it in a classic silver style. The premium gift box boasts the same message in gold embossing, and is almost twice the size of the standard. The third choice is the wooden box. Lined with lavish red felt, the box features two brass hinges and a secure locking catch.

What Can I Put On My Certificate Of Authenticity?

Personalise it with a name in up to 30 characters, an occasion in up to 40 characters and a personal message in up to 70 characters to appear over two lines. 

We will personalise the certificate exactly how it is entered so please ensure all spelling and punctuation is correct. 

Please Note: The 'Newspaper Only' option does not include a certificate of authenticity. 

Choosing Your Newspaper Date

Simply select the date you wish to appear from the calendar icon. 

Please be aware that on dates when there was a general strike, one day strike or office strike, many newspapers were not printed and we are unable to source the majority of newspapers for these dates. 

We are unable to source The Times newspaper for the following dates:

1926 - 5th April to 13th May (the General Strike; no newspapers printed)
1955 - 23rd March to 20th April (general strike; no newspapers available for this date range)
1971 - 19th to 23rd September (general strike; no newspapers printed)
1972 - 23rd to 27th July (general strike; no newspapers printed)
1975 - 14th November (one day strike; no newspapers printed)
1977 - 4th to 10th March (The Times on strike)
1978 - 17th March (The Times on strike)
1978 - 24th March (The Times on strike)
1978 - 27th to 31st March (The Times on strike)
1978/79 - 1st December 1978 to 13th November 1979 (The Times on strike)
1983 - 26th November (The Times, The Telegraph and The Guardian on strike)
1983 - 28th to 29th November (The Times on strike)

Please note that a number of newspaper groups do not print on Good Friday or Christmas Day.

Some dates on which special events took place may also incur additional charges (this is because they are much rarer newspapers than other dates), but our team will contact you prior to dispatch to confirm you wish to proceed with the additional cost.

Gift Box Options:

We also have a choice of presentation boxes to help complete your gift. Our red Standard Gift Box comes printed with 'A Day to Remember' in elegant silver foil. The newspaper itself is delicately wrapped in tissue and carefully packed with the Certificate of Authenticity.

The dark green Premium Gift Box is silver embossed with 'A Day to Remember...' on the front cover and is almost twice the size of our standard gift box. 

Or pull out all the stops with the elegantly hand-made Wooden Presentation Box. Lined with lavish red felt, the box features two brass hinges and a locking catch that ensures the Original Newspaper will always be safe. There’s no better way to display a piece of history and it’s the perfect option if you’re looking to really push the boat out.

Really Great
I was really pleased with the excellent service that the company Getting Personal gave. They were really efficient, especially in reporting an error I had made for the dates of the newspaper I wanted printed. The gift was greatly appreciated, thought it was a brilliant memento. Thank you Getting Personal Team
