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 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.

Good idea
Wanted the original newspaper but there wasn't one for the date so had the book of photocopied pages. Was well made and personalised. This was the suggestion of the member of staff who dealt with order, they were very helpful and made sure I received it quickly so I could send it on. It makes a special gift to remember certain dates in your life

Great purchase
I wanted something different for my Mum and Dad for their Diamond Wedding Anniversary. They are a couple who have everything so finding a gift for them was quite a challenge but I'm sure they will love this unique gift when i present it to them on the 8th March 2018. The red box it comes with is perfect so you do not need to upgrade and the newspaper has that old smell and makes such interesting reading from news, events, adverts etc that occured on someones special day many years ago. A perfect gift.

Lovely gift
I purchased a copy of the Time from the day my parents got married in 1957 as an Diamond wedding anniversary gift. The paper arrived in pristine condition, wrapped in tissue paper and presented in a beautiful red box. The certificate authenticates that is is an original newspaper rather than a copy but has no real purpose other than that. I had been trying to find a copy of the local newspaper which had their wedding announcement in but had been unsuccessful so this this was a good alternative.
