Personalized newspaper style front page print features historical information from the chosen month/year. Please enter custom information and upload photos above. These prints feature a top news story depending on the month/year chosen, and other more general information from the year such as popular music and movies, world leaders, Broadway shows (1920s), radio shows (1930s), and television (1940s to Present), sports news, prices, and other news events. These are formatted to fit a standard size sheet of paper (8.5 x 11 inches) and are sold as either Digital JPEG files to be sent via e-mail or Physical Framed versions that are sent via USPS.
Our framed versions are printed on 8.5 x 11 inch Southworth Parchment 24 LB Specialty Paper and then put into a black frame prior to being shipped to the customer. We require customer approval of the image via e-mail before we print, frame, and ship the physical version.
A digital copy is included with the purchase of a framed newspaper, so you do not need to purchase both. If you are purchasing just the digital version, you do not need to order more than one of the same print as we allow you to print as many copies as you would like with the purchase of just one.
These make interesting and unique gifts for birthdays, anniversaries, and retirements. The current time frame on Digital Prints is 24 to 48 hours after receiving your order. The current time frame on Physical Prints is 24 to 48 hours to create, and 3 to 5 business days after shipping. The framed versions may take longer to create as we require the customer to approve the image before we ship. If you place an order, please check your e-mail for our communications.
Commonly asked from our FAQ about this product:
Q. I don't have any of my own photos, what will you use instead?
A. If a customer does not have their own photos we will use some of our own stock images. These images feature items that might have been for sale in the year chosen, such as toys, clothes, cars, electronics, furniture, appliances, etc.
Q. Where's my print, I thought it would come in the mail?
A. Unless you have ordered a framed print, all prints will be delivered as digital files (PDFs or JPEGs) to the e-mail address that was provided with your order.
Q. I just placed an order for a custom print, when will I receive it?
A. It usually takes us 24 to 48 hours to create the custom print. When it is completed we will send it to you as a digital file to the e-mail address that you provide with your order. If you have not received your custom print within 24 to 48 hours after placing your order, please contact us directly using our contact form and we will get back to you as soon as possible. We also advise that you check your e-mail's spam folder in case it has gone into spam. If you are using a tablet or phone to check, sometimes it is better to use a traditional computer or laptop as the file sizes are quite large and many handheld devices are unable to open the images.
Q. When will my framed newspaper arrive?
A. If you have ordered a framed newspaper, within 24 to 48 hours we will e-mail you an image of your custom newspaper to approve prior to printing, framing, and shipping your order. This ensures you can see what your print will look like and gives you a chance to check for any mistakes or issues with the newspaper. After receiving the customer's approval, we will print your newspaper onto parchment paper, frame it, and ship it to the address provided with the order. We ship using USPS Priority which usually takes 2 to 3 business days for delivery.
Q. I want to print this at home, what are the dimensions and do you have any suggestions?
A. All of our prints are formatted to fit a standard size sheet of paper (8.5 x 11 inches) in either Portrait Mode (Newspapers) or Landscape Mode (Personalized Year In History Prints, Anniversary Prints and all Digital Downloads). If you are printing at home, they look great printed onto a heavy parchment paper in an ivory or gray tone and displayed in a document frame. For the framed prints that we sell ourselves we use Southworth 24 Lb Parchment Paper in the color Ivory and we frame them in a black document frame.
Q. I have photos to include, should I crop them or edit them in any way?
A. You can if you would like, but we can also do that for you. We have a lot of different editing software that we use and often prefer to crop and resize images ourselves so that we can fit them onto the print. We can also do some minor fixes on photos such as color correcting and removing small scratches/folds or imperfections.
Q. Why do you need this all of this information for customization?
A. We use the information to fill in the blanks when customizing your Newspaper or Year In History Print or Anniversary Print. If you do not have all of the information we ask for, or do not want to include it all, that is fine too. We can create a more general print.
I ordered and paid for my product and instead of receiving it, I get an email asking for a positive rating. The party for which I ordered it is tomorrow and I will not have it. I guess I'll have to dispute the charge for a refund. Beware...
Loved my Personalized Newspaper Print!!!! Absolutely BEST Customer Service that I have ever dealt with!!!!!

We ordered the newspaper front page for my Mum 80th birthday. It arrived within 24 hours to my computer so I could print out as many as I needed.
So many people at the party asked where I got them from - they were absolutely the highlight!!
Excellent - fully recommended.
