Printed on traditional 55gsm responsibly sourced newsprint, these are real newspapers that don't smudge! Gift wrapped in recycled and reusable Kraft boxes


Your newspaper and its design & layout will be made especially for you, these are not templated products.

You'll recieve unlimited PDF drafts until you are 100% happy to go to print.


Sometimes I can deliver faster than the advertised delivery date. So if you're in a rush and need it asap, send me a quick enquiry and I'll be able to tell you if your date is possible.

Available in the following sizes:

4-page : Up to 20 photos

8-page: Up to 30 photos

A pdf draft version is provided before you are happy to go to print.

This is bespopke process and I like to have at least a week to prepare first drafts. From approval of the draft to delivery takes approx. 4 working days

Once you've given the OK all you have to do is sit back and wait for your awesome bespoke milestone souvenir to arrive.

You will recieve 5 copies as standard, extra copies are available in multiples of 5.


Tabloid newspaper size, 289mm x 380mm when closed (single page) and 572mm x 380 mm when opened (double page spread)

To make these truly unique gifts for you I need two things - the photos you’d like to include and a little history and information about you all or the intended recipient, so I can illustrate your story.


Supplying your favourite photos - I like to use Dropbox or WeTransfer but we can also use googledrive or microsoft drive if these are easier for you.

If you have physical prints then I will supply instructions of how to take great photos of these using your phones so you can supply them digitally.

I’m also happy to receive them, scan them myself and return these in the post using Royal Mail special delivery service - this would incur an extra £25. This way you also get digital copies of your chosen prints :)


Don’t worry, I have devised a fiendishly simple questionnaire for you to fill in that will garner me with as much info as you wish to impart, and plenty for me to use to create your unique papers and list the ‘did you know’ facts throughout.

The questions are simple and are designed for you to only be as revealing as you wish to be, one word answers in most places are sufficient if you are time challenged or rather not go into too much detail.

And they are of course treated with the utmost secrecy. They are never shared, to anyone, for any reason - these are your papers made for you, no one else.

Progress Reports

As we go along you will be kept up to speed with a series of proofs for you to ok or suggest amendments to. These will be provided as jpegs and PDFs via a secure online gallery.
