Archive Newspapers

As the world’s largest newspaper archive, we have over 200,000 genuine newspapers spanning over 100 years of history.

Newspapers provide an unparalleled glimpse into the past. Those fascinated by the past can relive history as it was first reported on as each newspaper is an original, with no embellishments or alterations. This preserves the history of the paper you’re reading, taking you back to the exact event or moment and seeing how the media and public reacted at the time.

FROM $59.99

This rich archive of newspapers is actively used by multiple platforms. Offering regional and national titles, our archives are extensive and unmatched. We supply newspapers to researchers, media producers, historians, and educational establishments. Newspapers are acknowledgements of the past, representing society and how far the world has advanced since. However, by far the greatest demand we have is for archive newspaper gifts, suitable for all manner of occasions, most commonly birthdays, anniversaries and life-milestones

Buy Archive Newspapers at Great Prices

Archive newspapers make particularly spectacular keepsakes for those with a great interest in the past. The recipient tends to find an invaluable resonance relating to a certain date or headline, triggering nostalgic moments from their own lives. A single newspaper can give the individual a direct connection with their past, be it the news, latest fashion, gossip, sporting events or prices of everyday items. Due to the size of our newspaper archive, we can supply an archive newspaper from nearly any date. Simply enter your special date of interest at the top of this page and you will see the full range of newspaper titles available.

Historic Newspapers has a full-time archivist who can conduct research on our newspaper archive. We do a lot of work for media companies relating to show development, as well as commissioned research by various institutions on specific themes. We are also asked to do research for members of the public who are looking for a past newspaper article – often an article in which either they or one of their relatives featured. So long as we are given a clear brief as to where to look, we can find the article being sought after.

Horrible experience. Never received the product and my husbands 50th birthday came and went. Can’t get a hold of anyone. At this point I need a refund

    Thank you for your review.

    We are sorry to hear this.

    As we deal with over 3 million original newspapers in our Archive, dating back to the early 1900’s to present date, it is only when your newspaper is picked by a member of our Archive Team will we know the condition of that newspaper. We do try our best to repair the newspaper, however unfortunately on occasions this is just not possible and the paper becomes unfit for purpose and becomes unsellable.

    An email was sent to you advising of this information and unfortunately as we no longer had any available newspapers for your requested date, our only option was to cancel your order and process a full refund, which has been issued to you.

    Please do accept our apologies for the inconvenience caused.

    Kindest Regards
    The Historic Newspapers Team

Awesome gift idea!

WRONG EDITION RECEIVED! I ordered a particular day's newspaper, and they sent me a "FINAL - SPORTS EXTRA" edition instead of the main edition. I had no idea they had more than one edition of that day's newspaper. I sent them a picture of the edition I wanted. Still no luck. And they won't refund my money unless I pay for shipping both ways.

    Thank you for your review.

    We are sorry to hear this.

    As a personalized gift company, the personalization for an original newspaper is the requested date not the headline. As there are multiple editions of newspapers printed throughout the day, unfortunately we do not confirm which edition we have received, as this could vary from each day. As you have requested the New York Post for a certain day, this is what you have received.

    We do not hold the information on file that is printed within the newspapers, therefore if a customer is looking for a specific article/headline, then our research facility can be used and our Researcher will go into the Archive Center, look and confirm what you are looking for before an order is placed.

    As your order has been processed as requested, if you no longer wish to keep the newspaper received, it would need to be returned at the customer’s cost. Historic Newspapers will only cover the return costs only if there is a fault on our behalf.

    Please accept our apologies for any inconvenienced caused.

    Kindest Regards
    The Historic Newspapers Team
