Great gift!

We ordered a newspaper from 1992 to give our son for his birthday. They had the exact day we needed. Ordering was simple. And it came quickly. The gift box it came in was appropriate for wrapping and storing. Overall great experience.

My paper was a birthday gift and was well received. The only issue I had was with the time of delivery, yet it still arrived 2 days before needed. (Could’ve been mail issues). My paper was a beautiful and unexpected gift. I recommend it for those who love history.

Best Birthday Present

The book was everything I had hoped it would be. The inscription inside was beautifully done. The birthday person I gave it to loved it and immediately started looking through it. Thank you!

Beautiful Book!

Shipping was fast. The book looks beautiful, larger than I anticipated but makes sense since it's a newspaper book. I cannot wait to give it out. My bf will love it!
