How long does it take to create and deliver my personalised newspaper gift?

What newspaper title should I choose?

The first thing you might consider is what paper does the person receiving the gift usually read? if they generally read the Irish Independent then that would be the paper to go for, however if it’s the Irish Times then we would suggest selecting that paper. Additionally you might consider where they are from, if from Munster for example the Irish Examiner may be a good choice.

Should I choose a local newspaper or a national newspaper?

Selecting a local newspaper will offer very localised news about that county and possibly no national or international news at all. A national newspaper title will not have any local news but rather only cover stories that are of national interest. It should be noted however that all of our newspaper books have a full section devoted to the biggest national and international news stories as reported in the Irish independent so if you go local you will still get a flavor of the national press.

What if the local paper is a weekly publication?

Nearly all of our local papers are weekly publications so we take the closest date after the date requested which will cover all of the local news events from the previous week. We still emboss the actual date requested on the cover however.

We only include one edition from a specific date in our newspaper books. However if you would like extra editions there is €25 surcharge per full edition. To order this format you would need to call us directly on 01 2952173.
