Quality prints of the newspaper pages – new sizes and cropping feature now available

Posted on December 10th, 2012 by The British Newspaper Archive

If you’re seeking inspiration on the Christmas shopping front, then you might be interested in the quality prints of the Archive newspaper pages that are available.

Iconic and quirky front pages from the Archive make for superb prints and gifts, as do any containing memorable stories about family ancestors. With over 6 million pages now included in the Archive, there are plenty of pages to choose from.

You can choose to have the print just by itself, or you can opt to have a handmade frame for your print. The prints come on heavyweight, satin finish paper, and are sized A1 (841 x 594 mm / 33.1 x 23.4 in). The special inks used in their production ensure they will still be legible to your descendants.

You can choose to have a print of a specific story or image
There is also now the option of cropping a section from your chosen page. So if there is a particular story about an ancestor or a historical event that appeals to you, then you can now crop that story (or image) for your print.

New sizes of prints now available
The new cropping feature complements the four sizes of prints that are also newly available:

- Small: 210 x 297 mm (approx. 8″ x 11″)

- Medium: 297 x 420 mm (approx. 11″ x 16″)

- Large: 420 x 594 mm (approx. 16″ x 23″)
