We’re celebrating the start of a new academic year by partnering with Cass Art, the UK’s leading independent art supply store and purveyors of our favourite back-to-school staples.

Shiny sharpeners? Clothbound sketchbooks? Origami paper for productive procrastination? They’ve got it all.

As part of #CassArtStudentDay, Cass Art is offering 20% off everything in their stores, plus goodie bags filled with top notch art materials (think Winsor & Newton, Liquitex and Staedtler). We’ve popped a special student offer in there, too – because we want to fill this town with artists and newspapers.

New sample newspapers are here!

New sample newspapers from Newspaper Club

Today we’re happy to launch our brand new sample newspapers.

We realised pretty quickly after starting Newspaper Club that it’s hard to convey all the nuances of printing in words. That’s why we started offering free samples. It’s the best way to get a feel for how your design will look in newsprint. Whatever we can’t totally explain, our samples have it covered – and people seem to like them.

After printing thousands of samples (and millions of newspapers) we thought it was time to update our design tips, with clearer information for working with text and images, and add new case studies to get the inspiration ball rolling.

We also worked with D8 again to give our mini, tabloid and broadsheet samples a cleaner, bolder look. Order all three to assemble your very own Russell!

Don’t worry – we didn’t forget about our special paper stocks (available for traditional printing). Our 55gsm improved, 70gsm improved and 70gsm bright samples got a makeover, too.

New sample newspapers from Newspaper ClubSamples are free to order and fun to receive. Collect ’em all!

A tour of our new office at South Block

Newspaper Club offie makeover at South Block in Glasgow

It’s been a few years since we moved into South Block, and Newspaper Club has grown a lot since then. We decided it was time to bring our Glasgow HQ up to speed, so we worked with Jackie Latimer from 3D8 (sister company to D8, who designed our new website) to transform our office. We’re really happy with the updated space – here’s a tour of our shiny, new Glasgow HQ.

First up, we needed a dedicated meeting space. Our custom laminate table comes from Color Papago and we’ve got some bright yellow chairs (CMYK approved!) to go with it. Our favourite part of the new office is a big vinyl sign with our logo, printed by Service Graphics in Glasgow.

We also put a wire up along the wall, so we can display some of our favourite newspapers we’ve printed recently. We’re changing them up all the time, and it’s so great to see the amazing and diverse newspapers that come out in every print run.

On the other side of the office, by the large windows overlooking Osborne St, is a kitchen unit from IKEA, which we use as storage for our samples, camera equipment, and of course – the all-important tea bags!

Meet new ARTHR!

Meet new and improved ARTHR

We’re excited to introduce a brand new version of ARTHR, our free online layout tool.

Since we launched ARTHR in 2009, it’s been the easiest way for our customers to design their own newspapers – just drag and drop content into a print-ready tabloid template. Our latest updates should make things even easier.

Here’s what’s new:

  • Cleaner, more organised user interface
  • Bulk image uploader
  • Choice of single page or spread view
  • “Delete” option for articles and images
  • Image and article banks so you can re-use content you’ve uploaded

We’ve printed nearly 300,000 newspapers made with ARTHR and can’t wait to see what you do with these new features. It’s never been simpler to make your own newspaper – try it out!

We’d love know what you think of these changes. Email with your feedback.

A new look for Newspaper Club

New Website Screenshot

Things look a little different at Newspaper Club today! We’re excited to reveal some changes to our website that we hope will make it simpler than ever to print your own newspaper. Here’s what’s new:

A new design

We’ve update our website with a brighter, clearer layout and fresh examples of our newspaper types. And there’s a new paperboy on the block – meet Russell!

Make your newspaper more easily

Get started with ARTHR or upload a PDF from any page. Check out our more detailed artwork guidelines and use our templates and export guides to get your newspaper ready to print.

More inspiration

Kickstart your design process by reading about some of our favourite newspapers on our new Get Inspired page.

Order more quickly

We’ve simplified our upload process and streamlined checkout to get your newspapers ready for the presses faster.

New, improved paper options for traditional orders

You can now order higher grades of paper stock for traditional orders. The new paper types are heavier and brighter, and won’t discolor with age or light. You can read more about them or order a sample to see for yourself.

We’re excited to hear your feedback about these changes! These are the first of many, so if there’s anything else you’d like to see, please tell us all about it.

Lucky number 7…million!


What we’re holding here is a very special publication. It’s the order that included our 7,000,000th newspaper printed to date! Big, big thanks to all who have printed with us over the years and special thanks (plus a box of treats) to Wash Design who created this classic tabloid for Lakes College. The paper will be distributed to thousands of homes around West Cumbria as part of a campaign to promote apprenticeships at Lakes College.

Instagram rebooted

We’ve revived our long lost Instagram account! And were happy to discover a whole hashtagged world of papers we’ve printed already in operation. Nice! If you’ve shared your paper, do let us know with an @newspaperclub shout.  We’ll also be sharing some snapshots from our cosy office so if photos of cups of tea are your cup of tea, please follow along.
