Raise a glass

Minum Selections is a natural wine distributor based in Chicago. For a special event with champagne maker Clémence Lelarge, they “wanted guests to leave with an object that's beautiful, tactile and informative.”

With this tabloid, the front and back covers provide details of the event — then it folds out into a poster of a dreamy solar system in a wine glass.

“Printed pieces demand undivided attention more than digital imagery,” says designer Olen Amelia. “We love the 4-page tabloid because it serves the dual purpose of an informative brochure and a poster worthy of being framed. Customers love the vibrancy of the colors and how smart it is to use the newspaper as a poster!”

Creative camp

With their in-person camps still on hold, the Nasher Sculpture Center in Dallas created this zine to encourage DIY exploration and creativity.

“We've seen students growing tired of being on digital teaching platforms,” says illustrator Colleen Borsh. “So we developed a hands-on booklet that will hopefully spark some messy, fun and unexpected creativity at home.” After the success of several past projects printed with Newspaper Club, “we knew this would be more of the same magic that comes from print!”

Medal-worthy market

Inspired by Japan’s shōtengai shopping districts, Beams & Co curated a mix of stalls featuring Japanese homeware and food in celebration of the Tokyo Olympics. The stalls popped up at Coal Drops Yard in London over three weekends in July and August.

“We felt it was the best format to give a sense of a local community event,” says designer Peter Stitson of this newspaper, which offers an overview of the vendors. Inside are also portraits of Paralympic athletes by photographer Mika Ninagawa and the back cover features a letterpress artwork — Make Ramen Now War — by Problem Press.

Art in Arbroath

Postponed for a year, the Arbroath Festival is back this summer in Angus, Scotland. The Abroath2020+1 guide features a programme of (socially distanced) events plus original artworks and writing from the local creative community.

Creative producer Pippa Martin says they chose newsprint because it’s “bright and eye-catching with lots of space for content” and it was easy to add more pages as the project grew. “People have requested additional copies as they want one as a keepsake!”

Media kit zine for Southwest Contemporary magazine. Printed by Newspaper Club.

Smart art

Southwest Contemporary is an art and culture magazine based in Santa Fe, New Mexico. They publish their media kit as a "zine", spotlighting their editorial and showcasing the artists they work with (like Tucson-based Lex Gjurasic, who illustrated the cover of the zine.)

The mini newspaper allows them to present their different marketing and advertising options in a clear, convenient way — and it’s affordable to reorder as information is updated throughout the year.

“Clients always comment on how great our printed media kit looks and how helpful it is to have a printed product on hand for reference,” says publisher Lauren Tresp. “It helps us present our brand in a polished way and convey to our clients that we take our work — and theirs — seriously.”

Cooked to perfection

The Field Company makes smoother, lighter cast iron skillets reminiscent of the greatest vintage pans. They're sending this catalogue to retailers interested in stocking their products.

“We wanted to inspire at-home use and tell the story of our products through standout imagery and delicious recipes,” says designer Regan Johnson. “The tactile newspaper format continues the tradition of a vintage feel, but with a modern twist.”

"A Guide to Navigating Lighting at Night" zine by Signal Station North. Printed by Newspaper Club.

Lighten up

Signal Station North is a public space initiative for Central Baltimore. This is one of two zines they’ve printed with us to educate people about local lighting infrastructure and how it impacts the community.

“So many resources are online now, but we wanted to offer something that everyone — whether they have internet or not — could interact with,” says program manager Merrell Hambleton. “A newspaper is familiar and approachable. You can read it in bits and pieces, tuck it under your arm, finish it or not, then use it as wrapping paper or a tablecloth.”

So far they’ve distributed over 300 copies via newspaper boxes in Baltimore’s Arts District. “One former City employee said about the zine: ‘Yes to transparency! If only all City infrastructure processes were spelled out like this.’ That made us really happy to hear,” says Merrell.

Hoppy headliner

Cumbria-based brewery Lakes Brew Co worked with Scratch Creative to create this colourful catalogue and price list. “It gives us a point of difference,” says co-founder Michelle Gay. “It’s eye-catching and will be read — not just thrown on a desk.”

Tea time

Specialist tea and coffee company Edgcumbe’s is celebrating forty years in business with a look back at their journey so far. They shared a timeline of old photos — from 1981 through 2021 — and added a crossword for customers to win a free coffee.

“The tabloid was the perfect size - something to grab and go for our customers!” says brand manager Vicki Isted. “They absolutely love it and it's wonderful to see people reading it in the sunny courtyard next to our roastery.”
