Hot off the press! 8 newspapers to inspire you in January

Hot off the press! 8 newspapers to inspire you in January

Every month, we put together a roundup to show all the different ways our creative customers use newspapers. From a fold-out photozine to a broadsheet launching an Olympic athlete’s brand, here are 8 print projects to kickstart another year of creativity.

Newspaper for Allyson Felix's lifestyle brand Saysh. Printed by Newspaper Club.


Olympic athlete Allyson Felix is making headlines again — this time in a newspaper for her lifestyle brand, Saysh. The traditional broadsheet, designed by Mirae Han and Kayla Watson, is part of the launch of Home of Saysh, the brand’s stylish new physical space. After flipping through the newspaper, which includes a pull-out poster photographed by Harrison Boyce, readers can scan a QR code to join the brand’s new membership programme.

“I spend a lot of my time designing for digital, so it was fun getting back into editorial print design,” says Kayla. “We got a chance to roam free and play with our beautiful brand assets in an exciting way.”

Photozine from Kyle Gibson, following Robert Heule as he skis mountains upstream and surfs river waves downstream in Alberta, Canada (part of a film project made in association with The North Face). Printed by Newspaper Club.

Surf and turf

Surf’s up — or rather, down — in this cleverly designed zine from photographer Kyle Gibson. It follows athlete Robert — aka Bert — Heule as he skis mountains upstream and surfs river waves downstream in Alberta, Canada (part of a film project made in association with The North Face).

Kyle added extra folds to our digital tabloid after printing, to create a compact booklet that opens up into a poster (see how it works above!)

“I’ve had lots of people comment on the unique fold-out format and the print quality,” says Kyle, who used our heavier 80gsm recycled paper for his zine. “The finished product has a great look and feel!” He’s selling copies for $10, with all proceeds donated to Protect Our Winters Canada.

Fishbowl magazine from office furniture brand TC Group. Printed by Newspaper Club.

Sitting pretty

Fishbowl shows that you can create a beautiful, engaging magazine around the least likely of topics: office furniture. UK-based wholesaler TC Group created this 24-page publication to address big issues in their industry, from remote work to sustainable manufacturing.

“Using a newspaper differentiates Fishbowl from normal brochures and makes it stand out,” they say about the digital tabloid, which they recently distributed at the Workspace Design Show in London. Colourful illustrations by Billie Goucher keep the feel modern and friendly — there's even a pull-out poster in the middle!

Boozy Book Club magazine printed by Newspaper Club.

Perfect pairing

It’s hard to improve on the pairing of a good book and a good drink. But Boozy Book Club, which sends out a monthly themed book and cocktail combo, has upped their unboxing with a newspaper. The debut issue, printed on our digital minis, looks back at their first year of highbrow happy hours.

The Petunia Carnage photography project by Klaus Pichler. Printed by Newspaper Club.

Flower Power

Petunia Magazine is part of a wider photography project from artist Klaus Pichler, inspired by the true story of genetically engineered orange petunias that “escaped” from a lab in Germany. Klaus says the project, collected in his recently published book The Petunia Carnage, is a “tongue-in-cheek” exploration of the intersection of science, politics and marketing. Printed on our digital minis.

Luckies of London catalogue printed by Newspaper Club.

Lucky dip

Luckies sells unique and unexpected gifts — ever seen soup socks? This traditional tabloid shows off their new products — and new photography — in “a tangible, more personal” zine format. “Newsprint is familiar and tactile,” says designer Callum Collie. “It stands out against typical direct mail.”

Krowji community zine printed by Newspaper Club.

Community connection

A Stones Throw is a new community zine for residents of Krowji, a creative hub in Cornwall. Made in collaboration with the on-site Stones Café, it’s part magazine, part notebook and part menu.

“We wanted to create something tactile that people wouldn't be afraid to interact with,” say designers Emily Sorrell and Charlotte Higgins of Doorstep Creative. “Newsprint was a natural choice as it gives people permission to tear sections out and pin them up, add notes or little illustrations and make it their own.” Printed on our digital minis.

The Best Day Ever wedding photography magazine by Morgan Joyner. Printed by Newspaper Club.

Wedding ready

“2022 is the year that I level up my client experience!” says wedding photographer Morgan Joyner of More Joy Photography. Printed on our digital tabloid, she says her newspaper is “the guide I wished I would have had when planning my wedding.” Morgan’s vibrant personality comes through on every page and her thoughtful advice makes it clear she’s a pro. “My hope is that every single one of my clients feels confident about everything that’s going to happen on their wedding day!”
