Entire (Whole) Newspaper Format (below)
The standard order ($39.95) yields two (2) copies ↓
Printed in color (some default images are in color, some are in black and white; your image (if you supply one, is printed as it is supplied to us, whether color or black and white). Measures 27 inches wide, by 23.5 inches tall, which is the approximate size of most full-format newspapers around the world. Unlike our competitors our papers are printed on an actual Newspaper printing press. Other companies send you your product on WHITE PAPER!!
The page featured below depicts the headline page which is set up for regular news stories. You may specify a headline, or leave it as a generic headline which is unrelated to your story. All pages are edged across the top and bottom just like a REAL newspaper. They are hand folded together to look like section “A” of a paper. Put this beauty in front of your
victim er–FRIEND, and there can be ABSOLUTELY NO DOUBT as to the credibility of your story. After all, who on earth would go to the trouble of creating a whole newspaper for a joke? It must be true! Backs and other pages are printed with generic filler text and/or ads. And it goes without saying that you may change the newspaper name (no trademarked or Copyrighted newspaper names, please) and date. This format is shipped, folded three times, in a flat mailer.
Full Sized Inside Single Page format (below)
The standard order ($24.95) yields four (4) copies ↓
Printed in color (some default images are in color, some are in black and white; your image (if you supply one), is printed as it is supplied to us, whether color or black and white). Measures 23.5 tall by 13.5 wide. It is set up to simulate a single inside page. Backs are printed with generic text and ads that are unrelated to your story. This format is designed to be inserted into an existing newspaper, such that your victim “stumbles onto” your story. Or it can be left lying around, as though it slipped from an existing newspaper. This size does not offer space for a newspaper headline, though you may specify an article headline. We perforate the edge along the top of one copy, and along the side of the second copy; there is no perforated edge on the third copy. This ensures that you have the best chance of matching the format of any existing newspaper. Also, we’ve made this sheet the size of the largest newspaper in production so that it won’t be too small to fit in to your local paper. We’ve allowed a generous margin, top and bottom, in case you need to trim it slightly to fit your local newspaper’s size. This format is shipped, folded three times, in a flat mailer unless a poster-tube (and no folds) is requested (no additional charge unless overnight rush shipping is stipulated; inquire about this option).
Small / Pocket Format (below)
You receive ten (10) copies in a standard order ($16.95) ↓
Printed in grayscale only (color not available for this size/format). Measures roughly 6 x 9 inches, depending on the length of the article. It’s printed in large sheets, then torn from the sheets, as though it was torn from a full sized newspaper. This is the most inexpensive option; still, it’ll fool your mark almost every time—think of it as the “Ford Pinto” of authenticity. It is also printed on the reverse with generic text which has nothing to do with the story on the front. This size does not offer space for a newspaper headline, though you may specify an article headline. These are great for keeping a few copies in your wallet to spring on folks when the mood strikes and the time is right. We’ve found that keeping a couple of copies in a wallet over the period of a week does wonders for its authenticity. This format is the only option available in “Small”. The top border is “edged” for realism. The image and text are, of course, replaced with your image and text. Bulk rates are available for businesses using the product as a promo tool or gag. This format is shipped, unfolded, in a flat mailer.

Other uses include: Homecoming parties, stag parties, announcements of events, employee awards, general office, restaurant or business decor, or to make a point loud and clear (add a dazzling touch to protests and marches, e.g. Headline: CLINTON SUCKS).
