Newspapers

You can purchase a high quality image of a newspaper page, to be printed in A2 or A3 sizes. The perfect gift for a “round” birthday, an anniversary or a confirmation.

Size Price Paper quality
A3 400 DKK incl. VAT 100 grams paper
A2 500 DKK incl. VAT 180 grams paper

Photographs are delivered with no special reprocessing. Because we often photograph from large newspaper-bindings, a “curved margin” may appear, which in some cases can make reading the outermost part of the page difficult.

The quality of the image depends on the condition of the newspaper. Production time is 10 weekdays and we will send the photostat by ordinary mail. Invoices are sent separately.

See the list of strikes (in Danish) etc., when newspapers were not published.

As a business customer you also have the option to order a digital copy of a newspaper for e.g. book illustrations, museum exhibitions and TV and film productions.

Size of the original Price Quality and size
All sizes 360 DKK (excl. VAT) Unedited TIFF, 12,2 megapixels
