  • For cities with more than one newspaper, staff will send copies from only one of them
  • Staff will search one newspaper in or closest to the location specified.
  • Because many newspapers are weekly, orders for locations with weekly papers will not be on the exact date specified.
  • If you want to ensure that your items are from the exact date, please select a city with a major daily newspaper. Recommendations include: Minneapolis, St. Paul, Duluth, Rochester, St. Cloud, and Mankato.

*The additional cost covers printing newspaper pages onto high quality 11”x17” paper and shipping in a mailing tube via First-Class Mail (delivery time: 2-5 business days after the order has been completed by staff).
