How do I order?

2: Fill in the forms with your information.
3: Click Add to Cart.
You know how hard it is to find a TRULY unique gift. Well, now you've found one. Representing some of the finest, most outrageous entertainment you'll ever find for pocket change. You do NOT have to supply your photo, but it's better if you can (same price either way). The backs of each article are covered in generic, unrelated story text to complete the look and feel of perfect authenticity. Keep these for years in scrapbooks and picture albums. Send them to relatives, friends, co-workers, soon-to-be ex-friends and various and assorted victims!
A Common Question:
Will you edit or fix my mistakes?
No. We don't anymore. In most cases, when we corrected someone's spelling, punctuation or grammar while setting up the template to print, we received a nasty email back from the customer a week later, explaining that "Grammmy" really was spelled with three M's in THEIR part of the country, or that they left that comma out on purpose, or that Billy Ray was one word, not two, or that "nuclear" was actually spelled nucluler" in eastern Florida, etc. You simply MUST proof-read your story before submitting it, and have a friend or relative proof-read it as well. Twice. Or more.
But what if something you send us doesn't make sense? Won't we certainly correct it THEN? About a third of the stories that are sent to us, make no sense to us! They make perfect sense to the customer---but not to us. Usually it's some "inside joke", the meaning of which we're not privy to and will never know.
We print what you submit. Exactly. Period.
This product page is written for those who wish to write their own newspaper story or article from scratch. If you submit your story from this page, your story will not automatically feature ANY image or picture, unless you supply them. You must supply your own image or picture from this page. If, on the other hand, you want to use the image that is featured with one of our pre-written stories, you must submit your article from that product page.
To browse our pre-written stories, which come with their own images or pictures, please start from our home page and choose the category of story you're looking for.
If you want to write your story from scratch:
Depending on which size you choose, you may also fill in such things as the newspaper name, the newspaper headline, the article title, the article date, and a bunch of other stuff. Most customers send a photo of the event they're describing, and also a photo of the individual (victim) they are writing about. This would be inset onto the main photo (we do that for you). Many folks choose not to use any photo at all. It's entirely up to you.
If you decide to use one of our pre-written stories:
You need to figure out which one you're going to use. You should start at our home page (here) and begin browsing through the categories. When you've found the story you want to use, simply fill in the form, click the SUBMIT button and follow the prompts. You may use the complete text of the article you've ordered, or you may use bits and pieces of several of our pre-written stories (mix and match as you wish) to make one story. You may change our pre-written story in any way you desire. It's entirely up to you. We don't care what you write, or how you write it. We do not read your material in any case. You may send us a picture of your victim to be used as an inset on the main image, or you may elect not to send us any pictures. By default we use the same image that appears in the sample; you may add an inset of your victim or not. You should fill in any of the spaces you want us to use with the text of your choosing. If you don't want certain things to be used (like the date, or the location, etc.), type NONE in the box. That's all there is to it.
You do not "have" to use a story at all. Some people only want a headline (usually movie productions and playwrights). Some people only want a picture with no story, not even a headline. It's entirely up to you.
Whatever you provide, we'll print.
Whatever you don't provide, obviously won't be printed.

I have been using fakenewspapers.com for more years than I can remember. They have been a huge asset to the work I do producing corporate events. The quality is unparalleled. And their customer service is second to none
Not only did I get this in extremely quick time, it came in a bag protected from the elements and I astonished my Director. It looked like the real thing, and to have some of our story in print form, just as intended, made our moments even more real. Thank you!
I was a prop master for a low budget short film. My entire props budget was $100 and the newspaper was the most important prop. Everywhere else wanted to charge me $100 or more, while FakeNewspapers only charged us $37. This company was a life saver and the director loved how the newspaper turned out!
A great thing you imagined! And now its in my hands! Thank you!
