Our Newsbags are sold to major newspaper publishers throughout the UK, which means we supply hundreds of national, daily and weekly titles every week of the year.

Our customer base includes many household names and well known brands such as; The Sun, Daily Mail Group, National Federation of Newsagents, TNT, Trinity Mirror and Martin McColl’s to name just a few. We have made bags for the Royal Mint, Lord Sebastian Coe and even Rita Fairclough at the famous Kabin on Coronation Street.
