Print journalism is making a comeback with PaperLater, a new app that allows users to design newspapers using their favorite online content. The app, created by the Newspaper Club, allows you to save blogs, articles and other web content and then get it delivered in newspaper form within 3-5 business days. It’s the newspaper lover’s salvation from the digitalization of media.

Even in modern times, many people still enjoy the feeling of holding a newspaper without the detractions of pop-ups, moving ads and the Internet. PaperLater subscribers can save anything from the web, by clicking a “Save for PaperLater” button in your web browser. Once you have all the content you want, a well-designed newspaper will be printed and delivered to your home.

PaperLater is similar to online read-later services like Instapaper, Pocket or Readability. Users are free to use any web content, but a lot of material is copyrighted so printed copies should only be for personal use. Websites that wish to be excluded from PaperLater services can contact PaperLater.

Newspaper Club is a company that helps people make and print their own newspapers. The group has printed more than 5,000,000 papers in 30 countries since 2009. The PaperLater app is currently in beta and is only available in the UK but may expand to other areas. Contact PaperLater if you’d like to get the service delivered to your area.
