About Us

Newton Press is a family run business, established in 1963 by Syd Howarth. The business grew with the new town of Newton Aycliffe and expanded its services to cover the needs of local people and businesses on the adjacent Aycliffe Business Park – the second largest in the north east.

Syd sadly passed on in October 2018, but his three sons now run the business each with individual expertise: Paul is Editor of the Newton News and deals with Advertising, Design and the Pre-press Departments. Stuart is in charge of Sales, Purchasing and Administration and Christopher directs workflow and Quality Control.

Newton Press publish and print Newton Aycliffe’s own local weekly community newspaper “The Newton News” which claims to be the first “FREE” newspaper in the United Kingdom.

The company specialises in General and Commercial Printing, offering a comprehensive range of products and services including general printing, business stationery, wide format printing, rubber stamp manufacture, screen printing, magazine and book production.

Customers come first and we strive to meet their requirements and to keep our prices very competitive. Our representatives are available to call and advise on any printing work required.

We are constantly upgrading, expanding and adding new machinery adding new technology as it is introduced. Our latest acquisitions include a colour digital printing facility for high quality colour with exceptionally quick turnarounds at reasonable prices including a new Karat 74 four colour digital print, which is an environmentally friendly machine using no chemicals in the print process.

Newton Press has achieved the ISO14001 quality mark and is working with the FSC (Forestry Service Commission) which enables the company to help the environment. We ensure all the paper we use is supplied from sustainable sources.
