Newton Press

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, production, and Quality Control.

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


We specialize 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 or email 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 five-color digital wide format top-of-the-range print machine, made to print on any surface or product. This upgrade allows us to continue to serve our customer's needs now faster and with a greater quality of print.

This new technology allows us to push our large format printing services to cover a new range of products - we can now print everything from banners to display boards with ease.
