Clipping Service

Want to know what the press is saying about you?

FIND OUT by letting us do the legwork for you, researching 140 daily and community newspapers from across Tennessee.

  • Did you or your competition make the news?
  • Which newspapers printed your press release?
  • Is your new product or service getting mentioned?
  • What has the public read that YOU HAVEN’T?

The Tennessee Press Service Clipping Bureau is a dedicated staff of professional readers who read the general circulation newspapers from across the state. Every article, every word is always read to make sure we catch every mention of you or your organization.

Don’t take our word for it. Here’s what one of our clients has to say:

“I have worked with TPS since 2001 and can’t say enough great things about them. Foremost, they are very friendly, helpful and pleasant to work with! I have always received my clippings in a timely manner. The readers are very accurate and accommodate all my requests. Keep up the great work TPS, I have no complaints!”
-Connie Geddings, Administrative Specialist

The Clipping Bureau looks for any mention of your name or keywords that you supply, and promptly forwards articles containing those keywords to you. How easy is that? For you and your employees, reading through the sheer volume of newspapers might seem overwhelming. For our Clipping Bureau, it’s just a day on the job.

OUR SERVICE includes the following:

  • Newspapers from 93 of Tennessee’s 95 counties
  • Covering 97% of Tennessee’s population
  • More than 15,000 total issues read annually
  • And 180,000 clips going to our clients each year

Many of the Clipping Bureau clients use our service as a source for business leads. It could be a lengthy article about a key prospect – information that can give your sales team something to talk about. Or it may be no more than a small mention in a list of, say, Top Producers or Major Employers. Knowing who made that list can generate important leads for your company. Staying up-to-date on the news that matters puts you on top of your game and gives you an edge over the competition.


If you are relying only on the Web to retrieve published information, you may be missing the story. Many online newspapers only post selected articles, and others require a subscription to read the entire story. Some newspapers don’t even have an online presence and exist only in hard copy, so there’s no way for a search engine to read their articles.

The Clipping Bureau’s trained staff comb through the printed columns of Tennessee newspapers with a keen eye for what you want to know. They’ve developed a unique skill for sight and comprehension that leaves no stone unturned, no mention unnoticed – something a mechanical search engine lacks.


For those customers who want to know what’s being said about them ASAP, the Clipping Bureau offers E-clips – clips delivered direct to your email every weekday. As mentions of your name or keywords are clipped out of the newspapers, you will receive an email with the date of the publication, and the actual article attached. It’s the easiest and fastest way to monitor what the press is saying about you, your competition, and what’s important to you.

Save Money With Clipping


Before you call 140 newspapers to ask about costs of daily or weekly delivery, let us save you time. We’ve already looked it up.

The cost of subscribing to all 140 Tennessee newspapers served by the Clipping Bureau is more than $7,000 per year if you live in Tennessee, and your employees would have to read more than 15,000 newspaper editions a year.

Compare that to the cost of subscribing to our Clipping Bureau.
