Within its first year, The Saturday Paper had established a readership, holding a 60 per cent subscription renewal rate. Sales are currently averaging 60,000 copies per week nationally. In 2015, The Saturday Paper will be expanding its reach and planning a launch in Tasmania.

The Saturday Paper has provided quality and industry-recognised content. In 2014, The Saturday Paper was nominated for two Walkley Awards: Erik Jensen for ‘all media headline journalism’ and Luke Williams for ‘feature writing short’.
