Hi,

I have done some research on this, but cannot write a long post right now. Maybe I can on Monday.

Hi,

I have researched into publishing a small scale magazine. If you only want to print a relatively small number, digital printing is normally the cheapest. If you want over about 800-1000 copies, off-set printing is often cheaper. Color printing is expensive. However, you can consider putting in just a few colored spreads or printing black and white on one side of the paper and color on the other. If you use a search machine, you should be able to find a digital printer near you. Another idea would be to explore whether a member of your congregation has a printing business.

Print on demand is a service where you upload your files to a company and you or anyone else can order small quantities, from 1 copy upwards.

I think that the owners of these magazines are also on MDC:

Good luck!
