Hi everyone, Not sure if anyone will be able to answer my question, but I thought this forum was as good a place as any to start. I'm thinking of starting a small quarterly magazine here in Ireland. However, I need to keep costs as low as possible and am looking at alternative ways to print it. I want it to be free, but I'm not interested in selling ads (because I hate doing it, however if I find somebody else to do this, great). So I need printing to be as cheap as possible, and I'm willing to put some of my own money in at a loss or to organise some fundraising events if costs are low enough to make this effective . I'm wondering if I could buy an older, small printing press to do the job at home. I'm willing to do this if it means printing costs will be low, but I have no idea if this is possible or realistic. I don't mind using older technology or having low production quality if it means I can print cheaply, as I think I could incorporate these aspects into the design of the publication quite well. In essence, what I'm trying to do is not too dissimilar to this: http://www.yukoner.com/press.htm But I know nothing about printing devices, so I'm trying to learn. I'm trying to find out things like: 1) What sort of presses should I be looking at to print a few thousand copies of a small magazine? It will probably be A5 in size. 2) Am I wrong in thinking my printing costs can be reduced significantly by going the DIY route? 3) I know there are photocopiers with binding facilties. I'm wondering if one of these would be a good investment that would then enable me to publish each issue cheaply. I really know nothing about this, and I have no idea if anyone here does, but if anyone has any suggestions, ideas, links etc, I'd really appreciate it. Thanks very much.
