Came across this cool new offering from HP – it’s called MagCloud, and basically it’s like Lulu for magazines. You design the magazine, upload a PDF, they send you a proof, and then you set the price! They charge 20 cents a page and anything above that goes to you; they handle printing, fulfillment, etc. and send your cut back to you via PayPal.
This would be great for zines like Wayfinder for Pathfinder where they’re high quality but PDF only – this lets you give people the option of print without any out of pocket expense or risk! So FYI, PDF publishers… Give me a print option. I never use PDF at the table and even reading it, if it’s more than about 6 pages, is annoying. Sure, the price is somewhat steep, but it is vanity press, and you’re not paying it – it’s an option for those that want to.
