Those who can handle having their zine printed on newsprint love the Sarasota-based
I just got my new issue back, the first I have done at the Small Publishers
Co-op. It turned out great, it took slightly longer than I expected, but other than
that I am totally happy. Even with shipping costs UPS from Florida to
Washington, they were cheaper than the cheapest local printer I could find, I did
800 more issues for about the price I paid here. -dan
I also am a member of the Small Publishers Co-Op. My comic was printed there
and I am TOTALLY satisfied with the results. If you are small press with an
okay budget, become a member. Believe me, you won't regret it. They also have
a way to help you distribute your book for FREE, members only, of course.
Membership, I think, is about 20 bucks.
I printed 1000 copies, newsprint, B&W, standard 7 x 10.75 size, 32 page
self-cover. The print job is great.
I've been hearing and reading quite a bit about the Small Publisher's Co-Op.
Anybody here use them, and can tell me if it's worth it? The whole deal sounds
pretty sweet....too good to be true?
I've posted this before but...I use them for Global Mail and some other projects
and the only printing problems I've had were caused by me.
These guys deliver the goods. I've only heard good stuff about them.

I would add, since I just talked to Scott this afternoon, that they had to switch
printers (no more flagrant nudies), newsprint prices went up, and they can no
longer do 500 print runs, 1000 is now the minimum. My Global Mail run went
up aboput $100, even though I'm doing 500 less. He said they should have a
new price list and press date schedule out soon.
I swear by the Co-Op... Scott does an excellent job!
