Right, after lots of thinking, pondering, wondering, adjusting, spreadsheeting, negotiating and absolutely no consumer research we think we’ve got our price list sorted out.
These prices include VAT and delivery to any UK mainland address, except the Scottish Highlands. (To be honest I’m not quite sure what that bit about the Scottish Highlands means. Do we not deliver there at all? Or does it cost more? Neither seems very satisfactory. I’ll check.)
You get a 12-page tabloid size newspaper. Quantities from 5 to 300 are in black and white. Quantities from 500 up are colour. For ease of comparison we’ve also included what you’ll be paying per copy.
So here are the costs for black and white:
5 copies £35 (£7 per copy)
20 copies £70 (£3.50 per copy)
50 copies £90 (£1.80 per copy)
100 copies £120 (£1.20 per copy)
300 copies £330 (£1.10 per copy)
And here are the costs for colour:
500 copies £500 (£1 per copy)
1,000 copies £900 (£0.90 per copy)
2,000 copies £1,200 (£0.60 per copy)
5,000 copies £1,500 (£0.30 per copy)
(More than that, get in touch and we’ll work something out)
As you can see, the more you do, the cheaper, per copy, it gets. These prices apply when you upload a pdf and we organise printing for you, or when you use ARTHR (our online layout tool that’ll help you design your paper.)
We think these prices make our services affordable for everyone who we might be interested. We hope so.
In other news, we’ve almost got all the legal stuff sorted out. We’re doing the last bit of alpha testing. We should be able to open the beta in the next few weeks.
UPDATE: International Shipping
Well, so far, prices seem to be OK with people but lots of you are asking about International Shipping. Erk. There’s no easy solution to this I’m afraid. Newspapers are heavy, physical things and shipping them around the world is going to cost money and carbon. Our eventual aim is to find enough printers around the globe that we won’t have to ship internationally, there’ll be a printer near you somewhere. In the medium-term we will be up for printing in the UK and shipping to you – but we can’t yet tell you how much it’ll be. Probably, on day one of the beta, it’ll be UK only. Sorry. We’ll get to the Rest Of The World as soon as possible. Huge thanks for your interest though.
