For those of you who have published zines, or are planning to, can you please tell what the print run (count) of your issue #1 was/is? Trying to get an idea so our team can get some cost estimates from a printer...

Hi -- I answered this on the fb post you put up, but it might be easier to go into more detail here...

For the Working Class Alphabet, I printed 100, but discovered a bone-headed error afterwards.... :roll: I subsequently printed up another 70 corrected versions. Those sold out in about a month or so, while the so-called "glitched edition" has sold some (at a reduced price), but not as many copies. Which reminds me I need to get some pictures of the 'glitch' so folks can see it's not all that bad...

For Night Soil #0, I printed 125 copies. They've been selling, but maybe only 1/4 of them are gone so far...

Both of those were released this year. I don't know if that's still early days, or if they've "come and gone" -- but I have noticed when I put out something new, there's a bump in previous products, so I have hope they will continue to move.

Are you on Google+ at all? There is a DCC RPG 3PP discussion group there: https://plus.google.com/u/0/communities/111508271028564548274

I wonder if it's my buddy whom I'm working on the zine with? Can you post where you saw it? A PM is fine if you think that's necessary

It's my first zine, but for Crepuscular #1, I went through my first print run of 30 pretty quickly. I did a second print run of 25, and I still have several left.
(This doesn't include the batch Goodman bought for the GG store.)
