Publication Cost

How nice it would be to have a professionally prepared, full color, glossy magazine published for your chapter's membership each and every month.  Realistically it's simply not possible.  The cost of publishing is high and continues to rise.  Cost is the most inhibiting factor in publishing.   It is not however crippling for there are several methods of reproduction available to you and one of them will fit your chapter's budget.

Line set is the most expensive method printing, save engraving.  Using this method you function only as editor.  You give the printer your hard copy and he "sets it in type."  It will most likely be done on a computer these days.  He may also design your art work and layout in all other areas of publishing.  Cost, understandably, is high.
