Last month we explained the problems we were having producing a cost effective print magazine.
As a small niche magazine that is self funded, we don’t have the resources to do full scale print runs to keep the costs down.
Many traditional paper magazine publishers are going out of business due to the costs of production and distribution and its one of the reasons we started as a digital magazine so we could focus on generating the best content for our readers without so many upfront costs. More books and magazines worldwide are now read on digital devices than physical copies.
However, we understand not everyone has access to an iPhone, iPad or Android device and many people can benefit from the information we provide in the magazine. So this month we decided to see if we could create a magazine that is more affordable in paperback, so this month, we created a black and white version that we are selling for $4.99. Its really an experiment to see if we can make this version economically viable.
If you would like to see this version continue we would strongly recommend you to buy it online at www.createspace.com/4715451 or from http://www.amazon.com/Autism-Parenting-Magazine-Issue-16/dp/1497400082/
For the full color experience we strongly recommend you check out our iPhone, iPad, PDF or our newly released Android version.
We will soon be releasing a kindle version of the magazine which will also increase the amount of people that can read our magazine.

Ps. The April issue is coming soon and will be focused on Autism awareness AND acceptance.
