Good to know. I didn't know First Class was cheaper.

The price I listed was for 3000 copies from http://www.jakprints.com. The per issue price gap between printing 100,500, and 3000 is insane! (100=$1385, 500=$1505, 3000=$2660)

I would like to have enough for local stores and Comicons. SLC, where I live, has a Comicon every 6 months with attendance of around 100,000 people. I want to have enough for a couple conventions.

Your art is so much cheaper than mine -_-
Unfortunately, I'm quite attached to my artists, and I want to get them the wages I think they deserve.

So basically I need to find a supplier that charges less for smaller print quantities? And print only enough to supply backers?
