While MagCloud offers lower prices than MagForest, MagForest offers hardcover copies,
which MagCloud does not. Like with your choice or tacos and rock music... soft or hard?
PRINT ISSUE PRICING EXPLAINED
Copies of print issues are priced by our publishers according to the number of pages and the cost of shipping. Each copy is printed as ordered and priced individually. Prices may seem high only because our publishers do not offer the wholesale discounts you typically find in your local book and department stores. Our markup is only 25% per copy. We would very much like to offer retail discounts, but it would require a large up-front investment made with an established publishing house starting somewhere within the range of $5,000. Being mostly not for profit and having very little outside financial support, this is not currently possible. Thanks for understanding.
