Last year Hewlett Packard launched MagCloud, a print-on-demand service for magazines, as a closed invitation-only service. It appears to work like Lulu, allowing the upload of a PDF created from any layout software. It’s now an open public service, and they’ve added UK shipping. If you want to produce your magazines ‘at cost’, then it’s 20 cents a page, meaning a 48 page magazine costs about $9.60 — or about £5 + postage from the USA. Printing is apparently done using HP’s Indigo Presses on… “heavy 80lb matte stock” paper. They now… “currently ship to the United States, the United Kingdom, and Canada.”
