The result of this very nice problem is that there are not enough single issue sales to make up the money lost on subscriptions. With the zine's circulation growing more rapidly that I anticipated, I am faced with two options: restrict circulation to keep the zine's distribution limited and affordable or raise the subscription cost so that I carry less of a financial burden.
I thought about it for a few weeks and have decided to increase the subscriptions by $2.00 from $12.00 to $14.00. I am not happy about this, but I didn't like the idea of limiting the number of subscribers either. With the fee increase, all production and mailing costs are covered and the zine is free to grow however big it wants to.
