I am increasing the single issue price by 50 cents to $3.50. This is not something I am happy about, but I feel it's necessary based upon increased printing costs due to the four page expansion and the use of 24 pound, bright white paper. I also want to set aside a modest reserve fund for those months when an issue might balloon to 28 pages. Even if the reserve does not get tapped, it's nice to have something just in case.
For what it's worth, Scrollworks - my last digest format zine - was priced at $3.50 per issue. Of course, that was about eight years ago, so perhaps $3.50 isn't so bad after all.
Subscription rates are unchanged (and a hell of a bargain).
