10 – Question 10: I want to Print out an issue/Can I buy a Professionaly Printed copy?
Answer 10:
The Lead Design Editor has high resolution editions of every issue, if you want a copy for printing at home this can be provided but the file size will be very large ~50MB. Professional printing is expensive and requires a large number of copies per print run (around 1,000 copies) therefore we currently do not print J-Zine. If you wish to order a print version, this can be arranged providing you can gurantee a purchaise of 500 copies, this is intended for re-distribution or re-sale use. Please contact the lead design editor Maiku_Ando by PM for print editions or printing help.
