I suspect that the Cavechat crew is a self-selecting, pro-digital group (ie, few technophobes are apt to be on-line here regularly). My leaning, at the moment, is toward the Indiana Model: offer digital copies to those who self-select with no dues reduction.
Unfortunately, there is no linearity in savings. That is, if 20% of our 9000 subscribers opt to go digital, it will still cost NSS 94% or so of the cost of a full run...we do not save 20% by cutting mailed copies by 20%. This is due to volume printing, paper size, etc. We do save close to 100% on postage, however. And postage -- along with paper and printing (the 3P's of Publishing) -- is a major item.
