Cheryl, yes, thanks for passing on that info. I'd been kind of figuring that should be mentioned anywhere this was announced so this one took me by surprise. By conservative estimates this switch to full color printing will actually cost us 10,000 dollars less a year in printing costs, about a 15% reduction. I'm hoping the new look might help us to both maintain and attract members as that is the real issue in our budget crisis.
Part of the savings is printing at a big operation instead of the current small one, with bigger presses to print more pages and more colors at once. And the new printer is a caver so is not only giving us a good deal but had a personal stake in giving us a good product.
