Some groups like Stargate two years ago when I switched to pdfing it, we
were losing $241 a year because we gifted our champions and sitting
thrones a copy and only had 18 subscribers.

what we did for those wanted on a paper copy mailed to them instead of
printing it themselves is they were to pay postage. Hope this helps
