    Hi everyone,

    Please excuse if this is not the right place to ask this question, but we currently publish small magazines (A6 brochures) in the UK and Germany, and are looking to do the same in the New York area.

    We've been shocked so far to find that it seems to cost three times as much there, is that normal? If so, can anyone explain why?

    Would be much appreciated, thank you.

    What quantities?
    And how many pages are these magazines?
    Turnaround time / frequency?
