1. The Color Printing Forum Marketplace Forums can be useful for members who know one another well from forum discussions and offline communications and wish to post presses, equipment, or parts they either want or have for sale or trade. However, caution and good judgement should always be used. Especially when considering any business with anyone not already well known to you and trusted, due diligence must be used to confirm details and identity and be sure the transaction is safe before any money or property changes hands. Always use good judgement and perform due dilligence and follow these guidelines.

    I am currently paying to have a company print my newspaper for me. But the shipping costs are eating me alive. So I have been thinking about buying my own printing press, but I don't even know where to start.

    My paper is 8-20 pages long depending on number of advertisers. It is 11x17 tabloid size printed in color. It is also printed on high bright paper. I only print 1,250 - 1,500 copies per week. Right now I am paying $380/week for 8 pages, 4 of those color, 1,250 copies per week.

    So my question is what would be the most economical type of printing press I could get for this small operation? Or am I better off paying to have someone else print it for me? I realize that printing presses are massively expensive, but the money I would save by printing it myself would eventually add up, right?
