  • Would you…
  • … be prepared to receive a pdf, that was two sheets that you would print at home/work back to back, fold in quarters, then read as you were sat doing nothing or, doing something?

    It would have enough content to keep you entertained for about 30 mins, depends how fast you read, or if you found it interesting enough and would be about cycling – think of it as a very mini magazine – would include a comic strip on one little quarter.

    Obviously there would be a trial issue which would be free, possibly a new one every third week, if the first one had good feedback.

    Is it something you would be prepared to pay for, i’m thinking yearly subscription etc.

    Do I really have to print it out, can I not read it on screen?

    Does it come as an App?

    surely once you’ve folded the sheets of paper up the individual pages would be about the size of a phone screen?

    I can’t see why you’d print in that case?

    Could just be released as an e-book and paid for when downloaded?

    Print? Why not send by fax for the full 80s experience?

    I wouldn’t bother.

    Will it come with freebies? I need a new water bottle.

    You would receive a straight-up version as well as folding enabled version.

    how much will it cost?

    Would you print it in colour or mono? Would it be cheaper in mono? Double sided?

    How would you fit 30 minutes reading content on a 2 page sheet?

    I think I’m out though.

    And its impossible to read something when you’re doing nothing.

    how much will it cost?

    Yet to be decided, but value for money

    Designed in colour, but Mono is an option i hadn’t considered.

    Feed it back through your printer the other side up.

    A lot of content can be fitted in a small place.

    It’s fine I have a duplex printer.

    Of course it can, if the font is small enough.

    Very true, It won’t be too small though, 8pt, the focus will be on the writing, and entertainment, like it should be.

    Pay to have to print something out?

    8pt? Way too small for comfort. Are you supplying magnifying glass? 🙂

    Are you supplying magnifying glass?

    Only for those with a 3D printer 😉

    Will it be wipe clean?

    Will it be wipe clean?

    Mat lamming for page 3 is an extra 🙂

    Will there be a free key ring?

    I’m doing a page entitled “Muggins in less than 100″…. so if anyone wants to be “IT” for the first (and maybe only issue) please contact me (email in addy), if it floats your boat?

    First come first served.

    A Cycling related story about yourself preferably, vaguely related will do, if its really good, doesn’t matter if it’s not bike related at all, less than 100 words though.

    Will need a picture from you, can be anything you may like others to see, ahem…keep it clean. 😀

    I’ve also got some quick fire, tale of the tape questions that you would need to answer.

    Will there be a free key ring?

    There will be space left on the design to use a hole punch.

    People don’t like putting in effort for uncertain reward.

    Put some content on here as a teaser and you’ll get feedback on whether your work is worth subscribing to, instead of feedback on the delivery model.

    There isn’t, I used it to demonstrate my editing capabilities in what I deemed a humorous way.

    This will be the quality of this mag?

    I commissioned a colleague benefits book several years ago that was a5 folded to a6, the size you’re proposing. It was something designed for people to stick in their bags, pockets, etc so they had it for reference.

    I’ve just rooted around and found it. From what I remember the feedback I got was that the format was good but there wasn’t enough info on the pages. It was designed with limited text on the page as too much text made it looked crammed in.

    If you want to have 30 minutes reading material on A6 then you will struggle to make the design work. You need images to break up the text.

    You could always limit the supply to people with A3 printers 🙂

    Just my thoughts from experience.

    Edit: We didn’t ask them to print it themselves though 🙂
