    This is my pen tool. There are many like it, but this one is MINE. My pen tool is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. My pen tool without me is useless. Without my pen tool, I am useless.

    there is no grey area when it comes to 1 color logos.

      It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn't use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like "What about lunch?" Winnie the Pooh

        Awesome information!

        I think I want to start a magazine now. Definitely some good profit to be made.

        But how do you start out on your own with no staff. Obviously a good magazine concept is needed. Hmmm what do people love to read these days?

          where do u go for print?

          I'm currently thinking about starting an advertisement magazine but where do you go for the programs, which ones to use, and printing.. where to get it done.. If you can give me any information about any of this I would appreciate it. I am in the very beginning stages of this so I am trying to gather as much info as possible.

            To the last two posters: What is your experience? Writing, editing, design, layout, photography, advertising sales, marketing, or distribution?

            You'll need staff with those talents to even begin to succeed at even a quarterly magazine.

              Key's post makes it sound so simple. It's not really.

                Interesting! I'll make a note of this construction.

                    this information is absolutely amazing!! I sure wish I had taken journalism classes in college and made my degree journalism.

                    I did some calculations for my magazine and taking your numbers for the ad to editorial ratio, i'm still making money on my mag which is awesome! of course i used figures that i came up with on my own and i think that my little adventure will bring in some decent money for me and a few colleagues to live off of pretty well. i'm not trying to become super rich but just enough money to live very comfortably and most importantly i'm doing a magazine on a topic that i absolutely love to death. i love journalism. I get to meet new people and ask a lot of questions about the subject material and that's what I love to do anyway since I'm an information junkie anyway. lol

                    i'm so happy that i came across this forum because it really jelped me take that final step to go for the gold with my new found journalistic endeavor.

                      Just a reminder here that this post by Key was made over 13 years ago, during the boom before the bust.
                      Times (and prices) have changed a lot in that time.

                        printdriver: oh man, i didn't even know that! i wasn't even paying attention to the date. and i completely understand that prices have changed. inflation and all that business. but it's cool. at least the methods are still relevant, you know? along with a good way of calculating costs, and amount of ads to editorial. good stuff. i'm going to check on some journalism classes at the local community college to see what i can take. i'm pretty decent with some writing and photo editing and what not but i need formal classes for sure.

                            hey there, keyare! it's most definitely been useful but, I don't want to burst your bubble, but my magazine isn't available in print form. i'm using your information as a guide for my all digital publication, if it ever sees release. my efforts to put some stuff together for it were put on hiatus while I recover from surgery and now that I'm all better, I can start tinkering with it again.

                            but yeah, no print format for my creation. just digital. trying to do my best to reduce my carbon footprint/environmental impact and reduce costs by making it digital only.

                            i've gotten way more enthusiastic about the magazine now that I'm in a better state of mind.
