The Newspaper Club, a service set-up to help people make their own newspapers has announced their pricing structure. Pricing’s not to bad once you start looking at printing off a large run. Output will be a ’12–page, tabloid–size newspaper in black and white or colour in quantities from 5 to 5000′. Their paper for ‘Last.fm Best of 2009‘ looks fantastic.
