Distribute Your Monthly Key Newsletters

Print your newsletters

You can do this by printing copies at home, at a local office supply store or order professional prints. Having a local office supply store is the most economical way in my opinion. They will be printed on high-quality color laser printers for typically much less than what it would cost to print at home. Staples charges about $0.88/newsletter (color, double-sided) while staples charges $1.07 for the same.
