A lot of kids are looking to set up their own small press publishing operation with comic books as their product.

Unlike the cheap newsprint komiks of yesteryear, independent comic book studios are looking at book paper quality pages and glossy cardstock colored covers.

Can anyone provide minimum equipment and resource requirements for a small digital press and desktop publishing operation so that we can be guided how much it would cost to run a small press comic book studio.

Print run starts at 1000 copies per title every month and increases depending on market demand. Studio is gunning for 3 50 page titles a month.

If printing will be outsourced to offset printers, will the cost of production be significantly lower?

Here is a comparison of the advantages of digital vs offset printshop.

Easy to operate.
Less space needed.
Fast production.

With minimum run of 1000 copies, cost per copy is substantially lower.

The above is based on systems in the range of about P2M investment.
