Wait.
I'm totally wrong about that.
Blood-sugar must be low.
Actually, we're over charging!
We should be selling ZiP for $2.88 per copy.
Crudbuckets.
Maybe we'll have to start making it entirely by hand to save print costs!

I would like to do one issue where the cover is a stencil that we then
elaborate or add to by hand, so that every single cover is a monoprint
(i.e. unique), and costs nothing to produce except the price of the paper
we make it on. That'd be cool.
