Printing a Book In Color vs Black and White

Adding pictures to the header of each episode was an idea that hit me out of the blue. I wanted to have a picture that would kind of speak to what the episode was about to share with the reader. This was an awesome thought, but an expensive one. To decrease the pages and the price of the book, I printed it in a 12 point font instead of the 14 point I usually use. This brought the book down to 202 pages, but it didn't bring down the price for color.

Her's my dilemma. If I print in color and use all the selling outlets, the cost for the 202 page book would be a whopping $30. If I only sold it on Amazon and my store, the cost would be in the ballpark of $15 as a base. For black and white the cost would be $3.27 as a base. Those prices don't include any markup for profit.

I thought I would share this with you just in case you were wondering about the cost of color printing.

Weekly Savings Plan #32

Total Money Makeover

Welcome back new and previous savers! We are into week 32. I'm just checking in again to keep you on point with your weekly savings plan. It's been almost five weeks since our last check point at week 27. At that point we had a total of $378 in our growing nest egg account. Now we're on week 32. Here's the breakdown. You should have added $150 to the $378. Week 28-$28 + week 29-$29 + week 30-$30 +week 31-$31 + week 32-$32.  Cha-ching! We've just added $528 to our growing nest of money. It may still seem small, but at the end of the year, an extra $1,378 will be appreciated. Christmas! Yep! What will you do with your $1,378? Roll it over and pile on more cash for the next year? Invest in a stock? Take a vacation? Buy gifts? Have a New Years party? Just a little something to ponder again.
