Behind the scenes

Our Next Grandish Plan...

Look what arrived at the end of last week!

We’ve been working away for a while now on plans to launch a print edition, and one of the questions we grappled with is how to distribute.

We’re going to start with smallish print runs, and it would be hard to get distributors interested in that.

So, we thought we would go old school, find some second-hand coin-operated newspaper boxes, and distribute ourselves. (There was actually a middle step of trying to fashion our own using old toaster ovens, but we’ll gloss over that.)

Next step is to get out the spray paint and stencils.
