BREAKING | I literally *within the hour* configured the GBXM|united bookstore over on Blurb to get issue 1.04 available for purchase. If you want a printed copy of GBXM, this is the place to get it. Just click on the image at right.
WHY IS IT SO EXPENSIVE?
I always feel bad seeing the printed issues costing so much, so here’s the skinny. Because we’re not a huge magazine with millions of subscribers (and ads on every page), the cost-per-issue price is going to be higher. I hope you believe me when I say that I, personally – as the founder and owner of the magazine – pay the same price you do.
GBXM|united makes less than US$2 per issue, which we will be using to either reduce my personal out-of-pocket expense to order more decals or offset the monthly hosting bill. I left all the decals I had in a Mitsubishi Delica outside Berlin last summer, and I’d like to move the site to a private server for better performance.
My dream is to build GBXM|united into a force for good for auto enthusiasts around the world. I want to build a team of passionate gearheads who make their living running down the stories that matter, that always put the people first. If you’ve ever paid a couple bucks to get an ad-free app for your mobile device or to get commercial-free music, I hope you’ll take a chance and subscribe to Gearbox Magazine. This is all for you.
