Can I get volume discounts?
Yes. Large quantities, generally 25 copies or more of a single issue, can mean a discount. The contact for that is Susan Stitt, morganstreetmedia@gmail.com In large quantities, we can even make books with an organization’s logo on the cover and its own message on pages bound right into the front of the book.

Can I get a discount if I order a set of all the books?
Not yet. Printing single copies of many titles does not yet create a price break. We’re trying to figure out a way to do that.
