Default Newspaper printing


We're looking at starting a free non country specific newspaper that we will look to distribute in a few countries such as Australia, Americas & Europe.

I'm looking at getting an idea of printing costs per 1000 for a tabloid size newspaper with only 2 pages 4 colour the rest black and white. We would be looking at roughly 50pages.

I'm not expecting quotes as we've had some and I just want to get idea of how prices vary in different parts of the world. In australia we've had prices at around $0.20 per copy when around the 100,000 units and up. That roughly US$0.15 and $0.085 british pounds.

Does anyone have experience in having newspapers printed in say India or China. Are they much cheaper? Any experiences? Any ideas of how to make it cheaper (ie size, etc) would be appreciated.

Further down the line we would look at our printing press. Any information for a novice would be appreciated, even a weblink. But basically information like pages per hour, cost of operation for differents types, etc.

Thanks for your time.
