My rule has always been, if you can't figure it out, you don't deserve to do it. This is contrary to the so-called "do it yourself" movement these days, but anyhow, beg borrow & steal. There are alot of ways to get free copies. I know all of them. I'm beaming them into your mind Chris, via the crystal highway.

I'm working on a zine right now and I think I'll just pay to have like 50 copies made, sell or give away most of them and then put up a free pdf of the thing online.
Then maybe a few years later I'll Ebay the rest...
As far as paying for it goes, I'll just have to save up a bit.

I think maybe the only 'secret' in self-publishing is to be bloody minded enough to carry through whatever demented scheme you come up with.
