Publishing with comicXpress

When Cafe Press added "print on demand" book publishing I worked out some numbers for a few things that I have created and/or sometimes purchase. I recently discovered a comic-based print on demand service called comiXpress and ran some numbers to compare the two services.

The listed prices are "per book." Additionally, comixPress charges a $15.00 set-up fee and a "20% of cover price" fee. All listings are also assumed to include the comiXpress ad on the exterior back cover. (Inclusion and placement of that ad affects the cost per book.)

Thanks for the info, Keef. I have about 80 pages and climbing waitng to offend the world.
I have lookied into printing alot, and this is BY FAR the cheapest (like me)

"20% of cover price"
Didn't see that on the site. Maybe they removed it, or (more typically) I just missed it.
