    Not sure where else to put this so i'll chuck it in here.

    Basically, i am hoping to start a school magazine that prints off good looking issues every month or so, (about 50 - 60 issues), and am wanting this project to be something people can put on their CVs and in their portfolio.

    I told the school i would be covering all costs with printing etc. as I would be doing it myself, however, i have discovered that my current printer is unable to print straight to the edges of the page, it always leaves a slight margin which is hard to cut away straight.

    So basically, what pritners would you recommend for printing magazines on, allowing me to print straight to the edge of the page with no issues.

    Lets start of real simple

    - How many pages will each magazine be?
    - How much time will you have to print it?
    - Will it be in colour or B&W?
    - What is you realistic budget for getting a printer that will mass produce good images, fast?
